Spring Break Packing: Must-Haves

Spring break is upon us, and you know what that means – ditching the dreary, winter slush (but melting! it’s definitely melting!)  to spend a week somewhere warm and sunny. We shop for many clients who are doing just that, and love helping them find the perfect pieces that will take them not only from pool to lunch and from the beach to cocktail hour, but will also work into their wardrobe back home .

The best part? Wardrobe Therapy also provides a luggage packing service, so that all you have to do is sashay to the airport in time for your flight.

We’ve pulled together a few of our must-haves for a warm-weather getaway. These pieces not only work well in a vacation setting, they’re also versatile enough for layering to wear through the spring and into summer.

L*SPACE Swimwear Frida Tunic, $174

An easy, breezy tunic with a  refined boho sensibility can take you from the pool deck to a casual lunch in style. Once you return home, a tunic such as this one from L*SPACE Swimwear can be worn with skinny pants and a tank underneath through spring, and with a white slip dress underneath through summer.

Eric Javits Floppy Hat in Black, $350

Not only is a great floppy hat amazing for maintaining an air of mystery (aka hiding from your kids), it also shields your face from getting too much sun exposure. This particular chapeau, by Eric Javits, blocks 95% of UVA/UVB rays, and comes in three classic colors.

Mikoh Tortuga Pant Romper in Night, $272

A fluid pants romper is a great go-to for a perfectly-polished-yet-comfortable outfit. This version by Mikoh can easily be dressed up with the nude wedges below and a chic clutch, or worn more casually with flat sandals. The perfect day-to-night piece, it also layers well for an easy transition from spring to summer.

Tory Burch Lexington Sandal in Natural Blush, $325

A great nude wedge, such as this pair from Tory Burch, will pair with your spring break wardrobe as well as this season’s flared jeans and floaty dresses. Choose a shade that blends with your skin tone to elongate your leg – because, let’s be honest, we all love having legs for days!

Acacia Huelo Kimono in Pacific, $141

A light kimono, such as this version from Acacia, is perfect for layering over the tunic or pants romper pictured above, and can be worn open or with its belt tied for a more defined waistline. When you come back from paradise, layer it over a tank and skinny pants or a maxidress for spring, and layer over a shorter tank dress for summer.
