Talk about versatile. The sarong is more than just a pretty towel substitute. Tie it around your waist for effortless glam, use it as a hair wrap or scarf, or simply place it on the hot sand for a quick place to sit. They’re super lightweight and easy to pack, so put a few in your carry on. If you’re looking for some creative ways to tie them, check out this video.

Rompers might be hard (but not impossible) to pull off at the office, but they’re the perfect beach attire for your next getaway. From the music fest to the pool or the beach, rompers are the easiest and most stylish outfit you’ll pull out of your bag all vacay long. Just add sunnies and sandals and you’re off.

We’re all about ease around here, and it doesn’t get any easier than this. Don’t forget that your one-piece suit can double as a chic bodysuit. For day, add your jean cut-offs. After hours, pair it with a flowy maxi skirt, statement necklace, and platform sandals for the perfect beach party outfit.
White Linen Dress

Our favorite blank canvas. Clean, fresh, and modern, the white linen beach dress is your vacay BFF. Dress it down for day with statement shades and flat sandals or flip-flops. Dress it up for evening with bold jewelry and heels. Wrinkle trick: If you don’t have a steamer, just hang it in the bathroom while you take a shower.
Crop Top and High-Waisted Shorts

We’re the first ones to admit that we’re afraid of crop tops. BUT, if you pair it with something high-waisted, it’s easier to pull off than you think. Look for crop tops that just show a sliver of skin. Cropped tees, halter tops, and ruffle details are things to search for. And remember, self-confidence is the best outfit, rock it and own it.

Okay, they’re easy to pack, they’re a cinch to dress up or down, and they’re super forgiving. Is there anything not to love about T-shirt dresses? Choose one (or a few) in a bold color or nautical stripe. And when you get back to chilly weather, wear them with a simple pair of leggings underneath.

Our obsession for caftans runs deep. Just looking at them in our closets relieves stress and inspires sunny daydreams. The key with caftans is to go with something that’s slightly out of your comfort zone. Go wild with a fun Ikat print or statement color. Remember, you’re on vacation!
