In an interview I had with Milda Chellingsworth, from Styling for you, a renowned stylist from London, she works with top celebrities and HNWI in preparing the wardrobe and packing holiday outfits for yacht owners.
I asked her to share with us the latest fashion trends on board yachts for this summer.
Milda says ‘Resort wear has become one of the most successful collections for retailers and we are definitely are spoilt for choice!’
We always recommend to have few great cover ups, puff sleeve ones are particularly on trend this year, we love brands like Adriana Degreas and Zimmerman as you can use them off board too as your little summer dresses.
Wide leg trousers are classic look for day or evening, we love Casa Raki ones this year. Another thing to pay attention to are fabrics, choose natural and light weight linen or cotton and summer weight cashmere for your evenings.
Shorts over skirts can be a better option, as more practical, yet extremely stylish. Also pay attention to your dress length, midi is much easier to wear, as you choose flats or heels with out a worry of damaging your hems!
We also love the idea of a swimsuit, that can be worn as tops, putting together with a pair of shorts or trousers, can look very stylish and practical, giving you an option for a spontaneous swim! We like Mary Mare brand at the moment.
In some ways men are easier, but that does not mean, that they don’t have to care! We always make sure that we have plenty of linen shirts and light weight blazers for our clients, as these can take them from day to night.
Also, smart and casual shorts are very important, as some still don’t know the difference! We want our clients to relax on their holidays, but at the same time to look appropriate if holding a business meeting on their yacht.
In Monaco the latest trend is the Beach blazer by 209mare.
We also encourage yacht owners to get some sandals, especially for small city breaks, you don’t want to wear your trainers in the heat!
Although the Hermes sandales are still one my favorite ones!
