Fashion Friday :: Make A Statement

[trip style = any]

This post is written by Trip Styler fashion and lifestyle blogger Heather.

The best-kept secret in packing isn’t the scarf---because everyone knows to pack a scarf by now {FYI - scarf tying 101}---it’s the statement accessory. OK fine, your statement accessory can be a scarf, but you have lots of other options to make your basic travel staples POP.

A simple long weekend packing list of jeans, a couple tops and a sweater can be complemented by a hat, a statement necklace, a pair of bold socks or stockings, great eyewear and a bandana that doubles as a pocket square. Just like that, two outfits turn into four.

This approach to packing has significantly reduced my suitcase real estate. I can actually pack for a weekend in a weekender bag now! {Except for shoes, but that's why God invented oversized handbags...right?}

Now What To Pack?
Target limited edition wool rancher hat, Norse Projects wool 6 panel cap, Y's by Yohji Yamamoto triple layer stole, Kenneth Jay Lane turquoise stick necklace, Strathcona Stockings turquoise roses trouser stockings, Apolis washed linen bandana, D.L. Eyewear frames, Ladies & Gentlemen bloc necklace
