What to Pack For a Beach Getaway
There’s nowhere better to enjoy summer than at the beach. The open skies, sandy beaches, and big ocean make a wonderful escape from your daily routine. And the warm weather coaxes us all into a lazy, summer haze. Time seems to always slow down by the beach, allowing visitors to move leisurely and to explore and dress comfortably.
Here’s what I recommend packing for your next beach getaway:
Since you’ll be headed for warmer weather, I’d recommend shorts and skirts. Perhaps a couple pairs of denim and linen shorts and a breezy skirt.
To show off your sun-kissed glow, I’d recommend packing a couple shoulder-baring tops like this off-the-shoulder one or this halter top. Don’t forget to protect your skin with this airy long-sleeve.
Dresses are perfect for the beach, as they’re easy to throw over swimsuits. I’d recommend a few casual dresses, as well as something like this that can easily be worn from day to night.
It’s always fun to see what new colors and patterns are featured each summer. A bikini is perfect for lounging under the sun, while a one-piece gives a little more security for an active beach outing.
If you have to wear shoes on your beach getaway, I’d recommend sticking to sandals. This festive pair and these summery espadrilles are perfect for sandy terrain.
Since you’ll likely be outside in the sun most of your trip, I’d recommend bringing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to block out a few rays. You’ll also need a beach bag to carry all your belongings.
