Are you ready for spring break? Whether you’re going on a group trip with friends, visiting family or road-tripping somewhere new, hopefully, you have a few sunny days coming up on your calendar.
And while bathing suits and toiletries are probably a few of the first things you throw into your suitcase, when it comes to clothes, you’ll want to keep things low-maintenance— especially if you’re only bringing a carry-on.
That’s why you’ll be thanking yourself for packing wrinkle-free options when you get to your destination! Keep scrolling to check out eight clothing essentials you can shove into your bag without a second thought.
