Holiday season is here and it makes me crave a beach vacation yet again. I've always been a boho babe and hippie at heart so when I'm on holiday, I prefer wearing boho outfits which I usually can't wear in the city. I'm not very fond of loud colors or bright prints when it comes to clothing, and prefer outfits in flowy fabrics and solid colors. These make it simple to mix and match accessories too and you can throw on a lightweight cardi or kimono on for when the weather gets chilly at night. Never underestimate how costume jewelry can transform an outfit, and remember - bright accessories show off a tan. Shorts and tops or skirts and tanks make an easy daytime uniform but when it comes to night, dresses and playsuits make looking pulled together a snap.
Here are some of my beach vacation wardrobe essentials -
A floppy hat with a bikini top/crop top and loose flowing pants speak instant hippie chic!
A babydoll dress with cutout sleeves is cute and comfortable for both day and night.
This off-shouldered romper has lacy details which make it great for the night and it also doubles up as a swimsuit cover up.
This sheer chiffon tunic is versatile for both traveling and relaxing. Just wear a cami underneath for the flight or wear it as a swimsuit cover up or over a crop top and shorts.
Another hot piece for the night! This one is cute and the dark color and cutout shoulder details make it great for a beach party.
Many beach spots have clubs or resorts that require more glamorous and dresses up outfits, so make sure you carry one va va voom dress with you! I love this white one below which is so chic and elegant. Team white with gold for ultimate sophistication.
Fall and winter are synonymous with shades of wine so for a formal dinner, try a wine colored dress like this one. Add lots of jewelry to complete the look.
This beautiful lavender dress is the perfect outfit for the boho girl. Team it with sandals for the day and boots the night that helps it transition effortlessly from day to night.
Last but not the least is this dress with dramatic sleeves! So unique and eye catching!
