The Style Traveller Bonnie Rakhit what to wear in CubaCuba – Havana Fashion Special

Where? Havana, Cuba

When? June 2016

Why? On my recent trip to Cuba I did a little photo shoot with some of my favourite clothing brands. I knew the streets of Havana would be a veritable gift of decadent, crumbling colonial buildings providing the perfect back drop for a fashion shoot.

The colourful streets of Havana provide the perfect back drop for fashion shoots. When it comes to what to pack for a holiday, the sartorial rules in Havana are pretty relaxed. It gets quite humid during the day so breathable, natural fabrics which are comfortable are the best. But practical needn’t mean boring, pick bright bold colours to stand out against the rainbow hued buildings.

Eye wear is key, channel 50’s wayfarer and 60’s cats eye styles to look on trend and fit in with the locals. In the shoe stakes, flat or wedge heels are best as the streets are cobbled and uneven. You’ll be walking around a lot as cars don’t come into the central areas so make sure you’re comfortable.

And finally, Havana is one of the most fun, vibrant and seductive cities I have been to, so after dark don’t be afraid to get your sexy outfits on, grab a mojito and samba the night away!
