Tips to Help You Pack for Travel Featured

Written by  18 Feb 2012 1104

Who doesn’t want to arrive at their destination in vogue, sporting a set of spanking clean clothes? Perfectly creased where you want them.

But the truth is travel has a tendency of doing funny things to your luggage and the clothes inside tend to get tossed around a lot. As a result they don’t look the way you had packed them. As more and more travellers tend to join the culture of one-bag-travel, thus carrying only what is needed. Here are a few tips to help you have an efficient wardrobe while on the go.

 

Pack Clothes That Don’t Wrinkle

When you are packing clothes to travel, it is best if you choose dresses which are made of slim, wrinkle-free shirts and trousers with blended cotton.

Avoid Hotel Laundry

Hotels tend to overcharge with their laundry bills. You surely don’t want to be carrying all the delicate stuffs and then pay exorbitant bills in order to get them laundered. Try to pack clothes which can be easily hand or machine washed, and won’t need to be ironed or any special maintenance. Leave your designer clothes behind as these will be high maintenance.

Don’t Fold Your Clothes

When you are folding your clothes, you will invariably create gaps which are unwanted. Try to roll the clothes into multiple narrow bundles instead of folding them. Rolled bundles are not only easy when it comes to packing also you will be able to carry multiple clothes with you as your carryon luggage thus avoiding the hassle of a check-in luggage.

Check The Local Weather Forecast

Before packing check your trip’s destination’s weather forecast and then pack accordingly. You may also choose to check out the local cultures and prevalent customs and thus take clothes and accessories which will be appropriate to wear. People who usually follow the rules of ‘light packing’ but ignore customizing their wardrobe according to their destination might find out that they’re unable to wear what they had packed.

Dress Clothes Should Be Avoided

Dress clothes tend to be of high maintenance and thus don’t suit with travelling very well. Unless you’re scheduled to meet some high flying clients for a business dinner, try to make do with your regular clothes. You are advised to carry one black outfit which looks expensive, neat and suave. That’ll be enough for evening outings. A woman is advised to carry a black dress which can be worn during the day as well as at night. Carry not more than a couple of pieces of lightweight simplistic jewellery along with a lightweight shrug jacket or a fancy throw-on in case you have a glamorous evening planned.

In the present age world where travelling for short business purposes have become the order of the day, travelling light, but travelling in style is surely a necessity and no longer just a choice. Travelling with a good wardrobe will ensure that you are travelling with confidence as well as ease.
