Planning a vacation is fun, but there are also plenty of things to think about. When and where to go, who to take, what to see, and most importantly- what to pack? Whether we like it or not, packing takes the most time out of preparing for a getaway. We get stuck in these hypothetical situations of what we’ll need and end up packing the entire closet. This proves to be a problem later because you don’t have enough room for other things you need and you have to carry a heavy suitcase the entire time. What’s more, you don’t even use most of the things you’ve packed. So, before you head for your fall getaway, here is what you need to pack.
1. Outdoor shoes
Try to pack only one pair of shoes for your getaway. The best ones to take are warm, waterproof shoes that will be comfortable to walk in for hours. You don’t want to be stuck in footwear that’s uncomfortable and doesn’t keep your feet warm or dry. That’s grounds for getting sick.
Such shoes are often very universal and can be worn for hiking, strolling around the city, or even going out. Pick a neutral colour like black or brown and they’ll go well with any outfit, too. That way you’ll ensure you always have the perfect pair of shoes ready, regardless of where you’re headed.
2. A leather jacket
Leather jackets are not only stylish but are also pretty effective against the wind. What’s more, they don’t soak up water so you don’t have to worry if you get caught in the rain. That’s why you shouldn’t leave your leather jacket it at home. If you’re worried it won’t be warm enough, pack a warm jumper to wear underneath, and create the perfect fall look.
Not only is a leather jacket practical and takes up little room, but it also makes you look daring and stylish. It can be worn on casual and classier occasions, and won’t require to bring more jackets on your trip.
3. Classic jeans
Though this may seem like an obvious choice, don’t forget your jeans. They can be worn with classier shoes, heels, sneakers, or boots. That means they won’t take up too much space in your suitcase but that you’ll be able to wear them on any occasion.
What’s more, jeans are a rather comfortable piece of clothing and will be suitable for walking or even hiking. Your favourite pair of jeans will be just fine, just don’t forget to check if it’s warm enough for where you’re going.
4. Thigh guards
Any good trip involves a lot of sightseeing. That means you’ll be walking for hours, enjoying the scenery and touristic attractions. That also means that your thighs aren’t going to have much fun, no matter how amazing your time walking around all day is. Constant rubbing can cause a lot of discomforts and can stop you from experiencing your vacation fully.
Thankfully, there’s an easy solution to this problem. Pack thigh guards as they are small pieces of fabric which hug your legs just right. They can be worn under any type of clothing, and stop your things from chafing. What’s more, they’re extremely comfortable and don’t feel too tight or too loose.
5. A vest
Since we’re talking about a fall getaway, it means you’ll need to dress in layers. After all, the weather can be unpredictable with constant changes between hot and cold. That’s why you shouldn’t forget a vest.
Vests are very warm and comfortable, but still leave enough room for you to breathe, making them the perfect outdoor attire for fall. There are a lot of stylish options you can choose from, so you’ll undoubtedly find the perfect vest for your getaway.
As you can see, practicality is the main ingredient to anyone who’s trying to pack efficiently. There’s no use piling up unnecessary things in your suitcase as you’ll just end up stressing yourself out and not enjoying your vacation. Proper packing for a getaway is important because you want to stay light and on your feet so as to get the most out of your trip. We’re confident that you’ll have a great time now that you know exactly what you need.
