What to Wear- Spring Break

It used to be very difficult to find summer clothes in the dead of winter. But as cruises and other mid-February/early March vacations have become more and more common place, so too has the ability to find so-called Resort Wear. In addition to swimsuits and cover ups, you'll find a collection of sun dresses, capri pants and tanks in stores right now. If I was headed to Playa del Carmen or the Bahamas, here's what I would be wearing:

Picture- perfect for sunset cocktails on the Lido deck of a cruise ship, Avenue's Knit Dress comes in three colors (Black, Olympian and Geranium- shown). Metallic sandals dress it up for night, flip flops make it day-wear, appropriate for shopping in a Mexican market place. Available in sizes 14-32, $39.95.
When you're vacationing at the beach, be sure to have several swimsuits to choose from. There are few things more unpleasant than slipping on a slightly damp suit that hasn't had time to dry from the day before. Old Navy has plenty of fun and affordable options, like this halter suit in a glamourous 1940's print. Available in sizes 1X-4X, $49.50.
Your butt will be the envy of your tour group in these Twin Dragon Cropped Jeans from Calvin Klein. The high pockets have a lifting effect on the rear. Available in sizes 14-24, $79.50.
Show off those sun-kissed shoulders in Missphit's Diva Halter. It would look oh so all-America paired with those cropped jeans (above), or go nautical-crisp by pairing it with white cotton pants and espadrilles. Sizes 1X-3X, $42.
