2) The Oversized Hat. Top of any and every au soleil outfit with an oversized hat to protect you from the coveted sun's dangerously inviting rays. This Genie by Eugenia Kim floppy straw hat boasts a wide brim, on-trend colorblocking, and rich gold hardware. Packing Tip: While these hats are extremely durable and easily pliable, protect the longevity of their shape and save space in your suitcase by packing your underwear and/or swimwear in the crown of the hat for travel in lieu of tissue-paper stuffing.
3) The Maxi Dress. Wrinkle-free, easy-to-pack, and appropriate for every island-inspired occasion--from shopping, to sunset cocktails, to a barefoot walk on the beach--this Susana Monaco maxi dress will be the most worn item on your trip. Blue and white stripes pay homage to nautical style, while the body-conscious silhouette adds an element of sexy to the preppy print. The maxi length and soft, stretchy fabrication make this a great option for your plane ride as well; the other passengers will be shrinking in their sweatshirts with fashion envy!
4) Statement Sunglasses. We introduced you to Illesteva sunglasses this season, and we sold out in record speed. Today, we receive a new shipment of fresh and innovative styles that will literally leave you feeling made in the shade. Our favorite style? Classic tortoise-shell frames with fashion-forward, bright blue lenses. We're pretty sure, you'll want to wear these sunglasses at night!
5) The Pretty Bikini. When we are wearing a bikini, we want to look feminine, and nothing says feminine more loudly than florals. Lily and Lionel's whimsical prints translate into unique and girly swimwear that will leave you feeling like the prettiest girl at the pool! Styling Tip: Looking for four looks for the price of two? Choose a floral print bikini and a solid bikini in a complimentary style and color. Opt for full floral and head-to-toe solids on days 1 and 3, and mix it up with solid bottoms and a printed top followed by the reverse for days 2 and 4.
6) The Elevated Flip-Flop. Classic flops are great for the boardwalk and the town pool. But, when you are heading on a special getaway, you want something just a tad more special. This Yosi Samra slides offer the functionality of a flip-flop with a hidden thong construction, but they have the look of a high-end designer slide. The gold trim and quality leather fabrication make them super sophisticated, while the padded footbed makes them super comfortable. Perfect for wearing with everying from your bikini and cover-up to your evening maxi!
