Oh, the sweet season of summer! Nothing is quite as quintessentially summer than selecting a destination not-too-far away, loading up the iPod with your favourite tunes and heading away in the car for a road trip!
As the days pass us by, there’s definitely no time to waste to take off on your own mini-escape and to help make you preparations extra easy Cool Charm Fashion Editor and Blogger Melissa Chrisp is sharing her road-tested guide to making your summer getaway one full of style. Have a look at Melissa’s top ten essentials for your own summer road trip!
All Day Freshness –
With the sun beaming down it’s easy to overheat. Stay cool, fresh, and feel your best with your favourite Cool Charm roll on deodorant and fragrance on-hand for touch ups on-the-go.

A comfy dress –
Dress for comfort for your time in the car by selecting a cute, but comfy dress. A comfy dress is a key component of a successful road trip! Bonus points if it's one that can take you from lounging in the passenger seat, to a roadside fruit stand, to a nice dinner at your destination.

Game for the car –
There's no opportunity like an extended car trip to bust out some infamous car games!

Oil free face wipes –
When you need to freshen up quickly after a long day of travel, these oil-free face cleansing wipes are a lifesaver.
Stunning Shades –
Windows down? Check. Wind in your hair? Check. Sun in your eyes? Um, definitely NOT. These sunnies have just enough flair to help you fit in wherever your adventure takes you.
Susie Q Black Sunglasses
Iced Beverages –
Having a stash of cold drinks keeps the need to stop to a minimum, which is key if you've got a long way to go, and not much time to do it. This travel cooler collapses when it's empty, meaning you can keep it in the car — and at the ready — at all times!
Soft Cooler Bag
Snap Happy –
It’s essential to take loads of photos while you’re road trippin’ to remember the moments long after they’ve passed. Although most of us have easy access to cameras on our phones, nothing’s quite as awesome as a hard-copy snap.
Mini Polaroid Camera
Duffle Bag –
A cute bag that’s roomy enough to hold all of your necessities will be ideal for quickly reaching for what you need now!
Best Foot Forward –
Rather than go barefoot and risk stepping in something icky during a pit-stop, sport a barely-there sandal that's still sleek enough to keep you looking put-together.
Wrapped Up –
As fun as road trips are, chances are you’ll doze off after the initial excitement passes for a well-deserved rest! Carry a super-soft throw blanket with you to make your trip extra comfy.
