Heading to Bali and want to look like the effortlessly chic traveler that you are? Here are some unique, beautiful, and adorable outfit AND accessory ideas for anyone looking for inspiration!

We have also listed some links to items on Amazon under the “photo inspirations” in case you want to try to recreate the outfit yourself! We hope these are helpful for you. Choose outfits that work best for your own personal style and for the kind of activities you plan to do in Bali. If you find a piece or a link somewhere that you think would be a great addition to this list, please let us know!

This list features flowy dresses, bathing suits, rompers, and more that we love for the beach and walking around town. Keep in mind that tourists should wear clothes, not bathing suits, when walking around villages and towns in Bali, in order to be respectful to local customs 🙂


#1: Jean shorts + flowy cover-up

It’s hot in Bali so obviously shorts, skirts, dresses, or loose pants are ideal. As the sun goes down, and it’s time to dress for an evening in Bali, a floral or paisley sheer cardigan can dress up your outfit!

Floral print sheer chiffon loose kimono cardigan

Paisley cover-ups and shawls

Levi Strauss mid-rise shorts

Bright yellow tank tops


#2: Comfy floral dress modest enough for temple trips

Prepare to pose oh-so-cutely in many Instagrammable spots! And when you do, you’ll probably want to be wearing something memorable. A flowy and bright dress with longer sleeves will be both comfortable to wear in the heat and good for checking out temples, where people are expected to be more covered up.

Long-sleeve, full-length dress


#3: Floppy hat + bright-colored jumpsuit

We all us travelers die for a perfect jumpsuit! If you have space for jumpsuits, especially if you happen to find one with pockets, BRING THEM! Jumpsuits are the best for staying classy in the airports and planes, and are great for nights out.

Yellow jumpsuit

Retro black and white cat-eye glasses


#4: Long, bright beach cover-up

For the princess in many of us, a long and sheer beach cover-up is just the thing to make us feel luxurious on a trip to beautiful Bali. You don’t have to go with turquoise, but turquoise does have this fresh, beachy feel to it, doesn’t it?!

#5: Neutral mono-color floppy hat, dress, lightweight shawl + SMILE

Ok, so it doesn’t have to be all bright all the time. Monochromatic and neutrals are welcome too! As are fabulous floppy beach hats.

#6: Off-the-shoulder top + lightweight overalls

If you’re very into crop tops, it may be a good idea to err on the conservative side when walking around shops and restaurants– perhaps with a pair of overalls/jumpsuit in combination with your crop top!

#7: Brightly-colored jumpsuit = must-have travel outfit

Again, all hail the jumpsuit. That is all.

Pretty princessy off-the-shoulder dresses while surrounded by forest… it’s basically like living inside a beautifully-illustrated children’s book.

#9: Cool, white, flowy long-sleeve dress

Even if you’re not ever having a big traditional wedding, why not take this opportunity to parade around paradise in a long white dress?! Or if you’re already married, why not relive it? Run around in a light-weight long white dress and maybe people will think you’re getting married on the beach… maybe you’ll even get some free drinks!

Loose white maxi dress WITH POCKETS

#10: FLAT unique strappy sandals + vibrant cover-up

You don’t want to bring heels with you to Bali. They will just sit in your bag. It’s a casual destination. But you CAN jazz up your island footwear game if you want with some mid-calf strappy strappies.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Lace-up black mid-calf sandals (with a TINY wedge)

Floral print sheer chiffon loose kimono cardigan

#14: Cut-off jean shorts + black off-the-shoulder top

Jean shorts and a black or other neutral top are so easy and classic. If you’re stressed out at all about outfits to bring, don’t be! Just stick with your gut! What are you most comfortable in? What makes you feel good? Bring that.

Along with your “safe” swimsuit, bring another one for your more daring days!

Black floral one piece swimsuit

Pin-up high-waisted swimsuit


#17: FLAT metallic sandals + hat and floral dress

Why do metallic sandals make an outfit look slightly classier? If you want to be a beach bum but not fully commit, this is one way!

Gold metallic flats

Pink and white floral off-the-shoulder dress

Straw hat with black strap


#18: Funky one-piece bathing suit

Okay, so you don’t have to wear labels all over your bathing suit, but a funky design of some kind is welcome for your Bali vacay photos!

