Going away during spring, is always a bit challenging as one do not always know what type of clothing to pack – do I pack for summer, winter or a combination of both?
The Chata Romano packing chart provide tips on how to pack your bag perfectly for various types of trips (business or leisure), duration (2 days, 1 week, or 3 weeks) and different seasons. It also eliminates the just-in-case scenario and ensures you wear at least 80% of what you pack.
Before you choose the first item of clothing remember:
• Each item you pack should coordinate with at least three other items to ensure versatility (including the outfit you wear when traveling).
• Ensure the colours, styles and fabrics coordinate well.
• Pack more tops and less bottoms as people notice the top half of what you are wearing, not the bottom half.
• More plains, fewer prints as it is easier to mix & match plains.
