How to Pack Luxuriously Light for Tahiti

Even the most diligent fashionista will travel light when headed to Tahiti, as the ensembles required – while still luxurious – are lightweight and certainly don’t take up space.

The yachting life will have taught the conscious fashionista that a range of swimsuit styles should be included in her luggage to achieve the most flawless tan. We’ve made a few suggestions that will tick the boxes for different body types and sun situations.

Sun smart accessories including a Venezuelan hand woven hat and a gorgeous cover up from Seafolly have also made the cut for this island getaway.

The striking aqua bandeau-style bikini from Seafolly Australia is everything you need for a vacation to tropical waters. While Seafolly is known for its fresh designs, the brand also seems to understand that girls need options when it comes to tan lines. Mixing up your swimsuit collection with different styles allows you to obtain an even golden tan – seems like they’ve thought of everything.

Add some South American spice to your look with a bespoke sunhat from designer Yosuzi. The unique creations are painstakingly handwoven by Venezuelan artisans in the Guajira desert. Authentic and casually stylish, we adore the Kalinda which is brightened with colorful band that will inspire your matching wardrobe choices.

We’re still huge fans of the one-piece swimsuit trend – especially when we find pieces as sophisticated as the Cross Back Parallels swimsuit from Jets. This swimsuit flatters your curves and shows flair with sheer panels and a network of straps across the back. The design gives a high-fashion vibe to what is essentially the most stylish one-piece a woman could own.

There’s always room for a little girly glam in our yachting suitcase, and a Tahiti-bound travelling wardrobe is no exception. The gorgeous Sicily Scales Ripple Bikini from VIX’s new collection conjures up images of mermaids with its a delicate design and the bold yellow hue will stand out beautifully against the turquoise waters.

Every fashionista headed for Tahiti needs a luxuriously soft and light cover up to occasionally hide from the sun, and to slip into when headed to the bar for a refreshment. The Island Vibe dress is the perfect piece that won’t take up space in your suitcase, but packs a whole lot of punch when it comes to looking fresh while poolside. The open shoulders show off your golden tan, and the waist nips in, giving shape to your relaxed island look.

The colorful jewel adorned sandals from Fendi are the ultimate when it comes to resort wear. Crafted from the softest leather to cushion your strut, these sandals are an instantly recognizable talking piece. Slip them on with a simple black sundress to let the colors vibe for themselves, or let them peek out from under a maxi dress as a glittering surprise.
