Luxury lies in simplicity. There is nothing better than arriving at the airport light handed with just a leather holdall in one hand and your tickets and a passport in the other.
But before all that, the agony of packing rarely can be escaped. How and what to pack for a luxurious getaway? This question is going to be answered today!
How to Pack for a Luxury Weekend Away
The Right Bag – Half of The Work Done
First of all, pick the bag of your choice. It’s like starting with a clean canvass and filling in the picture up step by step.
If your getaway is short, a good old weekender bag might be exactly what you need. This won’t burden you out as suitcase would, and not to mention it will easily fit into a hand-luggage compartment on a plane!
You should choose a bag that is spacious enough to fit all your necessities but compact enough to look smart and polished. Holdall bags are very versatile because of their timeless and simplistic design so they will be able to serve you on more occasions than just wandering around airports.
Clothing – Keep it Simple and Timeless
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. The simpler your outlook is on clothing, the easier it will be to pack and to enjoy the trip itself.
You never know where a weekend getaway might bring you, but having a classic set of clothing and accessories to match will never disappoint. Leave the urge to experiment with your fashion at home and pack only the most versatile and timeless pieces you own.
Neutral colours, good quality materials and classic garments will save your trip. A couple of button-downs, neutrally coloured dresses, polo shirts a v-neck or two and a couple of good fitting bottoms will set you for success.
And always be ready to dress up. After-all, this is a luxurious trip! You don’t have to cram the ball gown or a tux in, but don’t forget a pair of dressy oxfords if you’re a gentleman, or a classic pair of pumps if you’re a lady.
Other Essentials – How to Choose What to Pack?
Checklists are so underrated these days, and we don’t quite understand why. Nothing feels better than literally ticking all the boxes once you’re done packing!
Make a list for all of your toiletries, makeup and jewellery that you might want to take with you, and do this at least the night before. If you need inspiration to create the ultimate checklist, have a look at advice from Smart Lemur.
Pack with your own convenience in mind, and make sure that your choices will ensure your comfort during your luxurious stay.
Ask yourself how easily one or another item can be substituted and how important it is in your routine? If it is not as crucial and can be easily substituted, you might reconsider packing it with you.
And not to mention, always save a little space for a bottle of your favourite perfume, because you are never fully ready without a spritz of it (when we say little, we mean little enough to pass airport security).
