Tips & Tricks For Packing—Travel During This Holiday Season In Style

When I was young my family traveled—a lot. And I always remember being surprised at the way my mother packed.  She brought a carry-on for a two week trip to Italy while my sister and I were each lugging around two massive bags, purses and coats, sure we would need an outfit for every occasion. But half the things packed were never used while my mother looked chic every single day—all from whatever was packed into that tiny, magical bag. And since it’s the holidays—that dreaded time of crowds, family trips and delays—you need to make sure you’re also packing light. Minimizing your wardrobe, accessories and beauty products can make a huge improvement in your seasonal travels. Plus you need to have enough room to get all those new presents home with you.
