How To: Pack Light

August 1st, 2005

Whether you’re traveling a day or a month, domestic or international, summer or winter, packing light is an essential. A few things to remember:

  • Bring versatile clothing, such as colors that match easily, reversible outfits, and clothes that can go day-to-night.
  • Avoid packing anything that wrinkles, since you’ll have to press or steam it when you arrive at your destination.
  • Convenience and comfort, above all else, are key. Spare your back and travel with a roller bag, and sans stilettos.
