Tip no. 9: DON’T pack your foam flip-flops

Since you’ll be on the beach, your best bet is to pack “flat, rhinestone-embellished thong sandals” or “flat leather sandals,” says fashion stylist Lani Inlander. If you really want to bring some flip-flops, buy a pair of plastic ones that can get wet and sandy at the beach, but still look fashionable while in a restaurant or shopping. “Foam flip-flops aren’t trendy and do not stand out,” says Wolford.

And please — leave your stilettos at home. If you need to add height, wear wedge platforms. Just be careful when walking in the sand, says Inlander. Another great option is to bring a pair of TOMS shoes. “They’re super comfortable, easy to get on and off, and go great with just about any cover up you wear,” says Cox.
