Yachty by Nature

Yacht rock outfits, yacht rock outfits 101.

Whether you just discovered the art of smooth or been digging smooth soft rock for a while now, the subject of Yacht Rock Outfits is on your mind. Let me just say, for those about to dock, we salute you. There is an unmistakable moment when Yacht Rock is revealed to you. For me, it happened at a fancy industry party in LA. This fab girl came up and mic dropped it so smoothly to my then 80’s band, Neon Nation , saying “you guys play any yacht rock”? Holy crap, I pretty much spit out my drink and fell to the floor wondering what I was in for.

“You walked in to the party, like you were walking onto a yacht.”

Yachty Attire

The rest is history and I’m now well into 7 years of playing keyboards in a nationally successful yacht rock band, Yachty by Nature . No doubt, I’m living that dream and it goes without saying, I’m deep in the yacht myself. With weekly yacht party after monthly yacht wedding and more, I’m becoming a Yacht Attire expert in thought and practice and already guiding the band and others in this area of fashion.

Truly, if you get the clothing right, enough people with that common goal, just add yacht music and the fun ensues. Truth be told, I’ve watched as a room full of punk rockers that committed to the groovy, eclectic yacht rock dress code transformed like you wouldn’t believe.  They turned a simple celebration with a yacht rock band into a full scale 1978 throwback LOVE FEST and the clothes were off the hook. The energy, the vibe, the clothes, the music became something so magical all its own. Build the yacht and they will sail to it.

So, next time you are having a yacht party or watching your favorite yacht rock band indulge yourself with an epic outfit that will make all it happen. It’s not just the music, the band, the vibe, the look, the energy. It’s the sum of its parts and those smooth outfits have the mighty power to transfix your situation.

The Captain’s Hat…

Yep, you guessed it, the fastest coronation to yacht rock royalty is the Captain’s Hat.  Buy one, make one, bedazzle one or borrow one. In fact, the sky is the limit here so let your creativity reign if you are gonna go for it.  But, just get one somehow, some way and you are on the yacht. In fact, Broner makes a very comfortable, quality, straightforward and good looking hat that fits well.  Additionally, it avoids the cheap fit and look of those basic hats on Amazon. Do yourself a favor, get a hat or dig deep in the vault and find a classic, vintage, or authentic captain’s hat online. Additionally, we’ve seen some pretty cool and unique creations out there, but for simplicity, fit, and value, Broner is the answer.  Lastly, remember what Hefner did for the captains hat!

Yacht Rock Stripes get it done…

No matter what color, stripes will be the 2nd easiest way to begin your yacht fashion transformation. Put on a red and white striped shirt (or blue or black mainly) and you’ll be sailing in no time. In fact, stripes are probably the #1 most sighted outfit at a yacht rock party. Just know that it’s only the start. When you accessorize over the stripes with a complementary pant color or scarf, ascot, belt, and obviously the captain’s hat or more, you’ve earned your captain’s bars quicker than you can say Ship Shape! Don’t forget to keep it simple, too much or conflicting stripes will sink that ship just as fast.

That 70’s look…

Due to the strong connection between the silly, the goofy, the fun and the yacht party, going retro will set a course for adventure. Call it the Ron Burgundy effect or just throwing back to the 1977 duds they wore on Midnight Special , this look is uber sexy and may attract the opposite sex faster than any other yacht look. In fact, you don’t have to look too far to find polyester or denim clad jean meat at many yacht rock concerts. Additionally, the fake mustache works wonders whether you go 70’s vintage or any different yachty outfit.  More importantly, get bonus points on your yacht rock outfits if you can get the feathered hair going!  Polyester, print shirts, and for the ladies, buy that disco dress and some fabulous glasses and you’re ready to yacht!

The Yacht Club, Tennis Club, Golf Club…

Think Caddyshack, Marina del Rey, golfing, the harbor, and tennis. Moreso, put a tennis sweater over that polo or even better go up the ladder and put on that navy blue blazer with an ascot and some yellow glasses. Actually, that’s the calling card for us in Yachty by Nature! Pretend that you’re christening the Flying Wasp or dropping anchor with Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack and you’ll be flying indeed. Or even better, watch Caddyshack to get in the mood for your party and let inspiration take hold…and even a few classic movie lines. In fact, if you look around the golf club or yacht club scenes, your creativity is sparked immediately.  The outfits jump right off the screen and wreak of Yacht Club greatness.  Speaking of movies, we’ve even seen a die hard Yachty arrive in the Goldie Hawn outfit from the movie Overboard. Keep your yacht rock outfits classy San Diaaaaaago!

Go Hawaiian on your Yacht Rock outfits…

Get Nauti !

Lastly, this category is a catch all for everything nautical, yachty, and seaworthy.  Use your imagination or stick to the basics.  You can don the captain’s outfit with shoulder bars easily for the Love Boat vibe.  Or, you can just look like Charlie’s Angels coming off a yacht in 1978.  Literally any type of ocean, beach, seaside, or otherwise yachty type of clothing will do.  The scarf around the neck, the boat shorts and the Nantucket red pants and plaid shirt all qualify as supremely yachty fashion.  When in doubt, check yourself by asking, “would I wear this outfit in the summer in Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard?”  Most importantly, if the answer is yes, you are yacht rock camera ready.  In fact, let’s not forget the boat shoes, deck shoes, or Sperry Top Siders all together.

Yacht Rock Outfits Wildcard…

Never forget that there’s really no authority on this subject so you can always just go for it.  Sometimes, the more uniform, standard, and strict we get on the yacht, the more mundane we become.  Therefore, don’t be afraid to dive into the vanity t-shirt, go stripes and ascot, and generally mix it up.  There are no hard and fast rules behind the Yacht Rock outfit, just your creativity and passion for the music.  From experience, we’ll go captain’s outfit one day and crazy boat shirt the next.  Ultimately, we’ve seen it all from the stage and relish the moments when people go wild with it.  In fact, there’s probably even a yacht rock adjacent area for the Pirate Party as well.  Captain Crunch sightings aside, those parties can really bring together the nauti, yachty, knotty by nature and then some.  In the end, go for it and see what happens.  It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eyepatch.  Honestly, it’s all about the fun so get Kraken!!!

