Hold onto your wide-brimmed beach hats, my friends! These might actually shock you 😜👇🥁
Life is full of tough decisions. Should I buy the white flip-flops with the blue starfish or the blue flip-flops with the white starfish? Should we have tacos for dinner or spaghetti? Should I get the laundry done or go for a walk on the beach?
But, when I decided to take a walk through history to come up with my TOP 3 favorite West Indies Wear designs of all time… well… it felt a bit like having to choose a favorite child! It’s not easy to pick favorites, but the following three garments sure do make my heart sing!
3. Coral Sarong 💕
2. Ruffle Skirt 🙌
Looking for a new summer skirt that tucks in your tummy? A skirt that is fun, flirty, and flattering? A skirt that moves with our bodies when we enjoy an extra helping at the cruise buffet? A soft and breathable skirt that is heavy enough so it doesn’t blow up in the lightest island breeze? A skirt that comes in colors that suit your island-chic style and match perfectly with your collection of cool, cotton tanks? Hmmm surely this skirt doesn’t exist, right?! Well, up until 2021, it didn’t! And that’s why we designed it together, my Island Girl friends! YOU helped create this skirt. YOU dreamed it into existence and I am so glad you did! Number two on my list is our “Comfortable Cotton Vacation Skirt”, affectionately known to the WIW sisterhood as the “Ruffle Skirt” because of the flirty frill shape. It is made from 100% breathable cotton knit fabric and is a generous 21” length with a foldable waistline so you can adapt it to your preference… How cool is that?! I absolutely ADORE this design and am sure you will too! If you are reading this blog at the time of its release: please note that this skirt is currently in PRE-SALE! After last season's huge demand for this skirt, I ordered a re-stock and it will be hitting our warehouse later this week. You can (and should) SHOP NOW to secure your fave color and size combo, but please note that your order may be put on hold if there are customs/shipping delays.
