One of the most important factors in creating a capsule travel wardrobe is planning your travel outfits in advance. Not only will this help you organize your clothing but it will also help you determine that a small amount of clothing can make endless outfit combinations if planned strategically.
These are a few different tools you can use to help you plan travel outfits including TFG’s own printable calendar! Keep reading for more details!
5 Style Tools to Help you Plan Travel Outfits
Polyvore is the tool I use to create my personal capsule travel wardrobe as well as provide visuals for the Travel Fashion Girl Packing Lists.
Not only does this tool help me narrow down my packing choices but it also allows me to do a visual test run of how my travel outfits will look as I pair all my items together.
Makes planning, packing, AND shopping a breeze!
The secret to traveling light is to create a functional but minimalist capsule wardrobe. Learn more in my guide!
StyleBook is a great tool for girls that love their iPhone apps. You can use it to organize your everyday wardrobe or save it for your travel outfits. This isn’t available for Android so I’m bummed that I can’t download it. Looks awesome.
Use packing cubes to help you organize and even compress your belongings to maximize your space!
FabSugar Outfit Planner
Great for business travel, 1-2 week vacations, and weekend trips. Print out the FabSugar Outfit Calendar and fill it out in advance to help keep your travel outfits organized on your trip. Works well for busy itineraries.
Moleskine Style Journal
For those that love the feel of a written diary, this Moleskin Style Journal may be the perfect item for you. It’s preferable as a pre-trip planning source especially if you travel often and need a quick reference guide to choosing tried and true outfits.
Not as light as an app, this item may be a good option to sketch out your ideas then use Travel Fashion Girl’s downloadable spreadsheet below to finalize your trip checklist. See below!
Travel Fashion Girl’s Travel Outfit Planner
TFG’s Travel Outfit Planner is a 1-2 week vacation calendar you can print to plan your travel outfits in advance. Not only does it help you organize but also downsize the amount of clothing you pack AND save time on getting ready while on your trip. (Tip: print it out, hand-write clothing descriptions, and take it with you for a quick and easy outfit reference guide)

Polyvore no longer exists..
Another one you may like is Intelistyle – they are launching a calendar feature at the end of this month that would be perfect for planning travel outfits!
Hi Kat, thank you for taking the time to share this with us! 🙂
OMG! Yes! I definitely needed these!!
I’m so indecisive when I pack! I always feel I need to take EVERYTHING!
Thanks sooooo much!
trying to sign up to get the free travel outfit planner but after entering my name and email address it then is asking me for a password as the page is protected…. help??
Check your inbox for an email with the password. Let me know if you don’t find it. Thanks!
The Stylebook app is maybe the most fun I’ve ever had planning what to pack. It’s “Looks” function feeds the Packing List so you always know how many pieces you’re packing. Easy to use and really allows you to see how many different ways you can use each piece in your “Closet”. I may even start using it for my “real life” what-to-wear daily crisis 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion!
Thanks for the tip on Polyvore! I just purchased your ebook, and am in the process of reading it now. I love the capsule wardrobes that you create, so I thought I’d give it a try. Here is my first attempt:
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=127472417 (I really wasn’t paying attention to the name brands or prices, as much as how the item looked and how well it went with the rest of the wardrobe.)
I will also check into the My Dressing app for Android. Love your website! Happy Travels!
Hi Nancy, looks great! Where would you travel to with this capsule wardrobe? Thanks 🙂
Even though I have never been there, I had Paris in mind when creating this set! I have created several more sets, and I’m quickly getting addicted to Polyvore! LOL Thanks for the tip! Love your site and hope to do much more traveling in the future!
Thank you, enjoy!
There is a free iPhone app called Stylicious that allows you to take photos of your wardrobe & build your outfits, travel plan, etc. I haven’t used it yet, but will let you know when I do.
Awesome thanks for the tip!
