Summer is slowly drawing to a close – and so are the days when traveling light seemed like an easy task. Packing all your essentials in a backpack or a tiny suitcase is much more difficult in the fall, but our brief guide is here to help you get it done.
Dressing in layers is one of the most effective ways to prepare yourself for unpredictable fall weather. It’s also a pretty great way to lighten your load, as long as you make sure to carefully pick clothes that you can easily mix and match.
Speaking of mixing and matching your clothes, you should also make sure to pack clothes in neutral colors that perfectly complement each other.
Skirts and pants aren’t as easy to layer as tops, so it’s a good idea to stick to two or three pairs that perfectly fit into all of your outfits.
Ditch Jackets & Shoes
Jackets, coats, and shoes are the bulkiest items you could possibly pack for your trip. That’s why you should leave them behind, and only travel in a coat and a pair of shoes that you’re already wearing.
Do Your Laundry
If you’re embarking on a longer trip or struggling to pack as many outfits as you need, consider washing your clothes by hand or finding accommodation that offers laundry services.
