Whether packing for a summer road trip, a weekend getaway, a business trip or an extended vacation, packing quickly, lightly and adequately will make your travels much more pleasant. Fashion First Aid Founder, Kim Castellano, aka Honest Kim, offers her top six tips and tricks to help travelers look, feel and smell great while on the road.

1) Invest in a Timeless Tote
“A nice, but not too nice, bag appropriate for the trip is a must-have. I use a timeless leather tote that I purchased in Guatemala back in the late 1990s. I also use a waterproof Porter Tokyo backpack that’s great for overnight trips or as a simple carry-on for small electronics and a change of clothes.”

2) Pick a Color Scheme
“I always try to stick to one color scheme per trip, which is generally black or brown. This makes it easy to narrow down on your shoe options, eliminating the need and weight of packing an array of heavy footwear. Adding a few scarves will help you brighten up basic colors and the extra bonus is they’re super lightweight and work great for layering.”

3) Remember Flats
“Great flats are comfortable on travel days, look chic and can easily go from day to night. I always save the fabric bags they come in and use those when I travel. Dropping the shoes in these bags helps keep shoe ick from touching your clean clothes.”

4) Keep a Toiletries Case Packed
“Having a toiletries case already packed with travel essentials really cuts down on packing time. I keep one packed and ready with a toothbrush, toothpaste, q-tips, deodorant, a nail file, Advil, a portable makeup brush set, a 4-color eyeshadow set, blush, lots of sample lotions and potions, an eyeliner pencil and an eyelash curler.”

5) Organize with Delicates Defender Bags
“Delicates Defender bags are a clean and organized way to keep your delicates from mingling with the riffraff outside. These nylon mesh bags are perfect for securing your lingerie inside a suitcase and can be dropped directly in the laundry following your trip.”

6) Avoid Unpleasant Odors
Subtle Butt disposable gas neutralizers and What the Smell wearable odor filters help you smell great and protect you from others who don’t smell so great. They’re a perfect pair to solve the problem of summer heat and stinky people.”

Fashion First Aid (Solutions That Stick Inc.) invents and manufactures both wacky and useful personal care products that you will never see someone else wearing, unless you take off his/her clothes. Recently relocated from Southern California to Idaho, we began in 1999 with one product, Garment Guard: disposable underarm shields (because the founder was a broke law student who was tired of her expensive white t-shirts getting ruined by underarm taco stains.) Now, with over 45 products on the market, over 10 in the works, and a light and upbeat book entitled The Dirty Side of Fashion, the corporate mission is still to save the world from beauty and fashion disasters and help make clothes last longer.
