Guide to the perfect suitcase
Which baggage to choose?
The choice of baggage obviously depends on the type of travel and its duration. For short holiday weekends, a handy handbag is extremely perfect, extremely chic in the leather version. Classy, comfortable and durable, it allows you to maintain an impeccable upper casual style in every context.
The trolley is the solution most loved by businessmen always traveling between one country and another, so it is easier to have one at home. It is essential, not a hindrance and ideal if you are traveling by plane. The stiffness of the structure keeps the garments inside in order and the practicality of the wheels allows you not to crease the clothes you have, keeping an aplomb worthy of the chicest destination.
For longer holidays a larger suitcase is required and if you plan to travel by car, a soft version is certainly the most practical choice to manage the space in the trunk.
Which garments to wear?
Obviously, we cannot make you a real list of items to bring with you this summer, considering that we do not know your destination, but we can invite you to keep a word in mind: versatility. It is important that you choose basic clothes in neutral colors, so that you can combine them in a transversal way and create many different looks.
What are the must-haves that will save your style on any occasion? Forget about the office but do not forget a classic dress in fresh wool or linen at home. You can combine the jacket with the practical chinos for a more casual split or bring the whole dress for a romantic evening.
Another essential garment is certainly the shirts. A white and a blue one, in linen or cotton, will be perfect with a pair of jeans, comfortable on the beach and formal if combined with the dress that you have worn.
How to arrange things in a suitcase?
You have chosen what to bring but do not know where to start filling the suitcase? Follow the pyramid rule and proceed by layers. Start from the base and insert heavier items such as beauty cases, books, electronics, shoes and less delicate items such as jeans and shorts. If you have to carry something fragile with you, place it exactly in the middle of the suitcase, so that it does not get hit.
At this point arrange the buttoned shirts, taking care to keep the fold of the cuffs and collars, the most visible parts of the garment. The polo shirts (and pullovers, if needed) will eventually go into the upper layer, along with the jackets and the most delicate items in the wardrobe.
How to store the jacket? Turn a shoulder strap back and insert the other shoulder strap inside, thus folding the jacket in half for the long. The part of the cover will thus be turned outwards. After that, fold the jacket still halfway to horizontal.
