Since summer getaways are ahead, here's a 5-step advice about how to pack.
First of all, try not to take too many things on the trip. Ideally, the list should include only those items which can’t be dispensed. The number of clothes, shoes and accessories that you are going to bring will depend on the number of days that you are staying at a certain place.
Step 1 : Check weather&season.
You want to know what type of clothes you'll need. Obviously you need more clothes for travel to colder destinations.
Step 2 : Gather the basics.
Basic pieces are your outfit’s canvass. It is very easy to create different looks from them. Remember to alwlays bring a pair of jeans! Pack your favorite cardigan or jacket. As in every day life, good basics are the foundation of a versatile travel wardrobe.
Step 3 : Add key color palette items.
This reduces the likelihood of having mismatched outfits.
You can of course choose a couple of colours for your palette, just try to make sure they are all compatible.
Step 4 : Rationalise shoes.
Shoes are the most bulky part of your luggage and if you can restrict the number of shoes you take with you, life will be much easier.
Step 5 : Complete with accessories.
When traveling, bring only a few pieces of accessories that you can mix and match with different garments. A statement piece of jewelry, a fedora hat, a scarf, a bag with a long shoulder strap and of course sunglasses!
Map It Out!
When packing make sure to lay everything out on your bed so that you can visualize the outfits and how they will go together.
Don't overpack on toiletries&cosmetics.
If there are things that you can't live without, see if you can buy some combos.
