Pick a Color Theme and Pre-Plan Outfits
It’s tempting to throw all your favorite pieces into your suitcase and assume you’ll put together a few great looks on the other end. But it doesn’t always—ahem, ever—work that way. Make thoughtful choices in advance along a color theme, laying out versatile pieces that you can combine into multiple outfits you’ve pre-planned. This will help you ditch those purple pumps that match with nothing but seemed like such a good idea before you found yourself lugging them around multiple airports with jetlag and a not-cute scowl.
