Packing Tips: Maximize Your Wardrobe With Convertible Clothing
Q: I’m headed to Napa for a food festival and need to keep my luggage light (so I have plenty of room for edible souvenirs!). How can I maximize my travel wardrobe? —Rebecca Wasserman, via e-mail

Swappable straps—in white, red, and orange—make your timepiece a fashion statement. $2,980, Baume & Mercier.
One gold-filled chain + multiple interchangeable charms = a necklace to match every outfit. Charms from $28, chain, $309, KZK Jewelry.
A neoprene tote that isn’t just ultralight: turn it inside out for a printed bag-of-the-moment. $175, Rafe.
Reversible skinny jeans offer the versatility of blue denim and the swagger of a camo pant. $139, Cult of Individuality.
