What we all yearn for! Go for that beach vacation that we have been seriously planning for! Get to bask in the sun in Dreamland beach in Bali, Indonesia! Or go for that treat at the spa by the beach in Maldives.Oh my! Such are fantastic occasions especially when you are headed to a hot destination!
But just how do you pack for such a vacay, to ensure that you are slaying all time long? How do you ensure that what you are packing is not only necessary but also that ideal traffic-stopping outfit?
Well, here’s what I do! Ride along to find out 5 tips on packing for what you’ll wear to your hot beach vacation and yes, six awesome beach sets that will send you shopping right now! These essentials will be awesome no matter the destination you are headed to; from El Matador beach in California to Diani beach in Kenya and from Treasure Beach in Jamaica to Baia do Sancho in Jamaica!
5 TIPS ON PACKING FOR YOUR HOT BEACH VACATION
1. Embrace loose, comfy and light fabrics.
Usually, we go to the beach during summer or rather, warmer seasons so where will you even need to wear your trench coat? Or your thigh high boots? Maybe at night when it gets so breezy?
Go for cotton or linen which is not only light but helps to absorb as much sweat. This will help you feel comfortable even when it gets hot unlike wearing faux leather which can get you melting from the heat and even feel so gross and burning!
2. Play around with your beach gear!
Beach vibes call for swim suits and bikinis usually, right? So instead of having just a few boring pieces of swim gear, why now play around with prints and designs?
As well, play around with the outfits. For instance: Pack a double set for Monday and a tribal print bikini for Tuesday. A pair of denim booty shorts for Wednesday and a body suit for Thursday. A floral print bikini for Friday and striped one piece set for Saturday. And a basic tee or tank top or that airy dress for Sunday! So many options for a beach vacay instead of carrying a million bikinis love!
3. Bring along pretty layers!
Honey, I know you love bikinis…just as I do! But we actually can’t be in bikinis all time long especially when we want to visit the street markets around the beach, right?
So instead of going back to the hotel to get dressed, just ensure you pack your kimono! Kimonos are such a jam till now and I don’t know what you have been doing if you still have none! With a light kimono, you can layer over your bikini and you’ll be good to go!
4. Don’t forget to pack the accessories!
Accessories are still every girl’s best friend so there is no point of not packing them in for your vacation.
From the sun hats to the floppy hats. From the sunglasses to the bangles and anklets. From the bags to the shoes; cross-body bags and sling bags are easier to bring along to the beach while slip-ons, flip flops, sandals and flat open heels are always much better than closed shoes.
Basically, learn to dress up with statement accessories and jewelry.
5.Pack your protective lotions and creams.
Beach swag entails more showing skin than normally. I mean, flaunting the long pretty legs and the cute arms, your bum and tummy so definitely, you will be exposed to sun rays. For some of us, too much sun causes breakouts and sunburns which are not only ugly but also irritating. So the best way to be safe is by bringing along that perfect sunscreen and other protective gear.
Above all, being well groomed is important! More skin is going to be out there and we don’t enjoy seeing cracked skin or even so, the-hairy-in-all-unnecessary-places type of skin! So one must eat healthy, drink a lot of water, exercise often, groom properly and use creams that work on your skin!

This bikini in gold and orange is just every girl’s choice since the colors, the design and the prints are just too attractive and perfect for Treasure beach in Jamaica! As Riri does it, you can also get a fun pareo wrap to tie around your waist!
INNER WEAR FOR THE BEACH
Who said that inner wear can’t be worn to the beach? I know that we can’t always afford swimsuits at times and also, swimsuits are made to handle water while your underwear isn’t. But if you got those pretty under garments, then rock them to the beach. Just don’t swim a lot with it since the underwear does not dry fast. You don’t want to be walking around with wet ones lol! But anyway, you can rock this one in Baio do Sancho, Brazil and turn heads all the way! I’m certain we can wear this one while taking a classic walk on the beach, right?
THE ONE PIECE BODY SUIT
Body suits are everywhere! And good enough, ladies are rocking them to the streets too when paired with trousers or shorts or even skirts. So when it comes to killing the beach swag, just opt for the prettiest body suit. And when you feel like heading on to a brunch with the girls, just throw on a pair of cute cutoff shorts! This one is in floral prints and has a V-neck to add an inch of sexiness and glamour to the whole bodysuit. And the pair is just perfect! Pretty sunglasses, pretty kimono! Pretty accessories! And pretty everything!
THE DOUBLE SET
The double set has been one of the designers favorites this year since a lot of clothes have been designed as double and triple sets. And this beach wear is no exception. For those with no much gut to rock bikinis, then the double set is meant for you! Just get a pretty one and be sure to slay on your beach vacay! Most especially, this is such an easy outfit to throw on as you run out of the door to go explore the restaurants outside and the beach in general.
A maxi skirt, or rather , a bohemian maxi skirt is an absolute must have for summer sine you can perfectly take it to the beach. Bright, colorful, flowing and very feminine, the maxi skirt is one of those articles of clothing that will never go out of style. It is perfect for a hot day on the beach, its long and breezy fabric keeps you cool and its classic lines give you effortless chic. You can wear it with wedged heels when rushing to a lunch date with your spouse or even rock it with flat shoes for a stroll down the beach! Honestly, nothing feels better when you’re on a boat than a flowy skirt that catches the wind.
