They are basically light, breathable, canvas or cotton shoes with a soft sole and a jute braided rope all around the edge. They were originally worn by the peasant class but over the years have evolved into a fashion icon worn by both the genders. Thus, this summer, pack them for your relaxing cruise trip and experience the ultimate comfort weds style vibes!
Spending considerable time by the deck’s pool is one of the must-dos on a cruise vacation and doing it in style is our dude’s speciality. Consider going for a striped crew neck t-shirt and blue denim shorts for that easy laidback look by the pool. You can also switch the t-shirt with a printed tank for a more tropical feel. Go nautical in those blue and white striped espadrilles and send out sea vibes in style. Accessorize with a suede belt and a summer hat and you are all set to lounge by the pool.
Dinner dates can crop up anywhere anytime and you should be ready for it! When you get a dinner date on the cruise, try going for a dark grey long sleeved shirt with a pair of tan chinos for that smart suave look. You can also add on a printed bow-tie for that quirky touch that elevates the look further. Try on a nice, textured pair of espadrilles for a more relaxed aesthetic. And completed with your million dollar smile, your date is going to be swept off the deck!
