10 Tips To Pack Outfits For A Beach Vacation

Are you someone who hates tagging along heavy baggage to your vacation? Do you love to know how to optimise your packing list so that you don’t have to carry a lot of clothes but just pick few basics and style them differently to create new looks!!

Bingo!! I heard you πŸ˜€

December is here!! I guess most of you would be planning for a vacation and majorly, it is a perfect time for a beach vacation!!

So, here I go with all the styling tips which I am going to splurge at you for your beach vacation πŸ˜€

For me, an outfit includes clothing and accesories. These tips include all about those πŸ™‚

1. Whites Will Be Your Saviour

White has that cool vibe which syncs in well with the beaches and adds a touch of bohoΒ  vibe as well.

2. Choose A Pair Of Comfortable Shorts

Pick a pair of light-colored shorts-say, white or light-colored denim which could go with most of your tops

3. Carry One Bohemian Shrug In Neutral Color

Preferably, a white shrug.It would be great to flaunt in a beach πŸ™‚

4. Carry A Couple Of Floral/Embriodery Skirts

Since, our basic whites don’t add that pop of color, try to choose a couple of skirts which bring in that colorful essence to your outfit.

5. Pick Good Shades / A Straw Hat

How can you miss these and that too for a beach vacation unless you want to get tanned!! Also, these accessories give a complete different look to your outfit.

6. Carry A Mix of Neutral and Colorful Tops

Since we stuck to neutral colored shorts and shrugs, pick a few tops which are colorful and if you choose to carry a colorful shrug, pick light colored tops. Choose these tops such that they go with the skirts as well. Pack Less!!

7. Don’t Forget Flip-Flops or Any Comfortable Pair Of Flats

I choose a pair of white mules which go with almost most of my outfits. You can choose even gladiators or boho sandals. Comfort should be your priority πŸ™‚

8. Bohemian Backpack/ Sling

I prefer a backpack or a bucket sling as I can dump in a lot of stuff. Try sticking to tan colored bags as they can go with most of the outfits πŸ™‚

9. Convertible Dress

This is one boon if you could find a dress which can be converted into a shrug or a maxi which you style as skirt. You can easily create a minimum of 2-3 looks with such a dress.

10. Bunch Of Bracelets and Rings

These are absolutely going to accentuate the look. Go clumsy with bracelets and rings and stay subtle with chains or go for a heavy boho neckpiece and ditch other accesories.

Never go heavy with all accessories. Highlight one and relax the others πŸ™‚

You can clearly see that I have used the same pair of shorts for completely different looks and same is the case with tops.I choose tops and bottoms in such a way that they can be interchanged.

Hope these tips are helpful for you guys πŸ˜€

HUES OF WHITE

If you are one among those who categorize white shirt as a casual outfit option, then this post would definitely change your stance on that opinion.All I would like to convey here is that white shirt is versatile enough to be apt for any occasion if you style it on point.

I would be giving some styling gyaan on three basic looks which I believe would be helpful for you πŸ™‚

The age-old classic combo of white shirt, blue denimΒ : It looks absolutely elegant but isn’t it boring to carry the same look all the while?!! Well, you can bring a completely different perspective to the look by going for colorful juttis (Ditch those high heels, I wonder how one feels comfortable in stilettos though :/ ) , a messy updo and handmade tassel earrings.Trust me, it is going to work πŸ™‚

Office wear : I agree that you need to be formal.Keeping that in mind, what could be done? There is a lot of scope : Tie around a beautiful neutral color tassel scarf around your neck or just tag along a grey colored kimono/linen jacket and match it with the bottom or just layer the white shirt over a plain neutral colored camisole.

Yeah, I heard you girls πŸ™‚ The party look – Add a pop of a bright color like red or burgundy or yellow or royal blue to the outfit.If you are wondering how to do that, then the answer is accessories and makeup.Accessories could be a good pair of heels flaunting that bright color, a scarf, a pretty sling bag or clutch, statement earrings or neck piece.

Current trend of easy, breezy and sporty look flaunting those sneakers is what I have experimented with this time.It could be considered as an option for parties as well, if you are someone like me who hates dancing in uncomfortable bodycons or high heels.I choose a white on white look, paired the shirt with a pleated white skirt and a white choker, and maintained the monotony of white. However, I broke that monotony with a bright red tinge with my cap and lip color.Also, this could be your go-to summer look as well.Here goes the look πŸ™‚

Splash those Colors

It’s time to kick those bulky winter outfits out of the wardrobe and fill it with some colorful spring/summer collection.Breezy and floral outfits have already bombarded my wardrobe now.

This look book is about my first look of this season featuring a bohemian vibe through a breezy off shoulder A-line dress and few colorful handmade Indian accessories. In line with my signature trend of using accessories to define any look, this look is no different. A beautiful handwoven clutch, handcrafted mirror earrings, a bunch of funky bracelets and colorful thread work juttis complete my look.

Let me skip that usual styling jargon for this post as this is a look book and I leave it to you to interpret it.Here goes the look.

Outfit Details:

Dress – Amazon

Earrings – Krafted with happiness

Clutch – Silk Lane

Ring – Dadar Handloom store
