The days are finally getting warmer, spring is in the air, and that means spring break is just around the corner. As far as we’re concerned, this is the best time of the year -- a little break from all that schoolwork and stress, just in time to soak up the sun. What could be better!?
Not only does spring break give you a welcomed vacation from school, it’s the perfect opportunity to have a little adventure. It’s time to shake off that long, dreary winter and have a little fun! Will you spend your break at the beach, surfing and sunbathing? Hitting the hottest clubs? Maybe having a little fling?
For one week, the world is your oyster -- and the possibilities are endless. But however you plan to spend your spring break, there is one thing you absolutely must do: look f*cking gorgeous and slay the fashion game! Here are a few spring break fashion tips and tricks that will have you turning heads all week long:
Spring Break at The Beach
It’s no surprise that the beach is a popular destination for spring breakers across the country (and the world). After all, what better way to bid the winter goodbye than lying on a warm beach and working on your tan? The perfect spring break beach trip combines four things: sun, surf, sand, and sexy swimsuits.
And what, you ask, is a “sexy swimsuit”? Literally anything that makes you feel amazing: a high-waisted, pin-up bikini; a Baywatch-style one piece, a barely-there triangle bikini in bright, electric colors. Trust us, if you feel good, you’ll look great. Whatever you wear, make sure you feel confident -- and that you don’t forget the sunscreen!
Of course, your beach day fashion won’t be complete without a few accessories. Grab your sunglasses, a beach bag, some jewelry, and even a hat. Not only are these accessories are super practical, they will keep your look fresh.
Paint The Town
You may spend your spring break afternoons relaxing in the sunshine -- but in the evening, it’s time to take things up a notch. Spring break fashion is perfect for living it up! And if you’re going out on the town, it’s best to live by that old motto: go big or go home!
There are many different looks you can try for a night out with your squad. Are you feeling like a real badass? Try a bold bandeau top with a pair of bold, colorful shorts or some (faux) leather pants. Is the vixen vibe more your speed? No one can resist a little black dress with a high slit or a plunging neckline.
But our number one rule for clubwear is simple: wear anything you can dance in! If you’re ready to let loose, a crop top and jeans are as fabulous as a bodycon dress! But remember, some clubs may have a dress code (you’ll want to check that out before heading out for the night).
A Spring Fling
We all know that love is in the air during springtime, so of course spring break is the perfect time for a passionate romance. And if you ask us, spring is the perfect time to unveil a new date night look, whether you’re going on your first date or celebrating a special anniversary with that special someone. It’s always the perfect time to wear your cutest outfit and be an absolute knockout!
You can try a few different options when dressing up for a spring break date. A simple crop top and shorts are great for a playful, casual date. The ultra-feminine look (think a flowy, floral patterned dress) is always a winner. If you want to turn up the heat, reach for a bodycon dress with strategically-placed cutouts.
Don’t forget to zhuzh up your spring break outfit with some fun accessories, too! If you’re going for the dainty, romantic look, a few subtle touches (like a gold choker or midi ring) add just the right amount of sparkle. And if you want to make a statement, go ahead and make it! A bold necklace or big pair of earrings will really let your personality shine!
Spring Staycation (or, Slaycation, amiright?)
Sometimes, spring break means nothing more than a week of doing nothing. And trust us, we feel you, girl -- sometimes vegging out and watching Netflix is just the self-care you need. But if you’re interested in a good old-fashioned, relaxing staycation, make sure you make it the most stylish staycation you’ve ever had.
When it comes to staycation spring break fashion, comfort is key. However, it’s also important that you wear something that makes you feel your best (seriously, that old robe you wear when you have the flu will not make you feel relaxed and recharged). Look for clothes you can move around in that make you feel all warm and fuzzy.
Sometimes, a comfy AF sweatshirt and your favorite bottoms are the perfect look for a spring break filled with that much-needed you time. In fact, it’s even the perfect choice if your girls decide to come over for some pizza and a movie night (or if someone else decides to come Netflix and Chill)!
At the end of spring break, you should feel energized -- and you should have a few more happy memories to cherish. And let’s be honest, when you look good, you feel better than ever! If you wear your spring break outfits with confidence, there’s no doubt this spring break will be one you will remember forever.
Spring break only happens once a year. So this year, make the most of it by wearing some spring break fashion that inspires you! Whether you’re hitting the Miami beaches or settling into a Parks and Rec marathon, you’ll enjoy it much more in something that makes you feel like the queen you are.
