Pack Like a Pro: 9 Essential Items For Spring Break in Mexico

Free People Lacey Denim Cutoff Shorts

A pair of denim shorts is key for a beach vacation. This pair will carry you from the sand, to shopping local markets, to a night on the town.

JADEtribe Samui Stripe Beach Bag

A trip to Mexico calls for ethnic prints, and this cotton Ikat bag is sure to do the trick. It’s large enough to fit all your beach needs, and converts into a cross-body for picking up trinkets in town.

Mara Hoffman Frida Printed Bandeau Bikini

The Aztec patterns on this coral-pink bikini are perfect for a Mexican getaway.

Karen Walker Anywhere Sunglasses

Shades are essential in the hot sun, and this classic style will go with any outfit.

LemLem Dehna Tunic

A chic cover-up looks much more pulled together than a ratty old t-shirt.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 30 Ultra Light Sunscreen Lotion Spray

Last but certainly not least, don’t forget sunscreen! We love a good spray style, that ensures for a quicker and easier application.

Tory Burch Vanetta High Heel

A chunky platform sandal is key for navigating rough terrain (err…cobblestone streets or uneven sidewalks). A rich brown is perfect for a tropical locale.

Rag and Bone Braided Beach Hat – Natural

Not only are floppy hats right on trend, they’ll provide extra protection from the sun. Wear yours on the plane to save room in your suitcase.

Fekkai Summer Hair Afer Sun Mask

No one likes a fried mane! Protect your hair with this deep-conditioning mask. It detangles and works against UV damage, as well.
