Fashion Staples to Pack for Your Beach Vacation

Hey fashion lovers! It’s time to evaluate if your wardrobe is ready for your upcoming summer vacation. Make sure to have these accessories on hand before hitting the beach and playing in the surf.


Just because you will be spending your next vacation with your toes in the sand does not mean that you cannot look great doing it. Before you take off for your beach adventure, be sure that you have packed the essentials that you need to be both practical and stylish. For instance, you definitely don’t want to forget to bring a hat!

Your hat selection does not have to be limited to the quintessential baseball cap. Bucket hats are still all the rage and make a great beach accessory. And nothing screams beach vacation quite like a traditional straw Panama hat. A hat is an ideal accessory to let your true personality shine through.


Not only do sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays, but they also are the ultimate beach fashion accessory. Depending on your sense of style, you can invest in a classic pair of aviator shades or go bold with colored lenses and funky designs. The most important consideration to make is the function and fit of the sunglasses. You want your sunglasses to be able to withstand the adventure of your beach adventure.


This is an area where you can truly get creative. The beach is the perfect place to experiment with more casual clothing styles. Try packing some graphic t-shirts with funny quotes. Or go for a classier look with a collared floral shirt for a nice dinner out at sunset on the beach.

Swim Trunks

Swim trunks are a highly personalized beachwear item, and there are dozens of styles to suit every body type. Regardless of whether you go for the classic board shorts or a more European Speedo style, you will want your swim trunks to fit comfortably so that you are not self-conscious. It is always a good idea to pack two pairs of swim trunks if you know that you will be getting wet every day. This ensures that one will always be dry when you want to wear it.


Since shoes take up a lot of space in your bag, look for something fashionable, yet comfortable and versatile that you can wear for just about any beachside activity. A sturdy pair of sandals and a nice pair of loafers make for the perfect shoe combination when traveling to the beach. Whatever type of shoe you choose to bring along, make sure it’s easy to slide on and off so you can dive in!

This is by no means a comprehensive list of everything you should take with you to the beach. But at least it’s a start to help you prep your outfit and accessories.
