Stylist Bay Garnett explains how to pack like a (streamlined) pro.
If you, (like us) spend the days preceding your holiday continually editing the ever-extending list of ‘must-pack’ items, only to find yourself sitting on an over-stuffed suitcase in a futile attempt to close it as the off approaches, help is at hand.
Because like most things in life, smart packing is an art. So let’s call stylist and ELEMIS Expert, Bay Garnett the Picasso of streamlined packing. She’s put together the equation for a perfect capsule holiday wardrobe. Say goodbye to those eight pairs of heels…
+ 2 long hippy skirts, (‘I have old favourites that I’ve dug out from markets and bought from Martin Margiela’)
+ 1 pair of Birkenstocks
+ 1 pair of trainers, (‘Vans or Stan Smith’s by Adidas’)
and for the evening...
+ 1 pair pretty sandals
+ Some big earring hoops
+ A tote bag (‘I take my Louis Vuitton monogram version everywhere’)
= suitcase sums sorted.
With all that free space in your suitcase, you’ll have room to pack these holiday essentials…
