Fall Boating Apparel to Have You Boating in Style
Fall is upon us, which means the weather is slowly cooling down and the sun dips below the horizon a little earlier each day. Whether you’re taking a weekend trip or setting sail for a happy hour toast, be sure to do it in style. Read on for Intrepid Powerboats’ recommendations for this season’s boating attire.
Layer Up for Fall Boating
There’s nothing worse than being splashed by cold water and braving the wind chill. Layering will help you avoid this issue and ensure you are comfortable and dry while you’re out on your Intrepid.
Not only does layering allow you to create the perfect outfit look, it also provides the utmost comfort for long hours on the water. Combine a snug base layer, a colored button-down, and a neutral white, black, or blue windbreaker for the ultimate autumn-appropriate ensemble.
Moisture-wicking t-shirts, tank tops, and long sleeve shirts are the optimal base layers depending on the weather in your area. Look for light, snug-fitting material that will keep you dry and comfortable.
The versatile yet stylish “Women’s Shola 230 Crew” top from Kora Outdoor is an ideal base layer. Made out of yak wool and available in black or obsidian blue, this long-sleeved layer will keep you comfortable and warm out on the water. It’s also stylish enough to work by itself if you have to shed any outer layers.
The “HH Lifa Active Solen Ls” men’s long sleeve from renowned Norwegian brand Helly Hansen is the perfect base layer for men. It’s lightweight and breathable and offers protection from the sun without compromising on comfort. Colors such as white, navy and “oxford blood” are the perfect fall boating wardrobe staples.
A light collared button-down canvas or cotton top is also ideal for autumn excursions.. The button down remains a boating classic that can be easily removed with changing temperatures.
The Columbia “PFG Tamiami II Long Sleeve Shirt” is a prime choice. Columbia has been a boating apparel go-to over the years, and the brand is renowned for its top-quality material, fashionable fits and varied color options.
Complete the layered ensemble with a windbreaker or hoodie so that instead of huddling belowdecks when the wind gets a little too chilly, you’re prepared and can relax with ease.
The Lululemon “Mist Over Windbreaker” for women features water-repellent fabric and a sleek, slim fit. “W Vista Packable Jacket” from Helly Hansen is another great autumn alternative, equipped with functional pockets and a mesh lining. Both fold up very small for easy storage.
“The Windward Anorak” windbreaker from Huckberry is an excellent choice for men, providing all the protection you need high winds on the water. The “Beach Glass” color works well with any fall palette, and overall this piece is very stylish and comfortable.
All in the Details
The best part of yacht wear is in the accessories, and sunglasses, scarves, bags, and hats will tie your fall boating look together. Search for stylish sunglasses that offer the highest UV protection and a polarized lens. Choose a light scarf for windy evenings. High-end brands such as Louis Vuitton offer an impressive selection from nautical-inspired lines.
Opt for a soft bag to bring aboard with plenty of room for all the necessities. The “Wharf Tote” from Sea Bags Maine is the perfect versatile boating bag, crafted with white recycled sail cloth and rope handles.
