But just what do you pack for a beach vacation, 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 beach 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 A 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 not 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 bodysuit 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 vacation instead of carrying a million bikinis!

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?

    4. Don’t forget to pack the accessories!

    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!

    With those 5 tips, you can pack for that beach vacation without a fuss, when the season calls for it!

    I treasure bikinis for the beach; and we all do!

    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!

    2. 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!

    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?

    3. The One-Piece Body Suit

    Don’t forget to pack your body suit for your vacation!

    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!

    4. 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 vacation!

      I just got back from a beach vacation, too bad I didn’t read this sooner! I like all the different options you show, although I tend to wear the same outfits or types of outfits when I’m at the beach. The one thing I’ll need to add is a sun hat.
