Five Styles To Pack for a Caribbean Vacation (No. 4 Is Scandalous!)By The DivaGals | May 25, 2017 | Style
Ok Divas! We know whenever we head on vacation, we often go into panic mode when it comes to deciding on what to pack. Not only do we have to be smart, because you can only fit so much in a suitcase, but we also want to make sure that every outfit is supa cute!
We’re pretty impressed with the looks our Divalicious EIC Delaina Dixon pulled together for her Royal Caribbean Bermuda cruise. If you’re heading to a warm Caribbean climate, you can pretty much guarantee that you’re going to need summer clothes, and you may have to figure out the dress code for your resort/ship/Airbnb stay. And then there are the events you have to attend. So here are five clothing styles that always work wonders and are always on point!
Stripes. Whenever vacation season hits, one thing’s for sure – stripes always work. Call it cliche, but there’s definitely something about nautical vibes and holiday wear that works well together. If you’re the kind of person that likes to keep a vacation wardrobe separate to your everyday wear, then you’re going to love picking up cute stripes playsuits and dresses to wear to the beach or out to dinner. Plus, stripes are classic so that you can keep your chosen items for years. We’re loving this cute striped Amina top from Guess. You can wear it with shorts or pair it with a maxi skirt for an evening out.
Prints. Another vacation wear favorite is prints. Cause when you’re headed to the beach or overseas, you’re going to want to spice things up a little, and prints are a fun way to do that. Whether you want something palm printed or a tile theme, stores like Alfred Dunner provide new styles all women will love year after year. Classic shapes and fun colors are the tricks to making your vacation prints timeless.
Maxi. When you’re headed to the beach, there’s nothing quite like packing maxi length skirts and dresses to make you feel in the mood. The best part is that regardless of what style, print or color you buy, they’ll never go out of style. When you wear something maxi, you instantly feel as if you’re in vacation mode. Whether you’ve gone for something Hawaiian themed or even a tribal print, the long flowing fabric always makes you feel vacay ready. You can get some chic maxi skirts and dresses for under $50 at FashionMia.com.
Crochet. You can really rock some crochet when it comes to a summer holiday. From the streets of Europe to Cali’s hottest beaches, crochet is a super cool vacation style fabric that just works. There are tons of ways to wear crochet too. From a simple crochet bikini to a multicolor skirt or even tiny crochet inserts in a top that you love, working this timeless vacation trend into your holiday wardrobe is always a lot of fun.
Denim. It might be a heavy fabric, but denim can work incredibly well when you want a super casual vacation look. From jean shorts styled with fringe for the beach, or a sweet little denim dress for an evening out, it’s a comfortable, versatile fabric that deserves a spot in every year’s packing pile. And the best part? The pieces your pick up will also work in your everyday wardrobe, so it’s a win-win!
