To properly plan ahead for a summer getaway, always pack the 4 basic essentials that will keep you looking stylish and feeling comfortable in both warm and cool weather (since most places this time of year get hot during the day, and cool off at night). The key to being a smart traveler who always looks coordinated and fashionable is to dress in layers, including a fitted cotton tank top, a cropped open cardigan (so that it fits easily underneath most jackets without for added insulation), a lightweight, easy to pack, wrinkle-resistant jacket (such as a jean jacket), and a colorful scarf (to tie-in the outfit).