As always, let the vibe be your guide.  Thus, for your next yacht rock themed party, concert, or just a Yachty night on the town, get your ensemble going.  Whether you are new to the yacht or an old deck hand, that outfit will crank up the experience.  So, commit to making that statement with your yacht clothing or up your game and improve on the garb you already have.  As we well know, you can never have enough options to mix it up for a fun night with Yachty by Nature or some other occasion.

Happy to be your guide here.  Feel free to comment and add some great ideas on this post or on social media. #yachtrock #yachtrockoutfits #yachtybynature #yachtattire #yachtrockfashion

Thanks for giving props to Tiki Caliente! I would like to point out that the most proper Hawaiian shirt to wear to a Yacht Rock concert is one that would have been for sale between 1978 and 1983! Think to yourself, would Magnum PI or Pablo Cruise wear this? And if so, bring it on! Most Magnum PI kind of Hawaiian shirts go great with a white jacket and white shorts. Vintage late ‘70s and early ‘80’s Hawaiian shirts can be found Online in Etsy yacht rock shops, and on eBay. Not expensive, and so ”vintage smooth”. Look like a pro, and be “era appropriate”. Girls can find vintage 70’s nautical dresses on Etsy, too!

THIS is everything!!! I love it Carl!!!

Ahoy Jenny! THanks so much for the kind compliment 🙂 As you know, we’re super inspired and love switching up the outfits, attire, clothing, and costumes. Yacht Rock rules!

*2024* YACHT ROCK vintage party attire for real![16 looks + elements]

  • Pinterest 453

Wondering what to wear to a vintage Yacht rock party that screams the 70s and 80s vibes?

You have come to the right place as I’m gonna share all key elements in yacht rock party attire!

First thing first, what EXACTLY is yacht rock? Is that different from the regular yacht party attire?

Broadly speaking, yacht rock is a type of popular music genre in the mid-1979s and ’80s.

Yacht rock vintage party outfit

It blends soft rock, smooth jazz, and blues with southern yachty vibes that are as refreshing as it’s cozy and chill to people.

In the outfit sense, think of the nautical sailing looks with a dash of good 70s and 80s vintage vibes together with some playful and funky elements.

yacht rock party outfit

Ahead, I’ve gathered 16 real-life yacht rock-themed party outfit ideas from Instagram along with some pro tips.

Ready? Get inspired!

1. Fun yacht-themed party attire

If you are looking for a failproof look for your coming yacht rock party, embracing the nautical theme always works wonders.

 Fun yacht-themed party attire

That said, think white, red, and blue for the classic color palette and corporate it with the sailor stripe details or a small navy anchor print.

Trust me, patterns x patterns in one look can never be too over the top for a wild yacht rock party time!

It’s time to get out of your comfort zone!

Trust me, there’s definitely NOT ENOUGH content for vintage fashion these days

If you are the retro girlies, there’s one thing for sure – you have impeccable taste ❤️

If you find this recommendation useful – please kindly share and pin some of the shoes so more vintage girls like you can enjoy the info!

2. A fun nautical striped top

Some of you may worry the horizontal stripes will make them look bigger.

Well, not the case anymore when you pick the flattering design!

In case you wonder, I love this fitted off-shoulder striped top from Amazon.

As a girl with chubby cheeks, the off-shoulder neckline just elongates my neck and instantly sheds down the boldness of the print like magic.

The best part? The fabric type is 95% cotton and 5% spandex so it’s super stretchy and curve-flattering.

Together with the high-waist jean shorts and nice pumps, you’re bound to feel the fanciest and most feminine.

Check out this gorgeous piece here!

3. A statement captain hat for every look

For the lazy girls who want to look party-ready with minimal effort, I’d say throw on a captain hat to nail the look.

But really, it’s the core element of the yacht rock look of all time!

If you don’t want to look too costumey, pair up the yacht rock look with a cute summer dress and espadrilles wedge just looks equally instagrammable.

Again, to blend in with the crowd, think of bright fun hues instead of the classy neutral nude or dark shades.

5. When in doubt, wear a headscarf

This beautiful lady just demonstrates this hip, headscarf-wearing chic look in the best possible way.

Whether you are going to this yacht rock party or a tropical vacation, this styling just looks irresistibly carefree and tasteful.

To add in some retro flare, spice things up with the colorful round sunglasses that scream the perfect vibes.

6. 80s yacht tie-dye attire

To look the finest in the late 70s soft rock fashion, what about having fun with the tie-dye co-ord set that was all the rage during the 1980s? 

80s yacht tie-dye attire

Of course, tie-dye is always in style every few years so you can wear them on a ton of occasions!

8. A retro sailor top for a yacht rock party

For the ladies who prefer a lowkey yacht rock party look, this top below is another lovely piece.

The elegant boat-cut neckline and the darling ribbon details just highlight the beauty of the figure and make you look curvier visually.

The big plus?

There’s a rubber lining around the neckline to make sure the top is in place. I must say that’s a rare design for this price range!

According to the Amazon review, you want to order a size down. 

9. Hawaiian shirt for a yacht rock party

When in doubt, Hawaiian shirts will give you the right dose of yachty vibes.

That said, picking the right pattern is key otherwise you will gravitate towards the luau party.

Take the right balance of tropical vibes and introduce more marine elements to the look.

When in doubt, searching “reclaimed vintage-inspired beach shirt” or treasure hunting from a thrift store always helps!

The skirt from Lilly Pulitzer is always so darling – obsessed .

10. Funny T-shirt for the yacht rock fun

All the navy party costumes are cliché? Well, think again.

11. Couple yacht rock party outfits

When it comes to other essentials, khaki short shorts, and a colorful cami top just give the yacht rock attire a modern mix.

