The pristine beaches, the azure blue waters and what sartorial choices! Goa is by far one of the most popular destinations for people looking for a relaxing weekend. Good food, coupled with extremely cheap beer and amazing flea markets is what makes Goa a shopper and a fashionista’s heaven.
Goa has also been the home of many fashion designers, especially Wendell Rodericks, the veteran designer who firmly believes that Goa is actually the cradle of Indo-Western style! Goa’s distinct and naturally hip fashion is an inspiration all over the world. Though locals carry off this style with élan, even tourists morph their style into something very familiar as soon as they step into the Goa scene.
Goa is a fashion haven, and some of the most distinct piece of fashion can be seen in the meandering aisles and streets of this sartorial heaven. Let’s peek into some of the outfits that only a Goan will carry off in style.
Florals are a thing with every Goan woman! Floral dresses are a Boho Goan woman’s Holy Grail. Sundresses with pretty hats and often beach waves make it perfect attire. You will see most Goan women sporting floral dresses in many different shades and hues.
