Verte Luxe Fashion: Vacation Packing Tips

Summer is officially upon us! Now that the world is opening back up, we can finally schedule our 2021 vacation plans. Whether you’re gearing up for a tropical oasis or a mountaineering adventure, packing for your summer travel plans can be a serious hassle. How are you supposed to fit everything into your carry-on?

To help kick your travels off to a great start, we’re sharing four summer vacation packing tips below.

1. Plan Outfits Ahead

If you love to dress the part for every occasion, then chances are you’re an over-packer. The best way to make space in your luggage is to plan your outfits ahead of time. Take a look through your itinerary and plan an outfit for every activity. By scheduling your looks, you won’t be throwing things you don’t need into your suitcase last minute. So plan ahead to skip the stress and save room for souvenirs!

2. Pack Versatile Pieces


If you find yourself in a pinch and don’t have time to plan your outfits ahead of time, make sure to pack your most versatile pieces. Items you can style in a variety of ways throughout your trip will make it easy to pack light. We love the Sage Larock Leggings ($100) because they can be worn for adventure activities like hiking or styled with a casual outfit for lunch or a night out. TIP: Locate a laundromat near your hotel before your trip so you can wash garments between wears.

3. Use the Rolling Method

Is there anything worse than bringing your favorite dress on vacation, then pulling it out of your luggage to find it creased and wrinkled? To avoid this from happening, use the “rolling method.” This simply means folding your clothes into tight rolls rather than flat squares. Not only will this keep your clothes looking fresh, but this method is also thought to create more space in your suitcase.

4. Wear Your Sun Hat on the Plane

No summer vacay is complete without a gorgeous summer hat. However, these can often take up excess space in your luggage. Instead, wear it on the plane to save room. The Andeana Hats Tika Hat ($185) is perfect for travel because it’s equally as comfortable as it is cute. Plus, it’s 100% handmade in Puru with Earth-conscious living in mind.
