Spring Break Packing Tips and Style Inspiration


Spring break is just around the corner. But before you can set off on your trip, there is one step left: packing. When it comes down to it, figuring what you need without trying to fit your entire wardrobe in a bag can be down right stressful. We turned to Style Coach Megan LaRussa Chenoweth for Spring Break packing tips and style inspiration.

As a Style Coach, I work with my busy clients to help them streamline their wardrobes and their lives, especially when they travel. Here are 5 of my favorite packing tips to ensure packing becomes less stressful and more successful:

Tip #1:

Pack great fitting and quality basics that can be mixed and matched with ease.  All white tees and dark wash jeans are not created equal, select the best quality fabrics and cuts that your budget allows.

Tip #2:

Bring items that can be layered easily. A cashmere scarf can double as a blanket on the plane, or even a wrap out to dinner.

Tip #3:

Pack one great, versatile pair of evening heels or wedges that can take your look from day to night.

Tip #4:

While neutrals are wonderful when packing and allow for a variety of outfits, don’t forget to add in some color to the mix. When in doubt go with a shade of red, as red can act as a neutral.

Tip #5:

Never forget to pack a clutch! This is the easiest way to up-level your evening look wherever your travels may take you.
