Planning that weekend beach spring break get away, and not sure what to pack? Here’s our list of must haves and favs, along with some tips on how to pull it all together.
Swim suit and cover up. Check! Whether one piece or two piece, fit and comfort are key! One of the big trends is mixing and matching. Take a print top and work it back to a solid bottom. Floral and geometric prints are major. This season, it’s all in the details: crochet, ruffle flounces, cross stitching in contrasting colors, lattice backs and fronts – these are just a few of the trends you’ll see.
Cute tops and shorts. Check! For those off-the-beach activities, consider the newest trend in tops – options with shoulder revealing details and silhouettes. Work them back to a short with destruction and a frayed or cuffed hem and you’ll be spot on!
Beach towel. Check! Whether a solid or a print, bright colors are the way to go!
Shades. Check! Choose a nude or rose gold frame to complete that trend-right look!
Sun hat and sunscreen with SPF. Check! Natural color with large brim for the hat, SPF of 30 or greater for the sunscreen.
Sandals or bright colored converse. Check! Whether natural, metallic or black, the newest trend in sandals are those global influences: multi color pom pons, fringe tassels, beading and stones, braiding, embroidery, laser cut outs and lace-up gladiator or thong styles. Work a bright or printed Converse back to those off-the-beach looks.
Beach tote. Check! Bold and bright graphics all the way!
For the evening, pair one of your shoulder revealing tops back to a skinny jean and finish it off with a caged stacked heel – one with those global details mentioned above. Try a colored jean option for a fresh take on denim.
Be safe, have fun and enjoy that spring break – you’ve earned it!!
