I travel internationally a lot, so I had to learn how to come up with a packing plan in order to make sure I got the most out of the weight allowance without having to pay any extra in baggage fees.
It seems like I always packed a lot of crap I didn’t need, and a lot of shit I never wore. One thing I learned – if you have clothes that you’ve never worn, don’t think you are suddenly going to have the urge to wear those when you are on vacation. Whatever you do, don’t pack them! Think in terms of putting 5 decent outfits together and make sure you try them on and look at yourself in the mirror to make sure they look good. Certain shoes don’t look good with certain pants or they just don’t match to the look you are going for. Don’t wait until you get there to realize that it doesn’t work. If you are going to be somewhere for longer than 5 days, don’t worry about packing more. You are on vacation, so you will probably see a lot of stuff that you have to have and you don’t need a lack of space in your suitcase. If you do happen to run out of clothes, then just wash the ones you brought.

Take along the clothes that you normally wear casually. Jeans and a t-shirt are pretty much acceptable everywhere. If you think you might go swimming, then you can pack a bathing suit. If you have an event planned during that time, bring your planned attire for that event, too.
Just keep in mind, the more space you have when you go, the more souvenirs and clothes you can buy to bring back!
