Ready for takeoff? No matter where you’re off to, whether it’s a business trip, backpacking excursion or beach getaway, travel style is always important.
These suggestions will ensure you’re traveling in style!
A blanket scarf is a travel essential; it can double as a blanket on the plane and as a wrap to either keep warm on chilly evenings or to cover up if you’re visiting a church or temple. This neutral luxe, lightweight scarf, made out of washed cotton, fits the bill perfectly.
Some things are worth investing in and handbags are one of them. This creamy pebble leather satchel is the ideal travel companion. Featuring three separate and sizeable compartments (two with a top zip), this bag can comfortably accommodate an 11” Macbook Air as well as your iPad or tablet and e-reader, along with all your other in-flight essentials.

A fedora is not only a stylish addition to your travel wardrobe but it’s a great way to protect your face from the sun’s harmful rays. With a chic profile that is perfectly modern, yet reminiscent of its classic origins, this hat features a sweet ribbon detail and will look just as at home on the beach as on city streets.
I always recommend packing dresses when you travel because this one item of clothing makes up an entire outfit as opposed to a skirt or pants and a top, which requires two pieces. So if you’re trying to pack efficiently, dresses are the way to go. Plus, many dresses, like this one, can easily be dressed down with a pair of flat sandals or dressed up for evening with heels and a bold necklace.
Banana Republic, $110
You never want to leave home without a cardigan, but choose one that’s neutral in color and can serve you for both casual days and dressier nights. This cotton-linen blend cardigan in white is perfectly versatile and has a straight and clean lined silhouette.
I dare you to find a more comfortable pair of flats. I really do. These shoes are a traveler’s best friend. Crafted from full-grain Italian leather, these shoes can hit the ground running and keep your feet feeling fresh and comfortable even after endless hours of sightseeing. Plus, they easily fold in half for easy packing.
It’s tough to travel with multiple handbags but a flat clutch is always easy to fit into your suitcase. This sweet polka-dot clutch features a printed snake foiled fabric with matching trim and 14-karat light gold plated hardware. Use it when you’re heading out to dinner but also consider using it to stash your passport, boarding pass and cash inside your handbag, for easy access when you’re traveling.
Kate Spade, $198
Obviously, you’ll need a bathing suit if you’re headed to a tropical destination. But even if you’re not, it’s always handy to have one just in case you visit a spa that has a sauna or steam room or if your hotel has a pool. I recommend packing a one-piece that’s on the modest side so you’ll always be safe but since bikinis are so small, you can always throw one in your suitcase, too!
Old Navy, $35
The beauty of a pair of flip-flops is twofold: they’re extremely comfy and they take up very little room in your suitcase. But as opposed to your typical pair of flip-flops, these Tkees have a glossy finish, making them perfect for day or night. And when you’re packing, versatility is a good thing.
Step up your sunglasses game with this super stylish pair. Featuring a cat-eye silhouette, this pair of shades might quickly become a part of your signature look. This pair has gradient lenses and a subtle gold tone frame that combine to create a look that’s luxe and modern.
