What to pack for your summer vacation
Now that both international and domestic travel are back on the cards and summer is here, we bet you’ve got an exciting vacation planned! If you’re fretting about what to pack, we’ve got a whole checklist here to make your life easier. Time for a wardrobe refresh so you’re looking and feeling your best at picturesque places, to create memories that will last a lifetime.
More than just a fashion accessory, bucket hats help to keep you cool and protects your face from the sun while you’re outdoors. A must-have on vacations!
Perfect for when you're chilling by the beach or the pool, make lazy days more comfortable with a handy pair of sunglasses while you're getting your suntan going.
From bath towels to beach towels, it's always nicer to have one set of each all packed and ready for use! Nothing feels better than enveloping yourself in a warm, fluffy towel after a hot bath.
Slippers & sandals
Comfort is key while you're on vacation, so having a pair of slides, slippers, or sandals just makes getting around so fuss-free. Invest in a pair of Birkenstocks you'll use for years to come, or opt for a sturdy pair of Havaianas you can easily slip on for pool time.
Keep things easy and breezy with a repertoire of short-sleeved or linen shirts you can wear on rotation. For added style, opt for ones with unique prints because all you need is a statement piece to pull off a chic look.
Whether you're relaxing by the pool or swimming in the sea, board shorts are an absolute necessity. Have one or two handy in colourful prints or monochromatic colours for easy pairing.
Suitcases & duffle bags
If your suitcase has been a trusty companion for many trips and is slowly falling apart, it's probably time to switch to a new one. For short weekend trips - duffle bags are perfect for stashing all your necessities.
There's always time for a good read while you're on vacation - pockets of time in the mornings, as you're lounging on the beach, or while you're winding down at night.
Pics or it didn't happen! The best way to capture memories on vacation is obviously photos or videos - and regardless of whether you prefer film, instant, or digital cameras, you'll still be capturing happy moments that you can relive over and over again.
Sunscreen & skincare
Last but not least - a definite non-negotiable. Spending lots of time getting Vitamin D is great, but not without protection! Don't forget to pack your skincare essentials too. Travel sets are perfect for their compact size and range of products.
