The idea of heading off on a road trip and escaping the city is exciting, but carting around a whole lot of unnecessary luggage is not… Packing concisely is a real art, and we’ve put together the ultimate list to help you out (minus the headache).
The trick is to pack many lightweight separates that can make up multiple outfits. For example, a dress will only give you one outfit. By packing a bunch of different tops and bottoms; you will instantly have more flexible options. Try to make a few of those separates block colours so there won't be too many tricky patterns to match.
4 Days Of Outfits = Ready, Set, Pack!
2 x jeans
1 x skirt
2 x shirts
2 x t-shirts
1 x jacket or coat (Wear this on your commute to save space in your bag)
2 x jumpers (1 oversized, 1 sweater)
1 x sneakers
1 x flats
1 x dressy shoe (mid heel or dressy flat, you choose!)
1 x statement earrings
1 x day/night bag (To carry all your daily essentials, but chic enough to look the part at night)
When packing doubles of one item (ie. 2 jumpers) make sure you have a casual and dressy option. You never know what occasions will arise on your weekend away. You’ll want one to lounge around in, and one you can dress up for dinner with a bold lip and statement earring.
