Packing a wardrobe that pays homage to an artist, culture or even the national colors of a region I'm planning to visit is one of my favorite things to do. While Italy is well known for it's architecture, history, food and wine it's also a country rich with iconic fashion brands. I styled one of my favorite designer Italian accessory with a budget friendly jumpsuit for a chic and versatile look that easily took me from day to night.
Hat Packing Tip: Pack the head of the hat with soft items like socks to maximize space or use tissue. Place the hat in the center of your luggage first with the brim lying flat on the luggage. Pack your clothing all around the hat. Steam hat and reshape as needed when you unpack.
