WHAT TO WEAR:

  • When in St Barths… All white everything, broderie anglasie, pastels, lace, embodied, linen shirting, stripes and red, white & blue of course like this one here

  • Workout and active attire for yoga, water sports or hiking…
  • Sophisticated hats, bags & accessories to explore the numerous beach side restaurants and Gustavia boutiques!
  • Flat shoes & sandals for day and night… cute sneakers like these are even better as there are lots of hills!
