If you haven’t already heard, travelling through major airports has been a bit of a disaster this summer. From never-ending lineups to cancelled flights to lost baggage, the start of a relaxing vacation can quickly turn stressful. So whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, packing just the essentials in your carry-on is key to a smooth trip. Plus, ditching checked bags and only bringing a carry-on will help you zoom through the airport easily (especially between connecting flights). Whether you’re heading to the Amalfi Coast, Arizona or Morocco, we all want our trips to be as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

Luckily, the perfect packing routine just takes a little practice, and we’ve gathered some helpful tips to help you make room for all your carry-on essentials. For clothing, choose items with prints that won’t show too many wrinkles and stick to easy-to-pair pieces that can be used to create multiple outfits. As much as we love our platforms, it might be a good idea to leave them at home and go for practical footwear options such as sneakers and flat sandals instead. When it comes to actually packing your luggage, place the items you’ll be wearing on the last day of your trip at the bottom of your bag so you won’t have to dig through the suitcase to find what you need. In terms of beauty products, multi-purpose products such as all-over oils and lip-and-cheek tints can help you narrow down the liquids in your toiletry bag.
