While most of us eagerly wait for our summer vacations—there’s one thing no-one looks forward to: packing.
It’s is the most dread-inducing part of any summer getaway—especially when you’re travelling to a new spot with no clue of what to expect. It’s easy to get wrapped up into packing a dozen wardrobe options, but irrespective of where you’re going, there are a couple must-pack items you just can’t forget.
To make the packing process easier for you, MILLE rounds up a few essentials you’ll want to add to your list.
Proenza Schouler Belt Bag
Keep your belongings safe by opting for a belt bag rather than a traditional purse. This one can be worn around the shoulder and has an oversized strap and a zipped main compartment to keep all your things secure as you stroll through any city.

Prada Luggage Tag
Nothing is more anxiety inducing than scanning through hundreds of bags on the luggage belt after a long-haul flight, praying that yours hasn’t disappeared on to the wrong flight. Save your time and cortisol levels by marking yours with a bright-coloured luggage tag. This pink one will put your mind at ease from miles away.
