Whether planning for a small weekend getaway or a huge trip abroad, there are certain items of necessity that you will want to make room for in your luggage. These garments and accessories in question are versatile in their range of options and utility – but make sure to invest in pieces that will last you a long while. While it would be luxurious to pack away every travel ensemble you owned into a stack of luggage five Louis Vuitton trunks high, it is equally delicious to travel light and efficient – knowing that you have prepped with key, quality pieces that will take you through your trip and back again. Every woman has a different idea of what is fashionable and luxurious – but no girl can argue the comfort of leaving home with these top five travel-friendly items in her possession:
The quintessential piece to layer with. Wear on the plane and/or during transit. Throw this over a camisole for a more demure look or wear buttoned up as a stand alone top. Choose cable-knit or a piece woven in cashmere or wool if youre traveling somewhere chilly. For balmy weather, a sheer cotton blend or flowy jersey style will do!

Easily a scarf, sarong or pareo, this versatile piece of fabric is always handy to have around. Keep one with you for extra warmth on the plane or carry one around in your purse for quick coverage during unexpected weather changes. Cashmere and silk blends can be used during both cool and warm temperatures. Try to avoid acrylic because youll save yourself the trouble of static cling!

The bane of a self-professed diehard stiletto lover. Agreed–BUT, even the flat can be sexy! What with the rise of the ballet slipper, charming boat shoes, vintage loafer, or smoking slipper, one would actually have a hard time not finding pavement-friendly options. Save yourself the midday limp thats likely to manifest from trekking around on four inch heels! Besides, is there anything more alluring than a woman skipping around town without a care in the world?

The ultimate multi-tasker. This little accessory holds all your essentials like cards, money, passport and lipstick. Insert into your carry-all travel tote during the day and use it by itself at night. The wristlet can double as your evening clutch and there are plenty of styles out there that come with detachable chains or handles.

The classic must-have piece. Black pants are crucial because they can be dressed up and they can be dressed down. This neutral color goes with anything and camouflages minor mishaps (nobody will ever notice where that wayward drop of wine fell). Do go shopping for ones that fit you best: pants with a slight flare will help slim and elongate frames, straight-legged cuts work best for bountiful hips and fitted skinnies work perfectly for going out!
