SPRING: Lightweight Jacket, Long Pants, T-shirt, Cardigan, Sunglasses
Spring can be one of the trickier seasons to pack for. Right off the bat, you’ll want a lightweight jacket and/or a cardigan to bring with you as you’re out exploring for the day since a chill can sneak up on you at any moment. Usually, you’ll want longer pants like jeans as opposed to shorts, and a short-sleeve T-shirt as your go-to casual outfit.
SUMMER: Tank top, T-Shirt, Shorts, Sandals, Sneakers, Sunglasses
Most likely, you are going to be rather warm on any summer vacation you’re taking! Pack your favorite tank top and shorts as your staple outfit, and play it safe by bringing both sneakers and sandals. Even if you’re indulging in a beach vacation, you might want to throw on comfier shoes for going out into town or going for a longer walk. Also be sure to grab a short-sleeve shirt as well, if you ever want your shoulders covered and extra protected from the sun.
FALL: Light Sweaters, Jacket, Jeans, Sneakers, Boots
Boots are a definite must-bring for a fall trip. Try to grab a sturdy, durable pair that can endure any kind of weather, and will also look dressed up for spending the day out and about. Jeans are my go-to pants for the fall seasons, as denim screams “fall” to me. Bring a couple of your favorite light sweaters and a jacket. If there’s room leftover, a short sleeve shirt is a good idea as well in case of any slightly warmer days.
WINTER: Warm Layers, Heavier Sweaters, Jeans, Snow/Waterproof Boots, Fleece Lined Leggings or Athletic Pants
Winter is certainly the hardest season to pack minimally for! Break out your heavier sweaters for those extra chilly days, and fleece-lined pants to keep you cozy in low temperatures. Make sure that whatever boots you bring are waterproof, as you might be dealing with snow and slush and wouldn’t want them to get ruined on your trip. Warm layers are key, and don’t forget your warmest, coziest winter jacket!
