Spring Break Packing Tips

Spring break is all fun and games, but packing is no joke! Read on for our packing tips to make sure no bikini is left behind and no outfit is incomplete.
GET ORGANIZED
You’re not the only one who needs to lay out this trip! Lay out everything before you pack it away, starting with your must-packs. Avoid over-packing by making outfits ahead of time and figuring out where you can mix and match!

Spring Break Packing Tips

CARRY ON
Pack a small tote for the plane with your bikini, sunnies and beach reads and you’ll be ready for sun as soon as you land. Battling jet lag is nbd when you’re on the beach.

Spring Break Packing Tips

MIX & MATCH
Pack smart! Coordinating colors that are easy to mix and match will lessen your bag weight and give you extra options for outfits. Remember accessories like hats or headbands to take daytime beach looks all the way through to nighttime fun.

Spring Break #AEOSTYLE: Packing Guide

Spring Break is back! We’re here to help you pack your bags for your Spring Break getaway with out packing guide. Pull out those board shorts & swim suits (we’re thinking the Aerie one-piece scoop suit will be our go-to this year), because we’re beach bound. We’ve got everything you need to survive the sun, sand and (let’s face it) non-stop activity of vacay week, from button-downs and dresses to tees and tanks. From sun-up to sun-down, your #AEOSTYLE will be on point in baseball hats and on-trend sunglasses to block out the shade. Ready to pack all of your spring break essentials? Let’s do this, #SB2017!

GUYS

Your packing list is as easy as it gets: shirts, shorts, shoes. Keep your luggage light by picking pieces in the same color family and picking tops like button-downs and active tees that you can swap out between board shorts and cutoff denim shorts. Top your look off with a baseball hat and Birks on the bottom, and make waves by spritzing on Surf cologne when you go out at night.

MAKE YOUR BOOTY HAPPY

Cheeky bottoms can be scary for some girls, but we promise, you will love it once you try it!” If you have a smaller booty, a cheeky fit will enhance your curves, and if you have a bigger booty, a cheeky fit will help define your shape. Check out our bikini bottoms fit guide to see fits in YOUR size.

ROCK A CROP

Opt for extra support or cover up a sunburnt chest with a crop: “We have so many options in this silhouette! We have styles with and without pads, for added modesty if needed! Crochet, prints, solids and embellishment — we’ve got your crops covered.”

CHILL. PLAY. MOVE. with Om & the City

Our CHILL. PLAY. MOVE. Collection works for every body and any activity. Read on to learn how Jules from Om & the City values the importance of feeling confident in what she wears.

“There’s nothing better than waking up on a day with no formal plans or obligations. Just an open day to do whatever makes my heart happy. No matter how I end up spending my time, I make sure to wear clothing that makes me feel good on the inside and out. This, my friends, is why I love wearing Aerie so much – I feel comfortable, beautiful, and dare I say unstoppable? From practicing yoga to eating popcorn on my couch, here’s a glimpse of how I chill, play, and move as an #AerieREAL girl.”

CHILL

“I’m one of those people who goes to bed verrrry excited to wake up and make coffee in the morning. It’s therapeutic, and I enjoy the process from grinding the beans to brewing it in my French press. It makes me feel calm as a clam 🌊 – which is how I feel when watering my plant babies. These tiny and seemingly mundane moments can actually be some of the most beautiful little details that make your mood 💯!”

“Consider this a version of mind-play – It’s my job to write, so grabbing my journal and writing down my dreams and ideas is exciting to me. Whether it’s writing song lyrics, full blog posts, or even simple lists, I always appreciate the little dreamstorms. You never know if an idea you have on a rainy Sunday afternoon will turn into something real and substantial someday. Give your mind a break from the constant noise of social media – put pen to paper and see what happens when your mind is at ease and has time to wander. ☁️”

“You gotta move to groove. Exercise doesn’t have to come from a superficial place. Staying active keeps your mind, body and spirit healthy, and that should always be a priority. I feel super energized after a sweaty yoga sesh or a breezy walk around my neighborhood. Find what it is that excites your spirit – maybe it’s rock climbing, biking, or dancing. You don’t have to be a slave to a gym if that’s not your jam. It’s certainly not mine! #YogiProbs” “Aerie empowers women to be who they are in their realest and rawest forms. I love the fit, feel, and look of Aerie’s clothing, and I feel incredible knowing I’m supporting a brand that supports me right back. Celebrating diversity and being vulnerable is what makes us human and what brings us together. That and high-waisted yoga pants.”

Thanks, Jules! Be sure to check out her blog & follow @Omandthecity.
