Stepping onto a yacht to sail out on the Med or even just down the Thames is an experience well worth dressing up for. Setting sail you’ll want to look glamorous, be meticulously on trend and of course comfortable (not forgetting to be prepared for all weather conditions). So let’s look at what is available this season for you to bring some summer vibes on board.

Created using mid-weight knit wool, this is the perfect classic item for wrapping around your shoulders or throwing on as a barrier to the cool ocean air.

Be prepared for all eventualities on the high seas by bringing on board this fisherman inspired raincoat.
