You don’t need a lot of clothes in your closet but you do need to know how to use the right accessories. And of course having a few staple pieces never hurts. But here are a few tip especially if you are traveling and want to pack light. A little black dress is always a must but then after that, let’s play.
1.) Flat to Fabulous – Traveling light and don’t have many options. Wear the little black dress with super fun ballet flats and a fun flower in your hair to lunch. This works for a tropical or summer trip. Then at night take the hair down, throw on your nicest 6 inch pumps and some long 1920s beads or layered necklaces or even nothing but gorgeous earrings and you’ve gone from flat to fabulous.
2.) Only have beige capris for the weekend trip. Pack a silk shell. Wear the shell and a cute cardigan with some loafers for your day trip. As the evening rolls in, take off the cardigan, throw on some nude pumps and add some long knotted beads or a cool scarf. Or nothing but cute earrings a couple silver cuffs on your wrist. Gorgeous. A cute pleather or leather jacket with the sleeves rolled up can also compete the look.
3.) Your short short silk belted dress isn’t so appropriate for the day trip but you can’t pack a ton. Wear some leggings or tights under the dress and cool boho shoe boots. Or add a long statement trench. You are good. Or a cute brown leather belt and a flower in your hair – you are day fab. Now change the belts to a metallic or black patent leather for evening, go bare on the legs or ditch the trench and throw on some hot stilettos – gorgeous.
See – you don’t need a lot of money or even a big suitcase to go from day to glam!
