When it comes to packing the “right” things for a trip, renowned fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg said it best...
“I get ideas about what’s essential when packing my suitcase.”
You probably know that the biggest mistake people make when packing is over-packing. You want to pack only what is necessary, but no more. So what are those basic things any woman should include?
Case Elegance offers this list of 8 basic, versatile pieces you’ll want to be sure to pack for that next trip:
A Feminine Blouse
A blouse lends feminine appeal to every look. Tie-neck blouses offer versatility and can be worn up or down at any time of year. Cold weather will call for a jacket or sweater. Pick a neutral color that go with blacks, grays, blues, and other colors.
Sunglasses are an essential item! They are a fashion statement but also shield against hazardous UV light. We suggest a high-quality pair of Ray-Bans. Ray-Ban is the world's most iconic eyewear brand and carries fashionable styles that flatter any face shape.
Cool Walking Shoes
Regardless of your travel plans, you must have comfortable walking shoes. Adidas’s classic ‘Stan Smith’ design leather sneakers are stylish, comfortable and offer maximum ventilation. They also look good with everything from skinny jeans to floaty skirts.
A Weekender Bag
The Mfeo Travel Canvas Shoulder Weekender Bag is perfect for any savvy traveler. Throw all your weekend essentials into this handy carry-on bag. It has lots of pockets for cell phones, books, keys, passports, wallets, etc.
Ankle Boots work with everything. Invest in a high-quality leather pair and they’ll become the second most comfortable footwear in your closet after your runners. Isabel Marant ankle boots are made from superior leather with round toe, wood-like heels and side zip-up closure. With a comfortable fit, they give you that polished sleek appeal.
A Cashmere Sweater
Every woman needs a cashmere sweater. They are versatile, lightweight, incredibly luxurious and only become softer with time. To get the most bang for your buck, opt for a 100 percent cashmere buy like JENNIE LIU J CASHMERE Women's Long Sleeve Pullover Crew Neck Sweater.
An Impeccably Tailored Blazer
Think blazers are just for business wear? Think again. Consider the BCBGeneration Women's Tuxedo Blazer . It’s specially designed to suit any occasion from classy to elegant and perfect for work. This is the perfect layering piece for over a dress or blouse. A tuxedo blazer adds a stylish look to any ensemble.
A Timeless Watch
Sure, you always have your iPhone, but a beautifully crafted watch is always stylish. Like the minimalistic collection of watches by Daniel Wellington. It has slim rose dials and a black, genuine leather Italian calfskin band. This time piece will add a touch of elegance to any wardrobe.
If “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, consider taking a friendly pair of diamond earrings. Clearly a statement with any wear, every woman needs to make the splurge and purchase a pair. May we suggest a twist on this classic accessory with edgy white diamond baguettes by La4ve Diamonds. Twenty-eight baguette diamonds are channel set on 14K white gold. They will provide a constant source of compliments.
Since earrings are on the list, may we suggest the Case Elegance Genuine Saffiano Leather Travel Jewelry Organizer. It will allow you to stow your earrings as well as necklaces, bracelets pendants, and anklets in a compact case that can slip into your purse or carry-on bag. Truly a worry-free way to travel with your jewelry!
