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!!!

Organizing a fashion show is an exciting endeavor, and taking it a step further by hosting it on a luxurious yacht adds a touch of glamour and exclusivity. A yacht-based fashion show offers a unique experience for designers, models, and guests alike. The picturesque backdrop of the open sea and the elegance of a yacht create an unforgettable atmosphere. This article will provide the key steps to successfully organize a yacht-based fashion show, from planning and logistics to design and execution. So, let's set sail and discover how to create an extraordinary fashion event on the high seas.

Before setting sail, developing a clear concept for your yacht-based fashion show is essential. Start by determining the theme and style that best aligns with your brand or the designers you're showcasing. Next, consider the type of yacht that would complement the aesthetic, whether a sleek modern or classic vintage yacht. Additionally, think about the target audience and the overall experience you want to create.

Once you have a firm concept in mind, create a detailed plan. Define the timeline, budget, and scope of the event. Next, identify key stakeholders, including designers, models, hair and makeup artists, and sponsors. Consider collaborating with local fashion schools or agencies to find talented models interested in participating. Finally, ensure you have the permits and permissions to host the event in your chosen location.

Choosing the right yacht is crucial for a successful yacht-based fashion show. Consider factors such as size, layout, and amenities. The yacht should have enough deck space to accommodate a runway, seating area, and backstage area for the models. Opt for a yacht with open areas that provide unobstructed views for the audience and photographers.

Collaborate with  yacht charter companies that specialize in hosting events. They can advise on the best yacht options and assist with logistics, permits, and catering services. In addition, please pay attention to the technical aspects of the yacht, such as lighting and sound systems, to ensure they meet the requirements of a fashion show.

Transforming the yacht's deck into an enchanting runway is key to organizing a yacht-based fashion show. Work closely with a set designer to create a captivating runway design that complements the yacht's aesthetics and your chosen theme. Consider using materials that enhance the nautical ambiance, such as ropes, nets, and marine-inspired decorations.

Lighting is crucial in showcasing the designs and creating a mesmerizing ambiance. Collaborate with a lighting designer to craft a lighting scheme that accentuates the models and their outfits. Ensure the lighting is sufficient for the runway and the audience to enjoy the show.

To ensure an exceptional viewing experience for the guests:

  • Strategically arrange seating areas on the yacht.
  • Consider both the indoor and outdoor spaces, ensuring guests have comfortable seating and an unobstructed view of the runway.
  • Utilize the yacht's existing seating areas and augment them with additional seating options.

Consider incorporating lounge areas where guests can relax and socialize during breaks or after the show. Arrange these areas to encourage mingling and networking among attendees, creating a vibrant atmosphere.

Smooth logistics and efficient backstage management are essential for a seamless yacht-based fashion show. Coordinate with designers to ensure their collections are delivered and organized in advance. Establish a backstage area where models can change and prepare for their walks. Ensure the area has mirrors, clothing racks, and sufficient lighting. Hire professional hair and makeup artists who can work efficiently in a limited space.

To manage the logistics effectively:

  • Create a detailed schedule for the fashion show.
  • Allocate specific time slots for each designer and model, including rehearsal times.
  • Communicate the schedule to all involved parties to ensure everyone knows their roles and responsibilities.

It's also pivotal to consider the safety of the models and guests. Ensure that the yacht has proper security measures in place. Hire additional security personnel to maintain order and control access to restricted areas if necessary.

Promoting and marketing the yacht-based fashion show strategically is important to ensure a successful turnout. Use various marketing channels such as social media, email newsletters, and targeted advertisements. In addition, create visually appealing content showcasing the event's elegance and uniqueness. Collaborate with influencers, fashion bloggers, and local media outlets to generate buzz and increase exposure. Offer exclusive invitations to key industry professionals, fashion enthusiasts, and potential sponsors to attract a diverse and influential audience.

Consider organizing pre-event activities or press conferences to generate anticipation and media coverage. Engage with the local community and build partnerships with relevant businesses to expand your reach and create a memorable experience for all attendees.

A yacht-based fashion show is an extraordinary event that must be captured and documented. Hire professional photographers and videographers to preserve the essence of the show. They should be experienced in capturing fashion events, ensuring they can highlight the beauty of the yacht, the fashion designs, and the overall ambiance. Create a dedicated media area where photographers and videographers can view the runway and models. This area should offer a vantage point that allows them to capture the show's best moments.

After the event, curate the photographs and videos to create engaging content for your brand's website, social media platforms, and promotional materials. Share the most memorable moments of the fashion show with attendees, and encourage them to share their experiences on social media, thus extending the event's reach.

Organizing a yacht-based fashion show requires meticulous planning, attention to detail, and creative vision. From conceptualizing the event to selecting the perfect yacht and creating a captivating runway, every element contributes to an unforgettable experience. By focusing on logistics, backstage management, promotion, and documentation, you can ensure the smooth execution of the event. 

Moreover, a yacht-based fashion show provides an unparalleled opportunity for designers to present their creations in a sophisticated and exclusive environment. So, set sail with creativity, passion, and a keen eye for detail, and create a fashion event that will leave a lasting impression.

These early artisans set the foundation for the importance of hair and makeup in the world of fashion. Over the centuries, the role of hair and makeup artists has evolved, becoming integral to the fashion show experience. Today, their expertise and artistry continue to play a vital role in bringing fashion collections to life on the runway.

