Tips for packing light

“Before you go, lay out your pieces and play mix-and-match to determine
which ones work in the most possible combinations. A cashmere cardigan,
for example, goes just as well with jeans as it does over a sleeveless
dinner dress. I suggest sticking to a neutral palette with a splash of
color. If you’re headed to a casual beach destination, roll your
clothes to maximize space; if your trip calls for formal wear, fold and
layer each item with tissue paper to reduce wrinkles. And while you may
be tempted to bring a different pair of shoes for every look, limit
yourself to just one pair of flats and one pair of heels—and pack them
heel-to-toe to conserve space.” —T+L associate fashion editor Catherine
