5 Star Resort clothing varies depending on where the resort is located but women dress in a very casual way today. Check on weather conditions for the time you plan to visit. Before you begin to pack list the activities you will be doing; tennis, golf, hiking, swimming, etc.? What you will be wearing for those activities will be what you put into your suitcase.
At breakfast and lunch women are casual in shorts, pants, maxi’s and beach cover ups over bathing suits. Swim suits and cover ups are worn pool side. Bring appropriate clothing for golf and tennis. Casual attire continues for dinner. A dress, skirt or pants with sandals is chic at 5 star resort restaurants. A hat or visor, sun glasses and sunscreen are must haves, plus a beach bag to carry things to the pool and / or beach. Keep in mind that you get hot and sweaty in hot humid weather so bring clothing that you can wash out and that will dry fast if you are visiting a warm climate. Check the resort website for their dress code or email them in advance if you are unsure of what to bring.

Is there a perfect summer handbag? I am planning to go shopping for a new bag.
A perfect summer handbag is a raffia bag. They are so chic in the summer. In a solid color neutral a raffia handbag can be worn with many different outfits and for many different occasions. Raffia bags come in a number of styles, sizes and colors. Solid color neutral bags can be a better investment since they can be worn with more outfits. Embellished and colored bags in general are more casual looking and / or limit what you can wear with them. Darker color bags, such as black or chocolate, look good with dark color outfits and look a little more dressy than light color bags. As far as styles go a handbag that you can wear over the shoulder, with handles and /or clutch are the most versatile. Choose a size bag that is in proportion to your size. Tip: smaller size bags look best in the evening.
