Casual boat and yachting parties are
common social events that define
Florida lifestyle. If you’re living in
the state where the sun never goes
down, you’d better be ready to dress
your best when you’re invited to a
yacht party! A sunny day on the
water with swimming planned calls
for more casual attire. Your bathing
suit and a gorgeous cover-up should
be your most important ensemble.
Wear nice shorts or a light, flowy
sundress if you’re not getting wet.
For afternoon and evening trips, I

comfortable cardigan handy. One of
the most popular fashion trends is

ethnic, eco and military elements.
Like the image it projects, the Trekker
look revels in a sense of adventure

Make sure to take a Ziploc aboard
whenever you plan to head out into the
high seas. Use it to store your accessories
before and after you take a dip.
Besides getting sunburned, the next worse
thing you could do this summer is get
sunscreen grease on your clothes. Try Alba

Although you may opt to go barefoot on
your next trip at sea, it might not do too
