BOHO BEACH BABE

If you’re a fan of ‘60s and ‘70s fashion, you can channel your inner flower child with some cutoff jeans over a retro one-piece suit, plus some well-chosen groovy accessories. You’ll want a big, floppy hat and cool shades to help ward off the sun, and a bit of fringe somewhere… or everywhere! Slide into some comfortable shoes and bring along a cotton blanket for the beach.

WILD AT HEART

Just because you’re the outdoorsy type doesn’t mean you throw fashion out the window.  Your natural beauty will shine through with a simply chic camisole, drawstring shorts and quick-drying sneaks. Of course, you’ll want your gear bag to be both practical and pretty, and you’ll need a few choice accessories to complete your ready-for-adventure look.

SMOOTH SAILOR

Whether you actually set sail or not, you can’t go wrong with a nautical look on Bald Head Island. Classic navy and white stripes are a go-to in island attire, and red accents really make the combination pop. Why not add a touch of gold, such as a square knot bracelet, and be sure your shoes won’t scuff up the deck. The anchor-themed sailcloth tote will quickly become a favorite carryall, even when you head back home.
