It’s important to stick to a color scheme so you can mix and match your pieces. This way you don’t end up packing your entire wardrobe. Keep in mind, depending on where you’re headed it may be a good idea to bring a jean jacket, lightweight sweater or sweatshirt with you.

Swimwear – You’ll want to pack at least 2-3 swimsuits. Like clothing, try to mix and match to get the most use out of your swimwear. Check out Aerie’s Real Good collection – made with REPREVE fibers from recycled plastic bottles! You’ll also want to add an extra layer of cuteness with their beach hats. Having a wetsuit bag is always a good idea, especially if you’re changing clothes on the go!
H&M has a variety of swim trunks for you to choose from!
Sunglasses – Polarized lenses block glare from light reflecting off the water. Therefore we chose to add Maui Jim’s to our list of essentials for anyone who is beach bound. We’ve also included Ray-Ban as they’re always classic. Both brands are available at Sunglass Hut.
Flip-flops – They’re perfect for the sandy beaches and they’re super comfortable! You can find inexpensive, yet really cute flip flops at Old Navy!
Sunscreen – it’s important to protect your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. Sephora has several options to choose from, but we listed our favorites below.
- Supergoop is vegan, cruelty-free, reef-safe, and gluten-free.
- COOLA is also vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and comes in recycled packaging.
- Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 is formulated WITHOUT parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
After Sun Treatment – If you didn’t use sunscreen, or forgot to reapply and now have a sunburn, you’ll need a little after-sun recovery. We’ve included our 2 favorite products that will soothe your burn, cool the skin, help to prevent peeling while adding some much-needed hydration back into your skin.
- Clinique’s After Sun Rescue Balm is available at Macy’s.
- KORRES Greek Yoghurt Calming + Cooling Gel is available at Sephora.
Water bottles –Stay hydrated and stay cool with CORKCICLE Tumblers and Canteens available at Francesca’s!
We hope everyone has tons of fun, but remember to be smart and stay safe during spring break!
