A lot of us struggle with packing only the essentials when we go away on vacation (especially myself) and this can be an issue when it comes to traveling. If you're flying you don't want to have to pay for extra luggage and if you're driving you'll have limited space for all your stuff.
To help troubleshoot this common problem I've created 7 outfits made out of only 8 items for a winter vacation.
I know what you're thinking. 8 items can't possibly make a weeks worth of outfits. Don't believe me? Check out these looks.
When it comes to making the most out of what you're packing here's what to look out for.
Neutrals are important - Choose items that are neutral colors. Black, brown, olive, and beige clothing pieces are the easiest to pair with other clothes.
Patterns and graphics add interest - Without the floral dress and graphic crew neck a lot of these looks would be really boring. Don't be afraid to choose some patterned pieces to go with your neutral items too.
Layering is everything - A denim shirt can become a jacket and a dress can become a skirt or a shirt. When you layer your clothes the options are endless.You'll be able to make countless looks out of the same pieces.
Pick the right shoes - Don't bring a pair of shoes that only look good with one or two pieces. Stick to the basics. A pair of black and brown boots is really all you need. They can go casual or dressy.
Whether you're going away or enjoying a stay-cation I hope you have a wonderful February break!
