It’s been a while since you’ve headed on a vacation—don’t worry, most of us are in the same boat! Now that we’re finally embracing a world that’s slowly opening back up, many people are looking to satiate their wanderlust once again and embarking on exciting trips.
Ready to start traveling once more? Here are 7 key things you’ll need to make life so much easier:
1) A Reliable Carry-On
Your resolution for post-pandemic travel should be to travel light and efficiently. A trusty carry-on bag with plenty of space and compartments to organize will help make travel a breeze.
2) Go-To Travel Outfit
A comfortable and stylish transit outfit is essential to kicking off your vacation on the right foot. Traveling can be jam-packed with activity, so you’ll want to wear something that’s comfortable in the car or on the plane but can also work for grabbing a drink or hitting the town once you’ve reached your destination.
3) A Platform That Makes Planning A Breeze
It’s been a while since you’ve hit the road, so why not make it easy on yourself and let pro travelers guide your next vacation itinerary?
4) Portable Hair Styling Tools
Powerful hair styling tools can come in small packages. Mini hair dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can help keep your hair looking chic on the go while taking up minimal space in your luggage.
5) A Versatile Dress
One trick to packing like a pro is valuing versatility and function in the clothes you bring. Choose a color palette for your trip and pack items you can mix and match and dress up or down so you can make the most out of a few essential pieces.
6) Chic & Comfy Shoes
Shoes take up a lot of space in luggage, so I tend to pick 2 or 3 pairs that I’ll wear throughout my trip. Nude, black, and white shoes tend to be the best, as you can mix and match them with anything you pack. My favorite travel tip: I always wear my biggest shoes on the plane so they don’t take up room in my suitcase.
7) A Multi-Purpose Clutch
As the name suggests, clutches come in clutch during travel adventures. Not only are they stylish purse options for nights out, but they can double as a pouch to keep makeup, jewelry, or other small items organized while packing.
