2020 was an ordeal for us all. Goodness knows when we will be able to go overseas again, and now we are headed into another winter.
You want to take that holiday up north, but remember it's hot up there, even in mid-winter. You don't want to get caught out feeling sweaty and uncomfortable in the heat because your clothing is in the wrong fabrics.
After living, working & sailing in the Caribbean heat for 10 years, I understand how that feels.
You deserve to look and feel good. Now it's time for some FUN. Don't let your wardrobe hold you back!
After all those years in the Caribbean and most of it on a boat with no air conditioning. I know what it’s like to need clothes that are made specifically for hot, humid days.
I’ve made the mistake of wearing polyester in the tropics and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s why I started West Indies Wear, to help women just like me not make the mistakes I made.
There’s nothing like wearing the right clothes for the right climate.
"I love my Starfish beach tunic! Roomy, keeps me cool on warm days and even doubles as a great top that I wear out to dinner with a white skirt, shorts or crop pants. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it and of course I selected it because our Catalina 350 is named ‘Starfish’ and it’s colors are navy and white!"

"My coral colour starfish tunic enjoying the sunshine on beautiful Cable Beach, Australia. Lovely pure cotton beach and resort wear like this is hard to find!"

"Love, love, love, my West Indies Wear! I have been wearing WIW for about 3 or 4 years now, and I just can't get enough of them. I wear them as a cover-up, a top, pants, and sarongs. They are so comfortable, cool, and breezy. I have turned my friends and family on to them, and they are now wearing them too."

The heaviness you have been feeling for the last year has been hard, but now the season is changing again and its time to plan your holiday up north. You deserve to brighten up your life, and choose clothing that will make you feel fresh, light and free again.
Make the right choice and buy quality cotton cover ups, that will keep you cool even in the heat up north. You will feel good knowing you made the right choice.
There is nothing good that can come out of wearing cheap synthetic clothes that do not breath. The sweat will stay on your skin, even causing you heat rashes (they're like wearing a plastic bag).
