With spring already here, travel season is right around the corner. If you’re like many women, spring and summer travel opportunities bring both anticipation (time to relax, experience new cultures and cities, have adventures) and dread… What on earth am I going to pack?! With increasing luggage weight restrictions this task can be even more daunting, especially for chronic over-packers.
Whether you’re skipping town for a weekend retreat in the countryside, or embarking on a whirlwind, world-wide tour, your travel wardrobe needs to be edited yet versatile. (And of course stylish!) We’ve put together a few tips for creating your own travel-friendly wardrobe.
One of the easiest ways to get more mileage out of fewer clothes is to choose a colour inspiration and use it as the basis for all your choices. This way, all your tops can be interchanged with all your bottoms, accessories, and so on.
Also, a neutral wardrobe can be accented by pops of colour in easy to pack (and usually space-saving!) accessories. You’ll always be stylish and appropriately dressed for any situation.
Evaluating what kinds of activities you’ll be doing and the climate you’ll be in will also dictate the types of pieces you pack. After all, the amount of layers and sleeve lengths you’ll need while in Berlin is vastly different than those needed for Belize!
