Whether your summer vacation involves a tropical island, a mountain getaway, or a city adventure, we've got you covered with the ultimate packing list to make your trip unforgettable. From the best swimsuits for summer to chic swimwear accessories, our guide has everything you need to enjoy your sun-drenched holiday. And don't just take our word for it – we put this list to the test on our recent getaway for The Sisters Collection photoshoot, where we modeled our new mix and match swimwear. So rest assured, our tips are tried and true!

  1. Outfits: When packing your outfits, prioritizing comfort and versatility will help you make the most of your trip. Choose a selection of lightweight tops such as tank tops, t-shirts, and loose blouses, which you can pair with shorts, skirts, or trousers. Versatile sundresses are also great for transitioning from day to night. And don’t forget pajamas!

  2. Undergarments: When packing undergarments, opt for breathable fabrics to stay comfortable in the heat. Nude or seamless options are ideal for wearing under light-colored or sheer clothing. You’ll also want to pack a few pairs of comfortable and supportive bras or bralettes that suit different outfit styles, and a few pairs of socks.

  3. Swimwear: As long as you're traveling when it's warm, pack at least one swimsuit just in case. Even if lounging by the pool isn't on your itinerary, you may find that you need a rest day from the jet lag, and the perfect place to spend it is by the water! This keeps you from having to spend quite a bit of money on a swimsuit at a store in a different country, or worse, a hotel gift shop, where you have limited options and a high price tag. Check out our mix and match swimwear (link 2) to find the best swimsuits for summer!

  4. Toiletries: Depending on your accommodation, you may not need to bring all your toiletries. Hotels usually provide shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner, but if you're renting a place, you'll need to pack these items yourself. Regardless of where you stay, remember to bring any additional necessities like contact lenses and solution, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, mouthwash, facial cleansers, razors, hairspray, brushes, deodorant, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, hair tools, and makeup.

  5. Shoes: When packing for a trip, choose neutral shoes that can be worn with multiple outfits to save space. Bring a pair of hiking boots or sneakers for physical activities and heels or wedges for dinner. If you’ll be hitting the beach or pool, some comfortable slides are always a good idea – shop our accessories page to see our options. Packing minimally and focusing on versatility will help keep your luggage light!

  6. Medications: If you take medication, make sure you pack enough for your trip. You'll also want to bring pain and cold/allergy meds, and any supplements or vitamins you take.

  7. Electronics and Chargers: If you are packing an e-book reader, tablet, or laptop, make sure to pack the chargers for those along with your phone charger. If you plan on hiking or exercising, you may want to bring headphones or a watch.

Your getaway essentials will vary depending on your trip, but this is a good start to your packing list. Now that you’re armed with the perfect list, you're ready to embrace the sun and make unforgettable memories on your summer vacation. Whether you're lounging on sandy shores, trekking through lush landscapes, or immersing yourself in local culture, these summer getaway essentials will ensure you have a stress-free and fashionable vacation!
