These pieces are perfect whether you want to lay on the beach sipping fruity drinks, sightsee in town, or dance the night away in the warm setting sun.
The most obvious, but most important, thing to pack for a beach vacation is swimwear. The hottest swimsuit trends currently are ruffles, off the shoulder, and animal print. However, a solid well-fitting bikini will always be a classic.
A perfect beach cover-up is comfortable, breezy, and stylish. Whether you choose a classic sarong, a sleek button-up, or wide-leg pants, these fashionable cover-ups elevate a beach look without being fussy.
A low-profile neutral sandal that’s easily dressed up or down is the best beach vacation shoe to pack. These shoes look great at the beach, pool, or out on the town.
You will want to protect that pretty face, as well as make it easier to see while enjoying your beach holiday. A classic straw hat will always work. Trending now are super cute beach visors. Packing a beach hat that has an open top works well if you prefer to wear your hair up.
Big enough to fit all your beach essentials AND stylish enough to wear off the beach as well, is the home run of the perfect beach bags below.
These dresses will have you Instagram ready in all your vacation snaps. Dress up or down for a fuss-free stylish beach holiday.
The ideal beach vacation outfit doesn’t get easier than throwing on a perfect pair of denim shorts. Style your jean shorts over your bathing suit with a kimono, or a graphic tee.
Style plus comfort is vital for great vacation looks. Graphic tees are one of the hottest trends of the summer, and one of the easiest things to pack and wear during a beach getaway.
