What I Would Wear On A Cruise

Recently, a friend asked me to do a post on cruise-wear. As a frequent traveler, I've learned through the years that it's easier to create a mini mix-and-match wardrobe than it is to pack a lot of different outfits that don't go with anything else.

My personal choices for a cruise wardrobe (see photos below) might seem a little boring to some, but I like the idea of black, white, and neutrals, with pops of color. These are the pieces I would take...some or all, depending on how long my trip was going to be. Also, some cruises might require more evening-wear.

Take at least one lightweight, long-sleeved shirt. I like the loose, white crinkle cotton one below. The sun can get pretty strong in the afternoon...protect your shoulders from getting sunburned. And take a hat.

My preference is to look cool and understated. I don't want to be the "obvious tourist." in Hawaiian shirts, sneakers, fanny-packs, and tee-shirts with witty sayings printed on them.

I tend to under-pack, because I don't like schlepping bags around, but luckily, summer clothes don't take up as much space as bulky winter things. If you like to wear more color, just remember to take colors that co-ordinate well with each other, to avoid packing up everything in your closet.

Don't forget your sunglasses, and your sunscreen! 
Bon Voyage!  C
