Embarking on a two-week vacation to the coast of Italy calls for a wardrobe that effortlessly blends comfort with style. Begin your packing journey by curating a versatile collection of mix-and-match pieces in laid-back hues of denim, white, and earthy tones. We have easily made this possible with all of our collections at Salt + Pine.
  1. Choose a Versatile Wardrobe: Opt for mix-and-match pieces in neutral colors. This way, you can create multiple outfits from fewer items.

  2. Roll Your Clothes: Rolling your clothes instead of folding them can save space and prevent wrinkles. Roll individual pieces tightly to maximize space.

  3. Use Packing Cubes: Packing cubes help organize your clothing and compress them, creating more space in your carry-on. You can separate items by type, like tops, bottoms, and underwear.

  4. Layering: Wear your bulkiest items on the plane. For instance, wear your heavier jacket or sweater instead of packing it.

  5. Maximize Shoe Space: Place smaller items inside your shoes, such as socks or underwear. Stuffing shoes with these items also helps maintain their shape.

  6. Utilize Ziplock Bags: Use Ziplock bags to pack smaller items like toiletries, accessories, and underwear. They keep things organized and prevent spills.

  7. Compression Bags: Compression bags can help reduce the volume of your clothes by squeezing out excess air. These can be particularly useful for bulky items like coats.

  8. Limit Toiletries: Pack only essential toiletries and consider using travel-sized containers. Alternatively, purchase toiletries at your destination.

  9. Wear Bulkier Items: If you're bringing a heavier coat or sweater, wear it during travel to save space in your bag.

  10. Fold Strategically: For delicate fabrics that wrinkle easily, fold them neatly and place them on top of other items to minimize creasing.

Remember, the specific items you pack will depend on your destination and the activities you plan to engage in. Before you start packing, make a list of what you'll need each day, including outfits, shoes, and accessories. Be prepared to do laundry if necessary, as this can significantly reduce the amount of clothing you need to bring.
