Swim Style Essentials | A Packing List

So, we’ve helped you plan a fabulous bachelorette party and you need to pack swimwear.  Maybe we’ve planned a day for sexy bartenders to serve you drinks at your house rental pool.  Or, maybe we’ve chartered a private yacht for you and your girls.  Perhaps we’ve booked you a table at the hottest pool party in town.  Better yet, maybe you’re doing all of the above!

In any case, you’ll want to look your best.  So, Bach to Basic has you covered with this swim style essentials packing list.

#1 Bathing Suits (Duh)

Maillots, bikinis and thongs, oh my! No matter how much skin you choose to show, you can always look sexy and stylish.  Maillots (or one-pieces) are no longer considered matronly.  Bonus – They can double as a bodysuit with high-waisted skinny jeans and strappy sandals for day-drinking at a casual/cool eatery with the girls.

#2 Cover-Ups

When you aren’t sprawled out on a pool float, you’ll want a cover-up to take your swim style to the next level.  Choose from kimonos, pull-overs with tassels and pom-poms, rompers, or flowy pants/skirts.  Simply add a glass of prosecco for instant chic.

#3 Hats & Shades

Is that a bride and her bachelorette party, or a movie star with her entourage? Keep them guessing.  Sun hats and shades are a KILLER combo – looking oh-so-chic – all while hiding your dark circles (a byproduct of last evening’s debauchery).

#4 Beach Tote

Keep all of your essentials handy with a stylish beach tote.  Stay traditional with a straw bag or go hands-free with a now-trendy fanny pack (perfect for double-fisting margaritas).

#5 Suncreen

Keep your complexion in pristine condition for your impending nuptials.  UV rays and free radicals are NOT invited! Dip into your local drugstore for an inexpensive (yet effective) option, or splurge on something LUXE for your special weekend.
