Time to get shopping. 

August 18, 2016

No matter what type of trip you’re taking—a romantic getaway or a family vacation—or when you’re going (spring break, or a wintry weekend away?) one of the most stressful parts of travel can be just deciding what you need to pack.

Don’t worry: we’ve got you covered. For every season and occasion, T+L editors have compiled comprehensive lists of all the must-have items you need to squeeze into that carry-on. (No carry-on? We’ve picked the best of those for you, too).

From surprisingly stylish fanny packs (not kidding) to hiking shoes and boots for your next big adventure, these are the trendy, timeless, airport security-compatible, and completely necessary items every good traveler should have on hand.
