What to Pack for Summer Vacay: 10 Pieces, 5 Days

There’s no better time than summer vacation to update your wardrobe. Let us show you how to pack like a pro for a photo-worthy vacation to remember.

#1 Select Your Swimwear

Whether you’re taking off on a tropical vacation and will spend days by the beach, or simply relaxing at a hotel resort pool, you’ll need to pack a few swimsuits for your stay! We love sexy swim pieces with extra sassy details, like cut outs or caged lace-up straps.

#2 Consider Comfortable Sandals

No matter what destination you travel to, summer is all about sandals. Stay comfortable yet fabulous in flat embellished sandals or low wedge espadrille sandals.

#3 Decide On Dresses

Casual summer dresses with trendy prints are great to slip into during a summer getaway! Whether you’re a mini dress type of gal or love flowy maxi dresses, they’re all cute, easy to wear, and always photo ready.

#4 Choose Cozy Cover Ups

Lightweight and semi-sheer cover ups perfectly pair with swimwear, and they’re absolutely necessary for do-it-all travelers who plan to quickly take off from the beach or pool to their next destination. They not only provide extra coverage when needed but add a stylish touch to create the perfect beach, pool, or daytime outfit!

#5 Pick Out Trendy T-Shirts

You can never pack enough basic tees for vacation! Whether you layer them under a dress or tuck them into skirts, jeans, or shorts, shirts go with anything and are great backups in case of an emergency! From unsightly coffee spills to sweat stains, be prepared for anything with a few extra tees.

#6 Pack Basic Bodysuits

Bodysuits are always cute and comfortable, and they always give you an effortless tucked-in look when worn with any high-waist bottoms. If you go a little too hard in your swimwear, the right bodysuit can also serve as a backup one piece for the pool!

#7 Settle On Simple Shorts

Beat the summer heat with your favorite pair of shorts! Show off those rockin’ legs and your natural tan (or store-bought tan, we don’t judge!) with a basic pair of denim jean shorts or paper bag shorts in a trendy summer gingham print.

#8 Opt for Everyday Jeans

You can’t go wrong when you bring along a wardrobe staple! Denim jeans are year-round necessities that can be dressed up or down, and versatility is key when packing for vacation.

#9 Select Stylish Jackets

Need to upgrade from a cover up when the cool night breeze hits? Go for a trendy, lightweight jacket that won’t overheat you. We love a wild animal print nylon jacket for any outdoor adventure, or a classic moto or leather jacket to throw over your cute vacay outfit.

#10 Bring Along Carryall Bags

Whether you need a bag to take to the beach, or a bag to carry all of your daytime essentials, this accessory is a vacation must-have! Stay in the summer groove by opting for straw bags, a backpack in a bold print or color, or even a large girly duffle bag for those that need extra space for souvenirs!
