Your Christmas vacation is usually visiting a cold destination with the hope of seeing snow and making a snowman with your family, right? Well, this year my family went on a Christmas vacation that involved a cruise to Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico. I’ve been on many cruises before but have never departed on Christmas Eve. While the north was experiencing a record-breaking snowstorm, my family and I were heading south for a tropical holiday. Well… somewhat… It was still much too cold to work on my tan. This made packing my suitcase more difficult since my usual cruise attire involves a lot of teeny-weeny polka dot bikinis and cover ups – resort style. In addition to eating and partying at sea, dressing well for every occasion is an enjoyable necessity in any weather.
To have great style on the seas, one must always be prepared with many different options. Several trendy looks for fancy dinners and nights dancing away in the middle of the ocean are a must. And don’t forget adorable casual looks that are both fashionable and functional for fun in the sun.
So what do you pack for a winter cruise? Let’s welcome back the nautical look. The sea style look returns as one of the Spring 2011 trends and hello, it’s perfect for sailing away on a luxurious cruise. Suggestion: wear a navy blue and white striped long sleeve and boatneck shirt with skinny jeans. Then transform this sailor day look into night by throwing on a black blazer, red pumps and matching red lipstick.
The adventure gets exciting when taking those first few footsteps off the ship. When exploring land from sea it’s important to wear: 1. Fashionable yet functional clothing 2. Comfortable walking shoes 3. An outfit prepared for any weather, rain or shine. I enjoy exploring and learning about the roots of different cultures so spending the day discovering the Mayan Ruins of Costa Maya was like being a kid with a mouthful of sugar teeth in a candy store – I loved every second of it! Have fun putting together your explorer outfit. Be daring and a trend setter by mixing tribal and vintage inspired prints together.
Wherever your cruise adventures are sailing off to, make your vacation memories more amazing by being styled for land and sea!
