Summer has arrived, and for many New Jerseyans, that means it’s time to head to the Shore.

There’s nothing like spending the day out on the water with friends or family: the cool breeze, the chance to take a dip when the temperature rises, the ability to explore the coastline in a new way.

So, it’s only appropriate to pick up a few fashions for any boat jaunt you may be taking this season. The below items, many of which are available at local Jersey Shore shops, also translate to a day on land, so you’ll be able to keep your boat-inspired style going all summer long.
