Ah, spring break. It’s the one time out of the year when you can truly let go like getting up at 2 p.m. or having that third margarita---all bets are off. And that freedom should extend to your style. That means trying the kind of colorful, daring, and downright cheeky clothes you dream of wearing while slaving away in your cubicle, dressed in a pencil skirt and Oxford shirt.
So if you feel like lounging around the beach all day in a glamorous turban, do it, dammit. Or how about eating dinner al fresco decked out in a yellow crop top? Ain’t no shame there.
