Normally, I’ve always suggested that you pack around a great travel outfit, and then a carefully selected travel capsule wardrobe of separates, chosen separately, all working together.
But what if you decided to pack outfits? If you work from a unifying theme around which you choose all of your outfits, this is a very effective idea, which also has the benefit of helping you remember all of your important accessories!
For this example, I’m packing for someone who LOVES the combination of blue and green, and who has a variety of clothes and accessories which reflect this. The trip starts somewhere relatively cool, but will include some warmer weather activities, and a dressy dinner for a special occasion. So how does this play out?
Since it’s cool at your point of departure, a long-sleeved tee shirt, pants, closed-toe shoes, a jacket and a scarf will be important:
This is what you’ve got to pack; a travel capsule wardrobe that could see you through a very long vacation in consistent style, with lots of options!
