Spring Break is coming fast upon us (Unless you go to a private school, sorry!) and you can’t wait to take a much needed vacay from academia. Before you head off to a sunny locale for relaxation, debauchery, or hopefully both; you need to check out the gallery below to make sure you have the essentials.
Swim Shorts- If your trunks are still below your knees then you're doing something wrong. A vintage cut and a print can take you beach-side, poolside, or upside down in a keg stand. [ONIA]
Sunglasses- You'll of course need a good pair of sunnies. Show up the chumps by opting for frames that are a little more modern. [Gant]
Sweatshirt- Follow the Boy Scouts' example and always be prepared. A nondescript knit will keep you warm when the temperature dips without sacrificing style. [Jacob Holston]
Hat- Even if you own a million snapbacks, (I know I do) upgrade your cap game this season with something a little bit sleeker. [Gents Co.]
Prep Shorts- Unless you plan on being in an early 00's Southern rap video, then your calves and shorts should have zero interaction. Assuming you won't be working construction, then the cargos can stay home as well. A simple pair of solid colored walk shorts can go a long way. [American Eagle]
Statement Tank- One of my personal favorite Spring/Summer mottos is "Sun's out? Guns out!" As cheesy as that is, it's a pretty fun philosophy to live by. Also it's the only chance for you to go out without sleeves before Summer and not look crazy. [WeSC]
Underwear- Momma always said never leave home without a good pair of clean undies. (Or at least I hope yours' did too.) When it comes to Spring Break unmentionables make sure that they're comfortable, flexible, and something you wouldn't mind someone else seeing. [Flint & Tinder]
Sandals- If you plan on letting your toes out then put your feet in a handsome leather thong (hold the chuckle) instead of a pair of dollar flip flops. [Clarks]
Casual Kicks- Since you can't wear you sandals everywhere, (Trust me, you can't) then a low key pair of slip-ons are the perfect shoe. [Vans]
Watch- Any good Spring Break trip is unpredictable. Keep your life together by sporting a timepiece that will go with whatever and can go whereever. [G-Shock]
