One of the most challenging aspects of traveling is deciding what to pack. Because of suitcase weight restrictions, it’s important to maximize the space of your luggage while still ensuring you have outfits for every occasion. From women’s blouses to designer shoes, Marilyn’s, a leading clothing boutique in Naples, FL, has everything you need for your summertime getaway. Here, they share tips for practical travelers.

WOMEN’S BLOUSES AND MORE: A Guide to Packing for Summer Trips

What Types of Staples Do I Need?

No matter where you’re jetting off to, you can’t go wrong with fashion fundamentals like white and black pants and tops with varying sleeve lengths. By selecting a neutral color family, you can continue to mix and match your staple items, alternating outfits to ensure variety.

Depending on your destination, you may also wish to pack a couple of versatile dresses, which can be worn casually or for formal occasions, as well as denim shorts or jeans. If you have the room to spare, a few statement tops in either prints or a bold color, can round out your vacation wardrobe for even more contrast.

Which Types of Accessories Should I Pack?

In terms of shoes, a neutral dress shoe or sandal can be paired with virtually any outfit you put together. Black is an excellent color option for shoes, but you may also wish to bring along another summer footwear option, such as a pair of nude wedges. It’s also easy to accessorize and dress up outfits like black dresses or tops with bold statement jewelry. The beauty of jewelry is that it doesn’t take up much suitcase space, yet has the ability to completely transform an outfit.

Large scarves and hats are also ideal for travel. Wide-brim hats are both fashionable and functional for sun protection at the beach, while scarves give you yet another option for upgrading outfits. Some scarves can double as beach cover-ups, but they also come in handy for staying comfortable in air-conditioned restaurants.
