Kikois are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing which should not be left behind as you travel for your beach vacations!
On today’s blog post, I’m sharing with you 3 mind blowing reasons as to why you should always carry a Kikoi on a Beach Vacation.
Hey and welcome to Authentically Ritah!
Just incase you are new here, this is a Fashion and Style blog. I delight in sharing Fashion Tips, Try on hauls & basically Style inspiration.
First things first! What is a Kikoi?
A kikoi is a large piece of cloth usually cotton. It is actually considered a part of Swahili culture in Kenya. Kikois are usually rectangular in shape. I find bright colored or patterned pieces perfect for the beach.
One amazing thing about Kikois is that they do not take much space while packing so you can easily travel with them. I pack roughly 2 to 3 pieces while traveling. They are also easy to find and relatively affordable. You can easily get them at Maasai Market while in Nairobi.
To prove how versatile Kikois are, without futher adieu here are 3 reasons why you should always carry them for your beach vacays:
- Perfect Beach Towels
Instead of those bulky towels to the beach, which take up much space, you can opt for a Kikoi! They dry quickly and perfect to lie on while on the beach bed.
2. They double as comfy picnic rugs
Sitting on the ground to enjoy lunch/drinks? Roll out your Kikoi and make the whole affair a bit more interesting! They are perfect as picnic blankets.
3. They are perfect Beach Cover Ups
Just incase you are wearing a bikini or bathing suit and want to go probably to the toilets or restaurant, you can cover up yourself with the Kikoi.
So there are 3 reasons why you should always take a Kikoy while travelling for a Beach Vacation! If you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up. Don’t also forget to subscribe for this and more!