For petite girls, consider pairing up the body-hugging top with wide-leg pants and wedges.

It just contours the body proportion and helps you achieve an effortlessly chic look.

12. One-piece retro sailor swimsuit

It takes me a long time to find the perfect yacht rock swimsuit and I just can’t be any more proud when I find this gorgeous piece.

One-piece retro sailor swimsuit

A swimsuit with a halter neck is a big plus for me as it just comes in extra support and gives your chest the right boast.

With the horizontal stripe on the chest area, the voluminous effect is sure to impress.

As a pear-shaped girl, this swimsuit just flatters my figure in every single way.

13. Fun leaf print captain cap

If you are bored with the classic white and blue captain hat, this one with the leaf print just complements your nautical-themed party in the most distinctive way. 

Those gold embroidered badges on the front just scream “I’ve got a style and I KNOW it”.

Be the chicest captain in the house!

This is so random… BUT

hey ladies, why not quickly do an affirmation and feel instantly better?

This new year, I’m trying not only to share fashion tips but come up with ways to instill body positivity in all women who are reading my articles – aka YOU !

Instead of just reading it, say it loud or murmur the quotes (if you are in public) to maximize the effect.

Ready? Here we go.

I love my body. She is my forever home and sanctuary.

Sassy isn’t a shape, it’s an attitude.

Work out because I love my body – not because I hate it.

I can love myself and change my body at the same time. No guilt about that.

It is completely normal to have tummy rolls. I come to realize that social media isn’t showing the reality… at all.

My happiest moments in life had nothing to do with the way my body looked.

I don’t have to be pretty like her, I can be pretty like …ME.

I AM perfect imperfection.

What are your thoughts on that? I hope that makes you feel better (as you deserved).

Please help me pass the body positivity message in your community. #womenhelpwomen

Alright, now keep on reading!

70s Outfit #1: Casual Flares & Jeans

The heyday for blue jeans was the 70s. Everyone was wearing them almost all the time. At home, with friends, to the office- blue jeans were comfortable and no one wanted to take them off. What makes 70s blue jeans unique was their high and tight waist and wide leg that flared either a little or a lot. Bell bottoms are the most famous, but straight leg or flared leg pants were more common.

70s casual outfits

Jeans were paired with simple tops. Snug knit tops or polo shirts with large collars in stripes or solid bright colors. The loose peasant top or smock top with embroidery, crochet trim, inset lace and neck ties became trendy in the late 1970s. Long tunic tops in vivid patterns like paisley, chevron stripes, and ethnic designs started the trend in the early 70s. These are also known as hippie tops.

For your casual 70s outfit try 1. Wide leg flared jeans 2. Peasant top / Ringer T-shirt / Band Logo t-shirt 3. Earth tone belt 4. Platform shoes

Denim blue jeans were not the only casual outfit. Flares, loons and bell-bottom pants came in all sorts of bright colors and subtle patterns. They could be paired with loose tunic tops and peasant blouses or mixed with sportier knit shirts.

Soft ringer t-shirts with groovy slogans and retro destinations are popular 70s shirts now. So are rainbow-striped long and short sleeve shirts, crop tops and large collar polo shirts. Knitwear was in style in the 70s and blended perfectly with the colorful pants.

70s Outfit #3: Casual Summer Days

When days are warm and jeans are too hot, a pair of high waisted shorts are your next best option. High waisted denim shorts or the classic knit shorts with or without pockets were the fashion in the early to mid 70s.  Pair them with a striped tank top or ringer tee, polo shirt or crop top for a summertime retro style. Consider, too, the zip up romper for all in one ease.

1978 denim shorts and striped tops

For a summer outfit choose 1. High waisted shorts or a terry cloth skirt or skort 2. Optional belt – white, natural, or rainbow stripes 3. Striped or crochet sleeveless top, polo shirt or crop top (or make it a one-piece with a romper ) 4. Wedge sandals or Birkenstocks

One funky trend was to crochet shorts and tops into granny inspired outfits.

Rompers made a similar summer outfit. They cane be flashy for the disco, sporty or casual. They were often made of a poly knit that hugged the body. My mom’s was a purple paisley print with matching belt. The hot pant legs were very short!

Denim rompers or shortalls (shorts overalls) were also very trendy. Paired with western boots, you have another trendy 70s outfit.

70s Outfit #4: Wrap Dresses

Diane Von Furstenberg is credited for creating one of the most iconic dresses of the 70s, the wrap dress. Worn by stars and socialites, it never caught one with the mainstream public at the time, but has since been revived again and again. It is back in style this year, making it a great 70s retro-modern outfit to wear now.

Diane Von Furstenberg’s Wrap Dress

70s wrap dresses were made of a light jersey that clung to the body with a thin tie belt that barely held it in place. They were especially popular as disco dresses. Some mainstream styles were button-down shirt dresses with collars. They could be long maxi dresses, but most were knee-length. Simple, casual, feminine and very pretty.

The more common dress was a tie waist dress. Slipover dresses were tightened at the waist with a tie belt or had a drawstring waist that tied in the front.  Simple, easy, flowy and casual to wear it, could be dressy enough for a party or as everyday fashion.

For your retro wrap dress outfit try 1. A pretty jersey wrap dress or disco party dress in a color and pattern that you love 2.  T-strap, Mary Jane or Peep toe “vintage” style heels 3.  Large bangle bracelet or short thin gold pendant necklace 4. Gorgeous long feathered hair !

70s Outfit #5: Peasant / Prairie Dress

The other iconic 70s dress was the long maxi dress, which gave a nod back to the turn of the century Edwardian style with lace trim ruffled hems, puffy sleeves, and an empire waistband. They could be simple or fussy, with prints or pastels. The current boho trend favors maxi dresses in ethnic prints or clean white embroidered summer dresses .

The tiered dress gives a nod to the peasant or prairie fashion trend in the late 1970s. This gave way to mixing in western themes heading into the 80s.

