Nautical Scarves for Sailing: For All Weather Types

Updated: Jul 17, 2022

Sometimes it's fun to dress add up and add a bit of nautical flair to any outfit. Did you know that nautical scarves for sailing will serve two roles? That's right, fashion and function.

Maybe you are intentionally looking for sailing-inspired clothing or accessories or maybe just looking for the functionality of a sailing scarf?

Either way, we have selected top picks for nautical scarves for sailing that add fashion and/or functionality.

What kinds of fashion nautical scarves for sailing are there?

Speaking of fashion, there are many nautical prints and colors to choose from that would compliment any outfit.

Nautical prints typically have the colors blue and white which go with several different outfit color combinations. Sometimes the colors will have splashes of red and gold to make the colors pop.

Some nautical prints consist of stripes, polka dots, ship images, or maps. The prints can be playful and also give off a classy vibe at the same time.

What function do scarves for sailing serve?

The function of nautical scarves for sailing would be to cover your hair so that you don't look like a hurricane blew through your locks. Oh and... to provide warmth. You can easily drape a long scarf around your upper body to protect your shoulders and neck from the wind. It can be chilly on the water, especially on those New England fall days (sounds dreamy).

What type of material are scarves made from?

It depends. Most lightweight scarves on the market are made from 100% polyester (some look and feel just like silk), 100% silk, cashmere, and blended materials.

Depending on the scarves' material for sailing, this may block the wind and provide a sense of heat which is nice for cooler mornings or evenings on the water.

Most of the nautical fashion scarfs for sailing that we reviewed were lightweight which would be perfect for warm weather climates.
