Fashion on the Water


Summer is finally here, and with it comes all the fun. This summer you will see the resurgence of polka dots. You will find them in romantic tops, slacks and accessories. Florals, cold shoulder tops and dresses will continue to be hot trends. Rompers and jumpsuits are also top choices for this season. Nautical styles with subtle mariner stripes, feminine detailing and clean lines in whites, blues and reds are always popular for boating. Use large straw handbags, slide sandals, and bold accessories to turn up the volume on any casual outfit.

Buckeye Lifestyle had the honor of featuring looks from amazing local boutiques in the most beautiful setting on the water. We want to thank the team at Buckeye Lake Yacht Club for allowing us to use such a unique and beautiful place to shoot the summer fashion. Buckeye Lake Yacht Club was founded in 1906 and is still one of the top spots for boating in Central Ohio. We hope you enjoy your summer and remember to shop local!
