Well, I'd recommend any (nautical-inspired) derivation thereof the following 16-piece capsule collection in which features everything from a stunning towelling (shawl-collared) resort blazer (styled in a manner akin to some traditional rowing blazers) and a fine Aran (cable-knit) jumper through that of what is a quite fine contingent of time (and performance) tested nautical staples of both the preppy sailing and luxury summer resort variety.
So, whether its the beach alone that holds your draw or a fine vessel along the lines of a catamaran or sailing skiff that awaits your direction, here's what to consider packing and making your own should a resort (sailing) holiday be in the cards in the near future.
Romantic, elegantly refined, minimalist, fresh, functional, and endearingly charming — this capsule wardrobe is sure to please…
By all measures (and most discerning sartorial barometers), the charming 14-piece sailing and resort wear capsule collection presented before you today is one replete with versatile tried-and-true warm-weather (nautical) menswear staples that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functionally astute and universally flattering in wear.
Capable and willing to serve your transitional wardrobe needs well beyond that of their predisposed singular nautical styling confines (ie. consider repurposing the canvas sneakers + tailored shorts for tennis; the blazer, glasses, and panama hat for various other leisurely affairs and warm-weather occasions), each one of these fine summer staple stalwarts (in their own manner) can tastefully transition you from the beach to the high seas without nary a sartorial misstep in the process.

So, pack your bags, grab that moisturizing sunscreen (ideally one with at minimum a SPF30 that will both hydrate and safeguard your skin from the natural elements), and cast off knowing that you can indeed conquer both the beach and the wild blue yonder in sheer sartorial elegance this summer.
And to that I will simply raise a glass to (hopefully) a summer filled with nautical adventure of the merry (and memory) making variety!
