Stylish bag designer Eddie Harrop loves a holiday, but her mantra is style should never be compromised when traveling! From a stylish vacation bag to the beach see Eddie’s top 10 tips on how to pack perfectly for your next trip..in style!
1.LAY ALL YOUR CLOTHES OUT ON YOUR BED BEFORE YOU PACK...
If you're anything like me you have a tendency to want to bring too many things. The secret of a good pack is a good edit.
2. CHOOSE FOOTWEAR WISELY
I love you wedges but sadly you can't come on holiday this year as you're too heavy and take up too much room in my carry-on. Clothes always seem to take a fraction of space, but choosing your shoes is a tough one. Do you pack running trainers (you maintain you will run but never do) or do you opt instead for going out heels? If you’re dancing all night then you'll be scrapping the run anyway!
3. CONSIDER THE TEMPERATURE OF WHERE YOU ARE GOING
There is nothing worse than packing for the heat and arriving somewhere considerably colder than you anticipated having packed nothing more than a strappy top. I'm a big fan of a cashmere throw which means you can take it on the flight but also use it for those chillier evenings when the sun goes down.
4. CHOOSE A BAG WITH A GOOD ZIP
All of our Eddie Harrop travel bags have 8mm zippers which mean they are bullet proof when it comes to that time where perhaps your edit hasn't gone quite to plan and everything still needs to fit!
5. DON'T FORGET YOUR PASSPORT
It sounds obvious, but if you don't remember it, you'll be crying all the way home.
6. BE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT ADAPTOR
I must have one thousand adaptors at home. I always forget to pack them, having to buy one at the airport or be told by my hotel they don't have a UK one. A Venezuelan adaptor just won’t work!
