Cruisewear guide

Cruisewear guide

Online fashion boutique, Gray & Osbourn has created the essential cruisewear wardrobe equipped to guide fashion-savvy women through their cruise wardrobe.

Of course a faultless cruise wardrobe includes the perfect ensemble of day-to-night dresses, casual cropped trousers, swimwear and an array of accessories. But, just as importantly, an appropriate cocktail dress that is perfect for formal evenings on board is a cruise holiday essential.

Just follow this guide and you simply can’t go wrong:

The Cocktail Dress – It’s all about texture and fabric this season and lace is at the top of the list. Delicate lace overlay and detail add a touch of femininity to an outfit making the ultimate sophisticated look for dinner with the captain. Whether dancing under the stars or formal dining this lace and jersey crepe cocktail dress is a cruise wardrobe must-have. Click here for Vera-Mont Dress or for our full collection click here

The Jersey Dress – Completely versatile and a breathable fabric that suits women of any age or size. If you’re looking for comfort with style on board, a jersey dress is a definite staple when packing for a holiday on a cruise. Simple yet classic, a jersey fabric can be worn for dinner or simply thrown on when out shopping on the mainland. This Joseph Ribkoff tiered dress adds some extra texture to an already stand out piece, with a body sculpting silhouette and cutaway neckline, the dress is the ultimate in feminine glamour.

Cropped trousers – A functional yet fashionable alternative to shorts that are lightweight and summery 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 in more conservative locations.

Wedges – 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 deck. These suede and cork wedges are perfectly on-trend in jade green and natural cork and designed to comfortably take you from walking on deck to dinner, and dancing under the moonlight.

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 suncream and a good book.  This colour pop bag is not only on-trend for the season, it’s the ideal way to fast track your wardrobe into spring/summer and provides plenty of storage when visiting the mainland.

Swimsuit – Lounging on deck, swimming in the ocean or sunbathing on luxurious sandy beaches – finding the perfect swimsuit is the key to a relaxing holiday. Whether it’s a full bathing suit, bikini or tankini, choose a type that has a comfortable fit and makes you feel glamorous. This Anita ruched bandeau suit offers a body contouring cut with moulded bra cups and detachable straps – allowing you to have two looks in one. Click here for Anita Swimsuit
