How to Pack Like a Jetsetter

The New Year calls for new destinations…want to travel like a seasoned nomad? Let us be your guide on packing right, light and in style (of course!). Here’s our recommendations on how to pack like a jetsetter.

Pick a durable hard case bag that’ll not only be able to withstand the changing environment, it also avoids contents being pressed down too much from any added pressure. Plus, they’re non-expandable, which means lighter packing (God forbid you over stuff your bags and have no room for travel purchases).

Don’t pack anything you “think” you’ll want to wear. Take into account the number of nights and days you’re packing for and pack only essentials. Sure, having extra options is great, but if you want swift travels (like a jetsetter), minimal baggage is best. In any case, you can always shop additional items you may need (hey, any excuse to shop is reason enough for us!).

Pack shoes that can go from day to night with ease – sneakers are great for dashing through the airport and exploring, as are slip ons and loafers that are stylish and comfortable. And don’t let the space in your shoes go wasted when you can pack accessories and smaller items in them.

To avoid the hassle of looking for an iron and ironing board on your holiday (plus, those things can be tricky to work), pack clothes that are less prone to crease. Ideally, your travel clothes are the ones which are durable, takes up minimal space, wrinkle-proof and easy to match with other items.

Organize and pack everything separately: gallon zip lock bags are inexpensive and protects from color transfers, scrunching or snagging. Fold or roll separates to maximize space/minimize crease and make it easy to unload at your destination. Getting everything out as soon as you arrive at your destination avoids items buried at the bottom of the bag from going unnoticed. For toiletries, zip lock bags again are invaluable for avoiding spillage and keeping everything visible.

Place things you may need upon arrival at the very top: swimwear, sunblock (so you can hit the beach ASAP) and chargers. It’s best to pack all chargers together in a labelled zip lock bag for easy access (don’t forget the adapter if you’re going overseas!).

Packing Secrets to Save Suitcase Space

We all love to travel, but our feelings about packing can be quite the opposite. For us, successful packing for a weekend get-away means fitting everything that we could possibly need in a carry-on bag.

Packing itself can be a time-consuming process of figuring out what to take and what to leave behind, plus there’s nothing glamorous about dragging a 50-pound suitcase around only to realize that you didn’t need half the things that you packed in the first place.

Below, we’ve listed 6 simple yet effective packing hacks that will make organizing your essentials (and getting them all to fit !) much easier.

Protect your perfume bottle and any other breakables by slipping them into socks.

To avoid tangled (and lost) chargers, pack them in a glasses case.

For clothes that wrinkle easily, lay the pieces flat inside a dry-cleaning bag, and then fold as normal. The plastic will prevent creases from setting in.

Jewelry always seems to be one of the most difficult things to pack up and organize for travel. The Prima Weekender by Purse N is absolutely wonderful.  Chic & compact, this origami-inspired case features 10 individual compartments with 6 built-in pouches and 4 removable pouches to organize Small to Medium sized jewelry.

The Prima Weekender also includes 2 revolutionary new necklace holder pouches designed to hold your necklaces in place and prevent them from tangling.

For things like T-shirts and jeans, roll them instead of folding. You’ll be amazed at how much less space they’ll take up.

If you’re not into planning your outfits in advance, a good rule of thumb for packing efficiently is to pack three tops for every bottom. Tops take up less space, and people are generally more comfortable repeating bottoms than tops.
