Pack it up. Pack it in. Then sit on it, get someone to hold it down, and tie a rope around it.
Or just invest in a few pieces by Tamar Daniel, an Israeli-born, London-raised designer whose versatile debut collection drastically lightens overpackers’ loads.
Not only is every NYC-made item machine washable and lightweight, each one is also as suitable for a swanky bar as for taking a meeting with, say, Oprah. We especially love the Bauhaus-inspired tie-neck blouse of creamy chiffon and the abstract peony-print maxiskirt that converts to a strapless dress. Breeze into spring with Breton striped tanks and a double-breasted half trench/half tee.
Daniel developed the collection to fit her own needs (the former Anthropologie knitwear designer has four children under the age of 7).
So you know it can handle a lot of jumping around.
