Behind the Design: St. Barts Collection

We’re all dreaming of a vacation, so why not dress like it? Our new St. Barts Collection is inspired by the bright colors found in the architecture and plants on the island. The color palette mixes a range of blues and pinks for an eye-catching look. Classic navy stripes, geometric patterns and embroidered details make this collection the life of every party. As always, our styles are made with luxurious UPF 50+ fabrics. The breathable and comfortable beachwear makes staying sun safe a breeze. 

This dreamy beachwear is designed for vacay AND every day. For your next staycation, pack these versatile dresses to wear as cover ups with sun protective swimwear. If you’re heading out to dinner, our cover ups can double as dresses. Just add some wedges or fun gold sandals!

Our fabric is not only sun protective, but also wrinkle resistant. Great for packing or slipping on to run out the door for some errands. 

For everyday wear, here are some style tips to wear these pieces during cooler months. Our go-to is always a jean jacket! It keeps you warm and provides sun protection. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, a dark, long-sleeved denim shirt can provide a UPF of around 1,700 = complete sun protection. 

Flowy and fun, our St. Barts Sleeveless Tiered Maxi Dress helps keep your legs protected from the sun while staying chic. We are crushing over the details of this dress! There is fringe along the neckline and tier seams of the dress to give it more dimension. 

We can never resist some pom poms! The pom pom tassel tie on the back makes this dress a showstopper. You can find some more of these playful details on the St. Barts Tassel Tunic Dress. 

We are now offering a new lightweight crepe material on some of our Resort 2020 styles in St. Barts and Aruba Blues Collections. This fabric is matte, woven, lightweight and, of course, UPF 50+. The flowy material is perfect for keeping cool in warmer climates, and you can layer it with heavier pieces during cooler months. 

The St. Barts Sleeveless Tunic Dress is made from this new breathable crepe material and features fringe details and embroidery. Plus, it has pockets! Two functional pockets allow you to easily store your keys, phone, cards or mask – all the 2020 necessities. Add on a white sweater or jean jacket to stay warmer during the fall season. 

Our White Tie Wrap Top and Navy Tie Wrap Top can double as a rashguard for the beach, top for lunch or even an everyday layering piece. Tie for defining look or leave unraveled to wear as a cardigan. 

Of course, we had to highlight our new skirt design, the St. Barts Embroidered Wrap Skirt. This is a true wrap skirt, meaning you get to decide how tight to make it and where it sits on your body. This way you can have the most flattering fit for you! Pair this skirt with a white shirt or match the beautiful embroidered details for a complete look. 

If you’re loving this print, we have some more good news to brighten your day. More styles & inventory will be added to this collection soon – including styles the whole family can enjoy!
