1. Amp Up the Color

It may be snowy dark and gray at home but there’s going to be an explosion of sunlight and color when you arrive at your tropical getaway so be sure to pack lots of bright colors.




2. Go Bold with Prints

Vacation time is a fun time, meaning don’t forget to pack lots of lively tropical prints. Palm leaves, tropical flowers, exotic birds, and animal prints all look fabulous on a cruise on their own or mixed with neutrals and brights.


3. Stay Light and Lose weight

It’s going to be hot, hot, hot so leave the heavy jeans at home and pack white, lightweight pants and capris, cropped and cargo pants. Linen is ideal since it keeps you cool.


4. Show Some Skin

Time to unbutton and relax. Shorter skirts and sundresses show off tanned legs. Lace-up and deep V necklines are cool and sexy. Sleeveless feels totally natural on board even if you usually prefer sleeves back home.

5. Keep Accessories Playful

Forget tight stud earrings and serious necklaces. Go for dangly tassel earrings in bright colors, playful necklaces, charming hats, and big arm candy. The more, the better.


6. No Serious Purses

No need for heavy leather purses that look far too serious. A straw tote is so much more practical and super cute too.
