Pack mostly black and grey ‘basics’ and add a splash of color

Fodor’s member crefloors recently advised fellow traveler MollyMango to streamline her suitcase by packing a foundation of primarily black and grey clothes along with more colorful accessories.

“I base my wardrobe on black and add some color with the T’s and scarves. My cardigans were black and grey. I was gone for two weeks and basically had two pair of the silk underwear, two pair of black knit pants, two pair of tights, four T’s, and two cardigans. A pair of gloves, the coat, a pair of black Privo shoes and a pair of Merrell short boots. Two scarves..I bought more during my travels.” — crefloors
