Travelling is a blast, but packing isn’t. Faced with so many choices and such limited space, it can be a chore to know what you should take and what you should leave at home. Add in the fact that you’re just as passionate about style as you are about seeing the world, and you could potentially have a big problem on your hands.
However, as travel culture grows, so do solutions to this problem. These days, all you need are a few essential pieces to take you around the world and back, all while looking great in the process. Check out these travel essentials that are sure to get you noticed.
Passport cover. Planning to go international? Don’t forget your passport! Better yet, don’t forget to tuck it away in a leather-bound cover that both conceals your most important document and makes sure you’ll never lose it. To top it all off, designer passport covers from the likes of Kate Spade and Smythson are affordable, even if you just spent a ton of money on that transatlantic flight.
Stylish sunnies. These are great for protecting your eyes, particularly if you head to some place with lots of sun and gorgeous beaches. But they can also be a fashionable way to shield your eyes if you’re succumbing to jetlag and running on little to no sleep. Not just any pair of sunnies will do, so we suggest going for something like the Cream Tortoise Antwerp Sunglasses from the prism swimwear range.
Versatile wardrobe options. With limited space for clothing, you’ll have to put your big imagination to work to make your travel wardrobe go the distance. Luckily, you can choose multi-purpose pieces such as blazers that work for both business trip meetings and casual daytime romping.
A rolling suitcase with style. If you’re still imagining suitcases that only come in black or navy blue, you’ve missed some of the most stylish models on the market right now. From Topshop’s leopard-print pieces to Tumi Tag’s Warhol-inspired hardshell suitcase, there’s no better way to express your wanderlust than through an ultra chic travelling bag. Not to mention, having one of these makes your suitcase easier to spot a baggage claim.
A leather satchel as a faithful travel companion. Even for non-travellers, the leather satchel is a fashionable wardrobe staple, but the benefits of this kind of bag only double when you embark on a journey. Part handbag, part briefcase and part overnight bag, this item smoothly transitions you from carry-on fashionista to day adventurer. We recommend the Zazie leather and canvas satchel in mushroom from Seventy Eight Percent.
