Packing Tips Women Need to Remember for Traveling Light
1. Bring Cotton Clothing
Cotton blend clothing items aren’t as susceptible to wrinkles during a trip. This means you’re less likely to need an iron or a steamer while on holiday. You can simply slip on your clothes and go. It’ll help you avoid being late, as well.
2. Stick to a Color Palette
Look chic even without your entire closet on hand. One of the foolproof ways to pack strategically is to stick to one color palette. Neutral colors of tan, white, and black work best. Also, minimize clothing items in loud prints so people won’t notice if you repeat your clothing.
3. Wear Your Heaviest Footwear
Reduce your baggage weight allowance with this neat trick. Simply wear your heaviest pair of footwear while on the flight. Then, place the remaining 1-2 pairs in your luggage.
Tip: Comfort is key. Don’t bring shoes that pinch your toes or give you callouses.
4. Pack a Scarf
Traveling to Europe in the summer? Don’t forget to pack a shawl or a scarf. It’s best to choose one you can easily put inside your purse. The scarf will also come in handy when you visit one of Europe’s magnificent churches. It’ll make you look more modest and give you an instant way to add some flair to your outfit.
5. Pick a Good Coat
The weather in Europe varies from one country to another. Stay prepared by packing a coat for the coldest country you’ll be visiting. It’s also wise to pick a double duty coat, one that’s water-resistant and will still keep you warm. Invest in a good coat before going on your trip. It’ll last you for years.
6. Get Travel Toiletries

Nowadays, you’re spoiled with the options for toiletries. There are different ranges, scents, and purposes for products. Aside from this, there are also a variety of sizes to choose from.
Choose travel-sized toiletries for your upcoming vacation. This should be done regardless of whether you place your toiletries in a carry-on or a checked bag. Remember, you’ll only be away for 5 days. There’s no need to bring your extra large bottle of shampoo or a full skin mask range.
Tip: Can’t find travel-sized toiletries? Purchase a small empty bottle from your local drugstore. Then, fill it up with your toiletries back at home.
7. Don’t Forget Your Meds

Bring a pillbox with daily compartments for everyone in the family. That way, you get to stay organized and make sure everyone takes their vitamins and necessary medication. Now, there’s no reason to bring the entire bottle anymore.
