Traveling to Iran is all about layered outfits for me. Sharing what I packed and how I tackle packing for a 2 week trip to the motherland!
Packing for Iran is a bit tricky for me. I normally pack outfits for each day of travel based on my itinerary. However traveling to Iran means no itinerary and going with the flow. Therefore over the years I’ve learned that sticking to a color palette where I can mix and match pieces throughout my trip works best for me. This time around since it was fall, I packed a lot of neutral beige, maroon, hints of olive green, and black. I packed 3 duster cardigans, 1 plaid coat, and 1 wrap vest along with 4-5 different pants and a bunch of different solid scarves.
One of the best pieces I packed on my trip was this basic carmine layering tank from Simply Zeena. The top was the perfect layering piece to pair with all the kimonos I packed. Between my sister and I we wore this top pretty much every single day! I will definitely be purchasing the White and Navy colors for my future trips. Back in the states I’ve been layering the tank with long cardigans and a belt paired with over the knee boots.
I only packed three pairs of shoes – yes 3!! My super comfortable Sezane Jack Sneakers, my trustee Tieks black flats, and my nude M. Gemi Stellato pointed flats. I normally would pack heels but I knew you didn’t have any formal events during our trip therefore I didn’t bother bringing any, my black flats worked out for dinners and nights out. I packed two handbags – this one and this one – along with my Cuyana Tote which came on the airplane with me.
I would love to hear your tips on how you pack for extended trips?
