If the words "fuss-free" and "straightforward" are music to your ears, you've come to the right place. Spring and summer can often mean the arrival of difficult trends, from linen dresses that are impossible to keep wrinkle-free to strappy sandals that take years to put on. But if you have little to no patience for tricky pieces, these low-maintenance items will be a savior.
For instance, I've always avoided bringing certain items on trips because I'm afraid that cramming them into my overstuffed suitcase will ruin them—and hats definitely fall into this category. But plenty of brands are making packable versions that don't lose their shape after making the suitcase-stuffed journey to your vacation. Scroll down to shop my three favorite spring items that are the definition of low-maintenance.
Packable Sun Hats
We've all been there: schlepping something delicate through the airport because you didn't want it to get squashed in your suitcase. But you don't have to worry about the sun hats below because they are all designed to be easily packable and will spring back to life when you arrive at your destination.

A lot of delicates are, well, extremely delicate, but not all lingerie has to be. How many times have you glanced at the label of a bra that says "hand-wash" only to roll your eyes and take your chances with the washing machine? Well, now you don't have to because all of the items below are machine-washable. You're welcome.

Honestly, who has the patience for shoes with a billion straps and buckles? Slide sandals are definitely the low-maintenance shoes of choice for celebrities.

We get it: You know you're supposed to re-apply your sunscreen throughout the day, but busy schedules and the fear of ruining makeup often interfere. Powder sunscreens are super low-maintenance because you can throw them in your bag and do a touch-up at any time.
