But, before you set out on your travels, you need to make sure you have some “beach essentials” that will allow you to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. We’re giving you the inside scoop on beach fashion, making sure you don’t weigh down your suitcase with things you don’t need!
The following attire is basically acceptable anywhere you go on the beach, including restaurants, bars, shops, etc. Here are a few things we suggest:
Ladies should pack: Bathing suits (If you have 2, bring both so you’ll always have one that’s dry. Also, you will most likely be leaving with a tan! So, be mindful of styles that may give you funny looking tan lines.)
