Are you tired of lugging around a heavy suitcase for a short getaway? It's time to embrace a minimalist mindset and learn how to pack smarter. This method has been tried and tested by me personally and I can vouch that it WORKS. See ya checked baggage fees, I’m rocking an overnighter from this point forward. Here’s how to create a versatile capsule wardrobe that will allow you to travel lighter with just one pair of shoes. I’ve opted for the Leopard Print Avarcas but you could replicate the same tips for ANY colour.
Denim Doing Double Duty
Denim is queen when it comes to durability and versatility. A denim jacket, for example, can be paired with a dress or jeans. Denim shorts or jeans can also double as casual daywear or dressed-up nightwear when paired with a blazer and accessories.
So if you're looking to do double duty with your clothing options, denim is a great choice. Pick the right wash and you’re ready to rock.
Neutrals Never Fail
If you're someone who loves neutrals, you're in luck. Neutral tones like beige, white, and grey are timeless and they are poised for mix-and-match heaven. A white t-shirt can be worn on its own during the day or paired with a statement necklace or a scarf for a bit of pizazz at night.
With neutral colours, you'll have a variety of outfit options without needing to pack too many pieces.
Multiple-Use Pieces for Flexibility
If you're looking to pack smarter, choosing items that can be worn again and again in different ways is key. A scarf can add a pop of colour to a neutral outfit, but can also be used as a wrap on crisp evenings. A compact linen dress that can be elevated with accessories or toned down for daytime is another great option. A crossbody bag can be used during the day when you're out and about, but can also be dressed up for a night out.
Make your selected pieces earn their keep!
By packing pieces that can do double duty, you'll be able to create more outfits with fewer items, leaving more room in your bag for the things you’ll collect while you’re away.
Embrace the Minimalist Mindset
Embracing the minimalist mindset can help you pack smarter and make the most of your limited space. Select pieces that have dual functionality: a good denim skirt that can be worn in multiple ways or a long-sleeved top that can be layered.
Since shoes take up the most space, limit yourself to one pair. With the Leopard Print Avarcas as your one pair of shoes, you can look stylish and feel comfortable no matter where your adventures take you.
