I love Eagle Creek packing cubes.  I can stay *so* organized if I use these.

TravelIndependent.info has a lot of great tips on packing (this is targeted towards round-the-world backpackers, but still has a lot of relevent information).  You really do not need a large bag or a lot of “stuff”.  Also check out OneBag.

If you’re a makeup kind of girl, get a small cosmetics bag and put together one of these capsule kits.  I keep a kit like this in my office and I have *everything* needed to put a whole makeup look together in it.

As far as types of clothes, knits (like jerseys) and synthetics tend to wrinkle less.  I would not bring jeans because of how heavy they are.  Lightweight travel khakis wear so much better.

Bring comfy shoes you can walk in.  If you want nice shoes buy them there!  ๐Ÿ˜›

@li612: Synthetic fibers, for sure.  Most clothing made of cotton, rayon, linen or silk will wrinkle very easily.  Definitely check out some travel clothing companies (Travelsmith, for example), and look into synthetic (nylon or polyester) knits!

Also, be sure to bring items that all go together to make multiple outfits.  You want to get the most bang for your buck out of your wardrobe.

@Anise:  Love the idea of a capsule kit!

Synthetic materials don’t wrinkle.  You can wrap ’em up in a ball!  But most clothes have natural fibers, so I don’t have a lot of advice.  Just pack carefully.  Fold your clothes.  Don’t leave too much loose space so things move around and get wrinkly.  But do leave some extra space for souvenirs on the return trip!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

 

I’ve traveled to Europe several times and wrinkles were never really a problem.  I never brought a silk blouse or anything though…maybe you can invest in a portable steamer?

@DomesticDiva:  Thanks!  I thought it was pretty awesome myself!  If one didn’t want to build a kit, one could go to Sephora and get these two palettes or something like them:

Laura Mercier Flawless Face Book

Laura Mercier Luxe Colour Portfolio

Add a travel brush set, a mascara and lip color and you’d be set!

FWIW, I don’t actually wear a lot of Laura Mercier, she just seemed to have the most compact palettes available.

Go and search for Mrs Fox’s post about rolling clothes to pack in a suitcase! ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, I reeeeeeeeeeally like polyester because it doesn’t crease, and I actually find it really cool in the hot weather.
