My top tip would be to pack your bag using packing cubes. These cubes compress your clothing so that they take up less space and also allow you to store the same items together without having to search through your entire bag for something.
I use three packing cubes when I pack my backpack. One for all of my bottoms – pants, shorts, and dresses and another one for all my tops. The third one I use for all of my undergarments, scarfs and swimsuits. That way if I want to change into a dress to go out to dinner I know which packing cube to grab, open it up and pull out a dress I want without having to unpack my entire backpack.