70s long maxi dresses

For your maxi dress outfit keep it simple. 1. A long peasant dress in a floral print 2. Strappy sandal heels for summer, tall lace-up boots for winter   3. a floppy hat, suede vest and western boots for a boho hippie vibe.

70s outfit peasant dress

Under long dresses, 70s heels were hardly visible but with short dresses, they were meant to be seen. 70s heels could have a chunky square heel with a modest rise or a taller evening heel height. Most shoes were inspired by vintage styles of the 30s to 40s. Two-tone Mary Jane heels from the 20s, thin T strap heels from the 30s, and peep toe heels from the 40s were revived into new 70s designs. Shop vintage style heels shoes or all 70s shoes here .

Caftan Dress

Another long, loose and casual 70s dress was the caftan (kaftan) or mumu dress. Its nightgown shape made in bold prints and silky material made them a cross over between day and night. They were popular gowns to host a house party in. They were also worn around the house, just for fun. The oversized dramatic sleeves make them really fun to wear to a 70s party.

Mini Dresses

An alternative to long dresses were short early 70s dresses in the mini shift or tunic style. Many were still in the 60s mod style with contrasting white trim and collars. Big white necktie bows were also in style.

Other dresses were more of a hippie or boho look with tribal prints, smocking, embroidery or crochet. Jumper dresses layered over a blouse were essential in fall. Denim dresses in all lengths were also big in the mid-70s.

Jumpsuits are attached tops and bottoms usually in the same fabric. 70s jumpsuits were wide-legged or bell-shaped with solid pastel colors or big prints. Most were sleeveless with a halter top or other arm and back revealing design. Being flashy was the name of the game on the Disco floor.  Most 70s Halloween costumes are inspired by Disco fashion.

Besides jumpsuits, women wore shiny dresses to the disco. Silver sequins on short dresses looked like mirror disco balls while metallic gold lame mid-length dresses dazzled under the lights. Most disco dance dresses were white, red, pink or blue.

The 1920s fringe flapper dress experienced a revival at the disco too but it was the all-new wrap style dress in soft draping satin that had women dancing all night.

For formal evening events, a long gown was preferred over a shorter dress (cocktail parties had both). Floor-length column dresses draped like that of a Grecian goddess. Large capes and jackets came with many dresses that were sleeveless.

White, ivory and pastel colors dominated evening looks for most women, but movie stars and musicians had a different wardrobe.  Designer Halston and others put women in the spotlight in sequin-covered dresses, velvet kimono sleeve gowns, and slinky halter top dancing dresses.  Jumpsuits too were a popular evening look.

70s Outfit #9: 70s Yacht Rock

There is a new-ish trend for 70s themed parties taking place on boats, yachts, and cruises. Yacht Rock is a soft rock/lounge music genre. A Yacht Rock party turns to a few different clothing styles, depending if its a daytime or evening party.

For daywear, anything nautical or sailor themed (red or white stripes, blue and white dresses, all white, etc.) is fair game. White pants and a striped shirt is clean. High waisted sailor shorts and a red crop top adds a touch of fun. A white jumpsuit and a red hair scarf keep the 70s flair while red or blue striped sundresses keep it modest. A navy blue blazer, white bow blouse, and jeans is good for something more dressed up.  Even a tropical-themed dress or Hawaiian shirt will be adequately yachty.

Add a captain hat or sun visor and big oversized sunglasses . For shoes, keep it simple in flat canvas sneakers or slip on shoes (like Keds Champion ). Wedge espadrille sandals also say “summer party time!” Find more nautical themed dresses, tops and bottoms here .

For evenings, its glam time. Think disco dresses, sequin jumpsuits or rompers , and evening formals with booties (more stable for a moving boat) or high heels . Add a faux fur jacket or long coat , big dangling earrings , and a clutch handbag to complete the look.

70s Outfit #10: Workout Clothes

In the mid-1970s, exercise became a trend. Women and men were taking up tennis, running, aerobic dance, and basketball in record numbers. Specialty athletic clothes such as tracksuits, running shorts and sneakers were made nearly identical for women and men. Most sported 3 stripes or chevron on the legs, arms, and chest.

Running shorts had a side slit and were trimmed in contacting fabric. For women, taking dance classes in tights and leotards or working out on a home gym in terry cloth exercise clothes was both a fun and fashionable activity.

These iconic retro workout clothes have made a comeback in leisure fashion today but they also make awesome outfits for a 70s party. Pair a tracksuit or running shorts with a 3-stripe  t-shirt, tall over the calf stripe socks , and retro sneakers for this sporty outfit idea. Dancers can pick a leotard and matching tights with a wrap-around skirt.

70s swimsuits and beach coverup

Inside: Amazing yacht party outfit ideas that you need to sea

So…you’ve been invited to a yacht party…welcome aboard! As someone who has had the pleasure of sailing the seas and attending my fair share of glamorous yacht gatherings, I can’t help but get excited about sharing some fabulous outfit ideas with you all.

Yacht parties are undoubtedly the epitome of sophistication and style, and choosing the perfect ensemble is a delightful part of the experience. Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a first-time deck adventurer, I’ve got some fantastic insights on how to dress to impress while maintaining comfort and charm.

3 different yacht party ideas

So, let’s set sail on a fashion journey together and discover the chicest and most awe-inspiring yacht party outfits that will make waves and leave a lasting impression on everyone aboard! I am going to be adding these to my 20th birthday outfit ideas , because they are just perfect.

Table of Contents

Epic Yacht Party Outfit Ideas + Tips

Before I show you some examples of amazing yacht party outfits, I wanted to go over some of my top tips. This way, these can be fresh in your mind as you go through looking for inspiration!

1. Nautical Chic

Embrace the maritime theme by opting for nautical-inspired attire. A classic white and navy striped shirt paired with well-fitted khaki or white shorts or trousers can create a stylish and relaxed look.

If you are thinking about going a little more dressy, then you can always wear an evening gown that fits under this theme as well! I think the ideas below will help you find what style you are looking for.

