The Beach Getaway Suitcase: How to pack like a pro

Palm trees, big waves, cocktails. As temperatures begin to dive, a beach getaway to a tropical destination scores high on our wishlist. The prospect of slipping away to a sandy slice of heaven with balmy temperature and swaying palm trees is always a welcome diversion especially when you’re camping on the beach in Texas.

While the idea of a vacation is to relax and rejuvenate, a stylish travel wardrobe makes things even better. Heading to the seashore? Nail that beach look with our curated list of sensible and stylish off-duty essentials.


En Route to the destination

  • Embark on your getaway with a travel look that’s in line with the aesthetics of your destination.
  • A cute sun dress or a shirt dress teamed with a chic tote is a comfortable option for exploring the town.
  • Add flair to your look with casual pieces like a pair of espadrilles and minimal accessories. When dressing for the beach keep in mind that less is always more.



Sun Salutation

  • Colourful, printed and patterned bikinis are great for sunbathing or womens rashies for frolicking by the waves.
  • A beach-ready bag is a must for storing essentials and your sun block cream.
  • Take heed to protect yourself from the sun, with a pair of playful sunglasses.


Water sports

  • Planning to indulge in some adrenaline fuelled activities? Opt for a stylish neoprene bikini, recognised for its extreme durability and ability to withstand vigorous activities or throw on a pair of water- resistant shorts over your one-piece swimsuit.
  • Avoid losing your shades to the ocean with strap-fasteners for firmer grip.


Cover up

  • Don a playful romper or cover that bikini up with a semi-sheer kaftan in bold prints.
  • Greet the sand in a preppy sarong that complements the swimsuit .
  • Bright strappy sandals or flats studded with dainty beads will take you straight from the sand to the city.


Traversing the city

  • A strappy patterned dress teamed with espadrilles and funky, colourful jewellery will have you sorted for an afternoon by the poolside or a beachfront dinner.



When packing a suitcase, let the nautical theme inspire you. Whether you expect to jaunt between the massage room and the beach or venture out for an adventure, don’t compromise on your sense of style and flair.