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Red and white one-piece bathing suit


#19: Dark floral long dress

We have established that you want FLOWY as the number one element for Bali dresses, because it’s HOT. Off-the-shoulder and flowery are great options too. Additionally, a dark dress can provide pretty contrast to the sand and water photo shoot that you are sure to have 🙂

Floral off-the-shoulder long-sleeved dress


#20: Cute basket purse + striped dress

Stripey and preppy sailor attire may help you stand out from the more hippie-pattern Bali crowd, if you’re into that sort of thing. A small and natural-materials purse is also useful to have for day trips (instead of or in addition to a day-pack for hiking trips).

#21: Light-pink beachy dress

A light pink (or any color!) halter dress is another great Bali dress option!

#22: White off-the-shoulder top + dark jean shorts

If you’re not super into dresses and jumpsuits, there are always the classic options, as mentioned above, of shorts and a cute top. Being comfortable in what you choose to bring is the number one priority in packing for your vacation!

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Off-the-shoulder white top


#23: Dark patterned and knotted top

With the prevalence of skin cancer, we can’t be too careful these days. Make sure to bring along sunscreen and a cute hat you can take with you to the beach and walking around town.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Off-the-shoulder black top


#24: Nude jumpsuit

I mean, can we just go ahead and establish a National Jumpsuit Day, everybody? Find a nude jumpsuit that matches your skin tone and rock it. One small note: Leave side boob on the beach! Respect the local culture 🙂

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Peachy jumpsuit


#25: Long and loose white dress

White flowy dresses were mentioned earlier, but here is MORE inspiration because it’s THAT good of an idea. White will keep you cool in the hot sun, it matches everything, and it’s not that often in life you can wear beachy white wedding-ish dress all day every day.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Flowy white embroidered dress

Bohemian drawstring dress


#26: Short red and blue floral dress

Short dresses are okay on the beach in Bali, but try to be respectful with a length that’s more to the knee or longer when walking around towns (and definitely religious areas such as temples). Also, think about the shoes that you’ll feel most comfortable in while sightseeing. It’s probably best to bring a pair of flip flops for the beach and a sturdier pair of shoes or sandals for walking around touristy places/going on light hikes, etc.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Red floral dress with sleeves


#27: Long navy, flowy dress

Yet more dress inspiration! The capped sleeves and long length make this dress good for all contexts: beach, village, going out at night in Bali, and temples.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Long navy dress


#28: White dress + cross body purse

Cool white options are also good in their shorter iterations! A small purse that you can bring with you in a neutral color is recommended for the beach, going to restaurants, for strolls… etc.!

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Rustic brown leather cross body bag

Short white long sleeve dress


#29: Simple black strappy top + sarong

Love this look for Bali because it’s relaxed, easy, and interchangeable with the many sarongs/scarves you’ll be sure to buy on your trip (if you also suffer from this kind of addiction). Also, it’s a very VACATION look that you don’t typical get to wear in everyday life.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Sarong wrap coverups


#30: Bright red romper + shades

Brightly colored rompers are almost as fun as brightly colored pant-jumpsuits. And probably more practical as beachwear.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Red ruffle romper (floral)


#31: Loose white top + shorts and shawl

This is simple and easy if you don’t always want to do the one-piece outfit option.

#32: Cozy long dress for the beach and temples

Has the word “cozy” been mentioned yet? Bring COZY clothes… dresses and outfits and materials that make you feel good. Remember that the weather will be hot and humid.

Create the look with similar items on Amazon:

Tropical jungle one piece swimsuit

Tropical leaf jumpsuit


#34: Headband, earrings + loose top and long skirt + FLAT metallic sandals

If your hair is going to be annoying to take care of in the Bali weather, consider bringing some headbands and headscarves. They’re cute and easy.

#35: Retro red bathing suit + hat and sunglasses

Would not say no to a vintage, red one-piece swimsuit and accessories. So much inspiration!

#36: Lacey pink off-the-shoulder dress

So lace may not be the ideal dress material for this weather, but if it’s breathable, comfortable, and off-the-shoulder, one MIGHT give it a chance in Bali.

#37: Comfy light-pink romper

Light-weight romper! No more questions please.
