Plan your vacation outfits and take the stress out of packing

In about a month I’m leaving for the seaside. For years I have come to the day of departure super stressed by last minute packing. But not this time. I’ve known better and I want to share my tips with you.

Packing clever – brought to you by Goxip

As a matter of fact, many people spend a lot of time planning the trip. But when it comes to packing, it’s a whole different story. If you usually wait for the last moment to pick their vacation outfits and pack their suitcases, it might be time for a change.

We’re here to share our top tips to plan your vacation outfits so that you always have what to wear no matter the occasion. Packing clever instead of light is our motto. So here’s our advice for vacation outfits you’ll need to pack for your next trip.

Planning vacation outfits

Soft Pants

Lightweight and comfortable pants are a must-have no matter where you go. In fact they can be worn while you travel, while exploring the city, while hiking, while chilling in a cafe. Basically almost on any occasion you can think of. In order to have more combination options, we would advise you to take two pairs of soft pants.

The first one should be in one color like black, navy blue, or some other color you like. While the second pair should be in print. This way, you can wear the former pair with colorful shirts and tops with prints or logos, while the latter pair with simple black or white shirts or tops. If you have more space in your suitcase, one pair of jeans or leggings would be a good idea as well.

Maxi Dresses 

Can you imagine yourself being on a summer vacation without at least one long, maxi dress? Well, we can’t, which is why this is the second essential outfit you should pack for your vacation. In fact, maxi dresses can be worn at any time of the day. From a walk or a cocktail on the beach, to a night out with your friends, maxi dresses will never disappoint you.

You can have a few different options in terms of how you can go about wearing your maxi dress too:

  • If you want all-day comfort, choose a material like jersey
  • For even more comfort, you can go braless and pack a backless maxi dress
  • If you want to elongate your body, then a high-low dress would be the perfect option
  • In order to wear a maxi dress all day long without getting it wrinkled, choose it in rayon.

Goxip’s maxi dresses come in many different styles, prints, fabrics, and silhouettes. Choose the one that catches your eye for your upcoming vacation!

Crop Tops

The third staple to include in your vacation outfits is tops. Crop tops are always on trend and can be worn with any type of pants and skirts.

This flattering piece will look good on all body types, from skinny to curvy. All you need is the right combination. Crop tops and soft pants are a match made in heaven when it comes to vacation outfits, and at Goxip there are more than plenty to choose from.

Jacket, sweater, or a cardigan

Wherever you go this summer, it might get chilly during the evenings. So you need to be ready if cold weather does end up surprising you. That’s why a jacket, sweater, or cardigan should always be included in your vacation outfits.

However, if you are positive that chilly weather is not to be expected, a big scarf would be a great idea just in case. It doesn’t take up much space and it can be perfectly combined with a maxi dress as an accessory.

Comfortable footwear 

Comfortable footwear, with an emphasis on comfort, is a must for any vacation. Shoes take the most space in a suitcase. So you should choose only a couple of pairs that will work with the outfits you decide to bring.

Comfortable wedges or sandals are some of the essential summer vacation shoes that every woman needs to pack. Easy to walk around in, perfect for skirts, pants, shorts, jeans, and dresses. And great for both daytime and nighttime activities as well. If you do a lot of walking and sightseeing on your upcoming trip, sneakers are a must. It would be best if they were in a neutral color so that you can combine them with most of your outfits.

Finally, sometimes a girl wants to dress up and feel sexy during a night out, so what better shoes to bring than pumps or heels? Again, our advice is to choose a neutral color so that you can combine them with most of your evening wear.


Accessories give you the opportunity to create a plethora of different outfits, even if you want to pack light. Hats, sunglasses, handbags, and jewelry are all great options! Just make sure to consider bright colors that can shape your outfit and accentuate your personal style.

Final Tips

Packing for your summer vacation should be a fun activity instead of a boring task. If you follow our advice, we guarantee that you’ll have both the perfect vacation outfits for your trip and lots of fun while choosing what to take. All you need to do is pack at least one day in advance, use this article as your guide, and of course, have fun while doing it. Have fun, and safe travels!

    The packing guide is spot on. We all usually end up wearing pretty much the same pieces for the entire trip but comfy shoes are a MUST!

    This is seriously a huge problem for me, even when I go on vacation. That I have a LOT of clothes when I travel for work is kind of a necessity, but on vacation I end up wearing the same pieces for like 7 days with small alterations. Learning to pack smarter is something I totally need to do!

    Omg I seriously could not agree with you more. I recently started pre-planning my outfits and since I did my trips have been so stress free!! I always take photos of my outfits beforehand and keep them in my phone for easy reference. It’s honestly life changing!
