While Mother Nature may have baited us with a few warm days recently, don't be fooled: It's 100% still winter. And, it seems the only way to actually get your sun-deprived skin a healthy dose of vitamin D is to jet out of town and head somewhere tropical.
But, with every vacay comes the arduous task of packing the perfect getaway bag. So, to avoid any pre-holiday organizational freak-outs, we assembled the ultimate warm-weather packing check list. And, we huddled up with eight jet-setting experts (those people who know how to travel between Fashion Week, photo shoots, and everywhere in between) to put it together. We turned to Glamour’s Rajni Lucienne Jacques, Lucky’s Laurel Pantin, TTHblooms founder and fashion contributor Taylor Tomasi Hill, Eye Swoon creator Athena Calderone, travel publicist Kendall Trainer, model Michele Ouellet, and a few Refinery29 staffers to fill us in on what to take, what not to take, and how to fit it all in a carry-on.
From the latest in swim gear to the best-ever luggage to the one beauty item you never thought you needed, the 15 packing tips ahead are ones to remember. So, if you want to thank us for these foolproof tips, we'll gladly be your plus-one on your next trip — just no middle seat, please.
