If you’re like me and like to get dressed up, even if it means going to buy groceries, then you’ll love what’s to come. Here at MissMalini we decided to do a whole series of ‘What to Wear Where’. Essentially it’s a guide to what’s appropriate and whats not for different types of outings. Between MissMalini and I we’re always looking for new clothes and sensible dressing for our events. Designers reading this feel free to send us clothes!

The biggest rule when invited to an event is to assess what type of event it is. In this case it’s a Regatta or a Yacht party. Remember if you’re going to be on a boat, you’re going to be by water.If you’re daddy isn’t a sailor, you probably don’t have your sea legs yet. Above is just a few pictures of what the whole nautical inspiration is all about.

I personally love this style of dressing, it’s simple, classic and practical. don’t be afraid to mix stripes together, but make sure you vary the direction or size of the stripes. Wear cute shorts or comfortable trousers, they perfect for climbing aboard a yacht! I’d say avoid a skirt considering there is so much breeze, lets face it not all of us look like Marilyn Monroe with her dress in the air! From my experience, you usually take off your shoes when on a boat but some allow you to wear them. In any case don’t bring out the stilettos, a pair of ballet flats or wedges are ideal. Carry a bathing suit or sexy bikini, you’re surrounded by water, you’re bound to be tempted! Essentials to this look are accessories, which give this otherwise casual outfit a lift. I’d say layer on the necklaces instead of bangles and earrings. Throw on a great jacket and bag to complete the look.

Just remember my motto, Keep it Chic.
