4 Must-Have Travel Essentials

Half the fun of planning a vacation is planning the outfits, at least for us fashion lovers! Traveling calls for a shift away from the usual outfits which work back home – it means opting for ease, comfort, durable fabrics, items which condense easily, and most importantly, outfits which make you feel like a million dollars. Try these 5 must have travel essentials when planning your next get away.


A Maxi Dress

The quintessential vacation piece, a maxi dress says summer like no other. The elegance of a long dress lends itself to days lounging by the pool as well as extravagant nights out – the options are endless with the right shoes and jewelery. The best part about a maxi dress is that it can be made your own – boho lovers can go wild on prints, vintage lovers can explore lace and silk and the modern minimalist can keep it simple in a black slip dress.


The Perfect Shades

It would be crazy to go away without a great pair of sunglasses, these are one of the most important travel accessories anyone can have. Go sleek and sexy or oversized and retro, whatever makes you feel like a world wanderer, sunglasses are, after all, meant to be fun and transformative.


A Cozy Jumper

What is a plane trip without a cozy knit jumper? Look for cashmere and cotton blends in neutrals or soft grays to amplify the luxurious, homely feel and style with comfortable lounge pants or stretch jeans for the ultimate in travel style.


A Well Cut One Piece

The right one piece is ultra-versatile, taking you from beach to pool to bar to, well, anywhere really. A one piece can be layered under denim shorts, a summer dress, a flowing skirt, it creates an instant outfit and means less packing of separates which is huge win for luggage space! Look for styles which are seamless, supportive, offer full coverage and are in muted block colors allowing for maximum styling options.
