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.

Styling Tips: Spring Break Packing Essentials

Does it feel like Spring Break came a little early this year? We’re not complaining! If your trip is already booked, it’s time to get packing. We asked our Styling Manager, Laura, to pick out some of her favorite pieces from our most recent collection that you NEED in your suitcase, no matter where your Spring Break trip takes you. If a Panama City Beach Spring Break is your go-to choice, you’re going to need tanksshorts & the best swim gear – don’t forget a sunhat, sandals and a bag to carry everything, too! Is an alternative Spring Break more your style? Step up your style game in patterned joggers, or get to work in Flex/Denim cutoffs. Check out all of Laura’s Spring Break Packing Essentials below, and if you have yet to figure out where to travel for spring break… well, what are you waiting for?

GALS: Your packing game is all about the ability to mix-and-match for the ultimate Spring Break style without having to pay extra baggage fees on your flight. With the right mix, you can create several different looks for any occasion, whether you’re heading to brunch with your girls or hanging out on the beach. Be sure to take a shawl for cooler nights to throw over a strappy crop top, tank or dress! For days when you just want to chill, muscle tanks and shorts will be your BFFs. A trendy bag is the perfect carry-all so that you won’t lose your accessories, like sunglasses and necklaces. Last item on your list? Go-with-everything, beach-ready sandals!

Bikini beauties were joined by actress and The Duff star Mae Whitman, DJ Hannah Bronfman, Aerie girls Iskra and Eli and Fashion Blogger Sincerely Jules! To top it off and get that AERIE-al shot, acclaimed aerial photographer Gray Malin captured the event from a helicopter, high above the Mondrian South Beach Pool.
