Packing For A Spring Break? Here are 10 Things You Need In Your Beach Bag

The Summer Sweater2 of 11

The Summer Sweater

Just because it's hot, you're still going to need a sweater, if even just to combat the overzealous air con on the flight over. This Adelaide Spring Knit, £145, Blake Ldn is of our springiest faves. And if you're not going away? Buy it anyway and show the world that spring has truly sprung.

Golden Eye3 of 11

Golden Eye

Nothing is better against tanned skin than a smattering of gold. Try these Small Swallow Hoop Earrings, £40, i + i Jewellery.

Bespoke Espadrilles4 of 11

Bespoke Espadrilles

Every girl needs a pair of espadrilles for scuffing along the sand; but what about a bespoke pair? So snazzy, we can't even cope right now. Go for the Orange Espadrilles, £45, Design A Manger with black monogram and look like an actual piece of actual Hermes. For less than £50.

The LWD5 of 11


There's a reason why Isabel Marant has done so well and it is thus: everyone wants to dress boho, come summer. Even the sportiest of y'all find yourself tempted by a white lace dress, I bet. Nowhere produces better LWD's for the summer than British brand Little White Lies. This Skater Dress With Lace Details, £115 will have you looking like an off-dutee Cali thesp in no time.

Let Your Feet Fly6 of 11

Let Your Feet Fly

For those of you who will who want to club the pool slide trend to death (we kind of know how you feel) what about the sandal queens - IMHO - Ancient Greek? Their ultra–feminine (and very Greek)Ikaria Sandals , £124, are a bit pricier than your high st honeys, but they've got their own pair of teeny tiny heely wings. And, really nicely, each pair are handmade in Greece.

Try Some Triangl7 of 11

Try Some Triangl

Our new favourite bikini label from Down Under, Triangl makes hotter than hot swimwear. Growl like a cat (did we really just do that? Yes, yes we did) and try the Winnie in Lily Leopard Bikini, £53.

Throw This Over Everthing... Including Your Bare Bod.8 of 11

Throw This Over Everthing... Including Your Bare Bod.

Lingerie sexpots Beautiful Bottoms make beachwear too; and as kaftans go, nothing's sexier or more colourful than this Neon Aztec Beach Shirt, £145. An investment, sure; but it's 100% silk and will scrunch up in your suitcase for evermore. For poolside seductions, may we suggest wafting around the pool in it, sans bikini top. Risky, sure; but love's a game and you're the star player.

Buy Some Bargainous Swimwear9 of 11

Buy Some Bargainous Swimwear

H&M are our hidden weapon when it comes to swimwear. Not only are the bikinis a total snip at £16, but they're super durable and cut really nicely. This emerald green Bikini Top, £7.99 and Bikini Bottoms, £7.99 has some nice gold decoration on the hip and some sassy cut-out straps. It's the small things.

The Breton Dress10 of 11

The Breton Dress

You live in breton tees and Levi cut-offs, right? Well why not try some stripes in, er, long form. This Vintage Renewal Russian Stripe Dress in Red, £32, Urban Outfitters is so damn easy with a pair of sandals. Just add some eyeliner and roam from boat to boat looking ravishingly feral, look like Brigette Bardot.

Replace Denim With Crochet11 of 11

Replace Denim With Crochet

We don't know about you, but sometimes we really don't relish prancing around the pool with a wedgie large enough to pay homage to Rihanna. For times like these, every girl needs a pair of pool shorts. These Crochet Fringed Shorts, £40.62, Bettinis at Revolve are so pretty you'll want to wear them come evening time, too (do it. We won't judge.)
