Heading out on a cruise this year? Whether you're heading out for a cruise abroad this summer or sailing about in the months to come, you'll want to be prepared. There will be plenty of sun, and lots of opportunity for style, but maybe not the most space in your luggage. Pack up your bags right with a few cruisewear must-haves to get you ready from head to toe.
These are the top 5 cruisewear essentials:
Of all the items you'll want to pack for that big vacay, Lindsay Phillips sandals are probably the most important. Most likely, you won't have very much space in your bags. Even if you do have some room, you don't want to fill it to leave room for your vacation souvenirs. This is where Lindsay Phillips comes in. These awesome little flops are the one shoe with countless looks. Simply pack one base pair of shoes (flops, wedges, ballet flats, etc.) and then you can bring several pairs of interchangeable straps and snaps to customize them to your liking. Wearing something a little dressier? You can opt for a little more sparkle with a pendant like the Lindsay Phillips Honor Snap. Just heading to the deck to soak up some rays? The Lindsay Phillips Darcy snap featuring a starfish is absolutely adorable!
Say, "hello" to summer and all of your exciting trips with that perfect pop of color. KikiSol tunics are the go-to option for looking great, feeling comfortable, and giving off those cheery vacation vibes with all of the brightest dyes and prints. KikiSol tunics are ultra light which makes them ideal for the summer heat and a fantastic top to pair with a cute pair of capris or wear over a swimsuit for a bit of extra coverage.
If you haven't heard of Oh My Gauze, this brand's look is all their own. One might describe their style as relaxed and eclectic, but, best of all, it's so easy to wear. Oh My Gauze has a line of tops, pants, and jackets that are 100% cotton and the items are prewashed so you don't have to worry about them shrinking! They are meant to have a slight texture, so you also never need to iron them. Perfect cruisewear.
Southwind dresses are actually a personal favorite. These amazing little dresses are hands down the easiest way to look spectacular with zero effort. Their A-line dresses are super flattering, and some even have empire waists to make them even more figure enhancing. The strapless dresses are a wonderful option for calling attention to the shoulders and face. The colors and prints are both preppy and pretty, featuring patterns that include crabs and nautical knots. The dresses from Southwind are also very light, made with a swimsuit material for next level comfort no matter what you are doing. You can feel great and look put together as you head from the pool right to a nice lunch.
If you're making the most of your trip, you'll be outside most of the time. Keep the sun out of your face in the most stylish way possible. Kooringal visors and hats are the definition of beach chic, giving you a way to avoid sun spots and burns while looking the part of the classy vacationer. There are even Kooringal sun hats with built in UPF50 (how sneaky)!
