Caftan: Nothing feels as glamorous on a getaway as a breezy caftan. It shields your skin from harsh rays, covers problem spots by the pool and can double as a cover-up and effortless dinner outfit.
Bathing suit: Solid-color suits are great investment pieces. They're versatile -- change up the accessories for different looks -- and darker shades flatter your skin regardless of how tan (or, in our case, pasty) you are.
Aviators: Tired of the ubiquitous Wayfarer shades? Switch to aviators. We think there's no more classic or flattering a shape.
Sandals: Crochet is big for Spring-Summer 2011. If you're nervous about rocking the trend in dress or shirt form, try dipping in your toe (literally) with these sandals. They'll give any outfit a touch of boho glam.
