Keep Calm & Pack a Carry-On: 7 Days in NYC

August 8th, 2013 by Trademark Image Consulting

The joy of travel! I’ve been prepping clients for their summer vacations, and now I’m getting ready for my own week-long trip to The Big Apple!

The questions is, if you visit ‘the city that never sleeps’, do you need twice as many outfits? (Scroll down to check out infinite outfits with only 14 items!)

The answer: maybe, but even so – we can absolutely get everything into a carry-on, and here’s how:

Keep Calm & Pack a Carry-On Tips:

  1. Build around 3 colours: 2 neutrals & 1 colour, or 1 neutral & 2 related colours
  2. Pack only items that can serve double- or triple-duty
  3. Reduce your ‘need’ for shoes
  4. Bring spot remover & a mini laundry detergent  
  5. Remember: if you forget something you can always buy a stand-in!

That’s IT! That’s ALL!

Want to see it in action? Let’s go to The Big Apple for a week…

Keep Calm & Pack a Carry-On: 7 Days, 14 items

These 14 items go from day to night, and from downtown to uptown on a walking & dining trip.

 

1 pair of patterned jeans, over 4 outfits.

A pair of patterned denim is an unexpected & thoughtful approach to a dressing around a basic.

 

1 striped skirt, over 12 outfits

A striped jersey skirt can go from basic to funky depending on the pieces that support it. Extra bonus: wrinkles never cling to jersey knits!

 

1 spangled skirt for day and night

A piece with a little pizzazz enlivens a week-long wardrobe. This funky print is made sophisticated & cool when paired with easy-going jersey tanks.

 

A jersey dress serves every occasion with ease.

You could really ONLY pack this & be perfectly happy ALL WEEK! Double-duty dress/tunic, double-dute day/night. This dress is a perfect packing piece.
