1. Have a travel outfit

We'd all like to look a celebrity when traveling but sometimes you just need to be comfortable! Have an outfit that will make you comfortable and where it for both the trip to your destination and back. Also, layering is definitely key as you may be dealing with many different temperatures. 

2. A fun swimsuit

We will let you pick the suit but always pack one in the summer. Even if you aren't sure where your going has a pool you never know!

3. A sun dress or maxi dress

Everybody needs these. They are perfect for hot weather and don't take up a ton of room in your suitcase. Plus a maxi dress can be easily dressed up with the right jewelry and shoes or made very casual. 

4. Accessories

It is all about the accessories when you travel because they can literally transform an outfit. Throw in a few statement necklaces and a great pair of earrings and you have yourself a few different looks. 

5. Jeans

Either shorts or pants. You just can't go wrong with a pair of jeans. 

6. Wedge sandals

In addition to flipflops, bring one pair of fancier sandals that will bring an outfit to the next level. If you are going to a fancy event or restaurant than bring a pair of heels and throw in a pair of Solemates High Heelers! You never know what kind of ground you will be walking on!

7. Workout gear

You never know where you will be walking or maybe you will want to workout at the gym. They make sneakers so cute these days so you can work them into a great outfit. And definitely bring a pair of running shorts or yoga pants. Sometimes you end up wearing your exercise gear the whole day on vacation! 

8. One pair of shorts

Again, you know the length that works for you. Just remember that when they are dressier and longer you can make more of an outfit around them. 

9. Tops

You will need an assortment depending on the weather. Go for colors that are easy to pair with jeans and shorts so maybe a black, white, tan or chambray. 

10. Hat

Round out your look with a trendy hat that looks cool and will also protect you from the sun. 

11. A great bag

You may want to pick your most stylish bag for your purse but pick one that is durable and can hold a lot of stuff.
