Pack for Resort

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, consult our extensive collection of Packing Lists, and feel the ocean breeze beckon.
