With today’s baggage limitations on airline flights, packing light is more important than ever. Who wants to pay an extra $25 to $60 just to lug bags around the airport and around town? Men and women can look smashing on the beach and in the clubs by mixing and matching a few easy pieces when they pack for Spring Break. How?
- Pack a few versatile accessories.
- Limit yourself to two pairs of shoes: a dress pair and sneakers.
- Buy it there.
Make your beach cover ups, like sarongs, do double duty in the club by accessorizing.
- Pack one or two reversible belts and a reversible/two-sided scarf – print to solid.
- Take two wallet-sized purses, one black, one in your favorite color. Leave the barrel bag at home.
- Pack interchangeable earrings, a broach or pin, and two necklaces.
