Every great travel wardrobe starts with a list ( or in my case 2)
Organization is always critical when it comes to pretty much anything! I find that if I write it down, I don't forget it, so a packing list saves the day every time it's time for me to travel. I jot down the types of outfits I need, and then from there, I start to pull things from my closet. Once that's all done if I notice I need a couple extra pieces I make a shopping list so that I can grab what I need, and not what I don't need.
When building the actual wardrobe remember to keep these four points in mind.
Be sure to pull up your favorite weather app( or channel) and check out the weather during the week to the place you're traveling to. This allows you to know what kind of outfits you need to bring and will help you be prepared instead of having to run around and find something to switch up the looks. Never assume, always check!
Every vacation and trip are different, so you want to make sure you are bringing the type of clothes that cater to the kind of trip you're going to. There's nothing like showing up to an event or gathering, and you're underdressed, or overdressed. Determine what kind of clothes you need, and let the creation of the outfits begin.
3. Don't Bulk It Up
You want to make sure that you leave some room for whatever you may purchase while you're gone, so don't choose pieces that are too thick. Limit them to 1-3 and watch all the space clear up.
4. Try it on
I can't stress enough how important it is to try things on! If you skip steps 1-3, that's cool, but this step you CANNONT skip! Since you don't have the option of swapping things out while your gone, you need to try everything on before you pack it. That way you know exactly what your outfit looks like, and there are no surprises and OOTD's that you are secretly hating.
