Preparing The Trip: Barbados Dress
- Bring clothes for the tropics.
- Light cotton dresses and light jackets for formal wear.
- Casual slacks and lightweight sports for the times when you are not in a bathing suit.
- Beachwear should also include sunglasses, sunblock and beach footwear.
While Barbados is a fun holiday island, there are dress codes, and because of 300 years of conservative British heritage, formal attire is still seen at times other than weddings and funerals. Business men wear a shirt and tie and sometimes a jacket. Women wear smart dresses.
