Packing more tops than bottoms


Let us face the truth: there are more chances you will re-wear a pair of bottoms than a top. To avoid over packing, stick to the golden rule of thumb: packing two different tops – this can include sweaters and blouses or t-shirts – for every bottom you wear – can be shorts, pants or skirts. As far as bottoms go, always pack dark and light wash denim.

One of the worst things that can happen to you if you are travelling is to discover that you forgot an essential item, leaving you scrambling to discover the nearest store in your destination. The other side – you pack too much in your bag(s), and you become burdened with heavy bags to tow, in addition to looking disorganized and, if you are travelling by plane, paying an arm and a leg for airline baggage fees.
