The Basic Travel Fashion Run Down for a Sun-filled Christmas Holiday in Barbados
You’ve made your room reservations, you’ve booked your flight, and now it’s time to pack your bags to head off to your sun-filled Christmas.
But wait! What will you bring?
Pack for the weather
December is one of the cooler months in Barbados, with temperatures reaching a possible 29°C / 84°F in the day, and dropping to around 23°C / 73°F at night. But, even though it is cooler this time of year, the general climate is still humid. You’ll need to wear clothing that will keep you cool and comfortable; think along the lines of lightweight clothing and natural fabrics such as cotton and linens.
Here’s a list to give you some ideas.
1. The ever trusty cotton T-shirt
That’s right! This handy garment is a treasure for all climes. Good for layering in winter and excellent wear on its own in warm, sunny destinations.
2. Camisoles/Tank tops
These will keep you cool throughout the day while allowing your skin to be kissed by the sunshine.
Flirty. Practical. Chic. Essential.
Let your legs embrace the freedom of easy, breezy, daily warmth. Perfect for ladies and gents.
For those moments when you guys would like to give your jeans a rest. This type of pants will be a must have for your sun-filled Christmas holiday in Barbados.
6. Stylish and light long sleeved shirts
Switch it up with a shirt with longer sleeves. This can work for an elegantly casual look, or even for those moments when you would prefer a little shelter from the sun.
Don’t forget, clothing with camouflage print is not allowed if you’re visiting Barbados as a civilian. It’s illegal.
A great outfit can always benefit from the right accessories, and all without making your suitcase heavy.
Protect your eyes while you enjoy your days in the sun.
2. A Hat
One of these can be ideal for a day at the beach or during an island tour.
Change the look of a casual outfit. Dress it up with a pashmina wrap or scarf!
For the guys, dress up your casual look with a fashionable belt and blazer.
Pack the right footwear – this cannot be left out!
Flip-flops and sandals are great, they keep your feet cool and are convenient when taking a spontaneous stroll on the beach. However, there will be occasions when you’ll need different type of footwear to adorn your feet.
Handy for walking long distances or if you intend to go hiking.
2. Dress shoes
Trendy footwear will be a plus for a night of dancing and dining.
And that’s it! A few travel fashion basics to think on when you’re packing for your sun-filled Christmas holiday in Barbados.
