ZAP Style Notes: Spring Break

ss_070323_cancun_beach.grid-8x2 Although Chicago's winter is in full effect (and my black leather riding boots have the snow stains to prove it), March is almost here and that means Spring Break is approaching. It's the perfect time for sunshine, relaxation and celebration when time allows. Here are a few looks for your next beach trip, including a swim suit to channel your inner Giselle and a flowy maxi dress for a full day of shopping. Whatever beach you travel to next, these stylish picks have you covered.


  • Patterned Maxi Dress: This flowy and strapless blue and white maxi dress by vineyard vines is totally on trend. The print detail is perfect for a tropical vacation and will even look great in your sunset Instagram post.
  • Bright Bathing Suit: Treat yourself to a colorful new bikini to sport on the beach. We love all the bright prints that Anthropologie has this season.
  • Evening Dress: Whether you’re hitting the dance floor or just having a quiet dinner, complement your tan with an off the shoulder dress, like this one from Akira, that can be accessorized to your liking.
  • Sandals: Give your feet a vacation from high heels with a cute pair of sandals to help you show off your pedicure and stay comfy. Try a lace-up pair like above or a more edgy one with studs.
