Summer Vacation Packing Tips
Summer! The most magical time of year for unforgettable adventures with your best girlfriends. Regardless of your destination, we believe that the best way to maximize the clothes in your carryon is by switching out your jewels (like going from studs to statement earrings). That way you can go from the pool to market walks to dining and dancing without an overloaded suitcase or multiple outfit changes. Because who has time for that when there’s fun to have? See below for all our other top packing tips, plus a downloadable packing list!
Plan Your Schedule, Then Your Outfits
If you’re going to be beaching it all day every day, then denim jeans may not be necessary – but a caftan that can take you from the water to a late lunch will be necessary. Work backwards from your itinerary and plan looks that serve multiple purposes instead of just throwing everything you like into your bag the night before your trip (#BeenThereDoneThat).
Denim jackets over dresses, printed scarves over tanks, open knit sweaters over bikinis… Have a few items in your stash that can easily be thrown on atop your lighter basics for when night comes and the weather cools down. Our advice is same for your jewels: Instantly create a more dramatic look by adding extra bracelets, rings, and necklaces to the mix – although if that’s not quite your style, then we recommend just putting on a pair of killer statement earrings.
Keep Everything Organized
Pack each outfit together, rolling the clothes instead of folding them to maximize on space and cut down on wrinkling. And don’t forget to give your accessories the same care with one of our new travel jewelry cases that are not only masterfully functional, but also absolutely beautiful (and unlike most, actually designed to fit alllllll the statement earrings).
