Ah, if only everything was as easy as life on the beach – whether you’re in St. Barth’s, the Bahamas, or even the Jersey Shore, dressing for the beach is ecstatically easy: a bathing suit, cover-up and sandals can take you from sun up to sundown and crisp white pants and a sparkling tunic are perfect for an elegant evening by the water. And don’t let a last minute invitation take the wind out of your sails, pack an easy breezy cocktail dress to sail off into the sunset. To ease all of your packing woes, scroll down to see our Resort Packing List, and feel the ocean breeze beckon.
When traveling, we suggest packing in a color scheme to simplify your accessories. We went shopping at one of our favorite on-line destinations, Tory Burch to find some of our beachy favorites in a gorgeous sunrise scheme of yellows, pinks and oranges.
