Packing means practical clothes that accommodate city days and nights yet can be versatile enough for island jaunts. Luggage constraints also call for serious wardrobe editing. I have no choice. Simplicity is the only way to go.

Goes from city party to fancy resort dinner
Though not minimalist, Vionnet has neutral, relaxed dresses in their Resort collection. The sassy draping is hip for the city, yet, it is easy enough to throw into a weekend beach bag. You can also find budget-friendly versions of this style. (It's harder to get away with cheap Minimalism.)
Minimal style is only one variable. Fabric choice is also key for versatility. Knit or stretch blend fabrics combat wrinkles and high maintenance steaming or ironing.

I guess the Jet Setters from days of old had their own kind of simplicity too.
