Tie-Dye Fashion: Revitalizing the Age of Aquarius

Tie-Dye Fashion: Revitalizing the Age of Aquarius

May 1, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Tie-dye is so much more than the attire of granola-eating, Phish-listening, aging hippies. I have been a fan of tie-dye since I was young; I loved all the swirly-color goodness I could possibly get! Now every age can let the sunshine in, since tie-dye is once again in vogue for casual wear, work, and even summer weddings.

Though I can’t yet see the green grass, blue sky, and purple flowers from my window, spring is here as far as retailers and fashion forecasters are concerned. While I am looking forward to all the signs of spring, my favorite part of springing ahead is checking out all the season’s fashion trends. And I’m happy to report that there are some great fashion trends to embrace this year!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, unless you’re much fonder of warm days spent boating.  But be of good cheer: though summer seems far off, there are hot gifts for the holidays to make boaters happy!  This season’s most thoughtful gifts are neither automatically expensive nor all mechanically inclined.

SEAMLESS SEASONAL TRANSITIONS

SEAMLESS SEASONAL TRANSITIONS

October 1, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Twice yearly we have familiar discussions about how to properly transition our clothing from one season to the next. Since we are lucky enough to live in an area that has four distinctive seasons, transitioning your wardrobe from, say, summer to autumn, is a necessity. But what isn’t a necessity is buying a whole new wardrobe merely because the temperature drops.

Unless you spend all your time at sea, you have seen how many products have become more eco-friendly and organic. Since you put on clothing every single day, it is time to start thinking about the materials that you wear and how they affect the environment around you. Wearing organic clothing is an easy way to have a positive impact on the environment, and recently, eco-friendly clothing has started to become wallet-friendly!

When it comes to fashion, one thing is for sure: if Brigitte Bardot ever wore it, it is chic and still in style. No one has worn the nautical look better then Ms. Bardot, and when fashionistas close our eyes and picture Breton stripes, many of us picture BB wearing them.

You know it’s summer when you leave your home at 8:00 AM and the temperature’s already rising past 75 degrees. If you’re like me, makeup is a part of your everyday wear, whether you are a full-on face woman or a just mascara and concealer gal. Come summer, all makeup wearers know that to keep makeup from melting off our faces before noon, our products and routines must change

Surround Yourself With Sarongs

Surround Yourself With Sarongs

Who wears sarongs? According to Wikipedia, they are “worn as a kilt by men and as a skirt by women throughout much of South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, the Horn of Africa, and on many Pacific Islands.”   Hereabouts, we adopted the sarong to cover up our bathing suits.  But did you know that […]

A style writer utters the words “bathing suit” and is greeted with two responses: some people cannot wait to get their suits on, while others dread the very idea. Even if you don’t usually fall into the category of boaters anxiously yearning to wear small pieces of fabric, I’m sure you’ll agree that after the winter we just experienced, the thoughts of warmer weather might just be the motivation you need to purchase your dream suit.

Sunglasses are my favorite accessory; simply changing sunglasses can completely transform your look. But these fashion items are also necessities whose importance should not be underestimated.

Most would agree that shimmery skin with a sunkissed glow makes everyone look a thousand times healthier, but the rays of the sun don’t really kiss—they create wrinkles and sunspots! To capture summer’s glow without risking your future health and looks, use a bronzer.

Who Wears What Shorts?

July 1, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

The question might be stuck in your head as “who wears short shorts?”, but barely there or to the knee, shorts are a wearable look for everyone in the summer. When it’s hot, putting on pants is not happening and not everyone feels comfortable in a sundress (especially climbing aboard a boat). But sometimes shopping […]
