How many times have you actually worn every single item that you packed for a summer vacay? If you're like most of us, the answer is probably never. Instead of lugging a stuffed suitcase (that you probably had to sit on to zip up) across the country only to wear your favorite t-shirt the entirety of your trip, try sticking to the list of travel capsule wardrobe must-haves below. By focusing on key pieces that can be endlessly mixed, matched, and worn for all occasions, we promise you'll be able to enjoy your next getaway with nothing but a carry-on. After all, most of our warm-weather wardrobes consist of lightweight fabrics and barely-there footwear, so it shouldn't be too hard to squeeze everything in, right? Keep scrolling to shop our list of must-have pieces that not only work from coast to coast but from casual to cocktail, too. Opening image: @birkenstock
