Whether you’re sailing on a weekend getaway or longer adventure, you want to pack the right clothing for each member of the family. Take a look at our picks for everything that your little fashionista will need to cruise in style from travel day to formal night, and everything in between. 

Fashionable Cruise Wear for Girls

This story is brought to you in partnership with Tea Collection.

Travel Day Outfits for Girls

You’ll love the cheerful cruise wear for girls from Tea Collection. I recommend wearing something loose, lightweight and layered for the plane or drive.

My daughter selected this nautical navy and white cotton Stripe Trapeze Dress and Bubble Gum Capri Leggings. This outfit combines comfort and style. Plus, this dress makes a great investment at it can transform into a top as girls grow. Most cruises deliver your baggage within a few hours of embarking so pack a swimsuit in your carry on and the dress can double as a cover-up.

Pool and Beach Day Picks

This year marks Tea Collection’s largest swim collection, with suits ranging from 3 months to 12 years. Their signature Tea prints are available in several colors and styles including mix-and-match tops, bottoms and rash guards. Now that my daughter is more into swimming than splashing, she selected the chic one-piece Lychee Halter swimsuit. I love the gorgeous pattern, adjustable neck, fully lined styling and UPF 40 sun protection. For more sun coverage, pair it with the matching rash guard or pretty coral Mollymook Embroidered Coverup. Take a look at additional darling Tea Collection swimwear options for girls.

Excursion Day Cruise Wear for Girls

For sightseeing, this fun Airlie Beach Colorblock Dress goes from day to night. The colorblock design and the asymmetrical pattern are inspired by rash guards and wet suits worn by Australian surfers. In addition to the cute design, my daughter liked the back zipper, which made it easy to get on and off. Best of all, it has side pockets that are perfect for saving vacation trinkets. For chilly days, pair it with the Tea Collection’s Capri Leggings and a sweater.

Kids Club Clothing for Girls

My daughter has been on a few cruises and she loves spending time in the kids clubs. From organized crafts to princess parties, games and play areas, time in the kids club requires a super comfortable outfit. Rompers are all the rage for summer. This Opera House Smocked Romper, inspired by the Sydney Opera House, scores big points for cuteness and comfort. The cotton jersey makes it easy to pull on and off. Plus, the criss-cross shoulder straps are perfect for on-the-go girls. Available in size 2-12, this romper is a great pick as cruise wear for girls or at home.

Formal Night Cruise Wear for Girls

Cruises typically feature one or more formal nights. Be sure to bring along a dress or two for your little girl. Tea Collection has all sorts of cute dresses to choose from. My daughter picked this Palm Flutter Dress, which is inspired by the monsoon rainforest in Kakadu National Park in Australia’s Northern Territory. The bold cotton print is gorgeous and the dot trim on the ruffled sleeves adds a feminine flair. If you’re looking to take some tropical family photos, this will look great with a palm tree backdrop. And, if you like matching family looks, there is a coordinating Palm Buttoned Shirt for boys.

  18. Thank you for sharing this interesting topic with your readers. What to wear while out on the water is probably not something that most people pay a lot of attention to, however, it can make or break a trip, especially if you are in a humid climate. In addition, sometimes the weather can take a crazy twist out of nowhere. Rain, cold, and wind are not welcome but can be a regular thing when out on the ocean. If you are booking a party boat cruise with your closest family and friends, make sure you check out the forecasted weather and take some advice from this little girl here. Wear light, flowy outfits that will feel comfortable in many different types of weather. This way your little ones won’t be complaining; rather they will be enjoying their trip!
