Cruise Dresses: Express Your Tropical Style

March 19, 2012

Also known as “resort wear“, this is the style of fashion that is designed to be worn year round while vacationing to warm tropical climates. Cruise dresses typically are more bold and flashy, making you turn heads and stand out in the crowd. This specific style of cruise wear is derived from the “nautical” style, inspired by sailor and yachting themes, tropical island colors and patterns, and Hawaiian prints and bright colors. Resort wear is a style that is becoming more widely available, as it has become a cross-cultural style that denotes relaxation, affluence, and the love of warm weather and nature. A cruise dress can have the style of a short cocktail or party dress, or can have a fitted torso with a long flowing or tiered train. The modern day cruise wear dress tends to be bold in color with diamond or sequin accents. Cruise wear is a specialized clothing style designed to help you express your personality, but it doesn’t stop with just the dress- shoes, jewelry, and accessories are important finishing touches.
