Summer travel is always very exciting. Yet before the actual jet-setting fun, packing for a trip can potentially be very daunting and stressful. Thus this week in our summer travel series Kuzak’s Closet, along with expert guest bloggers, will be teaching organization tips for packing, while sharing this seasons must-pack trends and travel products. For our first post Kuzak’s Closet and Living In Vogue are talking style, helping you pack your vacation wardrobe.
Kuzak’s Closet Tips
Kuzak’s Closet’s number one tip, use a rolling rack! Set up a rolling rack in your room at least a week before you start packing. It will provide clarity, allowing you to visualize all your outfits and therefore encourage you to pack only what you really need. Take time and think hard about what you really need to pack, adding and taking items off the rack as you decide on your looks. Seeing exactly what you are packing and how you plan to wear it is much more efficient that throwing everything in a bag and hoping for the best!
Hefty One Zip Bags will also make packing outfits very easy. They are particularly useful for organizing swimwear and shoes. If traveling to somewhere where you won’t be able to unpack, they are perfect to organize outfits in. You will be then be able to easily grab a bag and it will have everything inside that you need (shoes, undies, pants, tops, etc).
Accessories are also very important. Remember less is more. Select neutral jewelry pieces that can go with multiple outfits. Organize them in a small jewerly roll that can fit in your carry on bag so your jewels are always close to you. A few silver bangles and some simple statement rings will go a long way.
For guest fashion blogger Monica Cruz-Hernandez, from Living In Vogue, 2014 summer travel style is all about the summer tote. A trendy tote is a the perfect transitional bag, great for traveling as well as using as a tourist. It is perfect for mixing and matching with various outfits and is large enough to fit an extra pair of shoes or some beach essentials you may need for a sight-seeing day. Usually a more casual accessory, the must-have tote this summer is about the extras details. Monica suggests shopping for a tote with some character. Consider buying one with straw texture, a woven pattern or even some pom-poms for that extra summer style. Pack it along with your other classic summer neutrals like strappy sandals, statement sunglasses and simple bangles for a flawless accessory repertoire that will take you from casual to cocktail.
