Spend your Spring Break like a California Girl!
Contrary to what Katy Perry says, not all California Girls walk around in daisy dukes and bikini tops! Here is a guide to staying in style if you plan to head to the West Coast for Spring Break. Whether you’re visiting Northern California or Southern California, choosing the right wardrobe for your trip is essential.
Spring in Northern California is a bit perplexing: it can be nice and sunny but chilly at the same time. The best wardrobe to pack for a trip to Northern California is a lot of things that can be layered. Sweaters, tees, and light jackets will make sure you are comfortable no matter how hot or cold it gets. Pairing dresses with leggings and accessorizing with scarves and hats adds comfort as well as style to your outfit. Layering is also a major trend in Nor Cal, so you will right at home with your cool San Franciscan style.
In Southern California, the sun is shining and the waves are perfect for spending Spring Break by the beach. Keep your beach bag light with just a few must haves. Walk along the beach in your favorite swimsuit accessorized with a colorful sarong. Keep your feet safe from hot sand with some cute sandals. Protect your skin from harmful rays with a chic parasol. Finish off your look with some killer sunglasses and you are ready for a day at the beach. Don’t forget the sunblock!

Spring Break in STYLE: Tropics Edition
If a tropical location is your destination for spring break, Get Stylin’ has you covered for all your stylish, sunny essentials. Just because you’re wearing less clothing on the beach, doesn’t mean that you can’t make a fashion statement. Instead, the solution is simple: your bare necessities should be completely fabulous.
Ray-Bans are incredibly trendy right now. Whether you go for the Wayfarer, Cat or Aviator style is up to you, but definitely splurge for the polarized option if you’re looking to invest in a solid pair of shades.
Love a sun-kissed glow but don’t want the dangerous effects of UV rays? Try sunless tanner! The world of fake tanning seems quite ominous to most, but I’m a fake tan connoisseur, so I won’t lead you astray. Fake Bake Flawless is the best self-tanner for beginners. The application is super easy and the effect is completely gorgeous without being orange in appearance. Make sure to exfoliate prior to applying, and follow up with a good SPF before basking in the sun. You can find Fake Bake products at ULTA or on Amazon.com.
Of course, you’re going to want to show off your tan at some point, and coral is the perfect complimentary color for glowy skin. Plus, one pieces are SO in right now. Loving the belted waist too; the suit is really flattering. This is a bathing suit you can feel confident wearing! Pictured above is the "Sun Goddess" one-piece from Anthropologie.
Nothing says “I’m on vacation” like a big, floppy hat. Floppy hats protect your face from harmful UV rays, so bigger is better in the case of floppy hats. Forever 21 has an excellent selection of these hats in every pattern imaginable (striped, polka dot, and even neon), for an affordable price.
