Here are a few quick tips on how to pack your suitcase for the upcoming holidays:
Start with your shoes. Choose a dressy night shoe, a couple of everyday good-looking yet still great for walking options, and then add in a sneaker and/or flip-flops depending upon your destination. If you’re flying: wear easy on-off shoes to go through security OR conversely, your heaviest boot so that it doesn’t take up space in your suitcase.
From the shoes you’ve chosen, build your outfits up. Work within a specific color way so that many (or all!) of the pieces can be mixed and matched. Start with either a black base or a tonal base.
Once you have a few outfits pulled together, don’t forget specific undergarments and jewelry to go with each. Use an accessories travel pouch with clear, zip pockets or separate your jewelry for each outfit and store in individual zip-top baggies.
Ship any gifts ahead of time OR designate one suitcase just for presents.
