We’re often asked what designer beach cover ups to pack for a Caribbean cruise, so our resort wear style team have gone through their holiday albums and gathered their thoughts to come up with some simple style tips to make it easy to plan a stylish and versatile cruise wear wardrobe with three main occasions or outfits to consider on a tropical cruise.

Daytime: What to wear by the pool or at poolside bars on a Cruise

Most cruises follow the same rules as luxury resorts, asking guests to wear designer beach cover-ups when having lunch or sipping a daytime cocktail so it’s advisable to pack a few designer beach cover ups that you can slip over your swimsuit to protect your skin when you’ve had too much sun and that also keeps you cool and comfortable when you’re relaxing in a restaurant or bar. Natural fabrics such as cottons or silks are best in humid climates as they’re soft and breathable helping you to stay cool calm and collected whatever the temperature. If suitcase space is tight then loose fitting designer kaftan or a designer beach dress is the ideal choice as they’re easy to pull on over any swimwear and at the same time they’ll ensure you can float around to your cabin looking fabulous.

Daytime: What to wear when going ashore...

Our Lindsey Brown off the shoulder bardot dresses and designer beach dresses are perfect for daytime on a Cruise as you will feel perfectly dressed, you could easily wear to lunch at the Cliff in Barbados. If you are stopping off at St Kitts and visiting the Sandals resort, you would feel stylish and comfortable in hot sunshine. Paloma is a great daytime style designer beach dress, the drop waist is very forgiving to hide a tummy and flattering with its V neck and back. 

Beach trips for a day ashore, as some cruises will just do a beach drop off so you can wear your designer beach cover ups throughout the day on the beach. The spectacular beaches are a wonderful back drop for the stunning Lindsey Brown designer beach cover ups to be seen. Relax and enjoy watching the world go by on the sandy beaches and swim in the sparkling turquoise waters. As soon as you throw on your designer cover up over swimwear you are ready to dine at a beach front restaurant feeling comfortable, covered up, and looking stylish.

Evening Attire: What to wear for casual ashore.

One of the most important tips from our designer Lindsey Brown, always wear something that feels comfortable and fits well in the Caribbean humidity. Our natural fibre silk and cotton styles are so cool to wear. The stunning cotton designer bardot tops are so versatile as they style well with shorts for daytime then team with white fitted trousers for dinner, a classic look.

To make the most of your holiday wardrobe we would recommend choosing floaty designer beach cover ups and pretty designer beach dresses that you can dress up or down, simply changing your accessories to create truly versatile outfits to wear on your Caribbean holiday.
