From breezy sundresses to simple accessories, we've rounded up some quick spring break wardrobe tips and picks that we're eyeing ahead of spring break plans.

1.Maximize your outfits with matching sets, especially when you're limited on packing space.

Matching sets are the epitome of effortless style and versatility. From coordinated crop tops and skirts to matching shorts and blazers, these sets take the guesswork out of outfit planning and ensure a chic and put-together look. Mix and match different sets to create multiple outfits for your spring break adventures.

2.Prioritize comfortable travel attire that you know you'll wear all the time (even when you're not on vacay).

Yes, we know top of mind are those statement-making, fun, totally instagram-worthy outfits, but don't forget comfortable pieces that will get you through travel and exploring days! For days filled with sightseeing, exploring, or lounging by the pool, comfortable athleisure pieces are a must-have. Opt for bikers, t-shirts, athleisure sets, breathable leggings, cozy sweatshirts, tank/t-shirt dresses, and stylish sneakers that allow you to move freely and stay comfortable all day long. Transition seamlessly from yoga class to brunch with friends in these versatile pieces.

3.Seamlessly go day to night with versatile dresses like a little white dress, shirt dress, sundress, and little black dress.

Nothing says spring break like a breezy sundress! Whether you prefer flowy maxi dresses or more of a mini dress situation, sundresses are perfect for soaking up the sun and embracing the warm weather. Choose lightweight fabrics, classic styles, and colors that channel effortless beach vibes wherever you go. A neutral or simple floral will give you the most versatility vs. bolder options.

Shirt dresses are a timeless wardrobe staple that effortlessly combines comfort and style. This piece just gives a more casual, relaxed, yet polished look. The shirt dress is perfect for daytime adventures, casual outings, beachside dinners, and more. You can even pair this option over swimwear as a coverup. Style the shirt dress with simple sandals and statement accessories for an easy and chic ensemble. Opt for styling with sneakers for the most relaxed, casual, sporty vibe.

You cannot go wrong with a classic little white dress or little black dress. Selecting a style and fabric that is classic will allow you to wear this number year round and a go-to to streamline packing for your trips. Make this ensemble feel special for vacay with a pop of color in your shoes and accessories.

4.Look for cover ups that can also function as an outfit.

A stylish cover-up is essential for transitioning from the beach to the brunch with ease. Opt for lightweight kaftans, tunics, longer button up shirts worn open/closed, flowy sarongs, or breezy kimono-style cover-ups that provide coverage while still allowing you to show off your swimsuit. Choose neutrals to maximize your ways to wear this piece or vibrant colors/ prints to add a pop of personality to your look.

5.Breathable, comfortable, non-distressed bottoms are vacation #goals.

We get asked a lot about bottoms - what are the best jean short options, what style jeans are in, are there any non-denim options, etc. Elevate your spring break and overall wardrobe considering non distressed denim options, like blue, white, and light colored denim, and non-denim options like: pull on shorts, trousers, linen pants, skirts, and skorts. Youll want to consider a combination of comfortable denim and non denim options you can wear with your tops.

6.For shoes & accessories, think: less is more, quiet luxury, simple.

This way you can wear with everything you've already packed. Plus, not make your suitcase trip the weight limit and making carrying your bags for you (or your SO) easier.

Invest in a versatile and practical bag that can take you from day to night with ease. Opt for a spacious tote bag or a crossbody bag in a neutral hue that complements your spring break wardrobe. Mini bags are also a vacay essential to bring only the necessities on nights out and daytime outings. Look for high-quality materials and thoughtful details for a touch of understated luxury.

Speaking of shoes, how many times have you packed like 5 pairs and only worn 1-2? Less is more when it comes to your shoe game. Keep your footwear game simple and chic with a pair of versatile sandals that go with everything in your suitcase. Choose minimalist designs in neutral tones like tan or white for maximum versatility. Whether you're strolling along the beach or exploring a new city, simple sandals offer comfort and style in equal measure. For days filled with walking tours or outdoor adventures, a pair of classic sneakers is a must-have. Choose timeless styles like white canvas sneakers or leather trainers that offer both comfort and versatility.

Simple jewelry will ensure you can pack the essentials and pair with every outfit you brought giving those effortless vibes. And no spring break wardrobe is complete without a stylish pair of sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun's rays. Choose from classic aviators, retro cat-eye frames, or oversized sunnies for a chic and fashionable look.
