Even as frequent flyers, packing remains one of the more daunting tasks for our buyers and those with extensive wardrobes. There’s very little time for lots of pondering and debating to the tune of what if’s. Key decisions must be made as to what should stay and what should go. While streamlining the process is an art, for certain, it can be mastered with these packing tips.
Clean and repair those pesky items
How can you possibly pack when you don’t have your best, most-worn items ready to go? 2 weeks before departure, we like to check, clean and repair our favourite wardrobe pieces. You love them at home, so you’ll love them when you’re away.
Dinner looks first
Daytime looks are often the more practical, comfortable and non-descript of the packing selection. Dinner is a serious celebration for us and should be for you too so get the eye catching pieces sorted first.
Red lips over Accessories
Our fun fashion jewels and accessories can add weight to our case and we prefer to leave weight for more shoes! A statement lip is as good as any accessory you’ve got. Plus it’s the perfect excuse to stop at Duty Free. Our picks are here and here!
The go-with-everything Lace Up
Never before – until now – has the humble lace up shoe been accepted as a smart, fashion accessory. Comfort factor 10 out of 10. Cool factor 10 out of 10!
If all else fails – go TONAL
Day to night, and night to day, packing with a tonal palette in mind ensures mixing and matching all week long. You will not only feel a million dollars but it will look super stylish too.
Once you’ve managed to edit down your selection, you still have to make it all fit. We have rounded up some of the essential packing tips than any stylish lady on the go should heed.
Your shoes are the first to go in the suitcase. Line them up (in their dust bags if you’re like us!) along the bottom of the case in heel-to-toe arrangements.
Any embellished garments, silk items or something likely to snag in a plastic garment bag. We save ours from the dry cleaner and reuse. This also helps your items from wrinkling too much in your case and less pressing bills on arrival!
For any blazers or tailored jackets, turn them inside out for the suitcase. Save them from being wrinkled on arrival.
