At some point on your cruise, you’ll want to sip fruity drinks with cute little umbrellas on deck preferably near a pool. So, you’ll want to bring a couple of bikinis if you don’t want to wear the same swimwear for the whole cruise. Bathing suits should be worn only at the pool though slipping on a skirt or shorts and cover-ups are fine for lido lunching. Since cruises allow you to enjoy that wonderful ocean view, don’t forget sunglasses and hats to keep your face out of the sun. Also, a deep V- neckline top with dressy shorts will make you look fashion forward. Just keep in mind, short shorts must be limited near the poolside to keep the luxury theme going.
Another exciting adventure with cruises, are excursions or little trips you can take at the different ports your ship stops throughout the course of your trip. Some of them include some sort of physical activity, shopping trips, riding bikes, boat rides in the ocean, city tours, and a lot more activities. So, you need to wear clothes that are comfortable, lightweight, and easy to move around in. You may wear nautical inspired look being more appropriate on a cruise. Also, comfortable outfits such as jumpsuits, dress, culottes, practical sandals, heels, are great as long as the style looks crisp, classy, and casual. You may want to skip wearing denim ripped jeans to keep the luxurious feel of your adventure though you may don some shorts and pants in more elegant cuts and fabrics.
Most cruises have dress codes on what you can wear at the formal dinner. So, saving more casual pieces for the buffet is always a safe bet. Cocktail dresses or even sundresses look cool on casual dinners. Just throw on a pair of stilettos, classic pumps, heeled sandals, and some statement jewelry. You may try to look for dresses that are interchangeable so you can wear them for any occasion and can just spice up by different types of accessories.
Since formal nights are held, it’s better to dress up by wearing formal night wear such as ball gowns or floor length gowns just like you usually wear on a wedding or some other type of formal party. It’s no surprise that eating gourmet meals in the dining room every evening on a cruise is a definition of a good time.
And of course, don’t forget your comfortable nightwear such as night kimono, silk robes, and such.
Enjoy your glamorous fashion style while staying relaxed, laid-back, and chic on a cruise. Bon Voyage!
