Everyone’s favorite season is back, and summer means vacation! Not sure how to get ready for your next trip? Our packing list has all the best tips to help you get away without worrying!

 

The travelling essentials

Let’s start with the basics: every traveller needs practical items for a worry-free vacay. A backpack is always a good idea to carry city guides and maps, snack, a water bottle and other goodies you need while exploring; that said, you could go smaller with the back-in-fashion fanny pack! Also, think of getting a small and functional wallet as well as a passport holder if you’re crossing the border. Finally, a cute, small handbag is always a good idea if you’re going out.

Neutral clothing for endless options

When it comes to packing items of clothing, three words should come in mind: mix. and. match.

You need:

  • 1 pair of leggings (airport streetstyle à la Gigi Hadid, anyone?)
  • 3 pairs of shorts or skirts + 3 t-shirts, tank tops or blouses to mix & match
  • 1 pair of jeans or pants
  • 1 cute summer dress
  • 1 warm sweater, cardigan or jacket for those cooler nights
  • A scarf, a hat, sunglasses and your favorite piece of jewelry

Extra tips:

  • If your clothes got wrinkled in your luggage, hang them in the bathroom while taking a shower, the steam from the hot water will fix it!
  • Roll your clothes instead of folding them for extra room and no wrinkles.

Cute AND comfy shoes

OK, we know you want to look good while in another city, but when on vacation, comfort is key: you DON’T want to spend the week walking with your feet covered with blisters! Bring sneakers for exploring, sandals for the beach, and ballerinas or platform for the night.

 

Easy-breezy make-up 

We understand: vacation = Instagramming every day. But let the sun (and the filters) do the job for you! Keep it simple : sunscreen (body, face and lip balm — FPS 30 minimum!), mascara, and eyeliner or lipstick for the night. You’ll have extra time to work on that summer glow!
