Fashion Fix - Ahoy Matey!

Dec 19 2017, 6:02 am

It’s pretty cool to have friends, but do you know what’s even cooler? Having friends with yachts! Inspired by our city’s recent arrival of summer, (and the influx of boat party photos on my twitter/instagram feed) – I present to you how to look sailor friendly for all ocassions!

The must haves:

No photo op is complete without a still shot of your hair and scarf blowing into the wind while your lips pout a perfect shade of come hither red. And of course a little reminder that lovin’ a sailor has never been so convenient fun! Alexander McQueen scarf / Sailor poster / Alloy duffel bag / Cord navy bracelet / M.A.C. Hey Sailor lipstick

Beginner’s outfit– Not sure what I’m doing on the boat.

Who needs to know bown from stern when your shorts are this cute!? Aritzia Newport shirt / Aritzia Anchor shorts / TOMS Bimini shoes

Casual outfit– I think I get the hang of it.

White pants are always a murky subject as rarely are they done properly (thanks Vancouver), but for yacht go-ers, they’re a staple, crisp, clean and very summer chic! Add a sheer top and you’re golden! Classic and fabulous.  Alexander Wang blouse / Topshop jeans / Vans classic sneakers / Ray-Ban aviators

Ultimate outfit– pass me the champagne, time to pop bottles.

Now this is the ultimate ensemble for a true yacht vet. Wedges on an unstable ground? Check. Floppy hat for unpredictable wind? Check. In case anyone doubts this outfit as being nautical, the anchor earrings should do the trick.  Floppy hat / Vince Camuto wedges / Striped peplum dress / Navy links necklace / Anchor studs

Not all of us are fortunate enough to be frolicking on yachts all summer but it doesn’t mean we can’t look the part 🙂
