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.

white clothes

  • 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 dress

  • 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.
