The Mediterranean region is the ideal location for your next cruise. With a rich cultural history and miles of sandy beaches to explore, the area continues to be one of the most popular destinations for new and experienced cruisers alike.
So, how do you begin preparing for your adventure in the sun? And perhaps more importantly, what should you wear during the trip?
We’ve compiled a list of stylish pieces based on this season’s top trends. Wherever you’re cruising to, our picks will see you exploring the Mediterranean in style.
What better way to kick your cruise wardrobe into shape than by adding a touch of the nautical trend? Classic blues, whites and reds lead the way with this one and these lace up flats by Candice Cooper are the perfect way to complete any nautical inspired outfit.
The right pair of sunglasses have the potential to truly make an outfit. These marble effect frames from Le Specs ooze glamour and are sure to make a lasting impression wherever you’re shipping off to. We love the on-trend cat eye shape, too.
These beige sandals from Clark Clinkard feature luxe gold detailing for an extra touch of glamour. Paired with a chic summer dress or your favourite kaftan, they’re a versatile option that can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.
This clever dress is made from fabric that contains cooling technology, making it the ideal choice for the hot Mediterranean summer. It’s ideal for enjoying dinner and taking a romantic stroll along the beach at sunset – it’s never been easier to master the nautical trend during the evening.
Bold prints are everywhere this summer and this bamboo print blouse from LA-based brand NYDJ is one of our favourites. Team it with a pair of cropped white capris for a timeless, classic look that will see you from exploring the local area during the day, right through to evening drinks at the local beachside bar.
Keeping your essentials close by is crucial whichever part of the Mediterranean you visit and this Chloe bag by Mia Tui is the perfect way to do it in style. With plenty of compartments inside to hold your phone, sun cream and water bottles, it’s a must-have travel companion for all cruise enthusiasts. The bag comes in a wide range of colours; we love the blue and red for its classic nautical vibes.
Few things say nautical more than a striped tee. This Bardot-style from Dorothy Perkins offers a fun twist on a classic trend and even ticks the boxes of another summer wardrobe staple – bare shoulders. Think of it as the perfect way to subtly flash some extra skin this holiday season.
Planning on going for a dip during your cruise? This swimdress from Peacocks is sure to flatter every shape and is ideal for those wanting to take to the water without showing too much skin. The classic navy and white spot design is a playful way to wear the nautical trend poolside, so don’t forget to pack the sunscreen!
Made from lightweight Tencel, the Lydia dress from Celuu sits just above the knee and is fantastic for cooler evenings on the Mediterranean. The sleeves can be rolled up and fastened, with the removable belt allowing you to adjust the fit depending on your preferred style.