2. Light and Breezy

Take it from me…since you’ll be out on the water, comfort is key. You need to choose lightweight and breathable fabrics like linen, cotton, or chambray to stay cool and composed even in the summer sun. I genuinly cannot push this point enough. You absolutely want to be stylish…but you also need to be practical.

Lucky for you, practicality and style actually do have many lines that intersect.

3. Dress to Impress

If the yacht party calls for a more formal dress code, consider a classy sundress for ladies or a tailored blazer over a crisp button-down shirt for gentlemen. It strikes the perfect balance between elegance and leisure. I love any excuse to dress up, so whenever I get invited to a fancier party, I really take advantage of it.

4. Hats and Sunglasses

This one is a subsection attached to tip number two. You are going to be on a boat, so you are going to want to include a cute hat and some sunnies. You can protect yourself from the sun while adding a touch of glamor with a wide-brimmed hat and a stylish pair of sunglasses that match your outfit.

Not only do they serve as practical accessories, but they also exude an air of sophistication. If you are going with your parents, you can look at these mom daughter matching outfits!

5. Deck Shoes or Sandals

Leave the stilettos and heavy boots at home! Opt for comfortable deck shoes or trendy sandals, as they are both practical and in line with the yacht ambiance. I once wore heels on a yacht and went home 4 hours later with the worst blisters I have ever had in my life.

Plus, with all of the swaying, I found myself exhausted from just standing in my heels. This is definitely not the vibe you want to bring to a party.

6. Accessorize minimally. 3 different outfits

6. Accessorize Minimally

Keep your accessories simple and minimalistic. A statement piece like a beautiful necklace or a stylish bracelet can add that extra touch to your outfit without being too overpowering.

If you have too many accessories, you may find yourself on the more high-maintenance side. If you are up for that, then you go for it.

7. Neutral and Pastel Colors

Embrace the coastal vibe with a palette of soft and breezy colors. Think whites, pastel blues, seafoam greens, and sandy beiges for a fresh and sophisticated look. If you couldn’t tell already…the whole goal you are going for is sophistication. I mean, this is true for most yacht parties, but it does depend on the person throwing it.

Yacht Party Outfit Ideas –  8. Versatility is Key

Yacht parties often involve different settings, from lounging on the deck to dancing in the evening. Choose outfits that can transition seamlessly from day to night with a few adjustments. There are quite a few outfits like this below, so make sure you keep an eye out for them.

9. Layer Up

Evenings on the water can get a bit chilly, so be prepared by bringing along a lightweight cardigan or a stylish jacket that complements your outfit. This might feel a little counterintuitive, but at the end of the day, I just want you to be comfortable. I have spent one too many nights uncomfortable on a boat. Life is too short!

Yacht Party Outfit Ideas  10. Confidence

Above all, wear your outfit with confidence and a smile! Your attitude is the ultimate accessory, and it’ll radiate positivity and charm throughout the entire yacht party. I think if you listen to all of my tips and tricks from above, you are going to show up to this party the most comfy and confident version of yourself.

I recommend saying some simple affirmations to yourself before you leave your house. You are the life of the party. Everyone loves you. And, of course, you’re outfit rocks!

The Sailor's Style Guide: How to Dress at a Yacht Club

If you've been invited to a casual yacht club rendezvous, you'll need the right threads to fit in.  in this guide, we'll walk you through the yacht club attire you'll need to fit in. hint: you can find the perfect outfit head to toe with castaway.

You've been invited to a meal or event at a local yacht club, but you've never been to one before. Suddenly, the panic sets in. What should you wear? Fortunately, there are lots of options and visiting a yacht club does not mean you have to spend a lot of money just to fit in. This post will give you some pointers on yacht club attire so that you feel neither under nor overdressed, and can really enjoy yourself and have a great time at the club.

Before you even think about what to wear, check to see if the yacht club you're going to has a dress code posted online. Most of them do, and the rules can vary from club to club. The Nantucket Yacht Club , for example, requires semi-formal attire for its dinners and cocktail attire including ties for men during its dinner dances and balls. The Hyannis Yacht Club goes into a little more detail. It accepts stylish casual wear including clean, neat jeans and shorts for lunch. For dinner, guests are expected to step it up by leaving the denim at home and wearing sports coats. Different areas of a club may also have different dress rules. Bars and outdoor decks tend to more lax and allow casual clothing.

Sometimes, the easiest way of narrowing down what to wear is to eliminate what you should not wear. This is just a partial list of how not to show up at any kind of yacht club unless you want to be denied admittance or receive a lot of disapproving glares. All rules listed apply to the inside of the club, and can vary for beach and dock rulings.

Flip Flops or Going Barefoot: This rule applies INSIDE the club, or for any meal time. Most people love the beach, but going barefoot is not only unacceptable, but unhygienic.

You'll want to wear appropriate footwear such as sturdy sandals or closed toe shoes. While a lot of children and adults love their flip-flops, they may be a little too casual for a yacht club atmosphere. The most popular choice here is a boat shoe style but a bridle bit driver is always appropriate - check the latest . The lightly worn leather and pencil-curled laces fit the bill in the cool department.

Torn, Stained, or Worn Clothing: Any attire that is showing signs of wear such as rips, stains that never came out, holes, missing buttons, etc. should be left at home.

Baseball Caps and Other Hats: Most yacht clubs prefer that men remove their caps when inside the venue. Save them for the sailing excursions.

Extra points on the water if you rock the Club’s Burgee on the hat!

Swimwear: Just a no-no. Save it for the boat and the beach. A cover-up can be acceptable for the patio.

Going Shirtless: Nope!

Undershirts as Shirts: See above. You may also want to be careful about choosing a t-shirt, particularly one with graphics, when visiting a yacht club. Most prefer that you wear a collared shirt, even if it's a casual one such as a polo shirt.

Tank tops for men and any tank tops for women that are skimpy and don't hide undergarments should be saved for another occasion.

