18 November 2021

Whether you’re chartering a luxury yacht, enjoying festive cruises or invited onboard a stunning motor yacht, you will need to find the right outfit. It’s easy to choose something stylish yet practical for your boating adventure. Just follow these six tips to stand out from the crowd!

Here are our 6 top tips in choosing the perfect outfit:

1.Wear nautical colours:

You can’t go wrong wearing traditional sailing flag colours. Blue, white, brown and tan with dashes of red, yellow and green will make you look summer ready and super chic. Avoid black and dark colours in the heat of the summer.

Our pick: Summer shirts in nautical colours and patterns are a speciality for Latitude Men’s Clothing. And can be matched with a pair of light linen shorts to keep you feeling cool.


2.Choose a relaxed fit

Practicality and comfort are essential when deciding an outfit for boating. Ensure you are wearing breathable layers and light colours – simple colours like white will make you stand out. The crisp and cleanness of white will instantly make you radiant.  From linen shirts for men with rolled sleeves to light cotton dresses for women, white never goes out of style.

There is nothing worse than a flying dress! Avoid loose fitted dresses and opt for an off-shoulder maxi dress or a jumpsuit that will help you look lovely while at the same time, making it possible for you to enjoy the salty breeze

There is perhaps no boating wardrobe essential quite as crucial as swimwear.
