Summertime (when wanderlust spirits are high) is the prime season for stocking up on
jet-setting essentials. The savviest of travelers not only know how to plan, but they also know how to pack. And since we can't physically map out your trips and fill your suitcases, we crafted a shopping itinerary instead to help streamline the process for you.
We curated a shopping guide filled with
travel accessories that are as smart as they are stylish. Let the 29 items ahead cover your complete wanderlust prep-list from customizable luggage to packing cubes, TSA-approved beauty to cocktail kits, transitional clothes, snack packs, ergonomic tech accessories, and more. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
