St.Barts is the go-to destination for A-listers, supermodels, and socialites who consistently flock to the tropical island for sunshine and seclusion. This exclusive destination mixes the effortless sophistication of the south of France with the character of a Caribbean island. Kate Moss has been a fan of the island for many years, along with Kim Kardashian, Candice Swanepoel, Beyonce and many more. This eclectic mix of visitors means when it comes to what to wear – anything goes! From Birkins at brunch to a casual beach dress at night - if you are looking for laid-back luxury then this is the destination for you.
You are spoilt for choices when it comes to beaches in St.Barts with 16 to choose from. Secluded Colombier is only accessible by boat or go topless at Saline. If you fancy a spot of people watching head to Nikki Beach or Eden Rock and if you want to try your hand at watersports head to Toiny or Lorient for surfing. At sunset head to Do Brazil on Shell Beach where even the chicest of beachgoers will kick off their sandals and sip on a cocktail with their toes in the sand. The freedom of 'anything goes' can mean not knowing at all what to pack, so we’ve put together a capsule wardrobe that will have you covered whatever your St.Barts itinerary.
When it comes to swimwear, Evarae’s sporty one piece is perfect for boat trips and snorkeling, whilst Agua De Coco’s ruffle top swimsuit is perfect for adding a touch of glamour at lunch. Lazul’s maxi kaftans work both as a beach cover-up and as an alternative evening option and are guaranteed to be one of the hardest working pieces in your holiday wardrobe. Don’t forget a lightweight basket bag to carry all your sunbathing essentials such as your favourite book, high factor sun cream, and your wallet. Be sure to pack some snacks and refreshments as many of the beaches are quite a way from the nearest bar.
