Spring break is here! If you’re headed to a beachy destination, remember it’s all about being practical and packing transitional pieces. I mean, let’s be smart and avoid the hassle where we can… like, at the airport. Keep that bag under 50 pounds and you’ll have money left over for the first round of tropical drinks. Cheers to that!
Below I’ve put together five style essentials to pack for your spring break trip:
Obviously, if you are headed for warmer weather, you’re bound to end up in the pool or ocean, right? This one-piece Karissa Suit by Beach Riot is gorgeous! You’ll turn heads as you swim over to the pool bar, and you can easily transition this suit into a bodysuit for a night out. Just throw on some shorts or some high-waisted skinnies and you’ve got yourself a sexy brand-new look! [photo by revolve.com]
Slides are those shoes that you can wear to the beach, out for lunch and can pair with a fun night outfit. Transition these shoes with pretty much any outfit you bring. Slides are so much better than flip flops. They have so much more style and instantly up your OOTD/N game! I’m loving these neutral Judah Slides by Raye. [photo by revolve.com]
Athleisure is all the rage right now and so are high-waisted styles! When you put the two together, what a beautiful combination they make. I love waking up early and taking a walk on the beach before I bask in the warm sunshine all day. The Beyond Yoga Take Me Higher Leggings get your glow on early! Extra bonus – these are super comfy to travel in. [photo by East Coast Boho]
Sunglasses are a must when your days are occupied by the beach or pool. You can never have too many pairs, and right now, hexagonal mirrored lenses are what’s hot. The Ray-Ban Hexagonal Flat Lens Glasses are a super fun spin on the classic aviator. [photo by urbanoutfitters.com]
A cute two piece set will have you looking just like a beach babe. This Sunday Morning Set by Free People has so many perfect features. The slit on the skirt allows you to show off that sun kissed skin, it is high-waisted (always a plus!), and the top scoops down just enough for a sexy effect. The best part? You can mix and match the pieces to create different outfits on your trip. Opt for a white bodysuit instead of this top or swap out the skirt for a pair of jeans. [photo by freepeople.com]
