How to Pack the Perfect Suitcase with Paravel and J.Crew

No more overstuffed luggage

It’s finally summertime, and that means road trips, weekend getaways, and last minute vacations to plan for. If you’re like us, you’ve got a million other things on the go and packing for said trip is pushed to the bottom of our to-do lists. A late-night packing frenzy might even result in forgotten hairbrushes, wrinkled clothes, or a trip to the nearest drugstore to pick up missing toiletries (sunscreen anyone?).

In the latest episode of the J. Crew Style Hacks series, travel expert and photographer Lucy Laucht is here to show us all how to pack smarter and avoid the stress of a messy suitcase. The video celebrates the collection of luggage from J. Crew and cult-favourite luggage company Paravel’s newest collab, which is available online now.

Read on for some of Lucy’s top tips on how to avoid the usual overpacking dilemma, because as she likes to say, “It’s all in the edit.”

J.Crew Style Hacks: #jcrewpacks Edition

Tip #1: Roll, don’t fold (it saves room and keeps wrinkles away)

Tip #2: Use compression bags (for a laundry bag at the hotel, and then for souvenirs on the way home)

Tip#3: Pack your creature comforts (for Lucy, it’s her facial spritz, eye mask, and camera)
