As someone who loves to travel and take advantage of multiple countries in one trip I try to pack as light as possible. That means NO CHECKED LUGGAGE!
Yes you can still be fashionable and pack everything in your carry-on. It’s all about strategy and packing the right way.
After all the international trips I have embarked on, I am very proud of my learned and perfected packing skills. The lighter the load the better, especially when you’re maneuvering in old cities with cobblestone and inconvenient underground public transportation. Yes, I still over pack at times, but everything needed or not, fits in my carry-on suitcase.
I have provided below some essential packing tips to help you stay fashionable and compact for your next trip.
