Summer Beach Getaway: What To Pack And What To Wear

Here's the checklist to hit the beach in style.
So you've booked the sea-front villa, bought the tickets, and have all the intention to hit the beach in style. It's as simple as packing a few chic and cute pieces to take you from day to night. Here's the cheat sheet of what to bring along for your beach getaway.

Beach wardrobe checklist

A seaside vacay calls for wild colors, easy prints and versatile weekend staples like these:

  • A cute sun dress or billowy maxi dress in white or floral is always great for the beach. They're easy to toss over your bathing suit for a poolside cocktail, and equally great as standalone pieces.
  • Light cotton tees, tanks or tube tops in cheery citrus hues or chic nautical stripes, which you can layer or wear alone
  • Denim cut-off shorts or mini skirt -- they go great with just about everything
  • A large scarf or sarong that can do triple duty as skirt, beach cover-up and shawl
  • Chic sunglasses (think gold-rimmed aviators or oversized shades) and sun hat
  • A loose cardi or jumper for chilly evenings
  • Rubber flip flops for day; jeweled thongs or gladiator sandals for night
  • Bright-colored bikini or one-piece swimsuit
  • A straw bag to tote your beach gear
  • Undies

Don't forget sun protection

Sunburn's definitely not cool. If you plan to spend a significant amount of time in the sun, remember to pack your sunscreen and other essentials. This list includes:

  • Sunscreen (at least SPF 30)
  • Aloe vera gel for sunburns
  • Camera to capture those Kodak moments
  • Towel
  • Insect repellent
  • Diving gear such as goggles, snorkels, fins
  • Empty Ziploc bags to hold damp swimsuits
