Hey Bold Queens,
While being in New York this summer ,I was asked on numerous occasions ” What to Wear To Crop Over Events in Barbados?” Crop Over in Barbados, is our most popular time for festivities, were we embrace our culture but also celebrate with family and friends.
During Crop Over time which begins in late May, a series of events and festivities happen.These events such as Cavalcades, Calypso Tents, Pan on de sand , Cooler, Boat and Breakfast all inclusive Parties ,attract both local and international patrons .
Of course when planning to attend one of these events , the first question that comes to mind is what should I wear and where should I wear it to ? Today I am here to help you with what to wear when attending Crop Over events in Barbados.
When attending any Crop Over event the number one requirement is to dance or “wuk up” ,as we refer to in our bajan slang and the number #1 wuk up attire is anything that is short or has a pants seam .This romper I’m wearing gives you comfort but is also very classy. It can be worn exactly like this to an all inclusive event such as Elevate, Bliss, UV or Beach House Breakfast Party.
However if you are not much of a heel lady and comfort is more your style you can also throw on a nice pair of flats and head on down to Pan Pun de Sand or to the Pic O de Crop Semi Finals.
During the Crop Over season here in Barbados , you will find majority of the women wearing dresses to crop over events. They are easy to dress up or dress down with a pair of heels or sneakers. This dress I am wearing is from Monif C Plus Sizes.
All White Outfits
The Summer time is all about the white parties and the Crop Over Season in Barbados can’t pass by without attending at least one or two of these. These two outfit pieces from Monif C Plus Sizes are perfect for those who are headed to the Jalapeno All White Cruise or the High Tea All White Party.
Now , there is no denying we couldn’t finish off the Crop Over Event Season without wearing a swim piece. Our Costumes that we wear on Kadooment Monday are basically replicas of such.What I love about this swim piece is that it can be worn to a cooler event with a pants , skirt or cover up to a Roast , Limerz, Booze or UV cruise.