It provides a unique platform for designers, models, photographers, and other industry experts to connect and collaborate. Here are some ways in which hosting a yacht fashion show can enhance networking opportunities:

  • 2. Intimate setting: Yachts offer a more intimate and personalized setting compared to traditional fashion show venues. This allows for more meaningful interactions and conversations with industry professionals, fostering relationships that can lead to future collaborations. Additionally, the intimate setting provides networking opportunities with industry professionals.
  • 3. Informal interactions: Yacht fashion shows often provide opportunities for informal interactions such as pre and post-show cocktail parties, networking lounges, and onboard activities.

Remember, networking is a valuable tool for growth and success in the fashion industry.

3. Potential Technical and Safety Challenges

  • Potential Technical and Safety Challenges of Hosting a Sea-Bound Runway:
  • Weather conditions: Hosting a yacht fashion show presents potential technical and safety challenges. The unpredictability of the weather can pose a risk. Strong winds, rain, or rough seas can affect the stability of the yacht, creating unsafe conditions for the runway and guests. It’s crucial to closely monitor the weather forecast and have backup plans in place.
  • Seating capacity: Another potential technical and safety challenge of hosting a sea-bound runway is the limited space on yachts. Accommodating a large number of guests can be challenging. Ensuring there is enough seating for all attendees while maintaining safety standards requires careful planning and coordination.
  • Adequate lighting and visibility: Proper lighting is essential during a sea-bound runway. It ensures the fashion designs are showcased, and the audience can see the models clearly. However, the movement of the yacht and the open-air environment can make it challenging to maintain consistent lighting conditions. Extra precautions must be taken to ensure proper visibility for the runway.
  • Stability and balance: Yachts, primarily designed for smooth sailing on open waters, may not be ideal for hosting fashion shows. The movement of the yacht can lead to instability for the runway and models, resulting in a safety risk. Working with professionals experienced in event logistics is essential to ensure the stability and balance of the runway.

Despite these potential technical and safety challenges, hosting a yacht fashion show can provide a unique and unforgettable experience for both the fashion industry and attendees. The stunning backdrop of the open sea and the exclusivity of the event can create a memorable atmosphere that enhances brand exposure and presents networking opportunities. By carefully considering and addressing these potential technical and safety challenges, a successful sea-bound runway can be achieved.

What to wear to the Monaco Yacht Show: Women's style guide

The Monaco Yacht Show is one of the most important events in the superyacht calendar so if you're hoping to do serious business at the next instalment you'll need to look the part. Whether you're in the market and are planning to view many of the superyachts for sale or are simply going to enjoy the social scene, our edit of the best looks for day, dinner and party has every eventuality covered.

A day spent at the Monaco Yacht Show invariably includes a lot of walking and hopping between the must-see new yachts so practicality is key when it comes to getting ready. Opt for a lightweight, loose T-shirt dress with a little feminine flair - Mother of Pearl's embellished version is just right - and wear with your favourite brown or navy leather boat shoes. Choose a versatile tote bag big enough for all your essentials - which in this case should certainly include a pair of classic tortoiseshell sunglasses and an unstructured jacket to protect against the sea breeze. Finish with Cartier's timeless Tank watch for effortless chic.

Wicklow crystal-embellished dress, £648, Mother of Pearl at Matches Fashion ; Silk-trimmed wool blazer, £1,220, Gucci ; Roxette calf tote, £1,100, Mulberry at Harrods ; Mande Cocobolo sunglasses, £224, Oliver Peoples at Pret a Voir ; Tank Anglaise yellow gold and leather watch, £7,650, Cartier

Whether a formal function or private gathering, a dinner at the Monaco Yacht Show should always be an elegant affair. Channel your inner Princess Grace in Roksanda's stunning pink midi skirt paired with a simple polo neck T-shirt and Christian Louboutin's vintage-inspired black suede pumps. Accessorise with Dior's subtle yet utterly beautiful Grande Bal Plisse Soleil watch and add a little wit via Edie Parker's bespoke clutch bag.

Textured wool and silk-blend midi skirt, £1,640, Roksanda at Matches Fashion ; Malaika polo neck top, £310, The Row at My Theresa ; Riri 100 suede pumps, £665, Christian Louboutin ; Bespoke clutch bag, £1,150, Edie Parker ; Dior VIII Grand Bal Plisse Soleil watch, £33,700, Dior

Cocktail parties at the Monaco Yacht Show are a great place to network and meet new people so be sure to choose an outfit with impact and personality. Start with a black jumpsuit - instead of the ubiquitous LBD - and use it as a blank slate on which to add pops of colour. Temperley London's embroidered kimono makes a statement without being over the top and these espadrilles from the Dolce & Gabbana Portofino collection are a brilliant and practical alternative to your usual heels. Keep jewellery pared back - a classic palette of black, gold and white diamond is the perfect foil to all that colour.

Black wool jumpsuit, £1,180, Nina Ricci at Harvey Nichols ; Baudelaire embroidered silk kimono, £1,195, Temperley London at Net-a-Porter ; Portofino printed brocade espadrilles, £255, Dolce & Gabbana at Net-A-Porter ; Mademoiselle Prive Camelia yellow gold and diamond watch, POA, Chanel ; Apple seed diamond earrings, £1,400, Bee Goddess at Harrods
