Wrinkles don’t have to be a fact of life when you travel. Discover how to fold, roll, stack, and pack any type of clothing—from shirts to slacks to dresses—so you arrive at your destination with a wrinkle-free and adventure-ready wardrobe. 


Don’t feel alone—it’s a common traveler issue we all face. Either you find yourself unable to wear half (of the few) clothes you packed or on a desperate search for an iron.Perhaps you even avoided half your wrinkle-prone closet altogether when you checked off items on  your packing list. But wrinkles can be conquered, people. Jessica Dodson, the Travel Expert, has tested and tried theories over and over on how to pack clothes without wrinkles. So today, Eagle Creekers, whether you’re  jetting off to Europe or  packing for a destination wedding, we demonstrate exactly how to master wrinkle-free packing.

In this situation, it’s easiest to classify your clothing in two categories: 1. Dressier and 2. Casual. Clothes in these two categories have different needs, so we’ll cover  packing solutions for each. 


Dressier Clothes

So, what does dressier mean? These are the clothes in your closet that you typically hang. For example, collared shirts, slacks, and dresses. Our suggestion? Use a  Pack-It Folder

Start by laying out your pants—jeans and slacks both—as well as your dresses. Lay each of these items out long—first the pants and then the dresses. Then set aside this stack of clothes for a later time.  You’ll understand why later. 

Collared shirts and button-downs are perfect for  packing folders. Inside, you will find a stiff board—this not only helps you fold and shape each item for an impeccable fit, but illustrates how it’s done best. Once you have accomplished the tedious task of folding each shirt, place these folded items on top of the laid-out pants (and dresses), wrap them around the packing folder like a blanket—this is the secret to keeping your dressy clothes wrinkle-free because it helps avoid hard-edge creases. 


Casual Clothes

Roll, don’t fold. Yes, we’re rollers here at Eagle Creek. Why? Because not only does this save precious packing space, but again, when you’re packing clothes without wrinklesyou need to avoid those hard edges that get youinto wrinkle-trouble.  Packing cubes  come in different sizes—try a  medium  or  large cube  for jeans and long-sleeved shirts and a  small cube  for t-shirts. Using cubes keeps your clothes rolled and neat inside your bag, because let’s be real, no matter if your using a  spacious rollerbag  or your favorite   backpack, it  will get tossed around. 

In the unlikely event that you do notice some wrinkles upon arrival, a mini-steamer is a great investment (or even hang your wrinkled clothes in the bathroom while you take a hot steamy shower ;). Lastly, consider a  shoe sac for even more wrinkle protection and overall cleanliness. 

That’s it folks! Never again must you let those wrinkled clothes hold you back from your best looks and favorite outfits while out traveling the world.

Happy travels ☺
