Throw in a mini dress (or three) as 90s fashion remains in the spotlight. Simply throw over a bikini and champion SS18’s City to Shore trend. The shirtdress should also be on your packing list, with lace sleeves presenting a romantic take on the classic.
Your tanned pins will thank you for packing a white skirt. Vintage-looking crochet nails beach-to-bar dressing.

You’re not vacation ready without a summer blouse on your radar. Volume sleeves are a new season hit with ruching details at the shoulders or waist. Show off sun-kissed skin in cropped styles.

The possibilities are endless when it comes this season’s summer bag trends. For party vacations, festivals and city breaks, consider the belt bag. Choose a pop of color or urbanite studs and carry only the essentials. For beach getaways, look to a carry-all in colored crochet, geometric weaves, or pastel basket material.

A simple swimsuit with a confident deep plunge neckline comes in rainbow colors. Playful graphic prints offer youthful appeal; classic block colors transcend seasons. For something with a twist, opt for a wrap bikini. The criss-cross ties are form-flattering and pool-party ready.
