My husband and I finally took our first international trip since the inception of the pandemic! It almost felt unreal to do menial things such as going through TSA and walking through the halls of the airport. I am feeling so grateful we are finally able to travel once again as it was a much needed getaway! Hopefully, you are reading this with plans to already jet away somewhere warm this summer. If you are fortunate enough, it is time to get your suitcase in order! I was shopping on Amazon the other day and discovered some really chic, on-trend pieces perfect for your next resort trip! For those who are in need of a travel-worthy wardrobe update, scroll below for 10 items you need in your tropical vacation packing list.

Tropical Slit Dress

Of course, all good beach getaways call for a new dress to spice up your wardrobe. This slit hemline dress is a tropical dream. The detail of the open back and elevated floral print makes for a really elegant look. All you would need to do is to pair with some sandals!

Linen Shorts

When it is really hot out, I like having options that are comfortable above all else. These linen shorts are just that as they are totally understated and easy to layer with anything. You could style these linen shorts as a beach coverup or you could dress it up for a quick vacay outfit on-the-go.

Beaded Phone Crossbody

This is such a cute alternative to a traditional handbag! If you are the type of person who likes to be hands-free, this beaded phone crossbody bag needs to be at the top of your vacation packing list. It’s the perfect petite bag to hold your phone while you travel from the beach to the pool to dinner.

Strappy Heels

These strappy heels will give that extra oomph to any of the outfits you packed for your trip. You can gather the straps and wrap them around your ankle together or you can tie them so they climb up your ankle for more of a statement shoe moment!

Midi Slip Dress

A slip dress is something every girl should have in her closet – much like a trusty pair of denim or a white button up. To me, it’s a look that will never go out of style, having the ability to always stay relevant. Here’s a versatile item to ‘slip’ into your suitcase in case you forget to bring something formal, need something comfortable or want a light bathing suit coverup.

One-Piece Swimsuit

Have a beach trip coming up but hate all the swimsuits you already own? Amazon has so many different bathing suits you could easily add to your next cart. This one-piece is a no-brainer. It is definitely more in the classic, timeless style that you could also double up as a bodysuit for everyday vacation outfits.

Visor Sunglasses

I feel sunglasses are oftentimes overlooked as impactful accessories! However, they can really make or break the overall aesthetic of your outfit and are even more important when it comes to packing for a tropical getaway. These Ray-Ban shades are going to add so much punch to your looks! I love the oversized frames and pink-tinted glasses.

Braided Slides

Aside from a cute pair of strappy heels you can wear to formal dinners, you definitely want something more comfortable as you travel down from your hotel room to the pool. These slides are great for just slipping on and walking out the door.

Pearl Bracelet

Vacation is also a good excuse to try out summery jewelry trends. I thought this gold pearl bracelet was a good option that is both minimal and quirky-chic. The pearls help to add to the vacation aesthetic. Best of all, you can keep it on repeat throughout summer!

Supergoop! Superscreen

While you are treating yourself to a new, beachy wardrobe, might as well add on this beauty product too! This sunscreen has become a phenomenon in terms of HG beauty products. Plus, I feel as if I could always use an extra tube of the Supergoop sunscreen to throw in my beach bag.
