After living, working & sailing in the Caribbean heat for 10 years, I understand what it's like to struggle in the heat and humidity.
You shouldn't have to worry about feeling uncomfortable in the heat because your cover-ups are synthetic, or be too embarrassed to go for a swim because you don't have the right cover-ups.
You deserve to look and feel good on your holiday.... goodness knows you have waited long enough! You have survived the lockdowns, your long awaited holiday adventure is coming and your wardrobe shouldn't stop you from having fun.
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!"
— Barbara Janczak - Sydney
"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."
— Dawn De Rosa - Bahamas
This pandemic has had this heavy feeling hanging over you, but now the season feels like its changing and maybe it's time to plan your overseas holiday. 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 tropical heat. 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).
Wondering what is HOT for 2022? My designer tip is that Hot Pink is !
What even is hot pink? Hot pink is a shade of pink that is between light pink and dark pink
I don't know if you have noticed but its already everywhere, even as we head into Autumn. Everyone is into hot pink... from your newsreader, weather lady to the lady down the street.
According to Color Psychology "Pink is a positive color that represents compassion and love. Color pink is a sign of hope, and it evokes comforting feelings." after the last 2 years of change and uncertainty of the pandemic, we sure are looking for HOPE and POSITIVITY this year.
