Today, we will introduce some practical tips to pack your hat in your next travel.
First, to get together all the clothes you want to pack. Then, pack all of your heavy outfits at the bottom of your suitcase, such asshoes, bags and heavier fabrics to make sure that you do so to create a nice flat surface when you lay out the heavier clothes on top of your accessories.
Second, to take a nice heavy piece of clothing like a denim shirt and then roll it up.
Taking your hat, push the shirt down carefully into the crown (the part where your head goes), making sure it fills completely. If there’s still some space, to add another item of clothing so that the crown part is completely stuffed.Next, lay your hat upright onto the flat surface of clothing.
Then start adding your other items of clothing around the hat. For me that meant adding pieces of my holiday wardrobe like this skirt(perfect holiday wear), this romper and this bikini (like this). Pack all your items around the hat, making sure you pack it all nice a tight so the hat can’t flop around. Once you’ve done that add some more clothes on top so it’s nice a flat. Now just zip up your bag and away you go!
One tip from my return journey from Thailand – this technique works best if you don’t stuff your suitcase full, because if you do it’s pretty hard to prevent your precious hat being squashed. In those situations (the ones where you’ve bought so much and have to sit on your suitcase to get it closed) the only real option is to wear your hat on the plane.

You’ll notice I kept my wardrobe fairly coordinated in a color palette sense when I was packing for Thailand, in an effort to stick with the principles of this (very old) post. Always helps to keep things simple!
