Stick to a Color Scheme:

· Start with two neutrals for your core basics and add two to three vibrant shades that speak to your style.

· A dark palette hides stains and easily sails from day to night.

· Plan your wardrobe around one shoe color. You need only three pairs — sneakers, flats or sandals, and heels or wedges.

Bring Versatile Pieces:

· Lay out everything before you pack.

· Make sure every piece can be worn with at least twice. You want pieces that can do double duty.

Embrace the Accents:

· Satisfy your craving for variety with little things, like fun belts, bold jewelry, and printed scarves.

· Chunky, colorful bracelets and necklaces draw the eye so people don’t focus on the clothes plus they take up very little space!

Planning to Souvenir-Shop?

· Pack a small nylon duffel bag to haul your loot back home

Plan Your Destination(s):

· Whether you’re going on a beach weekend, city escape or country holiday, the packing list will change drastically

· Do research, ask questions. You don’t want to bring huge stilettos and find out that everyone goes out in flip flops.
