Choosing the Pieces for Your Trip

Maybe you are staring into your jewelry box and looking at each piece remembering why you were attracted to it to begin with. You may be thinking you can’t leave any of it behind. But, it’s important to think about the environment you’ll be visiting on your trip and any events you may be attending. Jewelry needs will be different based on destinations. This is the perfect time to be a bit more creative with accessories. You may take a few versatile pieces to dress up a few basic outfits, and now you have a way to carry your favorite statement necklaces and jewelry easily.

Keeping it Practical

Try to think ahead and be practical when planning what to bring for your trip. Choose a few items that will pair well with several outfits. If it’s a long trip with special nights out, pack just one or two items to go with the outfit. Other than that, or for shorter trips, just pack a few essentials. If it’s a short weekend trip, you may want to stick with what you can wear on the flight.

Pieces You Don’t Want to Miss

For those who just can’t live without jewelry, here are a few key pieces of jewelry to bring. These will allow for accessorizing but help keep it uncomplicated when traveling.
