Remember These When Packing For A Vacation

Jun 13, 2008
Preparing to take a vacation is not all fun; it can pose some problems when you are trying to figure out what clothes to bring with you. Now that airlines limit each passenger to only two bags, it requires you to be very selective in your packing. It is tough for men or women to choose which items to bring and which ones do not make the cut and must stay at home. You must consider the myriad of activities you are going to partake in when vacationing, that must factor in to your clothing choices.

The first category to consider when packing vacation clothes is fabric. Bottom line, you should leave the linen, wool or anything else that needs to be dry cleaned at home. These types of fabrics wrinkle easily and do not travel well in general. You should always bring jeans, khakis and any other light weight cotton fabric. These are staples in every wardrobe and they travel better than any other materials.

Jeans are also very versatile and can be worn in a variety of situations that may arise while on vacation. Khakis are always great too because they can be worn in a somewhat dressier way, but are also incredibly comfortable. If you think that you may be going out for a fancy dinner or to a play, then you probably want to bring some of your designer clothes as well. Keep in mind that silk and velvet are materials that travel very well when thinking about which designer duds to bring and which ones to leave.

Color schemes in your clothing are important to consider too when packing your suitcase. You do not want to get too crazy, so it is best to pick one color scheme and stick with that throughout. Do not feel forced to go with all neutrals or all dark colors; pick three basic colors that go well together and try to spice it up. For example, gold, beige and red look great together and the gold and red can be dressed up or down. You could also go with blue, white and silver if you are going on a vacation somewhere tropical or to an island location.

Also, remember versatility; this should be your best friend when packing. Bring separate items of clothing that can be mixed and matched; this helps you keep the amount of clothes low, but also gives you a number of options with your outfits. Packing your suitcase is the difficult part and after that, you can just sit back, relax and enjoy your vacation experience.
