It’s summer, my clients are traveling, and they’re asking for help with packing. Here are my recommendations for your travel essentials, no matter what your final destination may be.
Dark denim, sexy jean
Dress it up: Wear a sandal with a heel, a patterned flowy top, pretty earrings, and a necklace. Optional: Throw a blazer on top.
Dress it down: Wear sneakers with no-show socks, a striped T-shirt, and a lightweight cardigan.
For extra mileage: A motocross leather jacket will give you a funkier look for day or night.
A great dress in a solid color or a subtle print that will go with everything
Dress it up: Wear the same heel you wore with your dark denim jean. Add a shawl in a yummy non-neutral color for warmth. Pack an earring that has movement or is attention getting in dim lights like a crystal chandelier earring.
Dress it down: Add to the dress a jean jacket, sunglasses, and a flatform or a taupe bootie.
For extra mileage: A Fedora or wide-brimmed hat in your favorite style.
A few well-edited accessories
Dress up everything with these cool-tone pieces: dangly earrings in silver, a long silver chain pendant, and a leather/silver cuff.
Dress down every outfit with these warm-tone jewelry pieces: Gold hoops or mixed metal earrings, gold bangles, a long chain necklace that mixes gold with your favorite neutral beads. Wear it long or double it up.
An exercise capsule—like yoga pants, sports bra, tennis shoes, and sports socks.
For extra mileage: a hoodie; short- and long-sleeve T-shirts.
A sleepwear capsule—like comfy drawstring pants or shorts and a loose top. Choose cashmere or flannel for cold weather and cotton or silk for hot weather.
For extra mileage: a silky robe, slippers, and a sexy nightgown (or two).
A travel bag that suits your style. A tote is perfect as a carry-on or for shopping, and/or going to the beach. Another great travel bag choice is a small or medium crossbody.
For extra mileage: A small going-out fabric, metallic, or beaded clutch is great for evenings.
