Heading out for a fun beach getaway this summer? We’ve rounded up some of our must-have fashion items to pack into your carry-on!
The B.Side Swimwear
Save room in your suitcase without sacrificing style. The B-Side Swimwear gives you one top that ties up to 10 different ways, allowing you to have a different look each day of vacation. Be prepared for that game of beach volleyball, a little kayaking, or just for that much needed seaside cocktail. Pick from the two different styles: a more traditional cut in The Astor or the bandeau option in The Monroe ($68 each) then pick from two reversible color options (blue and white, pink and black, or my personal Jersey Girl favorite, yellow and leopard). Check out the amazing ways the suit can be worn on the B.Side’s Instagram!
If you’re more of a one-piece gal you must check out Miraclesuit’s Rialto One-Piece ($174). The supportive top helps to keep the girls in check during any activity, while the ruching slims your mid-section and hides any areas you may feel insecure about. Other Miraclesuit styles are amazing as well, including the Magic Suit by Miraclesuit Yvonne Halter One-Piece ($172). This suit also features the strategically placed ruching but has a super-sexy plunging neckline and a some-what tunic bottom that flatters your bottom half.
Eugenia Kim Beach Hat
If you’re going to splurge on one item this summer, let this Do Not Disturb Hat from designer Eugenia Kim be it! It’s sassy, sun-safe, and pretty much says it all! $440; shop.nordstrom.com
Swell Clemente Beach Hat
If you’d rather protect your bank account while you protect your skin from the sun’s rays check out this fashionable hat option from Swell. The Clemente Beach Hat ($29.45) comes in black and white stripe or natural and white and the over-sized brim helps keep your face and even your shoulders out of the sun!
Sand by Saya
These luxury handmade flip-flops are all you need to get tons of compliments at the beach (or really anywhere you go in them). I have been wearing the West Village Flat Sandal in pink ($69) for every flip-flop worthy occasion and they always steal the show! The colorful stones, crystals, and beads at the center instantly dress up your outfit and the sandals are unbelievably comfortable.
Forever21 – Cover-ups
I’m not someone who likes to spend an arm and a leg on my cover-up. It’s going to get wet, sandy, and it serves one purpose. So I always look to places like Forever21 for my beachwear. You can get super trendy cover-ups for the fraction of the price of the department stores. I love these three looks above. A southwestern-style kimono ($19.90) is perfect for a day by the beach or pool and you can even wear it with shorts and a tank for an effortless night out look. This two-slit tie-dye cover-up skirt ($22.90) is a great option for when you’re ready to take a sunset stroll down the seaside. And for those of your that want a cover-up that will take you from the sand to the sangria – this twist-front, tropical-print dolman top ($29.90) is everything!
Vix Stripe Straw Bag
A fashionable woven beach bag is just what you need to complete you beach getaway look. Effortless and efficient, this bag from Vix will hold all of your essentials (sunscreen, sunglasses, etc.) and best of all… it’s on sale! $74; vixpaulahermanny.com
