Hi, I'm Erin and I'm a fashion stylist. You can almost hear it, the sounds of the waves, the steel drums and the ice cubes clinking in your rum punch glass. But before you set sail on your Caribbean cruise, you need to figure out what to pack. Here is one stylish option, our model, Heather is wearing a beautiful maxi dress. The maxi dress is a long dress that falls to your ankle, or lower. This dress by French designer, Catherine Malandrino, really makes a statement. The bright colors and bold stripped pattern are perfect for all your lively cruise festivities. It's also a very practical dress, because it's not only comfortable. The fit and fabric will help keep you cool too. The other wonderful thing about a maxi dress like this, is it's effortlessness. You don't have put a tiny thought about what to wear with this dress. You just throw it on, add some accessories, and voil?, you are Caribbean cruise perfection. When shopping for your maxi dress, I suggest looking for distinctive details. This dress has an amazing neck line, and of course, uniquely bright colors that make it stand out. Whenever I'm packing for a trip, I always try to bring at least one great piece that I really feel special in. This is a dress you can definitely feel special in. It's a fabulous look that can keep you cool, chic and comfortable. The one thing it can't do however, is get Bob Marley out of your head after the cruise. Good luck with that.
