Ask Shopbop: Ultimate Suitcase, Thanksgiving Edition


1 Foley + Corinna bag. 2 T by Alexander Wang top. 3 Inhabit vest. 4 Bop Basics scarf. 5 Vince leather dress. 6 Three J NYC pajamas. 7 Raquel Allegra top. 8 Rag & Bone/JEAN jeans. 9 Rag & Bone jacket. 10 HELMUT leggings. 11 Rag & Bone gloves. 12 Theyskens’ Theory booties.

I’m traveling for Thanksgiving, and don’t have a lot of suitcase room. What should I pack?

When it comes to packing for holiday travel, I find it helpful to keep a few strategies in mind. First, focus on things you can mix and match. I try to avoid packing pieces that can only be worn with one outfit and rely on versatile separates—unless your special occasion calls for a dress, of course. Next, remember to pack cozy layers. You just never know when you might end up bunking with a family member that prefers the thermostat set to a balmy 60 degrees. Lastly, go for comfortable favorites. You’ll feel more in the mood for celebrating if you’re not concentrating a too-short hem or constricting waistband. All in all, opt for easy ensembles that show your true colors. Happy holiday and safe travels!

OUTFIT MIX & MATCH:
8 + 12 + 2 + 4 = Cozy Loungewear
8 + 7 + 3 + 12 + 5 = Lunch with Friends
10 + 5 + 12 = Thanksgiving Dinner
5 + 12 + 11 + 1 + 9 = A Night Out
6 + 2 + 3 + 4 = Brunch with the Fam
10 + 7 + 4 + 12 + 9 = Heading Home Again
