We have handpicked cover-ups for every part of your holiday.
Cruise Sunbathing & Pool Size - lounging, wear a pink Rumba kaftan top or a short dress such as Paloma or Zanzibar over a bikini or swimsuit. Daytime must haves such as the popular designer kaftan Sorrento are very easy to wear and provide a more opaque designer cover-up. These shapes are perfect to walk around on a cruise ship and also for walking to and from the pool from your luxury villa or hotel.
Island hopping - always pack a strapless dress, wear our bandeau designer beach dress Atheni to avoid strap marks from the bright Caribbean sunshine. Or if you are having a day at the beach Alicia in white cotton will keep your skin protected and can happily take you to lunch at a beach restaurant or hotel is. Dress these styles up with a metallic bag and metallic leather sandals for an effortless chic style for any Caribbean island.
For Sunday brunch on a cruise or a drinks reception - Ladies often ask us what to wear for a brunch in Barbados so here are our suggestions. Pack a strapless floaty Cannes Maxi dress for daytime dining. If you are heading to a more glamorous destination like SandyLane, wear a Martinique maxi. This pretty designer resort wear dress will keep you cool whilst looking elegantly stylish and will look perfect from day to night. If you prefer kaftan tops and trousers, pack a pair of light weight skinny pants in white or black and slip on the oh so light Rumba top in floaty georgette. The quality and finish of our silks ensures its non-sticky in hot tropical heat. Or try the new Crete Kaftan top that can be worn as a top or team with white trousers or shorts.
