MATCHESFASHION Postcard-Perfect Packing List: The Caribbean

Consider fashion paradise found at MATCHESFASHION. It’s our go-to for curating an Instagram-ready holiday wardrobe worthy of a Caribbean sojourn.

From St Barts to Grenada, Anguilla to Antigua, the lush green forests and impossibly white beaches of the Caribbean deserve an equally dazzling wardrobe befitting the paradisical backdrop.

In partnership with MATCHESFASHION


From cocktails to cabanas, snorkelling off the coast of powder-soft beaches to indulgent spa trips, the Caribbean has a lot to offer. With your email firmly set to ‘Out of Office’, your wardrobe should reflect a more relaxed vibe. Think languid floaty dresses, mood-boosting swimsuits, and soignée accessories in a joyous palette of warm yellows, reds, pinks, and golds.

A hard-working holiday capsule wardrobe comprises versatile pieces which can work from day-to-night. ZIMMERMANN is our forever go-to for spirit-lifting floral dresses made for balmy summer days. This strapless tropical-print dress is a true suitcase showpiece: it’s as effortless as a throw-on beach cover-up, as it is elegant for sundowner cocktails on the terrace.

Ample time spent feeling warm sand between your toes is a true indicator of a blissed-out vacation; however, when being barefoot simply won’t do, a pair of studded Valentino Garavani gladiator sandals are more than a reasonable compromise. This raffia basket bag by Loewe Paula’s Ibiza is perfect to stow away your essentials for a relaxing day poolside. It will put you in a sunshine state of mind before you’ve even stepped foot on the plane: and its capacious size means it doubles as the perfect carry-on.

A selection of outfit-enhancing jewellery pieces will elevate any look and add instant polish. Yellow gold looks particularly lovely on sun-warmed skin. We love beach-inspired Baroque pearls for a nod to the locale. Fresh, fun, and feel-good, what’s not to love?
