10 Essentials for an Excellent Spring Break

  • A Coverup

    Ideally it'll make you feel cute, but it won't be so sexy or see-through that people mistake you for a watergoing prostitute. "Gauze tunic":, $44
  • Serious Sunscreen

    Although aerosol sunscreen can leave a filmy residue, the easy application means you'll use it more often.

  • Versatile Sandals

    Wear them during the day to the beach, or at night to a dinner on the beach.

  • A Carry-it-All Tote

    Pick a tote in fabric so that when you return you can toss it right in the wash. This one's cute enough to triple as a beach tote, a carry-on, and a travel purse. "Fabric tote":, $49
  • An Everyday Dress

    Wear it with flip-flops to do shopping or sight-seeing, and it can also be a coverup in a pinch. Throw on your favorite pair of wedged espadrilles for a night out on the town.

  • Summery Flats

    If your trip involves walking, you'll need shoes more substantial than flip-flops. These espadrilles will protect your feet.

  • Luminizing Bronzer

    Even if you don't wear it in your regular life, you'll feel inspired to be beachier once you feel that sun.

  • A Breezy Scarf

    Wear it to tie back your hair or to keep the sun off your neck. (Or tie essentials like your wallet and keys into a bindle and use it as a makeshift wallet.)

  • A Cute Suit

    During the summer you'll feel sweaty and bedraggled, but now is when you can rock a suit and feel great in it. Buy a new one for a mid-winter trip and choose a dark color or jewel tone to flatter pale skin.

  • Sweet Sunglasses

    Picture yourself in a convertible with the top down, applying a come-hither lipstick. These are the glasses you're wearing, right?
