Going to the beach is such a fun and relaxing treat, but deciding what to pack is a whole different story! It is so easy to overpack and bring clothes that you won’t even have the chance to wear. So today, we thought we’d share five staples that you could wear multiple ways, without having to pack your entire closet.
1. A Versatile White Top
A balloon sleeve top is the perfect beach vacation essential! It is more dressy than your classic white tee, and it’s not as stuffy as a traditional long sleeve shirt. We love this one from Sam and Lavi. It goes with with any pair of shorts, pants, jeans, or skirt that you take along. Plus, it has grey, tortoise shell buttons. This light and flowy top will feel so good on your skin after a long day in the sun!
2. A Statement Tunic
This fiery red tunic from Show Me Your Mumu is more than just a fun top to wear. It can actually double as a bathing suit cover up! You can wear it during a night out or beachside. The bright pop of color makes such a statement, while the tassel detail on the hem gives it that little something extra.
3. Two-Toned Denim Shorts
Need to update your trusty pair of jean shorts? We are love this Andrea Short from Kut From The Kloth. They are a nice medium wash short, with a unique dark wash hem. And, they have that lightly distressed detail. These are great to wear if you just want to ease into that trend! Plus, they are a wearable length; not too long or short.
4. A Flowy Linen Dress
Linen is a wonderful material for the summer months; it is so light and airy. This linen number from Pinch is so fun and edgy while still being wearable. We love the cutout sleeves and the gathered V-Neck silhouette. Throw this dress on with your favorite shoes, and you have an entire outfit in a snap!
5. Comfy Lounge Pants
A pair of linen pants are essential to your wardrobe, no matter the season. They are more classy than sweatpants, without sacrificing comfort. This dark wash linen pant is from the brand It Is Well. You can pair it with just about any top that you own; these can be dressed up or down. The possibilities are endless!
