Above, Cassie channels a tropical look with a bright coverup and straw hat. She describes her style as “feminine luxe”—she gravitates toward neutral pieces that boast great structure and are made from quality fabrics, but loves an embellishment, too. Here, her picks for a weekend spent on the sand:
