Planning a beach vacation with your girlies? What better than Goa to work on that peachy tan and soak in some sun?
If you’re wondering what to pack for your vacation to Goa, you have come to the right place. It can be daunting to decide what to take if like me, you have a hundred options to choose from. Will that gorgeous black dress look out of place in Goa? And will those blood red pumps make odd bedfellows with the beach? These are questions that you must ask yourself if you want to avoid being the outlandish alien while your friends make dinner conversations out of your fashion faux pas.
Here are our recommendations for what to wear on your holiday to Goa :

Following are our suggestions for accessorizing your clothes.
No trip to Goa will be complete without a funky pair of sunglasses. Go bold with your sunglasses and transform into an instant diva.
Featured here are sandals from Jimmy Choo, Rahul Arora and Red Janota. These will add those grateful inches and are great to wear on dresses and swim suits.
These pieces from Nitya Arora will glamorize even the most simple outfit. Don't go overboard though ; if you're opting for chunky earrings, stay away from bold necklaces.
We love these earrings from Outhouse. They're very gladiator-esque and transform you into an instant goddess!
