Fashion-Blogger Secrets for Packing a Carry-On
If you're in the market for a new bag, look for ones that feature compression technology, one of the top luggage trends of 2016. Some styles, like the Briggs & Riley carry-on, expand up to 25 percent to fit more items, and then compress back down to original size.
And, within your suitcase, another great way to gain incremental space is with compression pouches, which squeeze out excess air without requiring a vacuum. (However, you'll still want to keep an eye on the weight, and it's best to avoid using them with delicate fabrics, which may wrinkle.)
