Summer Style Guide: Outfit Suggestions for Women
The temperature has reached a scorching 90 degrees Fahrenheit, but a carefree Bajan would be “cool!” or “just chilling!” On that same day you might go into the City, or some other place where people congregate, and see a young lady “dressed to death” in knee-high boots and a winter coat!
Since it is always summer time in the Caribbean, those who come in from the cold can get the opportunity to “dress up” or “dress down” in any style, colour, or material that suits their fancy.
Here are a few suggestions:
- Denim is the material from which jeans and other articles of casual clothing and accessories are made. So for that casual look denim is the way to go. Whether you choose jeans, shorts, skirts, shirts, jumpers, jackets, or even sneakers, you can still achieve that casual, yet stylish, look. Too besides, not only does denim not require much pressing, but it seldom needs to be washed.
- Sundresses, especially the ones made from cotton, are ideal for keeping one cool when it is very hot outside. These cute dresses, with the sophisticated look, are suitable for most occasions.
- You can never go wrong with long, or short, white pants in the summer time. Almost any top blends with white pants; but it is hard to be missed if you are wearing a brightly coloured top, such as pink, yellow, red, green or blue. A pair of sunglasses and your favourite sandals would complete the picture.
- Maxi Dresses may be slightly uncomfortable, to some people, in the heat of the summer, but they are available in many styles and fashions, and are, in fact, quite popular during the summer months. Be sure to pick a material, such as cotton, which would absorb the perspiration and keep you cool.
These ideas and options, should be helpful to those visitors who are not familiar with the culture of summer wear in the Caribbean.
