Fashion Travel Diaries: The Sun-Drenched Islands of Trinidad & Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago is a twin island nation filled with lush, tropical wonders and heady beats of Soca and Calypso music. The Land of the Hummingbirds enjoys seemingly eternal sunshine – making it the perfect vacation spot any time of the year. And whether it be the world-famous Carnival or the promises of wicked adventures that beckoned you to its shores, you should always be dressed for merriment. Here’s what to pack for this exuberant Caribbean country.

First things first, you need an appropriate suit – and we’re not talking black tie. Trinidad and Tobago is known for its white-sand beaches and balmy tropical weather so you need a bikini you can wear when exploring warm waters and secluded coves. Check out this tropical print Zimmermann bikini that’s characteristic of the land’s varied virtues.

Keep your peepers fashionably shaded in a pair of gold-rimmed Max Mara sunnies. They can go with anything you wear during the day and especially with this gorgeous silk chiffon Roberto Cavalli maxidress. Its flamingo-feather print and sexy thigh-high slit make it fabulously appropriate for al fresco evenings and island parties.

Amp up the fierceness by accessorising with gold jewellery – the bolder, the better. Try these hammered gold-plated Herve Van der Straeten hoop earrings and this statement-making Zimmerman arm cuff.

Adopt the Caribbean people’s love for vibrant colours and keep your island essentials in this cobalt blue, black and white snakeskin Givenchy clutch. Match its pop of colour by slipping into a pair of embellished blue leather Proenza Schouler sandals to complete the look.
