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.
Madewell Paddleboard Mini Cover-Up in Moroccan Mix ($78)
Giuseppe Zanotti Nuorock Embellished Leather Sandals ($495)
Bring along some aviators or wayfarers to protect your pretty peepers. These timeless, trend-less accessories will make you look cool from airplane to lounge chair. Blacks, silvers, golds and tortoise shells work with just about swimsuit or caftan.
You're all set for the beach vacation of your stylish dreams!
