8 Days, 7 Nights, 1 Carry-On

Here at Jetsetter, we’re big proponents of packing a carry-on. Doing so saves you time, money, and the headache (er, backache?) of lugging around a heavy suitcase. Of course, if you decide to opt for a carry-on, you’ll have to be smart about what you bring with you—and what you leave at home. Here’s a handy packing guide to help you do just that. Comprised of just the basics—three pairs of shoes, four tops, two pairs of pants, two jackets, one dress, and four accessories—it’s all you need for eight days and seven nights of travel.
