A trip to Cuba is filled with vibrance, culture and inspiration – much like our SS18 collection which is inspired by the myriad colours and sizzling sights of Old Havana and the sparkling sands of tropical beaches. So, to make packing a breeze, we’ve selected some of our favourite pieces that will dazzle just as much as the stunning scenery on this tiny yet vivid Caribbean island.

City Sightseeing:

There’s no better place to watch the sights and sounds of South American life than the sizzling streets of Cuba. Crumbling colonial architecture, classic cars and Latin American ladies sporting ruffled dresses – this is a city break with some serious style.

Walk the cobbled streets of Cuba’s Old Havana in our elegant Pippa Dress, available in an abstract print that celebrates the warm colours and artistic flavours of Cuba’s capital city.

The pretty sweetheart neckline and fitted bodice makes it a great piece for sipping a coffee in Plaza de Armas – a lush colonial-style courtyard dotted with tiny cafés and tropical plants. Add a pair of dramatic cat-eye sunglasses and you’ve got yourself the perfect outfit for a spot of prime people watching. emilyandfin-pippadress-oldtownhavana   Source: World Kentucky  

Sun, Sea and Sand:

If it’s a beach break you’re after, the white sands and turquoise seas of Cuba are hard to beat. From the luxury resorts of Varadero to the coral reefs and pink flamingoes of Cayo Coco, this South American island certainly isn’t short on places to park a sun lounger.

When packing for a beach trip, the cotton sundress is second only to a great bikini, and our Lulu Dress in Fruit Salad is the perfect choice. Featuring a contemporary tropical fruit print and feminine double collar and cap sleeves, this little cotton sundress will look great paired with strappy flats, a good book in one hand and a coconut in the other.   emilyandfin-anniedress-fruitsalad Source: Rough Guides

Cocktails and Dancing:

Going on holiday is all about letting your hair down, which as we all know includes a cocktail or two!

Choose from the nightclubs of Vedado to the sparkling cabarets of Miramar and Playa, or the traditional tango houses of La Habana Vieja, where rum, lime and ice fuels the party till the early hours and dancing in the street is a nightly occurrence.

To make sure you’ve packed for dancing, our Anna Jumpsuit in Cuban Cocktails gives a girl plenty of room to move, as well as an individual look that will surely become a hot talking point, or with its full pleated skirt, the Enid Dress in Blazing Blooms will have you twirling and whirling to the sound of rumba beats – so don’t forget your favourite pair of “comfy but glam” heels!
