Smart Travel Packing Tips


Wherever you’re headed this summer, bring along these tips and tricks for jet-setting in style

Keep It Flexible

Create a formula of interchangeable separates that can be easily mixed and matched, in a palette of colors that work well together. Choose neutrals first (since they’re the most versatile), then throw in a hit of color.

Opt for shoes in metallic gold or silver: They’re perfect for day or evening and look good with just about everything.

To avoid overpacking, try the following guideline for a weeklong trip: five tops, four bottoms, three dresses, three pairs of shoes, two swimsuits, two handbags, one hat, one statement accessory, one pair of sunglasses.

Think Multi-taskers

Espadrilles are ideal travel companions. They’re comfortable enough for running through the airport or climbing the Spanish Steps.

Bring a few no-fail gauzy scarves that will let you look pulled together in a hurry. Wear one as a wrap on chilly nights or as a makeshift cover-up by the pool, or knot it around your neck to update a basic sundress.

Always plan ahead! I lay out my clothes four days in advance, starting with a wish list of too much and eliminating a few pieces daily. I create outfits for every activity (each piece should be compatible with at least three others) and snap pictures on my phone. That way, when I pack the night before, I’m good to go.

Get Packing

Roll your clothes (rather than fold) to fit more in a carry-on.

Store undergarments in jumbo ziplock bags for easy visibility—they double as laundry bags on the way home.
