Silk.. My fabric of choice for any holiday destination where the temperatures soar.
I packed this gorgeous, off the shoulder silk dress by Yvonne Bennetti for my trip to Milaidhoo in The Maldives and it proved to be an excellent addition to my Resort Wear travel wardrobe. Apart from being lightweight this silk maxi drapes, floats and caresses the skin in a luxurious and very feminine way. What’s not to love about it!
Dressed up or down this dress also ticks my ‘versatile clothing’ travel box. Admittedly my penchant is to dress up so I feel the urge to mention that slides are NOT my go to for an elegant stroll to pre-dinner cocktails but that’s how it rolls at Milaidhoo. Heels don’t cut the mustard because the paths are sandy and so is the bar. Lets be honest, there’s nothing more unglamorous than trying to drive heels on the sand! However it does rate highly on the entertainment front.
