April 15, 2020

Summer is almost here! You know what that means: yacht parties.

You want to look your best when attending a party onboard a yacht or at the yacht club. Yachting attire doesn’t have to be expensive.

Trying to figure out what to wear on a yacht? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Read our style guide post below.

What to Wear on a Yacht: Nautical Attire

A fun navy and striped button-down with a casual pair of white shorts is a versatile yachting outfit. Tuck your shirt into your shorts or tie it up around your waist.

You can even wear it as a cover-up over your swimsuit. We love the navy and white stripe nautical print. Many designers have nautical prints or designs in their summer lines to choose from.

Protect Your Skin From the Sun

A straw hat or fedora is a perfect complement to most yachting outfits. Just make sure it doesn’t blow away!

Yacht charters or personal yachts are going to be in direct sunlight for most of the day. Bring along this hat and your skin will thank you. And while you’re at it put on some sunscreen!

Shoes With Rubber Soles

A pair of shoes with rubber soles is a must when your onboard a yacht. These boats can get slippery if the deck is wet and it better to be safe than sorry.

Many different types of rubber-soled shoes will complement most yacht wear. We love a pair of woven raffia espadrilles. If you want to wear heels, look for a pair that has a non-slip grip on the bottom to avoid an accident.

Layers Are Key

Still wondering what to wear on a yacht party? Sometimes it’s best to bring multiple options.

Dressing in layers can be helpful when onboard a yacht as storms can pop up out of nowhere. It can also be quite cold in the wind. Pair different textures or patterns for a unique yachting look.

Don’t Forget the Sunnies

Sunglasses are an essential part of yacht attire. The reflection of the sun’s light off the water can be blinding.

Come prepared with your favorite shades. We love a white frame that leans on the preppy side or a classic tortoiseshell frame.

Cocktail Attire

When attending a yacht cocktail party, wear a knee-length dress. Look for lightweight fabrics and solid colors or minimalist prints.

The always perfect “little black dress” works well for this occasion. Just make sure it’s not too skimpy.

Your cocktail yacht attire should look classy. Dress it up with some nautical looking accessories and you will be ready for cocktail hour in no time.
