These are our Top 10 Packing Tips and Tricks

1. Use a single color palette

Based on where you are going, pick three to four colors that coordinate. Are you heading to the urban jungle? A neutral palette is a must (black, white navy, grey and grey are all good options). Mix bright yellow, lime, or tangerine and white, cream, or khaki for a beach getaway. You can mix and match almost everything in your suitcase with a single palette, which means more outfit options and less stress.

2. Accessorize, accessorize

You can add a little sparkle to your look. You don’t need to wear expensive jewelry. Statement necklaces and cocktail rings are a great way to update your look. A colorful scarf can add a splash of color and warmth to your look. Layer it over a sundress for cool evenings.

3. Multitasking, practical bags are essential

There’s no need to carry a purse that matches every outfit. A neutral-colored crossbody bag can be transformed into a stylish clutch for evenings with a removable strap. You can use your carry-on bag as a beach bag.

4. Comfortable shoes are key

To keep your fingers happy, all you need is a pair flat sandals, loafers, ballet flats or tennies. A wedge or kitten heel is a great choice if you are looking for a more formal shoe. However, stilettos can be cumbersome and difficult to pack.

5. At least one pair of jeans should be packed

Jeans are essential for any trip, especially if the temperatures dip at night. Jeans can be worn with almost any outfit, and they don’t need to be washed often. Your most loved, versatile pair of jeans. Denim in any color, ankle booties or schooties and a cute cardie hit that fashionable/functional sweet spot.

6. Make sure to check the weather forecast before you go

You won’t need an umbrella other than the one you have in your fancy cocktail. However, it is smart to bring a small umbrella for when the weather turns sour.

7. Accept it.

To make the most of your limited space, roll your clothes. You’ll find it easier to pack more in your suitcase. Additionally, rolling your clothes will keep them wrinkle-free and allow you to see what you have, without having to unpack or repackage your bag.

8. Downsize your toiletries

You can either pack travel-sized versions of your favorite products or purchase small plastic bottles to fill them up. The full-size versions are heavier and take up more space.

9. Make sure your suitcase is spill-proof

For instant protection against spills, place your lotions or potions in a ziplock plastic bag.

10. Show your skin some love

Make sure you have sunscreen with 30+ SPF and a straw hat that can be carried around. If you are going to the beach, make sure to pack baby powder. It can be used to remove sand from the skin.
