What have you ever worn on a cruise that made people stop and look ?

I wore a kilt from Utilikilts on one cruise ( well, 2. It was a B2B ).    It wasn't a tartan, as that would be disrespectful, in my mind anyway.  I received several comments, most common being  " are you ? ",  implying , are you au naturel under there ?  The answer is an emphatic NO!!!!.  One English woman whom I had met in the laundry room between cruises recognized me as, one of the guys in those kilts ( friends also had them ) asked me what clan my family was. I thought about it, and told her Kohain ( the Jewish priests ).  She had a quizzical look on her face so I told her it was just a fashion thing.   She thought it was really cool.   Well, I've outgrown ( overgrown ? ) that kilt, so I ordered a new one for our upcoming cruise ( which is why I posed this question ).    So if you are on the Breakaway from the 9th - 16th, and you see a pair of hairy legs protruding from under a grey kilt in the MDR, that will be me  Big Smile

How cool! Be sure to post a photo of you wearing it with your review. A friend of mine, who is Scotish, wore his for every formal night on a cruise that we went on together. I teased him about checking out what he wore underneath so he sent me a photo before the cruise of what he wore underneath. So funny....

I rarely wear anything that would cause people to stare at me but one time my sister and I showed up wearing the same outfit at a cocktail party on a cruise. We didn't have time to change so we just laughed about it. Since we are twins and look alike, we kinda stood out. We did get lots of stares that night.

Since you're twins, you could have just said that your mom still dresses you

I have a few friends who sport those utilikilts and they love them. I've not seen one on a cruise though.

Neither hubby nor I like to stand out too much... and neither of us are fashionistas so I can't claim to have ever gotten comments or looks for my wardrobe choices.

I have received a few comments on my Jerry Garcia ties. That's about it.

Those are my favorite ties also.

I have a pair of red wedge espadrilles I got a few compliment on.
