Online retailer Gray and Osbourn, specialising in fashion for the over 50s, suggests five ways to make sure your cruise wardrobe keeps up with you as you go from day trips to late night parties on deck.
Cropped trousers – Short and summary enough to wear in the day, but appropriate and stylish to carry on into the night, cropped trousers also have the benefit of keeping knees covered. Holiday trousers and crops are suitcase essentials for cruises, whether you’re dining on top deck or beachfront bistro, dress with an embellished top and heels for a chic evening look, or dress down for a stroll along the beach and you simply can’t go wrong.
Pashmina – A stylish way to wear strappy tops but not show off too much of the upper arms and shoulders, wrapping a pashmina over you, helps keep the evening chill away, as the party heads into the night.
Wedge – the glamour and style of a heel but without the impracticality, a stylish wedge will work perfectly at a mid-afternoon stroll on the mainland or an after dark party on top deck.
Playful bag - Without the need for the bag to strictly match the outfit as it would need to at a dinner party, a summery bag that’s versatile is just what’s needed to carry your sun cream and a good book.
Statement jewellery – For a less formal occasion a chunky necklace can be very striking – provided it doesn’t compete with the rest of the outfit. A long pendant can be very flattering in this situation and layering with a couple of long chains for a younger, flirtier vibe.
