Holidays: Packing Made Easy
When it comes to packing for the holidays, it's all about versatility and strong separates. You want to minimize the amount of items you bring with you (because chances are you'll be returning from the trip with new goodies) while focusing on basics that will be understood by everyone from your great aunt to your old high school classmates. Pick statement blazers and sweaters that draw the appropriate amount of attention. Plan to layer essentials like leather paneled pants and chambray shirts with everything from a simple white tee shirt to an embellished top. Complete the look with a requisite plaid printed scarf for the hayrides and bonfires, a chic chapeau and ankle booties.
