Beautiful Bargains For Beach & Beyond

  Whether you’re planning on jet-setting to the nearest island soon, or dreaming of a beach come summer, DFW Style Daily has your vacay shopping needs covered. In fact, today’s edition of Stealing It practically demands a well-deserved getaway. Sourcing the season’s best sandals, shades, and swimwear for under $100, our list leaves you plenty of green to plot a course to your favorite far-flung destination.       The Cover-Up: A chic cover up is the key to maximizing destination days. Our picks from Zara, JCrew, and Nasty Gal (left to right) will take you from surf to seaside hot spot in a second. Simply add baubles and heels to make a speedy transition.   Price Tags: Zara’s red tunic, $60; JCrew’s printed dress, $88; Nasty Gal’s white shift, $48           The Bikini: We try not to play favorites, but Topshop’s black-and-white bikini is our current swimwear obsession. Pair it with brights or other graphic items for a polished look. Prefer a print? Go for H&M’s pretty purple ruched suit.   Price Tags: Topshop’s bikini, $60; H&M’s printed bikini, $13 & up           The Sandals: On-trend and way under budget, Forever 21’s basket weave sandals and strappy flats channel two of spring’s major musts - bold black-and-white and transparency, respectively. Topshop for Nordstrom’s chunky flatforms (at top) also rank among our top picks.   Price Tags: Forever 21’s sandals, $20 and flats, $15; Nordstrom’s flatforms, $64           The Beach Bag: Since a successful sandy adventure requires a lot of stuff, we’re beachy keen on carryalls by ASOS, Nine West, and Duro Olowu for JCPenney (clockwise from top). Toss in everything from fedoras to Frisbees, then tie the handles with a sunny scarf.   Price Tags: ASOS’s bag, $22; Nine West’s tote, $44; JCPenney’s tote, $50           The Accessories: We don’t recommend rocking too much bling with your bikini, but just a few accessories couldn’t hurt. We love non-profit Mission Lazaro’s leather bracelet, a relaxed hat from Dillard’s, Sunglass Hut’s shades by Vogue, and a rough-cut ring from Urban Outfitters.   Price Tags: Bracelet, $10; Hat, $24; Sunglasses, $80; Ring, $28
