Côte d’Azur : Pack Only Your Best
Oh, mon cher, the Côte d’Azur is divine for reason upon reason, one of which is fashion. Tracing this magnificent French coastline rimming the Mediterranean you’ll find the most stylish yachting crowd around. This Best of Yachting essentials checklist should help you pack a powerful valise in the style of Southern France.
The French do swimwear as deliciously as they do croissants, wine, and crème brulee.

Perfect protection for les yeux from Cote d’Azur sun, Dior’s new metallic shades in pink and gold continue the French influence. For him, Cazal’s timeless originals with gold detail keep the view handsome from both sides of the lens.
Days are casual on the Cote d’Azur, but men should keep long pants and jackets handy, as many establishments require them, particularly the French casinos in Monte Carlo. For an appealing Cote d’Azur casual look appropriate by day, follow Michael Kors’ advice and opt for a slim white pant, paired with black silk tee. Carry along a black sport coat. Go all white if the season’s right. Daytime for her can’t be anything but chic in this stylish white edge from Dior.

The charming footnote is from Christian LaBoutin in the beautiful, red-soled Suspenodo. Remember, as fond as we all are of stilettos, they are a definite no-go on a yacht. Barefoot dancing, however, decidedly is.
