10 Essential Spring Break Fashions

You've been working that treadmill for months and going hard with all those WODs, because for one week in the middle of winter, your body flesh can experience the warmth of the South Florida sun. That wonderful week is called Spring Break.

And because this is such a significant moment in your young lives, you want to be prepared to fit in on the sand. So, as locals, we've put together a helpful guide to the 10 essential Spring Break fashions you should recognize before stepping foot on a plane or jumping in those salty 75 degree waves.

10. Beer helmet

There is nothing more Spring Break than a beer helmet. It's got that stylish appeal that says: "Suck on me."

Strap on two cans of your favorite shitty brew, and suddenly those beers look pretty high class. The two straws ensure an instant buzz and possibly a really fun, and definitely messy, night.

9. Havaianas or Crocs

Strip off those ugly Uggs, then get your nasty toenails buffed and polished for a rough and tumble week in the sand. You have two options for your paws: 1. Havaianas if you want to get laid, and 2. Crocs if you don't. Choose wisely.

8. Sports paraphernalia

You gotta let the others know you love to watch other people get sweaty and win at team sports. Not sure why, but it's really important. Also, proudly wearing "your" team's emblem is a simple way to rep your city or school. So bust out that Pats snapback and strap on those minuscule shorts with "FSU" on the ass and then represent.