Women have a lot of options when it comes to visiting a yacht club. Linen and cotton make the perfect summer blouses. A light but structured Sleeveless Top paired with a  sweater is perfect for warding off cool sea breezes when you're out on the deck. A polo or collared shirt works well for the yacht club scene as well. You can also consider a dressy blouse that has a little bit of flounce to it. If shorts are allowed for the time and area of the club you're visiting, consider sporting  Sailing  shorts  with a cute anchor embroidery. They're cool, classy, and show off just the right amount of leg. Casual skirts and dresses are perfectly fine as well as long as they're not too short and revealing. If you're attending a party at a yacht club you may need to wear a nice cocktail dress, or a classic Tunic Dress for a day event. Special events such as balls and dinner dances usually specify what is appropriate attire on the invitation.

Don't forget to have fun with accessories! A straw handbag can complete a nautical themed look.

For most casual yacht club occasions, men can't go wrong with a collared shirt and long pants or Cisco Shorts . Pastel and preppy shades such as summer green, hurricane red, and islander blue rule here.

When casual attire is allowed, collared sport or polo shirts are always in fashion. Seersucker and linen shirts are available in several colors and patterns for summer club get-togethers. If jeans are not allowed, seersucker or cotton canvas pants are still casual and comfortable yet dressy enough for all areas of a yacht club. If you really want to show your love of nautical dressing, consider wearing a fun Embroidered Pant !

Or you can opt for solid pants but add some nautical flair with an embroidered belt . Classic summer staples like Seersucker and Madras Patches will make you the talk of the Club, in a good way!

For those chilly sea breezes and evenings, a quarter zip pullover wards off the cool air while keeping you stylish and casual.

It's a good idea to keep a sportcoat and a few ties in your closet just in case the yacht club you're visiting requires it. Opt for a fun all over embroidered jacket, or a Madras Patchwork style to really up your game.

Kids' clothing should conform to the same yacht club rules as established for grown-up guests. If you really want your son to look cute, consider dressing him in the same matching outfit as dad.

Whether you're looking to make a splash with yacht club attire or just want to look good on the boat or while meeting with friends, we have the seaside looks that you'll look and feel wonderful in for men, women, and children.

What To Wear On A Yacht featured image by the supermelon

Attending a yacht party calls for a blend of sophisticated style and relaxed elegance, capturing the essence of the nautical setting while ensuring your comfort and confidence.

Whether envisioning a glamorous sunset cocktail party, a leisurely sunbathing session, or a serene exploration of hidden coves, curating the perfect yacht ensemble becomes an art.

This guide navigates the realm of yacht fashion, offering insights and inspiration to ensure you’re impeccably dressed for every moment of your nautical experience.

From chic essentials that capture the essence of oceanic elegance to tips on selecting attire that harmonizes with both sea and sky, the following are the style essentials to elevate your yacht experience to unparalleled heights.

yacht rock outfits female

Yacht settings generally adhere to a semi-formal dress code, implying that items like shorts, flip-flops, or t-shirts are best avoided. Instead, consider selecting slacks or khakis for men; sundresses, jumpsuits, or skirts are excellent choices for women.

When in doubt about your attire, it’s preferable to lean towards a more polished appearance rather than a casual one.


When dressing for a yacht outing, opt for a nautical-inspired ensemble. Consider wearing a crisp white shirt paired with tailored shorts, boat shoes or espadrilles, and a sun hat.

This classic look combines comfort and style, suitable for both genders, while capturing the essence of a yacht setting.

Before finalizing your outfit for the boat party, there are a couple of factors to consider, with the first being the prevailing weather conditions. If the temperature is soaring, opting for lightweight and breathable fabrics is paramount.

Donning stylish swimsuits is integral to yacht party attire, accompanied by chic cover-ups and delicate, breezy dresses or shorts. By skillfully coordinating these elements, you can effortlessly master the art of yacht-worthy fashion.

yacht rock outfits female

However, in the event of cooler temperatures, ensuring you’re well-insulated is imperative. Being caught unprepared amidst the vast ocean during fall or winter could prove quite uncomfortable.

Moreover, regardless of the schedule, having a sweatshirt or a light denim jacket at the ready is prudent, particularly when the night descends.

The maritime environment can turn quite chilly after sunset, especially during the colder months.

Furthermore, your outfit choice should be tailored to the specific activities planned aboard the yacht. If your plan revolves around leisurely moments on the boat’s deck, a combination of shorts and a T-shirt layered over a stylish bikini is likely suitable.

However, should water sports be part of the agenda, selecting attire that remains relatively dry and light prevents any undue discomfort caused by excess moisture.

Lastly, take into consideration the overarching ambiance of the yacht setting. For a laid-back gathering, opting for a more relaxed outfit is acceptable.

However, if the occasion leans towards a more refined tone, it’s essential to align your attire accordingly.

Midi or maxi dresses and stylish rompers and jumpsuits are excellent choices that seamlessly blend sophistication with style.

Essential attire for women at a yachting event includes cover-ups, tunics, kaftans, and dresses with a fluid, breezy quality. These pieces harmonize seamlessly with swimwear, offering both a stylish layer and a means of keeping cool and comfortable.

Opting for a maxi or lace cover-up exudes an elevated charm, while selecting a sundress cover-up or a romper lends a more relaxed aura. For everyday yacht wear, consider the practicality of linen dresses and side tie skirts, both of which effortlessly complement the maritime experience.

yacht rock outfits female

No looks exudes the maritime quite like a cover-up, and these lightweight garments serve as a stylish and functional layering option when transitioning between water-based activities and lounging on the beach or on a yacht. Cover-ups are typically made from materials like chiffon, cotton, linen, or lightweight knits, which make them breathable and comfortable in warm weather. Moreover, cover-ups offer protection from the sun’s rays while maintaining an air of sophistication. The following are common cover-ups for women:

yacht rock outfits female

With their loose and flowing silhouettes, tunics further amplify a great seaside look. They often feature intricate designs, embroidery, or patterns and can be made from lightweight materials like cotton, linen, or sheer fabrics.

