Beach outfits for Women
1. Cover-up Dresses
Again, these can be layered over swimwear when you are ready to leave the sand. Light and airy, these are perfectly in rhythm with the humidity of Goa’s climate. You don’t have to tie them up like sarongs, and they come in different styles to choose from – kaftans, ponchos or kimonos.
If you plan on getting into the water, a good swimsuit is essential. And Goa is one of the fewest places in the country that is liberal concerning stylish beach outfits. Been working hard at the gym? Here is your chance to redeem those strenuous hours and flaunt your gains.
Sarongs are readily available in any Goan beach market. If you can bargain right, they’ll be a total steal.
4. Cotton Shorts
When on a beach holiday, it is always wise to carry fabrics that dry up easily. Denim shorts not only take their sweet time while drying, but they can also be quite intolerable in the heat. Not to mention the numerous pockets that will have sand pouring out of them for weeks.
5. Spaghettis/Tank tops
Leave your formal looking shirts and dull T-shirts at home. Save space in your bags by packing basic halter-neck spaghettis and racer-back tanks that you are unable to wear normally. The best part is that they can be paired with almost anything.
6. Loose-fitting trousers
Now, there are some of you who are either less inclined to wearing shorts or simply don’t want to get tan lines on your legs. Harem pants, wide-leg pants, linen cargos, palazzos, culottes and gipsy pants are your best friends.
What is more vacation-like than a floral printed sundress accessorised with a sunhat and a pair of Havaianas flip-flops So this is great when you are out for an evening stroll, sightseeing or just grabbing brunch.
8. Long skirts
Skirts that are flowy will ensure that you have the best time dancing your worries away while still feeling the air. No room for sophisticated tight mini-skirts here.
9. Maxi dresses
Be it enjoying a trance party at Curlies or simply stopping by a bar for a couple of drinks; you can never go wrong with a tropical printed maxi dress. Go for off-shoulders and side-slit maxis to spice things up.
10. Printed jumpsuits/playsuits
If dresses are not your thing, try long jumpsuits or playsuits. Jumpsuits, especially printed ones, add to the fun quotient and can also double as beachwear.
