European Travel Packing – 3 Outfits that Fold Together Like 1

European Travel Packing - 3 Outfits that Fold Together Like 1 New Collection - Zurich

Hi Everyone,

Woop woop Summer vacation is just around the corner – so exciting!

Whilst packing for a beach holiday can be super easy, packing for a city trip requires a little more thought. It is smart to look dressed in a European city. Shorts and t-shirt simply scream “tourist” which is not always optimal. I for one would not like to be spotted in the streets of Milan or Paris wearing a simple t-shirt and shorts – smile!

Unless you don’t mind travelling with a lot of luggage the answer to getting European city packing right lies in choosing the right pieces from your wardrobe. My tip is to go for pieces that fold down to very little. This is why slip dresses are often a great option.

Today’s post is about 4 other pieces I truly love because they make 3 beautiful outfits.  Or even 5 outfits  if you choose to change the way you style pieces, This means you get 3 – 5 days of wear out of pieces that literally fold down so slim they will take up hardly any room at all in your luggage. You can see all the pieces folded together in the following picture:

At the end of this post I give the details of where to find everything I’m wearing – including the bags.

Outfit 1: White shirt & green pants:

See how I choose to style the blouse super easy with a cross body bag to give the outfit some shape and then later with a belt for a little more sophistication.

Outfit 2: Matching shirt and pants:

Here I show the shirt worn open first for fun, showcasing the ruffle detail on the back. Later I wear it tucked in which gives the whole outfit a jumpsuit feel to it.

3rd Outfit the shirt dress:

A shirt dress is almost always in my luggage. They are so versatile to dress down with sneakers or up with heel or sparkly ballerinas.

This one is especially great as it really does fold down to practically nothing – perfect for packing!
