While we have visions of our fantasy travel wardrobes, the reality of an overstuffed suitcase can wreak havoc on our adventures. This Summer, we're vowing to pack light and head out with only the essentials in tow. That doesn't mean there isn't room for a cool crop of clothes or accessories; we're just being a bit more mindful of the journey (and any excess baggage!). Inside we've culled a few of the necessary ingredients for a styled and efficient getaway wardrobe. From a perfect pair of shades to the ultimate in glam-on-the-go dresses, your Summer packing list starts here. Click on to see and shop a few of our must-have carry-on items.
