The last year has been an ordeal for us all, and now we can celebrate our freedom in the sunshine.
You want to add some bright, fresh color to your life, but don't forget that as things heat up, you don't want to get caught out feeling sweaty and uncomfortable in the heat because your clothing is in the wrong fabrics.
After living, working & sailing in the Caribbean heat for 10 years, I understand how that feels.
You deserve to look and feel good this summer. You have had enough of lockdown, now its time for some FUN. Don't let your wardrobe hold you back!
After all those years in the Caribbean and most of it on a boat with no air conditioning. I know what it’s like to need clothes that are made specifically for hot, humid days.
I’ve made the mistake of wearing polyester in the tropics and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s why I started West Indies Wear, to help women just like me not make the mistakes I made.
There’s nothing like wearing the right clothes for the right climate.
"I love my Starfish beach tunic! Roomy, keeps me cool on warm days and even doubles as a great top that I wear out to dinner with a white skirt, shorts or crop pants. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it and of course I selected it because our Catalina 350 is named ‘Starfish’ and it’s colors are navy and white!"

"My coral colour starfish tunic enjoying the sunshine on beautiful Cable Beach, Australia. Lovely pure cotton beach and resort wear like this is hard to find!"

"Love, love, love, my West Indies Wear! I have been wearing WIW for about 3 or 4 years now, and I just can't get enough of them. I wear them as a cover-up, a top, pants, and sarongs. They are so comfortable, cool, and breezy. I have turned my friends and family on to them, and they are now wearing them too."

The heaviness you have been feeling for the last year has been hard, but now the season is changing and its time to brighten up your life. You deserve clothing that will make you feel fresh, light and free again.
Make the right choice and buy quality cotton cover ups, that will keep you cool even in the full heat of summer. You will feel good knowing you made the right choice.
There’s nothing good that can come out of wearing cheap synthetic clothes that do not breath. The sweat will stay on your skin, even causing you heat rashes (they’re like wearing a plastic bag.)
The single most important thing to wear in the high heat of summer is lightweight pure cottons.
We recommend you even go a size bigger than normal, or go with brands that are cut with a more generous fit like ours.
There is nothing worse than wearing tight fitting clothing that is made out of synthetic fabrics when it is SUPER HOT.... this will cause you to feel so much hotter, which in turn can cause skin irritations and rashes.
