5 Spring Break Vacation Essentials

Winter’s chill is finally starting to retreat, thankfully, which means that springtime is almost here. The sun-worshiping editors at Violet x Grace could not be happier about the 2022 Spring Equinox.

Spring is the perfect time to climb out of hibernation, shake off the winter blues, and go traveling. Many spring breakers are headed to warm weather vacation destinations near and far, and as such, the Violet x Grace editors are already dreaming up our shopping lists for the season of travel that lies ahead. 

Meet us below for five items that would make the perfect travel companions, wherever you choose to go this spring.

Classic Sunglasses

Taking inspiration from the geometric unisex frames worn by alternative music legends of the 1990s, the Mayan features statement temple pieces, a shallow fit, and a super lightweight construction.

Mayan Sunglasses


Spring should always call for new adventures, which should also call for new accessories. We love all of the sunglasses from Garrett Leight California Optical for their classic silhouettes, but also the way that each pair feels like a slightly updated take on something from the past. Take the Mayan sunglasses, for example, which feature a thickly-rimmed, geometric frame that is inspired by the music legends of the 90’s alt rock scene. Think: Kurt Cobain, et al. 

The Comfy Bikini

Designed from Hunza G's signature crinkle cut fabric, the Patricia Nile bikini in metallic dusty pink is made to fit a range of sizes.

Patricia Nile Bikini


Is it really spring break if you didn’t buy a new bathing suit? The Hunza G swimsuits are incredible–there is such a diverse array of colors, and the suits fit well on a range of body types thanks to the fabric’s crinkle cut technology, which accommodates a UK size 6-16. The Violet x Grace editors are particularly obsessed with the Patricia Nile Bikini in this dusty pink hue. We love the top’s thick straps and the high-waisted fit of the bottoms. 

A Perfect Parfum

Reminiscing warm summer nights in Greece, where the daylight is endless, Day Dream eau de parfum by Montale evokes the scent of Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Mandarin. The Neroli, the Tiare Flower and the Sandalwood awake the night into a surprising Vanilla - Coconut realm.

Day Dreams EDP


You might already have your travel planned in which case you absolutely should consider a new scent to keep you fresh from departure to arrival, such as a TSA-approved fragrance from Montale, which clocks in at 100ml per bottle. Montale is a Parisian fragrance brand that is famous for their use of oud, which we at Violet x Grace love. Filled with orange blossom, jasmin, mandarin and neroli, Day Dreams by Montale is the perfect, dreamy fragrance to accompany you on your spring break travels. 

After Hours Lingerie

Sheer demi bra with unpadded lace-trimmed cups. Offers support and sexiness, making it Fleur du Mal's most essential underpinning. Pair with the matching Sheer Tulle Bikini or Sheer Tulle Thong.

Sheer Tulle Demi Bra


Whether you are traveling solo or with a companion, it is always a good idea to pack a set of undergarments that you love. The Sheer Tulle Demi Bra from one of our favorite brands, Fleur du Mal, comes in a seductive shade of light purple that you can’t take eyes off of. We also love the Sheer Tulle Thong and Sheer Tulle Bikini that pairs back to this bra. The fabric fits and feels amazing on the skin–you won’t want to take this set off!

The Updated Sundress

The Postcard Spliced Mini Dress in Spliced Tonal Floral from Zimmermann's Resort 2022 Collection, The Postcard. A linen mini dress featuring a tucks through the skirt and off-the-shoulder straps with rouleau ties and pearl ends.

    Postcard Spliced Mini Dress


    We love Zimmermann sisters Nicky and Simone and their gorgeous dresses that embody the spirit of spring so perfectly. The Postcard Spliced Mini Dress is the sundress that your closet is missing–bright, floral, and spliced for an updated look. The Violet x Grace editors have been obsessed with this dress since it arrived in our store. We can’t get enough of the shoulder tassel details, the belt that cinches at the waist so well, and the pleated skirt that feels ladylike, yet still fun and youthful, as seen on fashion influencer Chrissy Rutherford.
