Three Fashion Tips for a Tropical Vacation

Caribbean islands, Tahiti, Maldives, Hawaii, and the Bahamas are among the top tropical destinations for vacations. They are the ideal getaways for travelers who long for the sea breeze and calming whispers of the waves. For fashion nerds, however, going on a retreat is not an excuse to look shabby and unstylish.

The Fabrics

fabric typesBefore we discuss the proper fashion style for a tropical vacation, you have to learn about the fabric types first. Tropical islands are humid, and you will get sweaty quickly there. You should pick a clothing fabric that can circulate air and conceal your sweats well.

If you think that this section is too much to learn, you should imagine this situation. You are visiting Singapore, and you meet some colleagues there. If your outfit can’t handle humid weather, you will embarrass yourself with over perspiration.

Besides, the chances are that you are not going to stop only at one place in Clarke Quay. The riverside view, mall, pubs, and restaurants with international cuisines are all the amenities you can have there. Imagine if you have to explore them while bathing in sweats.

Here is a list of clothing fabrics that suits best with humid weather:

  1. Cotton
  2. Linen
  3. Rayon
  4. Denim
  5. Chambray

The Bright and Colorful Tone

A garment with colored stripes, crochet shorts, bikinis, rompers, tunics, flat sandals, beach wedges, and an embroidery bag are the items you need to include in your travel luggage. You should forget the idea of traveling light if you want to be stylish in a tropical vacation. In this context, less does not mean more because you will need to change your clothes once they get sweaty. And if you bring only a few of them, you will end up with a bunch of smelly outfits.

For men, opting for a colorful style does not mean that you can choose red or green. Navy blue, white, light brown, light gray, and khaki are your safe colors. They can deflect the heat and maintain your body temperature well.

Managing Your Outfits

stuff to packIf you are planning to travel for weeks or even months, you should think about how you are going to deal with your laundry. The good thing about going to tropical islands is that you can wash your clothes by yourself and dry them outside. Therefore, to do so, you need three to five wire hangers and a drybag.

The use of wire hangers is obvious, and you may be wondering the reasons for the drybag. First, the waterproof feature will allow you to store damp clothes without leaving a mess. Second, the seal is also strong enough to prevent the odor of dirty clothes from escaping. Third, the drybag’s design enables you to stuff many items there. If you roll your clothes, an average size drybag can fit up to 30 clothing pieces.…