Tunics provide coverage for the upper body while allowing air to circulate, keeping you cool. Their effortless charm pairs well with the nautical backdrop, allowing women to exude both comfort and elegance.

yacht rock outfits female

Kaftans are loose-fitting, maxi-length dresses with wide sleeves, often made from flowing fabrics like chiffon, silk, or lightweight cotton. Kaftans can be quite elegant and are popular for their bohemian vibe. They offer women full coverage and the ultimate in  comfort during warm weather.

Slay it with a sarong!

Typically made from lightweight, quick-drying materials like rayon or silk, sarongs are versatile pieces of fabric that can be wrapped around the waist like a skirt, tied as a halter dress, or used as a shawl. Sarongs are easy to pack and provide coverage while allowing flexibility in styling.

yacht rock outfits female

Inspired by traditional Japanese clothing, kimonos are open-front, flowing garments that often feature vibrant prints and patterns and are made from lightweight materials.

Kimonos are distinctive, add a touch of elegance, and can be worn over swimsuits or paired with shorts and tops.

Oversized Shirts

yacht rock outfits female

For a more casual approach, an oversized button-up shirt can be worn as a cover-up. It’s a versatile option that can be worn open or buttoned up, offering coverage and protection from the sun.

Play up the look with vibrant colors or intricate patterns for an engaging yacht style.

Is a cocktail dress a suitable choice for women?

For occasions leaning towards the more refined end of the spectrum, a sophisticated yacht party might very well warrant the selection of a cocktail dress, or in rarer instances, an elegant gown. The cocktail dress code, being slightly less formal than full evening wear, aligns well with such gatherings’ relaxed yet stylish atmosphere.

Ideally, the event’s formality level will be communicated beforehand, but exceptions do exist.

When the ambiance is less formal than a boat wedding, alternative options like wide-legged pants, rompers, or wrap skirts can be considered. Attire resembling what you would choose for a beach or poolside gathering would also be fitting.

An essential consideration when attending any yacht event is the choice of footwear. It’s advisable to steer clear of heels – opting for flat shoes is a safer and wiser choice to ensure a comfortable and accident-free experience.

Yacht Shoe Ideas for Women


Donning both hats and sunglasses is entirely fitting aboard a yacht, and they provide an added shield against the sun’s rays, which is undoubtedly beneficial.

Not only will you seamlessly blend in, but you’ll also be safeguarding your eyes and skin from potentially harmful UV exposure. Including sunscreen in your essentials is equally crucial to ensure comprehensive protection.

yacht rock outfits female

Amongst men, the favored ensemble for yacht journeys in motion often comprises a breezy, lightweight linen shirt, offering both comfort and composure throughout the excursion. Naturally, a pair of swim shorts is indispensable, ensuring you’re perpetually prepared for impromptu dips.

Completing the ensemble, opt for casual boat shoes that complement your yacht attire seamlessly.

Stylish sunglasses are essential to the maritime look as a vital accessory, effectively shielding your eyes from the sun’s glare.

While specific occasions may necessitate more refined apparel, such as dinner parties, these suggestions primarily focus on curating a laidback, relaxed aesthetic.

Linen button-downs stand as the preferred choice for men while onboard due to their lightweight and breathable nature.

They have long been associated with boating, ensuring a harmonious fit within a yacht environment. Light cotton options also offer similar advantages, with items like polo shirts seamlessly blending into a crowd.

Even a well-chosen t-shirt can find its place, though appropriateness should be tailored to the context. However, a slightly elevated appearance may be preferable for slightly more formal outings or celebratory gatherings.

A great pair of tailored pants are a definite option for a day or night out on a yacht. Linen pants , chinos, or loose slacks are all versatile enough for any event.

Yet, a reliable pair of shorts proves invaluable if the yacht’s purpose involves active endeavors like fishing or sailing.

These offer comfort and freedom and ensure readiness for any unforeseen water-related situations.

In the realm of yacht wear, swim shorts emerge as a particularly pertinent item, given the likelihood of aquatic escapades. Whether you find yourself plunging into the Mediterranean or relaxing a jacuzzi, shorts are a pragmatic must-have.

Be it for leisure or the potential of an emergency scenario requiring a swift swim, swim shorts serve both purposes seamlessly.

Ensuring both security and comfort, boat shoes are an indispensable inclusion for any yacht experience as they prevent unwanted slipping on the deck. Sometimes referred to as deck shoes, they closely resemble loafers but include laces for added practicality.

For more relaxed outings, some opt for flip flops, which can be suitable for casual days spent with friends.


Wearing sunglasses aboard a yacht transcends mere fashion, assuming the role of a vital shield against the sun’s unyielding glare and potentially harmful UV rays. As you sail on a maritime journey, these shades emerge as a reliable companion, diligently safeguarding your eyes from discomfort and potential long-term harm.

Whether you’re leisurely absorbing the sun’s warmth or actively engaging in water-based thrills, sunglasses exude an undeniable air of refined elegance, effortlessly elevating your yacht ensemble.

What Is Suitable to Wear to a Yacht Party?

Crafting the perfect attire for a yacht party involves a skillful equilibrium among comfort, style, and functionality, seamlessly embracing the maritime setting.

Embracing an effortlessly chic and laid-back approach, the careful curation of your outfit can significantly enrich your voyage across the waves.

Deciding on fabrics that prioritize breathability and lightness, such as linen or cotton, ensures your ease amidst the sea breeze. In the backdrop of daytime gatherings, a palette of soft and pastel hues, including serene blues and delicate pastels, imparts an invigorating and lively ambiance.

Opting for a versatile piece like a fashionable sundress, coupled with boat shoes that perfectly balance comfort and trendiness, encapsulates the essence of casual sophistication.

As twilight descends and the festivities extend into the evening, embracing darker shades introduces an element of refinement, harmonizing with the fading sunlight.

