There’s nothing we love more than a surf and sand vacation! A relaxing beach holiday should be about enjoying some fun in the sun, indulging in delicious food and making new memories with your friends and family. Rather than waiting until the final moment to pack your bag and risk forgetting important items, planning is paramount. Whether you need help finding trendy boho beach style clothing or you’re unsure what essentials to pack for your next beach holiday, there are a few staple items you’ll need in your bag.
- Boho beach dresses are a must-have
After lounging poolside, sipping on cocktails and enjoying a dip in the refreshing water, slip a breezy boho beach dress over your swimmers and head to lunch in style. You can never go wrong with a soft, breathable and lightweight mini or maxi dress — especially one that covers your shoulders and protects your skin from the sun. If you’ve been searching for a vibrant, bold or patterned boho dress that you can throw on with a pair of slides and a cute sun hat, you’ve come to the right place! At Gypsy and Wolf, we offer an extensive collection of mini, midi and maxi dresses in a range of vibrant prints and styles to choose from. You’ll feel the summer vibes when you opt for our best-selling Jess Dress and you’ll turn heads when you sport our striking floral print Annalise Dress. Our Carlotta Mini Dress oozes femininity, poise, and elegance for a fit you can wear from the pool to sightseeing to dinner.
With so many different and unique ways to style your boho beach dresses, you can never go wrong when you pack them in your suitcase.
- Bright and bold swimsuits that flatter your figure
It’s hard to embrace the sand and surf when you’ve left your bathers at home! That’s why bikinis and one-pieces are a beach holiday necessity. Opt for bright coloured and funky patterned triangle bikinis that complement your sun-kissed skin. And if you’re feeling bold, you can even mix and match your tops and bottoms!
Packing a one-piece swimsuit is also recommended for days when you need extra support and coverage while still showcasing your chic boho style. What’s more, a one-piece can act as a top when you pair it with a breezy skirt or a pair of white linen shorts. Opt for flattering pieces you feel comfortable in, so you can wear your swimmers with confidence and look as fabulous as you feel. Don’t forget to pack a sarong that you can tie over your swimmers, so you can easily head to lunch or breakfast without revealing too much skin.
- Boho maxi skirts for day to night wear
For a versatile maxi skirt that pairs well with any t-shirt or silk top, look no further than our gorgeous Songbird Skirt. We added buttons to the front of our tangerine-coloured skirt to elevate your style, while the cinched in waist tie highlights your silhouette. If you’ve booked a fancy restaurant for dinner, level up your attire with a tight white crop top and a pair of nude kitten heels. Another boho beach clothing item you won’t be able to live without is our Babylon Maxi Skirt in Sunray. This free-flowing style taps into the latest boho fashion trends and is a versatile piece you can dress up or down.
- Boho beach towels and throws to soak up the sun in style
If your next beach holiday revolves around swimming and sun tanning and you’re not staying in a hotel, you’ll need to pack a boho beach towel in your suitcase. A great travel towel is one that’s fast-absorbing and doesn’t take up too much space! If your suitcase is already jam-packed with boho beach essentials, opt for a throw — it takes up far less room and is just as chic! You’ll adore our playful and patterned 'Del Sol' Picnic throw that’s woven with 100% recycled cotton. The green and blue tones are reminiscent of the ocean, and on the reverse side, you’ll find the same vibrant patterns in different shades. Soft, lightweight and breathable, our throw is the perfect size for beach picnics or suntanning with friends. A boho beach umbrella will also provide sun protection and is a great option if you’re travelling to your destination via car.
- A boho beach bag
Now that you have your boho chic beach clothing folded and packed, it’s time to gather your accessories. A boho beach bag is a great travel staple and will add a touch of glamour and luxury to your everyday vacation style. At Gypsy and Wolf, we have a wide range of ethically made leather bags that are one of a kind and carefully hand-crafted by trusted artisans from around the globe. Each of our bags features painted designs, delicate embroidery, woven leather and studded details that elevate your overall boho aesthetic. If you’d prefer a clutch bag that will fit all of your evening essentials, opt for our Seahorse Bag in Tan.
