All woman out there (men of course, too), we have to admit that our wardrobe is too big to take everything with you. To be honest, we would not even wear most part of it. So here's a list of basics that you'll want to bring to your next trip:

Shoes: normally, one pair of comfortable sneakers, one pair of ballerinas and one pair of heels will go a long way

Pants: three basic pairs of black, dark and light blue jeans, combined with some fabric trousers, they will light up your suitcase

Tops: cardigans in black, gray or nude are all-rounders, as well as one or two patterned shirts

Bags: One big bag is usually enough, you can already use it as your carry on luggage. Small day bags and clutches can easily be packed into your main luggage, but you definitely won't need all of them!

If you're planning to go out at night, transparent tights and the little black dress can totally make it! Instead of sparkish clothes rather go for a significant make-up and jewelery, it doesn't take away much space in your suitcase

Makeup: Less is more

You don't wanna spend hours in front of the mirror instead of exploring a new city. So go for the basics, some beautiful lipsticks and eyeliner. Try to stay as natural as possible, it's easier that way to have your make-up fixed all day and there is no reason to check if everything's still on point!

Reduce gadgets

Camera and editing equipment take up the most space. Rather use your tablet than taking your laptop with you. Normally, if you're not traveling on your own, you do not need a tripod, just ask your friend to take some photos of you! Strangers as well can be great photographers, you just have to try it.
