Ladies/ What to bring

What you can bring on the plane

I have crafted this unique hub about travel and packing tips for teens to maximize your fun time, and cut out the worry of what to pack for your trip. So you are going on a trip and your worried about what to pack, it happens to many people. You want to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe for the vacation but wait you need to have some extra spending money! Depending on the kind of trip you take will also require thought into what to pack as well.

These ideas are for up to a two week trip, and its somewhere warm preferably, during spring or summer. Items to pack vary on time of year and in high desert areas you would want one warmer jacket, and for colder climates at night, you would want to layer, shirt & jackets with scarf.


Guys / Gals Shoes

  • 1 pair of comfortable tennis shoes for walking and hiking
  • 1 pair comfortable sandals or flip flops for beaches and playing (Note do not go out and buy a new pair and think you will break them in you will be faced with blisters and its not fun.) The best flip flops are Reef Brand in my opinion. The old surfer dudes used to wear them 24/7
  • Ladies, optional pair of corked heels or platforms are fun for evening out and you wont sink your heel in grass or dirt or other.

Attire recommendations for the ladies

  • 5 shirts one or two of them tanks
  • 3 Jeans
  • 2 skirts and or shorts (khaki gives you more choices for top colors)
  • 1 tank dress
  • 1 evening dress
  • 1 little black dress
  • 4 pajamas ( 2 p.j's per week)
  • 10 pair of undies
  • 5 Bra's
  • 2 scarfs these can go with the little black dress or dress up your tank dress and cuts a chill if the night air is semi cold.
  • 1-2 belts
  • 2 purses
  • 1 clutch
  • 1 light jacket wind breaker
  • 10 socks
  • 2 swimsuits, bikini and one piece

Many people buy at least two or three tops, a dress and or a bathing suit, while visiting your destination, so plan to add this to your wardrobe as well.

Navy Blazer goes with everything even jeans!

    I thought I left a comment here earlier. These are very good tips. Especially, the one about the fake wallet makes so much sense.
