As we turn the corner on winter (don’t you hear the birds chirping already?) and you begin daydreaming of blue skies and warm sand for spring break, here are your absolute must-haves for a week of surf, sand and smart styling.
Go day to night with this Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Caftan Dress ($368). This scoop-neck print silk dress with kimono sleeves is effortlessly versatile.
Winter hibernation brought on more than a few pounds? Nip in that belly and those hips with Spanx’s High Style Bandeau Tankini ($128). The playful ruffle detailing flatters your tummy and enhances the bustline with no awkward lumps and bumps.
iPads, mp3 players, smart phones, towels and sunglasses – all important beach mainstays. Tote (and stow) them away in style with Angela Adams’ for J. Crew Sea Bags ($198) made from water-resistant recycled sails. The sweet hemp handles are stylish (and comfy) enough to carry even through a night of seaside margaritas.
Shun away from any terrycloth towel that isn’t as chic as the rest of your wardrobe. Wrap yourself in Miss Blumarine’s Beach Towel ($69) lined-interior, fringed cozy goodness with diamante logo detailing.
Have your entire wardrobe at your fingertips with Chick on the Go ($199). Comprised of a cosmetic-sized case prepacked with five pieces of clothing and two accessories, these garments coordinate together to create an array of different combinations! It’s an especially great carry-on if you’ve ever been subjected to luggage delays.5
