In a perfect world, impending vacations wouldn’t involve any type of stress. With the modern-life necessities of wrapping up work projects and prepping for travel, though, a bit of stormy weather before sailing off on smooth seas is unavoidable. The one thing that shouldn’t add to your worries? Packing a suitcase.

Here, five essential items to pack the next time you’re getting ready to head out-of-office.

1

A shoe that works for day and night

Unless you’re checking bags, it’s important to be thoughtful about how many shoes you’re bringing. Only pick pairs that pull double-duty: A wedge is comfortable enough to be worn for long hours during the day, but still feels dressy for dinner or drinks.

Comfortable jeans

For the majority of dressers, blue jeans are the cornerstone of our wardrobe. Don’t forget about them when packing for off-duty days either. Bring a silhouette you love that can be worn multiple times before hitting its stretched-out max.

A bag that will fit all the essentials

The wisest size for your vacation bag is one Goldilocks would approve: not too big, not too small. Pick a fairly roomy option that can be worn crossbody to free up your hands. Bonus points if you go with a print or color that’s bolder than what you might ordinarily use in real life.

A versatile skirt

Two-piece dressing is the best way to get more of the proverbial bang for your buck when packing. Tuck one into your suitcase and plan on wearing with different tops or over a bathing suit (to the pool or as a standalone outfit).

5

Sneakers for fitness and fashion

Pack a pair of sneakers even if your vacation won’t involve hitting the hotel gym. The rise of athleisure means they feel fashion-forward and can be worn in place of sandals or flats. Plus, you’ll be set if a rogue hike or walking tour pops up on the itinerary.
