- The holiday season may be upon us, but tropical style has never been hotter, says CHRISTA D’SOUZA
There are a few things I have never done in my life. They include sleeping a whole night under the stars and watching the horror film The Ring. (You have? Goodness me, you’re brave). Another is eating Christmas turkey on the beach. Except, guess what? Come December 25, that is exactly what I will be doing. A tan PLUS presents? How can it get any better? The only slight worry I have is on the closet front. I am so used to living in black and navy until about April (and sometimes even after then), that it is hard to get my head around being summery in winter. Cruise 2014 is all about riotous tropical prints
COME RAIN OR SHINE
Hothouse patterns are de rigueur for the season - whatever the weatherCredits
