Form-Fitting Swimsuit

What’s a tropical vacation without some fun under the sun? Make sure to bring the best swimsuit that complements your figure and body shape.


Cover Up

If you want to look resort chic, then make sure to bring a unique cover up. This will keep you stylish and clothed in between your swimming sessions.

Maxi Dress

The maxi dress is one of the most convertible pieces for a resort chic look. You can wear it at daytime as you stroll along the beach, and you can wear it at nighttime for a romantic dinner or after-party drinks.

Mini Dress

If maxi dresses are too long or conservative for you, then make it a point to show your legs in a cute mini dress. Like the maxi dress, you can take this apparel from day to night.

An Arsenal of Colorful Tops

If you are planning on a long vacation, then make sure to bring an array of colorful, light fabric tops. Bright, pastel-colored or tie-dyed ones are perfect for beach frolicking, while a chambray button-down is important for dressier events.

Achieve a resort chic look without going over the baggage limit by bringing light and colorful shorts. Heavy denim shorts should be at the bottom of your list, especially if you don’t have check-in baggage.

For your vacation, stay away from precious gems. Instead, stick with cheap yet chic baubles. The great thing about these is you wouldn’t be brokenhearted even if they get lost.
