What to wear when you are in Goa?

Just keep one thing in mind, put your comfort above everything and you are all set to go.

Be it a beach trip, Palolem, an evening of indulgence in Baga beach’s electrifying nightlife, sunbathing, or a casual day, here are a few clothing items one must carry in Goa to not feel out of place.

Cover-Up Dresses: These dresses can be layered over swimwear whenever the lady is ready to leave the sand again. Airy and light are perfectly in rhythm with the humidity of Goa’s salty climate. No one needs to tie them up like sarongs and come in different styles to choose from ponchos, kaftans, or Kimonos.

Sarongs: These dress material gives you a pure beachy vibe and can be easily thrown over the swimwear you were planning to wear. You may even turn sarong into a wrapping style, dress, and comfort altogether. Those dresses come in a large variety of vibrant colors that accentuate the overall vacation mood as well. Actually, one more thing about these dresses is that they set up a vacation mood and can also be tied up in different ways. Sarongs are also available in any flea or goan beach market. One more additional deal would be if you can bargain then it will be a total steal.

Monokinis or Bikinis: A beautiful swimsuit is necessary if one is planning to get into the water. Among all the beach places, Goa is one of the places which is quite liberal concerning any stylish beach outfits or costumes. Working hard at the gym? Here is the chance to flaunt all your hard work and whatever you have gained so far. If you are one of those who do not like to flaunt and feel uncomfortable in bikinis then high-waist bikinis as well as tankinis are way more great options too. Until and unless you want to be a walking showpiece, make sure to wear Bikinis only in the pool/beach areas and not generally in public.

Sundresses: What is a vacation without a floral printed dress accessorized with a pair of Havaianas flip-flops and sunhat, grabbing brunch in a shack, or just sightseeing?

Maxi dresses: Be it any trance party at curlies or just hopping in a bar for a couple of good drinks, one can never go wrong with a tropical printed maxi dress. To look more attractive and feel comfortable going for a slide-slit maxi dress or an off-shoulder to spice things up.

Just keep one thing in mind, put your comfort above everything and you are all set to enjoy the amazing vibe of India’s most happening beach.
