Spring break is not an excuse to forget your sanity. Just because you’re in, like, Daytona or Cabo, doesn’t mean basic standards of humanity shouldn’t apply to you anymore. There are ways to do dumb things right, ways to look modest while drinking to excess, ways to sun in blazing heat while looking cool, and most importantly, ways to be photographed as memorably beautiful while you do something regrettably abominable. Here, a little fashion inspiration for your spring break dreams from the W archives—starting with the ultimate Spring Breaker of them all, Selena Gomez.
