The Art of Packing a Suitcase
With all the changes the airlines have made with regard to luggage, it is essential to have the "art" of packing down. While it is the tendency to put all the heavy things on the bottom, the best way is the exact opposite!
Start by placing the items you want to remain flat, such as trousers and skirts, on the bottom. Place folded items liks tops and jackets in the middle layer. Put heavy items on top to keep everything else in place.
And always, ALWAYS select a color scheme! Two basics (i.e. black and white) and a pop color like fuchsia will help guarantee that your outfits will mix and match appropriately.
