Packing Hacks for your Holiday wear

When it comes to packing our holiday wear, most of us focus on fitting everything into our suitcase.  But what if there was a way to pack less and not sacrifice on style. 

Here are 5-holiday packing hacks that will save you space in your suitcase:


Choose versatile clothing items that can be worn in multiple ways

When planning a holiday, many people struggle with deciding what to pack and how to fit everything into their suitcase. This is often because we have so many different activities planned – from sightseeing and exploring the local area, to heading out to dinner and lounging by the pool or on the beach.

One useful packing hack would be to choose versatile holiday wear that can be worn multiple ways and ensure that you flatter your curves. For example, a maxi dress can be dressed down for a day look with trainers or sandals or dressed up at night with heels and some jewellery to create two stunning looks.

Another versatile item is a v neck shirt. This can be worn with shorts or worn with a skirt and wedges to create a smart, yet casual look. It can also be worn under a blazer or cardigan for a layered look, or over trousers for colder evenings.

Pack smart by rolling your clothes instead of folding them.

Rolling your clothes can help prevent wrinkles and save space. It's a good idea to roll heavier items like jeans and sweaters. Lighter items, such as T-shirts, can be folded and then rolled.

How to roll your clothes:

  • Start with a clean, dry garment.
  • Fold the garment in half lengthwise.
  • Fold the sleeves in toward the centre of the shirt.
  • Starting at the bottom of the shirt, begin rolling the fabric up tightly toward the neckline.
  • Tuck in any loose fabric as you go.
  • Once you reach the neckline, tuck in the collar and continue rolling until the entire shirt is rolled into a neat cylinder.
  • Repeat with all your clothes.
