KIM WINSER’S ULTIMATE PACKING GUIDE

Kim Winser shares her essential packing tips for travelling light without sacrificing on style.

 

Whether you’re travelling for work or pleasure, our founder Kim Winser has the answer to all of your packing quandaries. As a frequent traveller herself, not only is Kim constantly on-the-go but always needs to look her best, too.

Perfect the art of packing with Kim’s top five tips for effortless travel style…

 

Start with shoes…

When packing for a trip, you should always start with footwear. Kim advises: “You need to think about what shoes would go with multiple outfits, versatility for holiday dressing is vital. Whether it’s some strappy sandals or classic courts, a pair of heels are essential for the evening. During the day opt for a pair of flats that are comfortable enough to wear all day, flat sandals or tennis shoes are ideal for this purpose.”

 

Lay everything out…

When packing for a trip, Kim suggests laying potential outfits out across a double bed. “Each double bed delivers 3-5 days of outfits, so it’s a great way to see each outfit in front of you. It also allows you to see which pieces can be mixed and match, and what items can work in the day and the evening. For example, our T-Shirt dresses are great during the day with sandals but look equally as great at dinner with a pair of heels.”

 

Add playful prints and colours into the mix…

“Consider base colours and then add the fun. I always start with neutral colours such as beige, white and black before adding pops of colour. In the office I tend to stick to tonal dressing, so on holiday it’s fun to experiment with more colourful and printed pieces, such as our Spotted Satin Midi Dress.”

 

Create a holiday capsule…

Shop sensibly. It can be tempting to buy an all-new holiday wardrobe. But Kim advises against this; “Don't pack just because it's new, pack because it works. Your most-loved pieces are that for a reason – don’t splash out necessarily on items you’re only going to wear once. Instead, choose investment pieces that can work in the office and abroad.”

 

Don’t forget accessories…

Accessorising is key. Take note from Kim and elevate your looks with stand-out pieces; “Remember accessories can change a look from serious to party in a flash! Just by adding a pair of statements earrings and some heels you can transform a look. Pack a few key pieces which you know you’ll be able to re-wear during your trip to really maximise space.”
