Style 911: How to pack for spring break in Cali


California-bound this spring break? You’ll want to pack the essentials for a holiday in the sun. The key? Relaxed, go-anywhere pieces that’ll give you a casual coolness without trying too hard. We’re sharing everything you need from the perfect beach hat to the must-have maxi dress. 

Remember: Check the weather for your locale! Some places in Cali (like San Francisco) are chilly this time of year. And no matter where you’re headed, ya wanna stash along a rain jacket and a sweater to keep you warm on cool nights.

If you’ll be hanging by the beach: 
It all starts with the perfect fedora. Not only does this straw hat keep the sun’s rays off your face, but it looks super chic with everything from shorts and a tee to a bikini. Now all you need are some awesome aviators and a cool lightweight scarf.

If you’ll be shopping the boutiques: 
We’re sure you’re gonna wanna hit up the great boutiques Cali has to offer. A slouchy blouse looks sharp and is super-comfy. For day, try it with a pair of cuffed cut-offs and flat sandals. At night, the blouse goes perfectly well with dark jeans and wedges for dinner with the fam.
