What should I pack for a beach vacation?

The best part of taking a beach vacation is the swiftness and simplicity of packing lightly. That being said, it's important to pack strategically and stylishly.




A Wide-Brimmed Hat

A panama-inspired hat will keep you from squinting and helps to tuck away your perfectly unruly hair.

The Perfect Caftan

Pick a loose and luxe version of this coverup that doubles as a beachside layer and a going-out-at-night dress. Pick a print that mixes and matches well with bikinis, towels, and totes, and looks appropriate with bare feet and can be elevated with a layer of ethnic necklaces.

Flat Metallic Sandals

A super flat, barely-there sandal with a hint of shine or sparkle will serve as your dressier shoe that adds easy elegance for nighttime dinner and drinks.

Barneys New York Addyson Sandal ($199)

A Chic Little Tote

Ditch your structured handbags and bring along a soft, cool tote. A brown woven version feels earthy, while a pop of colour or animal print adds a good dose of adventure.

Classic Shades

Bring along some aviators or wayfarers to protect your pretty peepers. These timeless, trend-less accessories will make you look cool from aeroplane to lounge chair. Blacks, silvers, golds and tortoise shells work with just about swimsuit or caftan.
