It’s time to pack perfect. Every trip, every time. Your journey starts here.

When it comes to traveling, Hitha Palepu knows that the journey is just as important as the destination—and packing is always the first step. A timelessly illustrated guide, How to Pack: Travel Smart for Any Trip (Clarkson Potter, $14.00, on sale March 7, 2017) shows readers how to plan strategically for a trip in a whole new way.

Written by a former consultant who has traveled more than 500,000 miles around the world, How to Pack includes guidelines for narrowing down one’s wardrobe (Power Pieces vs. Fantasy Pieces), how many pairs of shoes are really necessary (Accessory Math), and best practices for storing toiletries and makeup (Pack Pretty). Here, too, are instructions on selecting the right luggage, when to fold vs. roll clothing, and trip-specific sample packing lists that readers can tear out and save.

Conveniently travel-sized and chicly designed, How to Pack is for today’s modern traveler who doesn’t want to sacrifice style for space, but who still wants to fit a two-week vacation wardrobe into a carry-on bag.


HITHA PALEPU is an entrepreneur and a writer with extensive global experience in the digital media, technology, and travel fields. During her years traveling the world for her career, she found that her experiences were often limited by overpacking, which stemmed from fear of the unknown. After becoming attuned to the emotional relationship between packing and her travel experiences, she created Hitha On The Go to share her daily life advice, as well as tips for packing stylishly and carry-on only. Originally a hobby, the website grew to be a top destination for women searching for simple, stylish solutions for packing and creating their “confidence carry-on.”

Additionally, Hitha currently serves as the cofounder and chief operating officer of Bridge2Act, a start-up technology company enabling charitable giving in a rapid, easy, and more informed manner. She lives in New York City with her husband and son.
