Whether planning a whirlwind vacation or multicity business trip, packing can seem impossible. How to dress, what about the weather and all the possibilities in between make the process much more stressful. Break out the luggage, we have a plan!
Pack with a Plan
If you’re traveling somewhere with a scheduled itinerary, or, at the very least, planned dinners and solid appointments, begin with those outfits. Make a list of the planned excursions, dinners and events you already have in the books and plan a safe outfit for each.
Once you have those set outfits, pack them away in removable cubes, laundry bags or something to help differentiate them from the rest — that way, you won’t be tempted to dip into another outfit in a pinch when you really need it for a set event.
For all the free time, possibility for spontaneity or still to-be-determined days, find a mix of versatile outfits you can get creative with or reuse, if need be. Light layers that can be easily rolled without wrinkling and mix-and-match pieces are always a win.
Most hotels offer laundry services, or even have a washer and dryer on premises and can help you make the most of your outfits from city to city.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
