Ahhhhh. Sun, sand and surf. Is there anything better than a beach vacay to rest and recharge? Don't let your wardrobe stress you out … you’ll need clothes that will keep you looking chic while feeling the heat.
Think simple and laid-back staples when the temperature rises. Leave the denim shorts to the kids and pack a few pairs of classic cotton or linen shorts in a length you’re comfortable with. JCrew and Banana Republic make great shorts in a variety of solids and patterns. We are a fan of white jeans (since the season is so short!) so toss a pair in your bag for after the beach when its G&T time. Paired with a chic sweatshirt or lightweight sweater and flat sandals, it's the perfect post-beach look.
One item that will never lead you astray is the classic white shirt. In cotton or linen, a slightly oversized men’s style with rolled up sleeves works over a bathing suit, with shorts, jeans or slim track pants. Style your shirt with layered necklaces or a scarf in your hair and you’ll create your unique summer look.
For days that you’re not beaching, a fun sundress is the perfect look for moseying in town. Whether maxi, strapless, sleeveless or mini, have fun with prints and patterns to add some bohemian spirit to your vacay style. Pair your dress with a denim jacket (no holes please!) for when the sun goes down, and summer kicks for easy walking through town. Don't forget your sunscreen and sunnies; throw them into an oversized tote bag and you’re all set for town.
Bikinis are fun, but the one-piece is having its moment. If you feel prefer to be more covered up, now is the time to invest. Spend some time trying on several styles and we promise you’ll find your perfect piece. In classic black, it will be the swimsuit you’ll always return to.
