Have what it takes to nail this classic look? Of course you do. Just snag these five seaside staples.

Preppy StyleA Printed Shift
The brighter, the better. Go for classic florals or nautical prints. Bonus points for adding baubles.

Preppy StyleAn Iconic Sandal
Two words: Jack Rogers. There’s just something about the whipstitched style that makes us (and our outfits) feel complete.

Preppy StyleClassic Sunnies
Ray-Bans seriously have it made in the shade. Opt for mirrored lenses and put a modern spin on an old favorite.

Preppy StyleA Go-To Tunic
This top is down for whatever. Toss over your swimsuit by day and pair with white denim at night.
