Inexpensive, Versatile Vacation Wear
If you tend to overpack when going on vacation, stop! After all, airlines are just looking for another way to get more cash out of you, and when you stuff your suitcase full of unnecessary clothing and supplies, it gives them a reason to tack on baggage fees upward of $100 a bag! And it leaves you with less room to bring home souvenirs. So pack wisely and avoid running out of room and being charged for overstuffed luggage. The key is to pack fewer bulky items, like jeans and dresses, in basic colors, saving bright pops of color for smaller accessories, like sandals, scarves and jewelry. This way, you can punch up your look without having to pack multiple outfits. A black maxidress paired with a chunky, colorful necklace, for example, is a sexy evening look.
