You have your plane tickets secured and hotels reserved, and now what’s left is the question of what to pack. Planning what to wear on vacation can actually be a fun task, knowing that there are lots of resort-ready accessories, dresses, and swimsuits made for a summer holiday. Plus, a last-minute buy means you have something new and exciting to bring along with you.
Tropical destinations and beach getaways require little clothing, but the following items make up a solid list of vacation essentials. You’ll want at least one resort-ready dress that you can wear to cocktails and dinner but also to the beach with sandy hair and flip-flops. Items that provide sun protection are key—a shade hat, a beach cover-up, and of course, a daily SPF for starters. An accessory (or two!) that will instantly activate your vacation mode and that you can wear with everything you’ve packed, say a pair of woven slides or an earring made out of a seashell, and of course, a practical but cute carryall to stash all of your beachy belongings into.
Look to the below for the ultimate packing guide for this summer’s holidays, tropical getaways, and relaxing retreats, and as a one-stop-shop for all of your vacation style needs.
