Traveling is busy, time is precious and, often, the people we meet are different each day. Your tops need to be flexible, classic and easy to wear.
I’ll share with you my last packing experience when I went to NY and decided to pack a carry-on. Three-day trips don’t seem like a long time, but when the weather is unreliable and layers are needed—packing can be a nightmare. I have a bad habit of packing stuff I never end up wearing, but this time around I wore everything I brought. The reason? These easy to master tricks to traveling with just a carry-on and your Seventytwoº shirts.
In my carry on were three main shirts and they were black or white and by Seventytwoº. The reasons vary, but generally, it was about being practical and feeling good. Simple.
I wear black, so I packed my black 24/7. Simple. People won’t notice when a black garment is dirty, so you can wear it multiple times. I always prefer comfort over anything else. This time around, traveling was just that—comfortable!
I find wearing a white blouse with a dark pant such an easy look to pull off. Whether you’re going for an elegant look, romantic or boyish, Seventytwoº’s selection of monochrome are perfect to bring along. I picked the Second Skin for easy layering and instant coziness.
3) White turtleneck tee.
Our new turtleneck is the most comfortable and flattering tee I own…and the line’s best value (coming soon to you!!). It came with me all over New York, helped me feel great at dinner and was in perfect shape the next morning for another go around the city. Plus, it paired well with multiple pieces. Thank goodness for it. Next time, I’ll bring the black. Can’t wait for you to have your own.
I wore these three tops every day, over and over again. I accessorized them with the other pieces I packed. I changed shoes, alternated jackets at night and swapped scarves with funky earrings. I realized that while my outfits were uniform, sticking to staples made getting dressed and out the door in the morning much easier.
Thankful for Seventytwoº monochromes for my speedy getaway, comfortable trip, and for showing me the lightweight version of looking good.
