2018 sailing style must-haves under $100


It’s nearly summertime and that means the influx of beach-filled days and weekend activities by the water.

For those working in busy and crowded cities like New York, summer weekends offer the opportunity to escape from the madness, with many companies offering perks like shorter hours and half days on Fridays.

One of the best ways to do this is by hitting the nearest beach town and watching any of the sailboat races that glide through.

Race watching is filled with flirty drinks, loud conversation, a lot of time in the sun and is an overall very social experience — but part of playing the maritime expert is looking the part, and we all know how that can get very expensive very quickly.

The nautical style is characterized by its subdued colors, simple patterns and subtle yet playful accessories — chances are, you probably have enough of the basics in your closet already.

But if you don’t (or if you’re just in the mood for an upgrade) we’ve got you covered on everything you’ll need — from sunblock to sunnies, layers to loafers — all under $100 and all on-trend.

So whether you’re a seasoned boater or have never even stepped foot on a dock, here’s everything you’ll need to make it look like you grew up standing on the bow of the boat — on a budget of course!
