What to Pack for a Tropical Vacation : The Ultimate Beach Vacation Packing Guide
What should you pack for your next beach vacation?
Whether your next vacation is to Hawaii, Mexico, Bali or Bora Bora, or on a spring beach getaway in the USA, these cute vacation outfits will have you feeling ready for your first day at the beach before you even step on the plane. From cute vacation swimwear, to resortwear, cover ups, beach bags, and everything in-between, here are my favorite vacation outfits for any vacay I go on.
Daytime dresses & resortey outfits
I bought this as a fun flowy vacation dress for my honeymoon in the Maldives. It was a splurge but it’s on sale and I was SO impressed with the quality. I absolutely love it. I will say I read a lot of reviews about the dress before biting the bullet and it seems it’s better on someone with smaller hips, because of the little ruffle on the hips! If you are smaller-hipped like me, though, it’s a DREAM fit – and they do free returns if not – I think it’s the perfect vacation outfit. It also comes in this gorgeous orange! (but this one isn’t on sale)
Perfect for: Resort dinners in Hawaii, sunset seshes in Fiji, girls night out in Tulum, sunset dinners on the beach in Jamaica, underwater restaurants in the Maldives, chic nights in Miami and private bungalows in Bora Bora
I’m obsessed with this romper for tropical vacations
Swimwear, beachwear, and cover ups
Perfect for: a resort day in Maui, a beach day in Bali, a pool party in Vegas, island-hopping in the Maldives, a beach club in Saint Tropez, yachting in Monaco
These are my favorite sunglasses – they’re so chic and they look good on EVERYONE who tries them on – seriously have turned so many girlfriends onto this brand. They’re soooo high quality. Cannot recommend enough.
These are my favorite flip flops for travel, beach days, anything and everything. These things are so high qual, comfy and cute. I bring them on every trip, and Kenny has a pair of the men’s that he LIVES in.
The best beach bags for a vacation
The best sun hats for a beach vacation
This is my favorite hat right now – I’ve been wearing it everywhere – the fit is so good and it goes with everything!
Love everything Hat Attack does – their quality is SO superior – and my favorite part of buying hats from Revolve is the easy returns if it doesn’t fit right – they include the return label right in your package so all you have to do is stick it in the mail if you don’t like it.
One pair of tennies for the resort gym
These are my go to sneakers for working out, anywhere – they are the comfiest things EVER.
Whether you’re going on vacay or just in your own backyard, this umbrella is a MUST! How cute is it.
