With these 5 travel essentials, you’ll be prepared for anything your trip throws at you.

Versatile dress

Preparing a compact travel wardrobe can be stressful already, and it gets worse when you travel between destinations with a significant weather change. Hence it is smart to pack versatile pieces to your capsule wardrobe. Enter the perfect mate – a versatile dress. Skater and shift dresses are ideal for multi-purpose which makes them a perfect travel wardrobe addition. If layered and accessorized strategically, these one-piece wonders can take you between seasons and accommodate changes in weather. You can also wear one dress in many ways by throwing a t-shirt on top of a dress or wearing leggings under the dress. A fresh new look every day!

Sweatshirt/Sweater

At least one soft sweat is a must in your travel luggage. It holds up for traveling while looking luxe. For flights and unexpected weather changes, or simply in case a cover-up is lacking in your room, a cozy, well-made, and warm sweater (but not too warm) will come in handy.

Pants

Wide, airy pants are inarguably the best to carry while traveling. Classic black leggings/jeggings/joggers are super supportive too, which makes them ideal for flying as well as being active. Comfy pants are great for hiking in humid conditions or protecting your modesty during local transport commute.

Scarf

Be it a business trip or vacation, don’t underestimate the importance of packing the right accessories. Like a simple scarf can make life on the road a lot better for us ladies! Also, unfortunately, airplane cabins don’t come with a temperature forecast, so it’s best to be prepared for the chills by tossing a scarf into your bag. Pick a cozy scarf or a wrap that is versatile enough to go with multiple outfits during your trip. You can pair it with jeans and a t-shirt for a walking tour, or dress it up and drape it over your shoulder at a destination wedding.

Sandals

Sandals are absolute favorite travel footwear. A well-made, quirky pair of sandals will end up lasting you the entire trip and for years, and did we mention, they are super duper comfortable. When you are traveling to a new place, there’s just so much to see – you can’t stop yourself from exploring and being comfortable is key.
