If you’ve ever wanted proper boating attire, look no further than Nautica Competition. Combining classic nautical style with streetwear silhouettes inspired by past decades, Nautica’s subbrand Nautica Competition has been bringing a refreshed feel and spirit to the brand’s signature sailing heritage since its revival in 2018.

Originally launched in 1996 by designer David Chu, over a decade after its parent brand’s introduction in 1983, Nautica Competition was relaunched in 2018 after a short hiatus with a capsule collection designed by rapper Lil Yachty, who acted as a creative director for the brand at the time.

Nautica Competition’s latest collection continues to fuse its seafaring style and striking color palette with comfortable and functional streetwear-inspired silhouettes. The result is an extensive collection of men’s and women’s wear, perfect for layering in the colder months. From hoodies and polos to sweatpants and padded jackets, the Fall/Winter 2021 line offers vibrant staples pieces with nautical charm.

But don’t just take it from us, here are a few of our favorite looks from Instagram featuring pieces from the Nautica Competition’s new collection.
