Spring Break Sophisticate

Sarah Landman, Solid & Striped CEO, Reveals Her Ultimate Packing Guide for Sun-Kissed Bliss.

As spring ignites our wanderlust, traveling with confidence and saying goodbye to winter blues has never been so top-of-mind. Once you have your next beach vacation planned, use these packing tips from Solid & Striped CEO Sarah Landman to arrive in serious style.

Costa Rica: Peninsula Papagayo

The new Snake Jacquard Bike Short and Lulu Triangle Bikini Top are perfect for the active vacation. This set is ideal for land and sea, as the bike short is made of swim fabric. It’s perfect for hiking, standup paddleboarding, zip lining, or a dip in the ocean with the kids. Our Passport Nylon Short and High Tide Zip Front Bra is another great set for all outdoor activities in the Costa Rican sun, as it’s lightweight and breathable. Lastly, the Tilda Dress in Viva Floral Print was inspired by the beautiful landscapes of Costa Rica.

Mexico: Cabo & Real Del Mar

The Fresh Air Ribbed Beverly Bikini with our Harper Jacket is so chic and comfortable for a poolside day. For evenings, I love the knit Aubrey Dress which is light, comfortable and—of top note—very packable!

Caribbean: Nevis

Our black-and-white, color-blockedLucia One Piece is as chic as it gets. I’d pair it with the Devon Tunic for a clean daytime beach look. For evenings, I love the Willow Skirt/Dress(it can be worn as either), which makes it one of the more versatile vacation items.

Florida Keys: Islamorada

The Anne Marie in Postcard Print with the Sarah Cover Up is the perfect daytime look for Islamorada. At night, I'd opt for the Riley Dress in Postcard Print—an effortless piece that’s equally stylish day or night.

California: La Jolla

The Brody Bikini in our Distortia Print is a new shape that I adore. Pair it with the Logan Pant for that effortless, laid-back California vibe. Additionally, the Mackenzie Pullover lightweight cotton sweater is ideal for a chilly evening.

Hawaii: The Timbers Kaua’i

The Esme One Piece in White Tonal Zebra Jacquard offers the ultimate fit and looks great with our white linen Leila Top and Lennox Short. At night I would show off the Esme Linen Dressin our black-and-white zebra print for a romantic dinner on the beach.
