Lo and behold, another spring season is upon us and with it, a renewed interest in getaways and holiday destinations where the sun shines brighter and the birds chirp louder. But daydreaming alone isn’t going to get you anywhere. You need to snap out of your reverie because planning a vacation in a warm climate is not the same as planning a trip to the local pool. So, if you’re having trouble deciding what to pack, here are five essential items that you should definitely bring with you on your next spring getaway.
We know this is not exactly a ground-breaking idea but you don’t need to revolutionise the fashion industry while you’re out and about enjoying the warm weather and basking in the sun. What you need are some core pieces that can keep you cool and that you can mix and match without putting too much effort – and a few basic T-shirts just happen to fit the bill perfectly.
A simple t-shirt is a very versatile item that can be styled with literally any other piece of clothing in your wardrobe. So, when you’re in doubt or when you’re having a lazy day as it so often happens when you’re vacationing, having an assortment of breezy T-shirts you can rely on can make life so much easier.
It’s not a proper spring holiday until you slip some shorts on. Chances are your spring gateway also involves a bit of water fun. So, if you’re getting ready for a trip at sea or some relaxing days by the pool, you should obviously pack a set of swimwear in your suitcase.
Swim shorts come in a wide variety of colours, patterns and styles, from standard and bulldog to setter or dachshund, so you can choose the ones that suit you best. But regardless of the style you prefer, a pair of men's designer swim briefs is a holiday staple you should definitely bring along.
Holidays are all about comfort, but one shouldn’t neglect style either. Since you’ll probably want to visit and explore all the amazing places that your destination has to offer, you’ll have to bring comfortable footwear that is suited for all-day walking.
You may be thinking of sandals, but we suggest packing a pair of airy suede loafers since they are more adaptable and work well with casual and formal wear, so you can transition from daytime to evening look with ease.
When it comes to accessories, things couldn’t be any simpler. Some may argue that watches are a must-have accessory for men. Sure, a nice watch can elevate any outfit, but do you really want to keep track of time while you’re on holiday?
When the sun is high and the breeze is blowing, we can guarantee that a classic pair of shades is going to be a lot more useful and look much better than any expensive watch. Pair them up with a hat and an SPF 50+ for extra sun protection and you’re good to go.
Your next spring getaway might be your best one yet, so make sure you make the most of it by packing these essential items and getting vacation-ready.
