No vacation suitcase is complete without the perfect pair of white jeans and some great espadrilles. Stay cool and on-trend in a light, flowing blouse and fedora. For color, try a tote in one of Spring’s Top 10 Pantone colors. We love this one by Rebecca Minkoff that falls perfectly between Serenity and Snorkel Blue.

It’s time to hit the beach. We’re loving Helen Jon swimwear, which comes in a huge array of styles and patterns to suit every body type. Show off your pedicure (We love Essie’s “Tart Deco” polish, which channels another top Pantone for the season, Peach Echo) in some fabulous chunky sandals. And don’t forget to protect your skin with a lightweight cardigan and sun hat (Bonus: Both are SPF 50!).

After a restorative nap back at the hotel, glam it up for a night on the town. Stand out in a bright blouse and colorful patterned shorts. Pair with playful fringe sandals (Yep, fringe is still going strong!) and the hottest handbag style from Resort 2016 collections: the mini-saddle bag.
