A Wardrobe Packing List That Makes it Possible to Pack in Under 30 Minutes

Don’t overpack. My most popular packing list makes it possible to pack everything you need for your next trip in under half an hour. It doesn’t matter if you need a packing list for Disneyland or a packing list for International Travel, my versatile 6 pieces packing list will help you never overpack again. The biggest mistake I see women make when they pack is packing for each day or by the events they have planned. Packing a capsule wardrobe of versatile mix-and-match pieces gives you more outfits than you’ll need, even if your itinerary or the weather change.

VERSATILE 6-PIECE PACKING LIST

  1. Cardigan
  2. Tank
  3. Straight Leg Jeans
  4. Hat
  5. Neutral Print Piece
  6. Medium Weight Layer

1 | Cardigan

I consider a cardigan a cool classic wardrobe essential. I dedicated THIS BLOG POST to some of my favorite styles here and include one in almost every capsule wardrobe I make.

2 | Tank

Wear one solo when it’s warm or layer one under when it’s not.

3 | Straight Leg Jeans

Straight-leg jeans are the most versatile jean style and one of 6 styles you’ll find in every stylist’s closet. To find the pair that looks best on your body visit my Jean Shop and take my free fit quiz.

4 | Hat

Pack a hat because the most unpredictable factor is always your hair.

5 | Neutral Print Piece

What’s a neutral print? How to mix prints.

6 | Medium Weight Layer

This is any piece you can layer over your other pieces and under a warm coat when it’s cold.

PACKING LIST FOR DISNEYLAND

I practice what I preach. Watch Coffee in my Closet recorded live on Instagram the day before we left for Disneyland and see how I was able to pack in 10 minutes. We went when the weather was very unpredictable, but I had all the right layers and comfortable shoes.
