Spring is one of the most challenging times of the year to travel due to transitioning weather. Should you pack for sunshine or rainy days? How can you be prepared for everything without overpacking?
Keep reading to find out how to pack for long weekend trips in spring!
Prepare for Spring Travel Conditions
The No. 1 thing a traveler should do when planning long weekend trips in spring is to check the weather. Take a look at the extended forecast before you go so you know what to expect.
If only one out of four days will be cold and the other three will be warm, then only one-fourth (or two to three pieces) of the clothing you bring should be for cold weather.
On the contrary, if three out of four days will be cold, then the majority of your clothing (roughly five to eight pieces) should be for cooler weather.
Planning a Weekend Travel Wardrobe
A weekend getaway can be more challenging than longer trips because you’ll usually have a jam-packed schedule that requires various outfit changes.
Start by making a list of the things you’ll be doing every day and night of your trip. Write down the type of clothing that you’ll need for each activity.
For a long weekend trip in the spring, you should pack a travel wardrobe consisting of eight to twelve clothing items.
However, if you plan strategically you can even pack with as little as six items! Don’t believe us? Watch the video.
