2024 Vacation Essentials: Must-Have Trending Items You Need for the Ultimate Look

Christmas holidays are over, and if you’re already daydreaming about your upcoming spring break vacation, you’re not alone! As the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, it’s the perfect time to plan your sunny escape. To help you make the most of your spring break, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide on fashion trends and vacation essentials that will keep you stylish and prepared for your adventure. Whether you’re hitting the beach, exploring a new city, or simply relaxing, we’ve got you covered!

Packing Smart: Vacation Essentials

Before diving into the latest fashion trends, let’s start with the essentials you’ll need to pack for a successful spring break:


Protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays with a high SPF sunscreen. Unless you have extremely sensitive skin, anything over 30 SPF is not more beneficial. The SPF rating only refers to UVB rays. An SPF 15 sunscreen blocks 93% of UVB radiation, and SPF 30 blocks 97%. After that, the difference in protection is small. SPF 50 blocks 98%, and SPF 100 stops 99% of UVB rays from reaching your skin. Instead, aim for a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against UVA as well. UVA is present in much higher levels in sunlight than UVB and is a major cause of skin aging like wrinkles, freckles and sunspots. It also plays a role in causing some skin cancers. The best way to prevent sunburn is to limit sun exposure between 10 am and 3 pm when the rays are strongest. Reapply sunscreen after swimming, even if it says it’s waterproof. Stay in the shade if possible and wear a hat. Not only will it protect your head and face, but also provides a fashion statement!



Ensure you have your passport, ID, and any necessary travel documents. If travelling from Canada to the US or Carribean, your passport must be valid up until the date of your intended departure. Read the regulations here which includes NEXUS members. For travelling to Europe and most other countries, your passport needs to be valid for 6 months past the date of your return. Check the travel advice and advisory for the country you’ll be travelling to here. Ensure your passports are valid way ahead of time in case they are expired or due to expire to avoid being turned away at the gate. It happened to a friend of mine, and their whole trip to Italy got cancelled. Not only that, their airfare and hotel weren’t reimbursed! If your passport is set to expire in a few weeks, you can a renewal in as little as a week by providing your trip details and paying an additional fee.


Opt for a stylish yet practical backpack to carry your essentials. Backpacks are a great replacement to a carry on luggage, or if you’re travelling extra light and don’t want to check in a suitcase. Travel & Leisure’s top pick was the Cotopaxi Allpa 35L Travel Pack

Reusable tote bags are great for shopping or carrying your beachwear and towels. I’ve designed some chic tote bags here


  • Water Bottle: Stay hydrated throughout your trip with a reusable water bottle. I love this Back to Life Sport Bottle from Lululemon which is available in 8 colours!
  • Sunglasses and Hat: Shield your eyes from the sun with stylish shades and a wide-brimmed hat. Get these adorable and chic straw hats at an incredible price!
  • First Aid Kit: Include basics like band-aids, pain relievers, and any necessary medications. This compact kit is all you need:
  • Entertainment: Download books, music, or podcasts for in-flight or downtime entertainment on your smart phone or tablet, or both! There are several books you can download for free from Kindle Membership
  • Chargers and Adapters: Ensure you can keep your devices charged and connected. If you’re travelling outside US and Canada, ensure your adapters meet the requirements for the country you’re visiting, as the voltage is higher in most other countries. If you’re unsure, you can get dual voltage adapters that will adjust accordingly such as this one
  • Reusable Tote Bag: Handy for shopping or carrying items during your travels. But don’t make it boring- go all out with bold colours!
