When packing for a trip, every inch of your suitcase is prime real estate. Frequent travelers know that it's important to commit to not over-packing. With a tight edit of travel essentials, items like an easy to pack bag, day-to-night dress, plus a chic bathing suit that works on and off the beach help cut down on just how much you have to stuff into your suitcase. This will leave room for the straw bags, spices, and maybe a souvenir or two that you plan on buying.

Below are some travel essentials that you may want to consider when planning for your trips this spring and summer season.

Smart Suitcase

Not all bags are made equal. And in the case of luggage startup Away, their selection of sleek, elegant suitcases are a cut above the rest. Able to hold a surprising amount of items without compromising compact design or durability, they've quickly become a favorite of Millennial jet-setters. They also come equipped with a built-in combination lock, 360-degree spinner wheels, and an unbreakable polycarbonate shell.

Comfortable Shoes

When on a trip, the last thing you want to worry about is aching feet, which can quickly sour your experience and prevent you from exploring your destination. Smart packers know that it isn't the wisest to bring five different pairs of shoes, so the key is to bring one or two reliable pairs. The variety of flats and slip-ons showcased on Woman Within can be taken from the cobblestoned streets of Prague and Paris to a candle-lit dinner in Los Angeles or Charleston. Featuring padded insoles and stable heel technology they prove that style and comfort can definitely go hand-in-hand. 


Gone are the days when earphones were just these little boring black pods that you didn't give a second thought to. Now, many earphones look as good as they sound. For instance, the assortment of earphones on Bose are designed with noise-canceling technology to "shut out the world" and keep ambient noise at bay — perfect for getting uninterrupted sleep on the plane or at your hostel.


Sunglasses are an absolute essential, whether you're out and about on the streets of New York or lounging on a Caribbean beach. While your staple pair will do just fine, there's nothing like a statement shape to liven up even the plainest of outfits. Some of the season’s trendiest silhouettes include pointed cat-eyes and extended wayfarers.

Double Duty Scarf

The temperatures may be warming up, but don’t retire your favorite winter accessory just yet — especially when you're on the go. Who What Wear demonstrates how to wear scarves for spring by pairing them with year-round pieces like bootcut jeans and a jacket. You can also wear it as a sarong, which makes it a versatile piece for travel. 

Tinted Balm

Nourish and protect your lips at the same time with a tinted balm that contains SPF. The pop of color means you can skip the lipstick and still look photo-ready for all your travel photographs, while also making sure that your lips are moisturized and protected.


Plane rides and hotter temperatures tend to suck your skin dry, but that's nothing that a good moisturizer can't combat. This Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre is a cult classic, containing aloe vera and shea butter to deliver a dose of nourishment to your skin. It's also a godsend for colder climates. 

Enjoy your traveling this season!!
