HOW CAN WE STOP OVER-PACKING FOR HOLIDAYS?
Planning is the key. People typically wear about half of what they pack. Try packing versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched to create fresh looks.
WHAT FABRICS TRAVEL WELL?
Jersey is lightweight, comfortable, stylish, and when packed correctly will stay crease-free. Denim is always crease-free and stylish. Go with dark-wash jeans in a classic cut.
YOUR PET TRAVEL FASHION PEEVE?
Nothing says “not only am I on vacation but my wardrobe is too” like a tracksuit. If you’re seeking comfort, go with a nice pair of leggings paired with a pullover sweater or a cashmere wrap. Finish the look with practical and stylish accessories.
WHAT IS INDISPENSABLE FOR GOING FROM DAY TO NIGHT?
A statement necklace — it can take a day dress into the evening and dress up jeans and a top. The same can be achieved with a scarf. And always pack a versatile pair of flats and heels to transform an outfit.
