One of the best tricks to packing light is picking items that are versatile. Instead of packing bulky cargo pants, try stretch denim in a beige color. You get the versatility and comfort of cargos and still look fashionable.

Find your “WOW” color.

It could be red, an olive green or even black or white. I always find that this bright blue color makes me feel confident and can make a simple outfit pop. A bright & basic travel style works on every trip.

I always travel with these blouses, for a few reasons:

  • They don’t wrinkle
  • The are lightweight and dry quickly while keeping you cool. (Even in hot places like the Middle East)
  • They’re subtly sexy. They are very feminine but are still conservative making them super travel friendly for every destination around the world.

Where I wore it: Jerash, Jordan

I created a more “adventure-friendly” outfit for a day of exploring by cuffing the pants and rolling the sleeves of the blouse. Then, I tucked in the blouse and wore gladiator sandals and stayed comfortable and cool all day.

A much better alternative to jeans and a t-shirt!
