The ultimate dilemma: You hate wrinkled clothes, but you don't want to lug around a bulky steamer in your carry-on. So what do you do? No, it's not a trick question—it's all about how you pack. Here’s how to layer your clothes so they're smooth on arrival. No iron or steamer required.
Step 1: Lay out any dresses, rompers or jumpsuits on a flat surface and smooth out any wrinkles.
Step 2: Pile on long-sleeve tops, followed by short-sleeve and sleeveless, rotating each new top to lay in the alternate direction as the one before. You can also include skirts over your sleeveless top at this point.
Step 3: Now it’s time for shorts and pants. Fold them in half and place the waist bands in the center of your pile so that the legs stretch out between the arms of your shirts.
Step 4: Delicates go in a neat pile in the middle.
Step 5: Fold your pants over your delicates and into the center, followed by sleeves and shirt bottoms. Finish your clothing burrito by wrapping everything together in your dresses and placing into your suitcase.
Happy wrinkle-free travels!
