Dedicated to making travel beautiful, DELSEY shares a few steps that help make connections seamless:
Step 1: Choose your luggage
When choosing the right piece of luggage, there are a few key points to consider. First, method of travel. If you’re traveling by car and have your entire trunk to fill then load up! If you’re taking a plane/train/Swan Boat, you may want to be a little more selective in what you choose to bring. Check weight and size restrictions for your preferred method of travel so that you can avoid any overweight fees.
Most airlines enforce a 50 pound weight restriction for checked bags and DELSEY has created a patent-pending device integrated on the top handle of the suitcase to alerts travelers if bags exceed the standard limit. When luggage is packed, travelers simply lift the bag by the top handle and a red mark signals bags that are over 50 lbs. Built into the carry handle of the case, the mechanically operated DELSEY Over Weight Indicator is impossible to forget and guaranteed to eliminate the last minute luggage shuffle at the check-in counter.
Step 2: The essentials
Make a list of all of the things you need every day. Don’t forget phone chargers, medications, camera, sunglasses…anything you know that you will use during your trip. Keep this master list and re-use it when you are packing to return home, and every time you travel!
Step 3: Less is more
The weather in Boston at the end of March can be very touch and go. Layer up! Select a color palette that you can mix and match. Pick a jacket or cardigan that you can pair with a cute top or a dress. Choose a top that will go with a skirt or jeans. Add a colored scarf to tie all of your outfits together. Select comfortable shoes so that you are up for anything during your trip. Avoid clothes that might wrinkle so you don’t have to waste precious time ironing (or worse, trying to iron with your hair straightener!).

Step 4: Accessorize!
If you stick with a color palette for your clothes, then you can have a little bit of fun with your accessories. Make sure you pack a comfortable pair of shoes since you’ll be on your feet a lot throughout the weekend. Bring a dressier pair in case you decide to head out on the town (you can sacrifice comfort for cute here!). For purses, bring one for the day (which you can also use as a carry-on) and one for the night-time, like a clutch, that you can easily pack into your suitcase.
Next, jewelry! Which is so small you can bring a few pieces to make your outfits sparkle. Bring your basics and then something to jazz it up a bit.
Step 5: Toiletries and cosmetics
Don’t forget to bring along your basics. Toiletries and cosmetics can be a little tricky to pack due to TSA restrictions. Keep all carry-on liquids in a clear plastic bag and always remember the 100 ml rule — anything larger than 100 mls can only be packed in checked luggage. Collect samples of all of your favorite brands to use during your trip or keep smaller bottles to pour the liquids into when you travel.
Also, change in air pressure can cause your liquids to do some crazy things so try to keep all of your liquids in a plastic bag so there are no surprises when you unpack!
Step 6: Packing vs unpacking
One last rule? The less you pack, the less you have to unpack!
