I get an inordinate amount of pleasure combining my wardrobe pieces to see how many outfit options I can get out of each piece. I have a rule when I buy something new that it must go with 75% of the rest of my wardrobe otherwise its pointless for me to buy since I have cut my wardrobe down so dramatically. This same rule applies to my packing light lists but at a higher percent. I try to make each piece go with 90-100% of the rest of the pieces so you can have the most outfit options from what you bring.
If you have no idea where to start I suggest you lay out everything you want to bring with you. Then start to make outfits, and if you have trouble coming up with multiple outfit ideas for an individual piece then reconsider packing it. Most people just blindly go in to their closest and start pulling out the pieces that they usually wear on a daily basis without realizing that while these pieces work well alone they may not work together. Planning outfits might take some time but will pay out in the long run. You may even be able to set up your go-to travel wardrobe if you spend a bit of time planning things out.
With this packing list I came up with 20 different outfits, ten above and 10 below for What to Wear in Salzburg, Austria. I could make more but ran out of room in the Photoshop collage :) Blouses layered under sweaters, sweaters under the blazer, t-shirt over jumpsuit….you get the picture.
I really like how versatile a jumpsuit is. Do you like jumpsuits, or hate them?
