The calendar says it’s not quite spring, but if you’re like us, you’ve got your mind firmly set on one thing: hitting the beach. Of course, one of the keys to a good vacation is a great packing job—and TYR’s Active collection is the chic solution that helps you get the most out of everything you pack.

Whether you’re planning a yoga retreat, a stand-up paddleboard excursion, a sandy boot camp, or just crave leisurely runs along the shore, TYR Active’s multi-purpose pieces have you covered (literally—with UPF 50+ sun protection). And TYR translates your favorite fitness fashions from the city to the beach with strappy, super stylish bralettes; cool-kid “hipkini” mini-shorts; and mesh-splice leggings.

TYR Active’s double-duty styles definitely help you keep your suitcase petite—and we enlisted travel guru Melinda Chan Butts, founder of travel recommendation site buzzhopper.com, to weigh in with more ways to get the most out of your beach essentials.

Ahead, she shares her fitness-savvy packing tips to keep your style covered through different sun-soaked activities.

For beach boot camp

“Packing (or not overpacking) is a fine discipline,” Chan Butts says. Most days you won’t need bulky sports sneakers, but for those days you do, “Pack them if you need them and roll socks inside the shoes to save space.”

For SUP-friendly fun

Stand-up paddleboarding is the hottest—and most challenging—thing in beach fitness right now. Having your gear on point is one way to keep your mind focused on not. Falling. In. The. Water. This long-sleeve top will shield you from the super strong sun rays that bounce off the water all around you, and keep you warm when the sun goes down.

For yoga on the beach

Post-yoga, pair this cute halter with a sarong or shorts to bring some sporty-chic to the hotel restaurant—and you’ve saved yourself from packing another outfit. “I only buy mix-and-match and items that can be dressed up and down,” Chan Butts says, adding that they must be iron-free as well (of course!). “Life’s too short to iron–especially on holiday.”

For your daily meditation (with extra vitamin D)

The beach is the perfect place to combine meditation and sun-bathing. (You won’t have to use your Sharper Image ocean sounds to calm yourself; you’ve got the real thing!) This bralette-hipkini combo will take you from your daily meditation to a day of swimming and sunbathing. It’s also a perfect barefoot-on-the-beach running outfit—and its versatility fits right in with Chan Butts’ Zen packing mantra: “Lay out everything you think you’ll need—and then divide by half.”

For post-swim cocktails

The quickest way to go from sand to sangria? “Chic and colorful caftans can be your best friend. Throw one on over your bikini and head from beach to bar,” Chan Butts says. “Take inspiration from Missoni and Pucci prints and channel some vintage chic Italian beach glamour.”
