Keep Outfits Sharp While you Travel

Travel takes us places where we want to look and dress our best, regardless of whether we’re going for work or pleasure.

Here’s how to accomplish that feat.

Roll instead of fold

Rolling clothes can help reduce wrinkles and save space. This method is particularly effective for casual and wrinkle-resistant fabrics.

Use packing cubes

These help organize your clothes and keep them compact. They also make it easier to find specific items without having to unpack.

Choose wrinkle-resistant fabrics

Opt for fabrics that are less prone to wrinkling, such as synthetic blends, knits and performance fabrics. These materials tend to bounce back after being packed.

Pack a portable steamer

A small, portable steamer can be a handy tool to quickly remove wrinkles.

Bring stain remover or laundry detergent

A travel-sized stain remover pen or wipes can be useful for dealing with stains on the go. A travel-sized container of laundry detergent also can be useful for spot-cleaning stains and washing small items in the sink.

Use dryer sheets

Placing dryer sheets between layers of clothing can help keep your clothes smelling fresh and reduce static. It can deter pests in some cases.

Limit the color palette

Packing clothes in a coordinated color palette can make it easier to mix and match outfits, reducing the number of items you need to bring and minimizing the risk of clashing colors.

Avoid overpacking

This can lead to more wrinkles. Stick to essentials and versatile pieces.

Separate dirty and clean clothes

Use a laundry bag or a separate compartment in your luggage to keep dirty clothes away from clean ones. This helps prevent odors and keeps your clean clothes fresh.

Pack a travel sewing kit

Fixing a loose button or a small tear can prevent further damage.
