Dear Society Diplomat,
When we travel, my husband manages to fit everything into his carry-on, while I end up bringing along half my closet! What pieces should I pack that will allow me to streamline yet still look chic at my destination?
Thanks, Camille Styles Moore/ Camille Styles Events
Your hubby must be one heck of a clothes packer. Drop and roll, baby. That’s right, dropping and rolling is likely how he gets his packing game on.Can’t blame him. It also might it be the fact that men don’t need a different pair of shoes with each outfit? Perhaps. Or, even, a choice of three pair of shoes per outfit? Let’s not get into gender studies here, though.
Whether a man or woman, it’s easy to pack into a carry on.
First, get the best and largest carry- on piece of luggage possible. Carry-ons can be deceiving. They can look big yet not be too big. They can look the right size and be too small. I recommend Tumi, Hartmann, Guyard or Halliburton. They are pricier, yet they will last close to forever.
