5 Essentials Every Woman Needs for a Girl's Trip

For many of us, our favorite people to travel and share new experiences with are our best friends. While making memories on family vacations or even work trips are great, getting out of dodge with your best girlfriends is a much-needed break from the daily grind. Not having to impress your partner, look after your kiddos or dress professionally for colleagues. If you have a girl's vacation on the books, let what you pack be the least of your worries. Make sure you have the following essentials in your travel bag along with your usual must-haves like passport and phone chargers.

Midi or Maxi?

Whether you feel more comfortable in a midi dress that hits mid-calf or a maxi dress that hangs to the floor,  you want this versatile piece in your suitcase. The great thing about a longer-length dress is it can work for daytime or nighttime. Since you're likely to pack multiple women's shoes for your trip, you can easily change the tone of your dress with a switch of footwear. Wear easy sandals or flip-flops during the day for a more casual look, and elevate your look in the evening with a higher heel or wedge and a change of jewelry. Not to mention, midi and maxi dresses are flattering on virtually every body type.

A Sun Hat

Protecting the skin on your face is essential if you're headed somewhere warm and sunny (which you likely are). Our facial skin is much more delicate than the skin on the rest of our bodies. Prevent minor issues like sunburn and unwanted freckles to bigger issues like premature skin aging or melasma with a stylish sun hat. If you're not into an oversized sun hat style, visors do the same thing if they're more your speed. Either way, protect your face in style. Don't forget a pair of sunglasses either to protect the even more delicate skin around your eyes!

Cute Carry All

Just because you're leaving your kids back home (if you're a mother), you still want your daily necessities on hand when you're out with your girls. Store everything from snacks and reusable water bottles to souvenirs you pick up along the way in a cute tote or carry-all. You don't have to sacrifice style for comfort either, as you can find these bags in leather, canvas, and as printed or plain as you prefer. 

Simple Sets

Many of us deal with decision fatigue in our day-to-day lives to the point it's becoming a national crisis. Vacation is about leaving that type of stress behind, so get dressed effortlessly for your adventures with matching sets. Depending on your age, sets may evoke memories of your childhood, but they are back in serious style these days. You can also purchase sets at all levels, from dressy sets that work for high-end restaurants to cool and comfortable sets on the athleisure end of the spectrum. They're an easy way to take one more thing off your plate but look cool as a cucumber doing so. 

Statement Accessories 

Maybe you already dress from a capsule wardrobe and understand the importance of accessories when it comes to changing your aesthetic or making a statement. Perhaps you want to pack more like a minimalist on this vacation and want to get multiple wears out of one piece. Statement-making accessories are your best friend, then! A simple scarf can work as a belt, head wrap, and of course, around your neck! Take the look of a casual dress up several notches with a big and bold necklace and a swipe of red lipstick. You never know what you and your girls will get into, so arrive prepared with accessories to match your mood or excursion. 

If you have been putting off taking a vacation with your friends, organize and book one for your mental and emotional well-being. One of the best things to promote good health is staying socially connected, so get out of town with your best girls, make memories, and toast to good health! Since vacations are about relieving stress, let what you pack be the least of your worries by adding all the above-mentioned items to your packing list. Happy Trails!
