10 of Our Jet Set Bests

Key fashion MUST-HAVES for travelling.

To all the jet-setters and go-getters out there, we have a few things we need to get off our chest; 1: we’re green with envy, 2: we wish you safe travels and 3: we have about 10 items that we insist you pack. 

Words of wisdom when travelling: keep it functional! We don’t expect you to get off a 12-hour flight dressed to the nines with a face beat to perfection and heels so high you feel like you’re back in the air. No, we’re simply suggesting that you take heed of WHAT you should take with on your crusade. Narrowing down the functional faves from our checklist, this should be the foundation of any mini capsule suitcase.

Bagging the Travel Scheme

Probably the most important item of them all. We selected a backpack as our last travel must-have. It holds much more than an average-sized handbag and we love the burgundy leather; it’s a playfully designed bag in a classic shade and fabric. / Getty
