According to Vogue, the trendiest places to vacation this year range from sunny Malaga, Spain to the chilly Yukon Territory in Canada. If you are jetting off to one of these destinations, you are probably worried about what to pack.

Travel essential clothing is not as easy as packing for a weekend away. You have to consider space and luggage weight limits. Plus, you have to be ready for whatever the weather throws your way.

Lucky for you, GSTQ has all the closet essential pieces you need to vacation in style. Keep reading this guide to find out the everyday luxury clothing items you can not live without for your upcoming vacation.

1. A Wrinkle-Free Piece

Wrinkle-free clothing is the best kind of clothing to pack for vacations. You can pull these items out of your bag, throw them on, and go without having to worry about ironing or steaming. Our Structured-Collar T-Shirt fits the bill here.

It's made from 100% Mercerized Cotton, which resists wrinkles. This shirt features a flattering boxy shape with a split hem and a collared v-neckline. The cap sleeves are extra roomy to keep you cool in the heat.

Pair your GSTQ wrinkle-free shirt with suits, skirts, and pants for a versatile piece that you'll be glad you packed. It would even look great over your colorful beachwear.

2. A Day-to-Night Dress

Your suitcase space is limited. Make the most of it with pieces that can transition from a day of sightseeing to a night out on the town. The ultimate day-to-night piece is the humble dress.

For example, check out our beautiful Asymmetric Dress (it's on sale now!). This dress has a fitted silhouette that will look great under jackets and sweaters during the daytime.

The funky asymmetrical sleeves and high side slit also make it a no-brainer for a chic night out. Just add a pair of pumps and a statement necklace to complete the look.

3. A Statement-Making Hero Piece

The hero piece is that clothing item that allows for ultimate flexible dressing. You can pair it with just about anything in your closet or, in this case, your suitcase.

The GSTQ Leather Wrap Mini Skirt is the perfect hero piece for the modern woman. Unlike a pair of jeans, a leather skirt looks just as good dressed up as it does down.

Add a pair of sneakers, a white t-shirt, and a blazer for the daytime. When the sun goes down, switch to a pair of pumps, an effortless top, and a statement necklace.

4. Airport-Appropriate Pieces

Airport style is the key to flying in comfort, even if you are flying economy. Yet, nailing an effortlessly casual outfit with a chic aesthetic may feel like a major hurdle.

Athleisure is the ultimate airport staple. Try our Fine Rib Knit Short for a comfy yet elevated way to do airport style. These stretchy, smooth shorts offer plenty of coverage and come in four classic colors: pink, black, white, and navy.

Throw on your GSTQ shorts with a button-down shirt and a pair of smart sneakers to complete the look. Or browse our athleisure line to find more pieces to pair with them.

5. An Easy Breezy Set

Sets have been trending for a few years now, and there is a reason for that. Matching sets offer ultimate polished flexibility, plus the ability to mix and match with other items you bring on your trip.

Browse our suits and sets for interchangeable pieces that are perfect for on-the-go dressing. You can throw on one of our matching sets when you are in a rush and know that you're still putting off a chic aesthetic.

Wear your set as is, or just add layers — a sleeveless vest or lightweight jacket. Finish off your outfit with a pair of oversized sunglasses, a chic scarf, and a pair of comfortable loafers.

6. Something to Cozy Up In

Whether you are on the plane or grabbing a late dinner, you will definitely want something to throw over your shoulders if you catch a chill. But you don't want something you have to fuss with; you want comfortable clothes.

The GSTQ Snap Front Cardigan is stylish enough to wear out. Yet, it still gives the feeling of being wrapped in your favorite cozy blanket. Best of all, you can throw it on in a matter of seconds.

If you're looking for a way to elevate your cardigan for day or night, make sure to pick up the matching bralette. Pair it with our leather mini skirt for a comfortable and elevated outfit.

7. A Light Jacket

When your cozy sweater isn't enough, you need a lightweight jacket. You do not want something that is too bulky or takes up more space in your luggage than needed.

Depending on where you are headed, you could go for a lightweight blazer, a puffer vest, or a leather jacket. Our easy-to-wear outerwear and jackets offer something for every climate.

Our sleeveless outerwear options even offer the potential for chic layering, making head-to-toe dressing as breezy as your vacation destination.
