Don't Go on Vacation Without These 5 Things

We've hit prime vacation season, which means that you'll spend more than a few hours this summer packing (and unpacking) your go-to suitcase with all your travel needs. But, while lugging around a bulky bag has always felt like a major nuisance, you might just change your mind. Madewell and luggage company Away have teamed up on a suitcase that's cute, plus it fits everything you need in a manageable way (we know from experience).

So now that you've got the perfect carry-on, what do you pack inside? We tapped Madewell's head of design, Joyce Lee, to share the five essentials she always brings along on her summer trips. Armed with her ideas, you'll be ready to navigate the airport (and look good doing it), and then once you've landed, head straight for the beach looking your best.

Read on to shop the suitcase along with Joyce's picks.
