Yacht Rock. It’s not just a music genre, it’s a vibe! I recently went to a sold-out show with the band Yacht Rock Review. I have to tell you, Yacht Rock Clothing is a thing. From hats to shirts. Shorts to shoes and accessories. If you want to set the mood this summer on the beach, at the pool, or on the boat, you have got to get into some Yacht Rock gear! Oh and the best part is, you don’t even need a Yacht just some cool Yacht Rock Clothing! 

First a little history. According to Wikipedia, Yacht Rock  ”is a broad music style and aesthetic commonly associated with soft rock,  one of the most commercially successful genres from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s. Drawing on sources such as smooth soul, smooth jazz, R&B, and disco, common stylistic traits include high-quality production, clean vocals, and a focus on light, catchy melodies. ” Its name, coined in 2005 by the makers of the online video series Yacht Rock, was derived from its association with the popular Southern Californian  leisure activity of sailing. 

So the music fits the vibe. Think Christopher Cross, Toto’s Africa, and of course the Yacht Rock Staple. Baker Street. Imagine yourself with a glass of sparkling white wine, cruising near Santa Barbara on your Benetti, and you’re there. Now you just need the clothes. You need this look!   

Well, the look is fire, in my opinion. From middle-aged guys with dad bods to young Yacht Rockers flaunting their open Hawaiian shirts, anyone can get down with this look this summer! Oh, and it’s not just the fellas. The ladies can find their Yacht Rock Clothing groove with hats shirts and more!
