How To Pack For A Trip To Europe

Aug 17, 2007
1. One linen suit with draping, wide-legged pants, fitted jacket and light colored fabric. These two pieces can be worn together, or separately. The pants can be worn with any cute top, and the jacket can be worn on chillier nights.

2. Two calf-length or longer skirts in white, light or bright colors that can be dressed up with a nice top or dressed down with a cute tank top and flat shoes.

3. Comfortable sandals with small wedge heels. (Walk around in these a lot to make sure they are comfortable and don't rub you in the wrong place)

4. Strappy high-heeled sandals for your nights out and special dinners

5. Two pairs of capri pants (or full-length denim jeans if you aren't too warm in them) light colors if they are fabric or in a medium or darker wash if they are denim, and without holes or tears (even if you bought them that way). Europe tends to frown upon the more relaxed American styles and is much more formal than casual.

6. Two semi-formal shirts, maybe a kimono top, in float material. These are really cute, especially on petite people, and they also keep you cool while still being dressy and not too casual or revealing.

7. 4 or 5 assorted tops and tank tops- small and easy to pack. Please note that some places in Italy do not allow bare shoulders due to strict religious believes. You will mostly encounter this if you go to visit a catholic cathedral, or any of the primary attractions that are in a church. Bared shoulders, midriffs or legs above the knee are considered inappropriate.

8. Two lovely little dresses that are at least knee length and can be dressed up or dressed down.

9. One swimming suit, careful again about the formality issues in some of these countries. You can wear a two-piece swimsuit bikini, but do bring along a sarong or some other kind of cover-up for when you are out of the water.

10. This last one is a combination: comfortable tennis shoes or flat walking shoes and two lightweight jogging suits. I suggest this because of the fact that you will be spending a fair amount of time on buses, trains or airplanes, and it is most important there to be comfortable.

11. Jewellery and accessories are an excellent way to change your style - maybe a chunky belt to put over a dress in the day time, and an elegant set of jewellery for the night time. Also remember that your makeup can stay light and colorful in the day, and you can create a Smokey-eyed look for evenings out.

You could wear these same basic items every day and just change around colors and hair style and no one would ever notice that you are following a pattern! All these items wont wrinkle very much and can be rolled in your suitcase which can give you more room.

Of course, dont forget your under things like bras and plenty of underwear! Bring sunglasses, and find a cute hat or two so you dont get too much sun in your face and eyes.
