Even though I’m in Europe, spring break is here for all of my friends back home. We’re going to Cabo. Or Rocky Point. Or Mission Beach. Or where ever else you can make a complete fool of yourself for a week and it’s 100 percent acceptable. Although what happens on spring break should stay on spring break, there will be pictures. Drunk eyes and unforgivable facial expressions are inevitable, but poor style doesn’t have to be. Here’s the lowdown of a few spring break necessities that will leave you looking adorable from the neck down.
A good bikini
This is where I kind of stumbled along the way last year. During spring break you spend pretty much all day in your swimsuit, so make sure it’s a cute one. Every girl really steps her bikini game up, so make sure that you aren’t the one wearing a Target swimsuit that you’ve had since high school (low key, that was me and I’ll never forgive myself.) Don’t let the fear of weird tan lines keep you from buying a cool bikini, I promise it will all even out in the end.
Okay Emmy, we’ll alert the media that you need high-waisted shorts on spring break. But there’s one thing you have to be absolutely aware of when you pack your shorts for the trip. Make sure they fit. There is nothing worse than trying to squeeze into a pair tiny Levi’s with a belly full of mango margs. Opt for a size larger, because not only will you be a whole lot more comfortable, the bigger size will make you look slimmer.
I don’t know what it is about having your shirt securely wrapped around your entire body, but let me tell you it is comforting. God forbid you get a little overzealous during the all-time classic “Get Low” and something pops out of your shirt. This is where bodysuits come in. They keep everything in the same place and make sure to provide that little extra bit of support that we could all use during spring break.
Final note… make sure to bring shoes you don’t care about. There might be one day where you just get sick of wearing them and decide to bury them in the sand at Mango Deck… or maybe that’s just me.
