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 clothing is 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 all year round. You have worked hard for your summer adventures 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
"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
Its time to design your summer wardrobe and get prepared for your fun summer adventures, despite the heat.
Make the right choice and buy quality cotton cover ups and feel good knowing you made the right choice.
There’s nothing good that can come out of wearing cheap synthetic clothes that will stick to your skin, possibly cause you rashes and take forever to dry
(they’re like wearing a plastic bag.)
