Now that the holidays are over, it feels like there's not much left to look forward to this winter besides cold weather. But with cold weather comes the excitement of a winter getaway. Heading south for a romantic Valentine's Day weekend or a fun-filled Spring Break trip to the beach is a time-honored tradition for many.
This year, Groupon Coupons teamed up with South Moon Under to help you pack. The boho-beachy boutique stocks a huge collection of brands, including Free People, French Connection, and Blank NYC, so you'll be sure to find the perfect vacation looks for days at the beach, nights out, and everything in between.
If you're headed out on a warm-weather getaway, swimwear is probably the first thing you're thinking about packing. South Moon Under has an impressive selection of stylish one-piece swimsuits and colorful bikinis. Save 15% on all full-priced swimwear (ends 3/18). Don't forget a cover-up and sunglasses.
Hands up if you overpack for vacation every time. We're all guilty, which is why we love this reversible bikini from Maaji. You get two super-cute suits for the price of one!
There are so many good things about a beach vacation, besides the fun and relaxing, there's the clothes. Because of the warm weather, you don't need much in the way of clothes. A few loose-fitting shirts, dresses, shorts, and sandals, and you're ready to go for a week. South Moon Under has nearly limitless options, but we've chosen eight of our favorites pieces that you can mix and match for daytime exploring and dinner and drinks.
Flirty, floral, and fun, this mini dress is exactly what most people envision wearing to dinner or for drinks on a beach vacation.
The price on these cut-offs is a bit steep, but people LOVE these shorts. The high-waist cut and looser cut-off feel have been showing up on tons of Instagram feeds.
Do yourself (and your confidence) a favor and buy this one-piece swimsuit. It looks simple, but the banding around the waist is uber-flattering and the V-neck and open back add the right amount of sexy.
We couldn't just show you one side of the Maaji design, so here's the reverse side. They're both bright, fun patterns that will pop in your Instagram photos.
You will probably wear this swingy dress more than anything else in your suitcase. The fit is perfect for a coverup by the pool, and you can also wear it to lunch or shopping. The pockets are an added bonus!
Show a little skin but still be comfortable with this breezy off-the shoulder top from Free People.
Need a dress for a nicer dinner on the beach? This maxi dress is perfect. Need a dress to go shopping? You'll stay cool and comfortable in this maxi.
When it comes to a beach wardrobe, your coverup is just as important as your swimsuit. You'll throw on this embroidered dress to head down to breakfast and any time you need a break from the sun.
A plain bodysuit is the secret to savvy travelers everywhere. This one, which comes in four basic colors, can be paired with almost every other item in your suitcase to pull together an outfit quickly.
Warmer weather always calls for lighter skirts and dresses. The tie-dye pattern makes it more fun.
The wide, cropped cut and frayed hem give these pants that laid-back vacation vibe we're all going for, and they pair equally well with heels or flats.
Every vacation starts with either a long car ride or a long plane ride, which means you need a travel outfit. To start your trip off right, we think a mix of comfort and fashion is the way to go. Our ideal plane outfit is comfortable leggings or joggers that look like actual pants and a loose-fitting top, plus a bonus scarf or poncho layer for getting extra-cozy. Add fashion sneakers—plain white or a fun pattern—and a roomy bag for your must-haves and you'll be traveling in style.
A carry-on personal item is one of the most important travel accessories. You need a bag that can do it all—it needs to have room for your book, wallet, tablet, and snacks without being too heavy or cumbersome. A backpack is the ideal compromise, plus this one also converts into a cross-body tote.
These leather-look leggings are the perfect base layer for travel. They will go with everything in your closet, and the leathery finish gives them the polish of actual pants. And bonus, they're made by shapewear-brand Spanx, so they are slimming through the midsection and thighs.
Animal print is the literal trendiest thing in fashion right now, so this kimono is a no-brainer—you'll wear it all the time on vacation or not. We like bringing a light extra layer like a scarf or wrap because it's always so cold on planes, but a coat is bulky and you hopefully won't need it on vacation.
Everything is more comfortable when it's oversized. That way you can snuggle into on the plane, but it's not too constricting when you arrive at your beach destination. This simple white tunic is ideal for traveling and then you can throw it on after sunset when the temperatures start to drop.
Travel days are all about comfort, so sneakers it is. But shoes take up a lot of space in luggage, so it's best to choose a pair with some extra pop. That way you can amp up your airport style and then you can wear them again with shorts and sundresses when it's time to explore your destination.
