Let’s be honest. An ideal summertime day consists of four things: sunshine, rosé, good friends and some kind of water. I don’t care if it’s an ocean, pond or a lake, being on the water on a beautiful day provides an instant boost of serotonin. The only other thing you need is yummy food and a chic outfit.

Whether you’re sailing through the Mediterranean or yachting in the Hamptons, keep scrolling for 15 outfits for a day on the water.
