As winter drags on (here’s to you, January), we find ourselves drifting into warm-weather daydreams: basking on the beaches of Costa Rica with a good book, waking up to a sunrise surf in Mexico, napping in the California sunshine…whoa. Annnd, we’re back.
Now that you’ve got the trip planned (at least mentally), what to pack? Our advice: Bring less. Although it might feel right in the moment to throw in a few more things just in case, these classic pieces should do the trick.
1. A skinny pant. A slim silhouette lends itself to multiple shoe options and does the whole day-to-night thing.
2. A weekender. This one’s obvious but begs repeating. A substantial leather weekend tote just makes a trip feel more luxurious.
4. A striped sweater. For the plane, train or car; for over a swimsuit; for over anything, really.
5. A swimsuit. Of course.
