Beach Dresses for Women in India

Last week one of my friends was travelling to Goa and I was helping her pack her bags for the same. She wanted to look trendy and stylish and still wanted to pack light so that she can buy and get some goodies from there without paying for extra luggage. So I thought of writing a blog on beach dresses for women in India.

5. Wide leg/Harem Pants

Loose fitted trousers with some cool strappy or a racerback top are best in a hot humid climate. They are perfect day look, add a shrug/shirt over it if you want to secure yourself fully from the sun. You can buy them online also you can find them here.

6. Playsuits

Playsuits are basically a type of jumpsuit in which the top is attached with shorts they look super cute and are very comfortable, are good options for beach coz you don’t have to worry about the wind. They are cool casual wear till the time you don’t have to go in the water because changing them or going for nature’s call can be a bit of a problem.
I really like the below-mentioned playsuit is from Mango, it’s fun and fresh but you can find a few more options here.

Do’s and Don’t for your beach Vacation


  • Carry light and quick to dry cloths.

    Carry clothes made of soft cotton, polyester, etc they light in weight and easy to clean. Even if they get drenched in the beach or pool they will dry quickly.

  • Carry light Color Clothes.

    Carry garments inner and outer with light colours. Light colours reflect light and do not absorb heat, which is better for your skin.

  • Carry a good sunscreen.

    Do remember to carry a good sunscreen with you. The sun on the beach is harsh and they are
    chances that you will get tanned or get a sunburn.

  • Carry a nice Tote bag or Backpacks.

    I recommend carrying a bag big enough to keep all your stuff safe and with you.

  • Carry all basic accessories.

    Carry a few accessories that keep you safe from the Sun, like a 100% UV protected sunglasses, a nice soft cotton scarf, a hat or a cap if needed.



  • Thick fabrics are strictly NO NO

    Don’t carry fabrics like corduroy or denim if not need. They are heavy to carry and even takes time to dry.

  • Real jewellery.

    Avoid wearing real gold or diamond jewellery on the beach. There are chances that it might get stolen or lost. It’s always better safe than sorry.

  • Avoid dark colours.

    As discussed above, it’s always better to wear light colour inner and outerwear on hot and humid places.

  • Avoid Jumpsuits.

    It’s better if you avoid full-length jumpsuits on the beach because the sand can cause itchiness, but the final decision is yours, anything looks good if you are comfortable in it.

  • Avoid Sports shoes/Sneakers.

    You should never wear shoes/sneakers on the beach because they will get sand in them which you will never be able to get rid of fully.

There you have it, quick and easy tips for a stylish beach vacation. I hope this post of beach dresses for women in India has helped you determine what to wear on your trip so that you can enjoy the breeze, beach and sand and still look trendy in selfies!
