What to Wear for a Beach Day – Designer’s pick Rhodes cotton kaftan top

This beautiful style will keep you cool walking to and from the beach in Barbados Dubai or Tenerife as it’s a perfect mid-thigh length.

What Designer Kaftans to wear by the Pool ? – Designer’s pick Tarifa sundress & Monaco short kaftan
Choose your metallic shade of RoseGold or Silver and add a delicate sparkle with the soft cotton Monaco. It’s great to wear reading in the shade and sitting having lunch or brunch. This cool cotton style really does suit all dress sizes from petite to tall and also slim to curvy as we add a bit of room here and there to ensure it fits.
The Paloma kaftan dress is also a great dress to wear when walking to the pool from breakfast or your hotel room as its long enough to feel covered and is very flattering. The drop waist effect slims the hips and hides the tummy whilst the v neck front and back creates a fashionable and flattering look. Choose white or black and simply add metallic sandals or wedges and a beach bag. If this style suits you, we guarantee you will wear this every morning to breakfast and brunch.
For pool side dining and sitting at a beach bar, the Tarifa dress is lovely. Fresh citrus shades of lemon and lime are warmed with the pretty gold accents of coin detail and gold tassels on the gold straps. All of which look like metal but are in fact fabric and coated plastics which can be worn in hot climates which is so important.The detailing around the neckline is so pretty and flattering it takes the eye away from the body drawing attention to your face. The asymmetry of the hand tie dye also creates a slimming effect.
What cover-ups should I wear in a 5 Star Luxury Resort – Designer's pick Crete kaftan top & Seville silk dress
You will need a few designer kaftans and daytime cover-ups if you are staying in a luxury resort, as you probably won’t want to leave and why not! The Crete cotton kaftan tops are perfectly cool and floaty with crystals to subtly shimmer in the sunshine and will look a million dollars. The curved hemline slims the body and you can add our white Sicily shorts to wear for lunch around the pool. Add toning pink or metallic wedges to slim the leg and feel dressed to perfection. The pretty jewel print, designed by design director Lindsey, is shaped to take the eye away from the body creating a slim silhouette.
If you prefer to cover up, the cold shoulder style of our new silk beach dress Seville is for you. This hand painted fabric is so slimming as the colour deepens to lengthen your shape. The back sits low on your bikini or bra strap and the front has a fake tie. The pretty sleeves have a cold shoulder effect, to hide and slim all dress sizes.
Seville is more than a beach cover-up, it’s an outerwear dress. Simply add a skin tone half-slip and a nude strapless bra and you can wear this all night. Just count the compliments you will get as trust us, there will be many.
What to wear on a Catamaran Cruise - Designer’s pick the Manhattan Kaftan Top
Our beautiful silk kaftan top Manhattan has been re-invented this season in stunning shades of papaya and white. Tones of orange are a big trend for Spring Summer and they do suit all skin tones. Sequin accents in Duck Egg, White and Champagne colours make our orange designer kaftans easy to wear.
Our Manhattan tops can be worn over any swimwear, from a bikini to a one piece, they always look stunning.
What to wear on a Nights out in the Maldives or the Caribbean – Designer’s pick the SanMarino off the shoulder & Majorca Tops
Knowing what to wear & packing for your Caribbean holiday can be quite daunting if you are unsure what to wear. Don’t worry, we have designed tops that you can wear in the daytime or evening, whether you are travelling to the Caribbean, Dubai or the Indian Ocean where nights can be hot or heading to Miami and Florida, where the humidity requires cotton or silk and nothing in between.
Majorca is a cold shoulder silk top in the style of the Seville Dress. Designed for effortless nights, the Majorca top is stunning but also so easy to wear. Add a pair of white jeans, or even cut off denim shorts, it’s a beautiful top to flatter all skin tones with its many colours and the cold shoulder design will keep you cool on a hot tropical night.
SanMarino echoes the hot off the shoulder Bardot trend. Be sure to sunbath strapless so you can show off those shimmering shoulders. The pretty rose gold detail on black soft cotton ensures you can wear this daytime, night time and back home. SanMarino looks great over any style of skim pants or wide leg trousers. Accessorise with a black or rose gold slim handbag to look sleek and stylish or add bright coloured shoes & bag for that holiday vibe. Top tip, shop for envelope style clutch bag as these pack flat in your suitcase.
Don't Forget to pack new great fitting skin tone underwear
We also recommend packing a good fitting moulded strapless bra. Whatever your cup size, a moulded strapless bra will give you the support and shape you need. Coloured bras to match your skin tone from beige to browns are much better than white bras.
Here in the Lindsey Brown offices, we wear these styles underneath our silk kaftan tops ; If you are A-D cup a Marie Jo Avero strapless bra is pretty and perfect. For DD-H cups try a Gossard or Wonderbra deep plunge super boost bra. It really works for larger cup sizes or for daytime try a Fantasie Smoothing Strapless in nude tones. Skin toned bras will not show through silk or white. It's really important to have the correct fitting bra to ensure your Lindsey Brown luxury resort wear tops and dresses look amazing and you will feel amazing.
