30 Outfits in a Bag: OverviewJune 09, 2014
I would not call myself a packing expert but have become rather adept at it over the years. And, as I loathe checking bags because my preference is to spend the least amount of time at the airport, I try to cram everything into my carry-on and "personal item."
The title of this (maybe) ten-part series on packing is slightly misleading; a more truthful one might read: 30 outfits in two bags. But for the sake of sensationalism, we are going to assume a "personal item" is de rigueur and thus does not need to be enumerated.
A caveat: the outfits that these pieces produce skew business casual (and dressy casual) so would not be appropriate for a leisure trip or a work trip for someone who needs to adhere to business formal dress codes.
Below are the twenty items that will be used to create thirty outfits; this number includes bags and shoes but excludes other accessories:
|Jackets: American Eagle | J. Crew | BCBG | Zara (similar) | Burberry|
Tops: Forever 21 | Ann Taylor | LOFT | Ann Taylor
Bottoms: J. Crew | J. Crew | The Gap
Dresses: Ann Taylor | Ann Taylor
Bags: YSL | Prada | H&M
Shoes: Miu Miu (similar) | Zara (similar) | Converse
