5 Comfy Yet Stylish Pieces to Pack for Spring Break

Spring break is all about relaxing and having fun, so you’ll want to pack versatile pieces that will be comfortable as well as stylish for all your vacation activities. These five go-to pieces will help keep your spring break wardrobe streamlined and simple.

A Stylish Stretchy Skort

Skirts are fun, stylish mainstays for spring, but what about all those spring break activities? A cute, stretchy skort is the answer. It offers all the great style you could ask for from your favorite skirt, but with the added comfort and protection of your favorite women's shorts in one. From hiking to sightseeing to outdoor sports, you can do any type of activity without worry with this style. To maximize your outfit potential, choose one in a neutral color that you can pair with lots of other pieces. A khaki skort, for example, can go with everything from a striped tee to a solid tank to even your bikini top.

A Pair of Cute Cropped Chinos

Streamlined and sleek, yet with a cool and casual vibe, women's cropped pants have a distinctive spring vibe that makes them ideal to toss in your bag for spring break. These classic pants are cool enough to wear throughout the day and even into the evening, depending on the situation. You can dress them down with simple tank tops and t-shirts or you can make them look dressier with sleeveless button-up blouses. They look as great with canvas tennis shoes and casual sandals as they do with embellished flip flops and cute flats. Pair them with skinny belts for an extra boost of spring style. To save even more time over spring break, choose no-iron brands that you won’t have to worry about creasing to perfection.

A Perfect Polo Shirt

Pretty but polished? Check. Wearable with skirts, cropped pants and shirts? Check. Classy yet casual? Check. Fully fabulous for spring break day trips, dinners, and casual evenings? Check, check, and check again. Women's polo shirts are perfect pieces to pack for spring break because they are done in a comfortable, soft fabric, but also have that timeless, put-together look that works for almost any time or place. Stylish without being fussy, a polo is an easy-care top that you can wear with almost any other bottom in your suitcase. Choose from solid colors, stripes, checks, heathered options, and even print polos. If you plan on spending a lot of time in the sun, an active wear polo that has UPF protection can be a good choice.

A Cool Cotton Tank Top

A cotton tank top is another versatile and flattering piece that can be worn with everything. It can be left super casual when worn untucked with denim shorts, or dressed up by tucking it in with chinos and a cute belt. Wear it alone or under a casual jacket for a cute style. You can also wear it under a short-sleeved or lightweight long-sleeved top. The layers let you adjust to variable temperatures and stay looking great throughout the day. Opt for classic hues like white or grey or choose from spring-inspired shades. Cotton tanks are available in every color of the rainbow, so you’ll have no problem finding spring hues like turquoise, yellow, sea green, lavender, and more. If you want to spice it up a bit, choose a tank in a print or stripe.

A Sensational Shirt Dress

A sleeveless shirt or knit T-shirt dress is breezy, fun, stylish, and super easy to wear. This comfortable style is cute without being fussy, making it a perfect piece for spring break. Linen versions look especially vacation-worthy with their relaxed vibe. These can be worn alone with cute flats or sandals, over leggings for evening wear, or even used as a beach cover up.

More Tips for Spring Break Style

You can look fabulous and stay comfortable even without going overboard on your packing. Follow these tips to look great and show off your own personal style with ease.

Use Accessories to Create Spring Style

Accessories don’t take up much room in your suitcase, but they can go a long way in adding your own personal flair to an outfit. Cute sun hats, lightweight spring scarves, fun jewelry, and even sunglasses and hair accessories can help you make a splash with your look.

Choose Cute but Comfortable Footwear

Depending on your spring break activities and itinerary, you could potentially be doing a lot of walking. Whether you plan on sightseeing, hiking, or just walking along the beach, cute and comfortable athletic shoes or sandals will be a welcome addition to your suitcase. Your feet will thank you!

Don’t Forget to Pack a Few Layers

You might just be thinking all about swimsuits and cover ups for your spring break vacay, but the reality is you never know what the weather is going to be like. Be prepared with some extra layers, like a denim jacket, a couple of light sweaters or cardigans, or a packable rain jacket to stay comfy.

Keep It Simple

Packing fewer items that you can mix and match will help you keep your suitcase light and your focus on relaxing and having a good time. Having comfortable key pieces that you love and that can be coordinated in different ways will help you create stylish outfits for an unforgettable spring break.