The thoughtful inclusion of tasteful accessories, like a wide-brimmed hat for enhanced sun protection and stylish sunglasses that shield your eyes and accentuate your maritime charisma, further elevate your ensemble.

Ultimately, the crux lies in aligning your attire with the occasion’s level of formality, while never compromising on comfort, and embodying an aesthetic that mirrors the serene allure of open waters.

Final Considerations

Embracing a fusion of refinement and casual ease emerges as a simple and effective strategy when considering yacht attire. While certain occasions might warrant a subtle refinement, the extent of this shift hinges upon the unique event and the preferences of the hosts.

Give precedence to fabrics like linen and other lightweight options to optimize comfort. An indispensable element to include is a pair of boat shoes, guaranteeing stability on the deck. Additionally, ensure you don’t neglect key essentials such as swimsuits and vital sun protection gear, which notably includes sunglasses.

Tips on Dressing for a Boat Party:

  • The most important tip is to dress according to the occasion on the boat. Is it a casual cruise, fancy cruise, bachelorette, wedding, or simply a fun gathering with friends? The possibilities are endless; thus, the appropriate course of action would be to dress fancy if the occasion calls for it; and casual if the affair is chill and laidback.
  • Wear shades of whites, ivory, and creams, topped with a pop of color here and there!
  • Do not forget your sunhat and glasses back home!
  • Also, sunscreen! Probably the essential item to carry unless you wish to be toasted.
  • Kimonos, oversized tee shirts would be helpful if you plan on wearing a swimsuit to the event.
  • Please do not forget a cardigan or sweater! You never know when it might start getting chilly.
  • Take your outfit to the next level by blending textures, including solid pieces and some printed/ striped ones.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. how should i dress for a boat cruise party.

A. At the beginning of this article, I have mentioned some tips on styling for a boat party which you might find helpful. For a cruise specifically, it depends upon the type of cruise you will be attending. For a fancier, luxury cruise, check out looks number 2 and 5. On the other hand, outfits 21 and 17 will be perfect for a casual day cruise with the gang! Always remember to dress according to the plan. If your cruise comes with a swim stop, then choose to wear your swimsuit under your outfit of choice!

Q. What do you wear on a boat at night?

A. A boat night party requires you to look at your outfit options from a different approach. I can not emphasize this enough, but an essential clothing item to carry, especially during winters, is a jacket or a windbreaker to keep you warm. Next, I would suggest wearing colors that pop and make you stand out. For a casual look, jeans or shorts with a crop top layered with a cozy sweater is ideal. In comparison, a flowy dress or a chic jumpsuit would be perfect for a fancier event.

How to decide what to wear on a yacht

What activities will you be doing.

To determine what you should wear on a yacht, first think about the activities you will be doing. Will you be swimming? Snorkeling? Jet skiing? or simply relaxing on the deck? Each activity requires different clothing and accessories for comfort.

For example, you’ll want to bring a swimsuit if you are swimming or jet skiing. However, if it’s a more formal event, such as dinner and dancing, you’ll want to wear more dressier attire.

What is the weather like?

The weather is also an important factor in what to wear on a yacht. If it’s hot and sunny, shorts and t-shirt might be best. If it’s cold or raining, you may want to bring extra layers like a jacket or windbreaker that you can take off if it gets too hot.

What does the dress code say?

It’s also important to check for any dress codes that may be in place. If you’re attending a fancy event on the yacht, your attire should reflect it – don’t forget to check for any requirements, such as wearing formal attire or a specific color dress.

FAQ: What to wear on a yacht

Can you wear jeans on a yacht.

While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, it’s important to take into consideration the type of yacht you’ll be visiting and the occasion.

For casual trips aboard smaller vessels and day cruises, wearing jeans can be acceptable, depending on the context. For example, if the outing includes activities such as swimming or kayaking, a lightweight pair of jeans might be more suitable than something more formal.

What do you wear on a yacht day trip?

When it comes to dressing for a yacht day trip, comfort is key. Opt for comfortable yet stylish pieces that won’t limit your mobility. While Stiletto heels are not ideal for a day on the boat, sandals or wedges with good grip are perfect choices.

Additionally, dresses, skirts, rompers, and jumpsuits are great options to wear on a yacht day trip. You can opt for lightweight fabrics like cotton and linen or even a few pieces made of flowy fabric that won’t cling to your skin. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a pair of shorts with a flowy blouse for a relaxed but chic look.

Accessories are also important when it comes to dressing for a yacht day trip. A fun hat, sunglasses, and statement jewelry can all help make your outfit complete.

What do you wear on a yacht at night?

At night, you should aim to dress a bit more formally. Women can wear a dress or skirt with a nice blouse and some jewelry and add a blazer or cardigan if it’s chilly.

A nice pair of trousers with a top or blouse is also always appropriate. Footwear should be smart and comfortable, such as low-heeled pumps or sandals.

If you’re planning to go swimming later on, it’s best to bring a change of clothes, such as a swimming costume and cover-up. Accessorize with a clutch bag, statement necklace, or scarf for a stylish touch. Whatever you wear, be sure to feel comfortable and confident on the yacht.

What to wear on a yacht in winter?

If you’re a woman planning to spend time on a yacht in the winter, it’s important to dress appropriately for the weather. Depending on the climate where you’ll be sailing, you may need to wear several layers in order to stay warm and comfortable.

yacht rock outfits female

Taking the plunge and setting sail on a yacht can be an exciting venture. Whether it’s your first time or you’re planned out many oceanic voyages, knowing what to wear is essential to feel comfortable throughout your experience.

Ensuring that your ensemble is stylish, comfortable, and weather-appropriate will have you looking incredible no matter the occasion. With a look that’s both sophisticated and fun, a well-considered outfit will cement your place as the trendiest guest at sea.

So make sure you step out of your comfort zone this summer and take advantage of these ideas to find the perfect look for your nautical adventure! What’s your favorite outfit for a day on a yacht? Let me know in the comments below!
