You should pack me. I'm a hairstylist so you would always look good on formal night. On the serious side I have never been on a World Cruise. But I did found this article to assist you.
Here is part of the article on clothing.

Travelers interested in a luxury world cruise should not pack a new outfit for each day. To make your wardrobe appear fresh without overdoing it, pack about ten tops and bottoms that can be mixed and matched, and bring accent pieces such as scarves and attention getting shoes to spice up your looks. You will be doing a lot of walking, so bring at least 20 pairs of socks. You should also bring about five pairs of shoes, three which are comfortable and made for walking. Chances are your boat will have a swimming pool, so make sure you include your swimsuit. A windbreaker and a coat are a must, so that no matter how mild or cold the weather is, you are prepared. You should also be prepared for formal nights, and bring about three formal outfits.
One part age; three parts liquor!

Pack everything you know you will need. Then go around your whole house again looking for things you might need.

For such a long cruise if you think you might need it a little bit, you should bring it.

It is not like a 7 day cruise, if you forget something, in 7 days you can get it.

But for 114 days thats a long time to wait if you need something.

You can buy a few articles of clothing at your ports. Like some t-shirts. sweatshirts, im sure you will run across anything you need during it. Which Ship are you going on? And where do you start your cruise? Just curious, I cant imagine being on a ship for that length of time,it blows my mind...s0s
