Buy a bucket hat.

Bucket hats are a hot trend both on and off the beach this spring and summer. Find one that you like best whether it’s casual and colorful or more neutral and classic. Pastel bucket hats were seen on the fashion runways earlier this year, but you can choose whichever color and material that best fits your vacation wardrobe. This cute but totally practical accessory is a perfect fit for your beach days. The hardest part is deciding which one you want to buy and bring along with you.

It’s great because you can hold what you need and look cute while doing it. Whether woven or fabric, leather or faux, you’re sure to find the right one for you beach vacation needs. So many beautiful bags, so little time to use them all. Choose wisely, friends!

With so many flattering styles for every shape, size and body type—swimsuit shopping for your Florida Gulf Beach vacation will be oh so much fun.

Check the trends but keep your own personal style.

Last but not least, the biggest piece of fashion advice we can give you this season is to keep to your own personal style when considering the latest trends. Many of the fashions that come off the runways are not really wearable for the everyday person, but you can still glean some style tips and trends from them as long as you stay true to you. In the famous words of fashion mogul Yves Saint Laurent : “Fashion fades, style is eternal.” You know your personal style better than anyone, so make the trends work in your favor.
