Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or heading abroad for the first time, packing the for your vacation is one of the most important parts of the planning process Between accounting for the weather and overall vibe of your locale to the activities you’ll be doing there (and wanted to look good, to boot), you may end up stressed out and staring at an empty instead of actually filling it with the things you need—not the ideal way to kick off your R&R time. There’s no need to miss your flight over this headache-inducing task—below, find chic and functional outfits suited for a variety of different getaway, from camp sites to city sights.

Whether you’re jetting off to Europe or road-tripping in the USA, exploring a big city calls for exceptionally comfortable attire. A lightweight jumpsuit, like this lovely wide-legged version, will keep you cool on hot summer afternoons while offering some extra coverage when temperatures dip later in the evening. Simply pair the piece with your favorite sneakers (your feet will thank you later) and some classic staple accessories for a versatile, wear-all-day look.

If you already live in a concrete jungle, however, you’re probably ready to swap high-rise buildings for towering palm treesc and crystal clear waters. Get in the island mood with a vibrant floral maxi and matching straw bag (perfect for toting all of your beach essentials). Opt for some slip-on sandals you can quickly remove once you reach the sand.

Planning to be a regular at your local community pool this summer? Turn heads in a stunning eyelet dress, polished yet breathable and easy to throw on over an equally exquisite swimsuit. A chunky yellow mule creates a nice pop of color, while a pair of cat-eye tortoiseshell shades will add even more retro flair to your look.

For a vacation that involves activities slightly more rigorous than sipping cocktails, athletic wear earns a spot in your suitcase. Amp up your average gym look with a funky mesh sports bra and colorblock windbreaker to battle the chill on an early morning hike. Tie your hair up with a bandana or use it as neck scarf for a subtle dose of sophistication.
