Top 5 Travel Necessities

Blanket Scarf: Whether you need a wrap to keep you warm on the airplane, a chilly evening, or to cover up in modest locations such as churches or temples, a blanket scarf is your go-to. The Aritzia blanket scarf is beautiful and affordable. We especially like the Wilfred Gloomy Days Blanket, made with Australian wool and dip-dyed for an ombre effect. Wilfred, $85

Trolley Bag: A convenient and reliable carry-on bag is essential to streamlining your travel experience. There are some items worth the investment, and a sturdy bag is one of them. Our Trolley Suitcase is made of gray canvas, detailed with black straps that locks with an attached key, and has both a side and center pocket to separate your delicate items. JY Voyage, $390

Sun Hat: It is universal knowledge that sunscreen is a must, but a sun hat is another great way to stay protected from the harmful rays. We love a good Panama hat like this stylish one by Sensi Studio, which is hand-woven by indigenous artisans in the Andes from toquilla palms and finished with a black grosgrain band. Sensi Studio, $120

Dress: Dresses are our number one packing recommendation when you travel because they are so efficient. One item of clothing can make up an entire outfit, rather than having to fit multiple pieces into your suitcase. Many dresses can also be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Our jersey dresses are super comfortable and go well with heels or a flat sandal. JY Voyage Gigi Dress, $380

Sunglasses: Lastly, of course you need a great pair of sunnies. Le Specs makes perfect tortoiseshell glasses that have a subtle cat-eye, which goes well with all face shapes. Plus they have 100% UV protection. Le Specs, $70
