Pack Right for the Fourth of July

America’s birthday is upon us and there is no better time to plan a long weekend getaway. Imagine yourself on a beach somewhere, celebrating the birthplace of the United States of America with fireworks, delicious food, and more explosive decorations. Obviously, in order to maximize your fun, you need to pack appropriately for your Fourth of July adventures. After all, there is nothing worse than heading out on a vacation adventure only to realize, once you arrive, that you have literally nothing to wear.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Where are you going? Are you planning on heading to a family cabin in the woods or a little beach house somewhere? Maybe you are going to kick back and relax at an all-inclusive resort. Wherever you go, make sure that you pack the clothing you need to be comfortable in the given climate of your vacation location. You do not need long johns at the beach and you probably will regret bringing that thong bathing suit on a hiking trip.

• What will you be doing? Underwear and swimwear are two things that absolutely must be tailored to whatever activities or excursions you are planning on your vacation. If you are intending to engage in a number of watersports, like waterskiing or tubing, you will probably require a pair of board shorts or another longer bathing suit. If sunbathing is the only water related activity on your agenda, then feel free to bust out the tiny speedo look with the American flag on it.
• Who are you going to be hanging out with? Obviously, different social situations require different wardrobes. Even though everyone should be free to express themselves as they see fit, a family barbeque with your nieces and nephews might not be the best time to rock your fetching trunk cut suit. If you know that playing with children is high on your list of priorities for the long weekend, be sure that your swim attire is suitably family friendly.
• Who are you trying to impress? Vacation is a great time to see and be seen. Keep in mind when you are planning for your vacation that there might be a wide variety of people who you wish to impress. Dress for it. All of your swimwear and outer clothing should be selected with looking your best in mind. If your swimsuit is off trend or out of style, why not use the holiday as an excuse to update your look? Sporty trunk cuts and classic board shorts are very popular this year.
 Whatever you are doing to celebrate the birth of America, make sure that you do so looking and feeling your best. Packing the right underwear and swimwear is a great first step towards being confident during your weekend getaway. As always, your comfort should be your top priority. Try everything on before you pack to make sure that you will not spend the entire weekend wanting to crawl out of your skin with discomfort. Happy Fourth of July!
