Packing for summer vacation can be a daunting task. You want to look your best for whatever activity comes your way. Sightseeing, fancy dinners, outdoor adventures, lying on a beach and indulging in new and delicious foods come to mind. It’s all too easy to go overboard and try to bring everything in your closet, ‘just in case.’ Luckily, you don’t have to bring your entire wardrobe on vacay in order to look amazing. With this summer packing list, you’ll find yourself looking fantastic with room in your luggage to spare!
Get Back to Basics
One of the simplest ways to eliminate bulk in your baggage is to bring staple pieces that all work together. When an item can be worn in a variety of ways, you save space and expand your options. For your bottoms, start with a great pair of denim, a cute skirt and the perfect summer short. Now, pull out some great tees that work with all your bottoms. Solid colors are easier to match, but throw in a pattern or two to add a little fun. Pick light-colored natural fabrics because they are easier to wear in hot climates and help protect you from the sun. Cotton-poly blends are best since they also don’t wrinkle in your suitcase.
