SWIMWEAR

It’s likely you’ll hit the pool or beach as soon as you arrive, so the first item to pack is swimwear. The style of bathing suit will depend on where you are staying. Is it a ritzy resort or a laid-back bungalow? For the former, be sure to have a showstopping swimsuit to go along with the upscale scene. A suit embellished with sequins, lace, fringe or beads can easily elevate a swim look.

For a more modest, laid-back style that perfectly blends with the tropical bungalow vibe, your best bet is a colorful print swimsuit. Also, be sure you pack the essentials to complete your look. We recommend a stunning cover-up, a beach bag, a pretty pair of sandals, sunglasses and a glamorous hat.

ACTIVEWEAR

If your plans include a day at the spa, be sure to take along a comfortable outfit that’s easy to wear. A sporty dress will be chic and stylish, and it’s quick to get in and out of when changing over to a robe. It’s likely you’ll be keeping up with your fitness routine while away, so before the pampering and massage, you may be visiting the hotel gym or taking daily strolls along the beach. Therefore, pack sensible gym clothes or a warm-up and sneakers too.

NIGHT-OUT CLOTHES

No tropical getaway is complete without a floral maxi dress! Be sure to pack at least one to wear out at night and perhaps another one or two for window-shopping or brunch by the beach. You can’t beat the comfort of a long, flowing maxi dress, plus it’s simple to dress it up or down with different shoes and accessories. Other outfit options to pack are bright colorful tops and crisp white jeans or shorts to pair them with. This type of outfit can work day or night and will look really stylish with an embellished flat or wedge sandal.

TRAVEL CLOTHES

Be sure to pack plenty of wrinkle-resistant travel wear, as well as wearing a travel-friendly outfit on your travel days. Travel dresses and separates are the best choice for comfort and style, and they look smooth and polished right out of the suitcase.
