GC’s Guide to Spring Break Packing

Are you going somewhere warm this upcoming break? Have no fear – the newest spring break trends are here.

Whether you’re relaxing on the beach during the day, or hitting the town at night, it’s necessary to only pack the essentials. We broke down the six must-have items if you’re planning on heading south for spring break.

High Waisted Bikini Bottoms

This retro-inspired look compliments everyone, lifting up your bottom and cinching your waist at the same time. What more could you want?

Pacsun has the best bottoms to look good on every body type.

Crochet & Knit Tops

No need to call grandma for this one – crochet tops are all the rage this year. These crops have so much versatility, which makes them a suitcase essential when packing for spring break.

Its wearability includes a swimsuit cover-up at the beach, paired perfectly with a cardigan and jeans for dinner and topped off a colorful maxi-skirt at night for some boho summer vibes.

The cutest tops can be found online at Love Culture.

Bare Shoulder Shirts

Off-the-shoulder shirts are flirty and fun, without showing too much skin. The lack of shoulder material will also keep you cooled off in the hot sun, yet, it can still be dressed up for night time.

A good place to look for the newest trend is Urban Outfitters.

Round Sunglasses

So long aviators – hello giant round sunglasses. You will look far from a nerd with these glasses on spring break. Big and bold sunnies are a statement piece with any outfit.

All Natural Tan

Let’s all agree to ditch the Jersey Shore Snooki tan – put on some sunscreen. A healthy, natural tan is so in this year.

Need some lotion in your life? Ulta has the perfect sunscreen to accentuate your color and keep your skin safe.

Fresh, Dewy Skin

Highlighting is one of the biggest makeup trends lately and it gives the face dimension. Glowing highlight creates healthier and luminous looking skin, and it pairs best alongside a natural tan!

GC Beauty Tip: Brush a bit of highlighter on your shoulders when wearing an off-the-shoulder shirt. It accentuates and draws more attention to your exposed skin.

For the best highlighter for your complexion head over to Sephora.
