You've booked your hotel and bought your plane tickets. Now comes the hard part: what to pack for your beach vacay.
Even when you make a complete packing list, it's inevitable that there will be last-minute add-ons that will keep your suitcase from actually zipping shut. And even though vacation clothing tends to be small—sandals and bathing suits take up far less space than sweaters and pants. However, the need for options tends to end up undoing any mental editing and outfit-planning that happened while daydreaming in that last pre-vacation staff meeting.
So, whether you're planning ahead for an upcoming trip or scrambling to get things together before you jet off tomorrow, we've broken down the spring traveling must-haves you simply cannot leave home without. The (major) key to packing smart and packing light is focusing on versatility—it's what makes packing a breeze after all. We've compiled our favorite essentials for any seaside escape and guarantee that when it comes time to pack, you’ll be done and ready to go in no time (and, hopefully, in one bag.) Bon voyage!
