PACKING TIPS FOR YOUR SUMMER GETAWAY
Now that we’ve covered the best luggage to help you get where you need to go in the utmost of style and function for your summer vacay, it’s time to jump over to the next step – packing. Whether you’re a chronic over-packer (we know we are!) or err on the side of caution when picking what to bring, how you organize your suitcase can make all the difference when you’re heading out for a summertime adventure.
Not only does having everything organized in your luggage help keep you feeling less stressed and frenzied, but also it helps you to make sure that you have everything that you need to bring with you, too!
Without further ado, here are our top picks to help keep your luggage totally with it and organized for your summer adventuring.
THE PACKING CUBE
First up on our list is our absolute favorite option – the packing cube. These babies are perfect for keeping everything clean and separated from Point A to Point B (and Point C and D and so forth). Packing cubes are typically designed with a breathable fabric and feature a zip around or snap closure to safely secure anything and everything in your suitcase. Some even come with luxe features, like mesh windows so that you can see everything you’ve packed or waterproof fabrics to keep everything safe, no matter what the weather.
Here are our favorite options for packing cubes to help get you inspired and shopping.

These babies are much like packing cubes, although roomier, with a breathable fabric and a secure closure to help keep your things organized and separated while on-the-go. Many of these come with additional features, including additional pockets, locks at the side and mesh windows.
