It will have already happened to you: carefully prepare all the items to take on vacation but then, when you finally arrive at your destination, you always find yourself using the same ones!

Preparing a balanced and functional suitcase is simple, just follow a few little tricks.

Leave the superfluous at home.

The moment of departure arrives, the desire to take everything with you is so great! But do not fall into the mistake of bringing with you also things that you will surely not use.

When preparing your travel bag, think. Do you really need a sarong in the mountains?

Prepare only the garments that you realistically believe to use and concentrate on those.

What to pack, clever leaders.

There are few really essential pieces to take with you on vacation.

Evergreen clothing, to be used for both the sportiest and most glamorous looks.

Choose a jeans , the passepartout trousers par excellence! Comfortable and versatile, it has long been cleared through customs for even the most chic combinations.

Don’t forget a polo shirt , fresh and sporty. The polo shirt is the most sought-after shirt of the simple T-shirt but always casual. Ideal to keep on hand when you want a holiday look.

In your holiday suitcase, always leave a space for a cardigan . In the evening the temperature drops, having a light golf on hand can make a difference!

Finally, a well-organized suitcase does not neglect more elegant garments, suitable for the evening or for an aperitif with friends.

Yes to wide skirts and skirt-pants models . These garments are depopulating in summer 2017, capable as they are of combining practicality and elegance.

Bring with you also a dress suitable for several different occasions ; maybe a tunic or kaftan, to be modeled with a maxi belt in neutral tones.

Preparing the perfect suitcase for the holidays is not impossible, just don’t get caught up in the illusion of being able to use everything we don’t wear for normal things in a whole season!

Happy holiday!
