The Savviest Spring Break Travel Essentials

Even for those no longer on a regimented school-vacation schedule, breaking up winter with some OOO time in warmer weather is still a key March move. So, with spring break on the brain, we crafted a guide to cover one painstaking component of scheming for sunshine-filled escapes (when it's freezing outside and you can't feel your toes): What the hell to pack...
While you suss out destinations, we'll worry about the warm-weather checklist that's actually essential. The savviest packing approaches are ones that do the maximum with the minimum by choosing compact, climate-strategic to dual-purpose and layer-able items. Think foldable sunhats, transitional travel wraps to carryalls turned clutches, chic slip-on sneakers, tinted-lip sunscreens, and relaxation-enhancing snacks. The smart, stylish, and essential packing solutions ahead are spring-break plan-approved (pseudo or not). Scroll on to lighten up your luggage load and tighten up your trips for optimal enjoyment.
