As we finally begin making our longed for vacation plans, it’s time to get your travel arsenal in order. Fashion Director Sarah Meikle curates the must-have chic travel basics you need for all those upcoming trips.


Why we love it: “I own this ultra soft grey cashmere set, it’s incredibly soft and chic. The zippered bag stores the blanket and eye mask but can also be used as a pillow, which is so cool and practical.”


Why we love it: “This Tumi piece is super lightweight, yet durable and the shiny black finish gives it a cool vibe. It has 4 wheels, so it’s easy to maneuver through the airport or streets and I love that it’s expandable, if you splurge and buy too many things on your trip.”


Why we love it: “Anya Hindmarch’s In-Flight cosmetic case is clear, so I can easily see my lip balm or hand cream mid-flight. The burgundy print is glam and the fact it’s trimmed with recycled coated canvas is a bonus.”


Why we love it: “This cute portable trip planner and diary has packing lists, medical details, contacts, pre-trip checklists, to-do lists, and pages to fill up with your most exciting travel moments. “


Why we love it: “I love all things Herschel. The Raynor passport holder (in either gray or the wine color) elevates the basic passport holder with its unique finish and card slots. I always use mine as a wallet too when I travel.”


Why we love it: “This flat shoe from Vince feels like a slipper, so it’s perfect for the plane, your hotel room and even long strolls exploring a new city (thanks to its rubber sole) It’s so incredibly comfortable, will slips on and off effortlessly and quietly and even expand to accommodate those long haul swollen feet.


Why we love it: “This burgundy beauty by Tory Burch is the perfect carry on bag, the color will go with everything. It’s super soft but not slouchy, so it holds its shape well and has inner zippered compartments to keep you super organized. I hate when small items roll around at the bottom of a bag.”


Why we love it: “These cute refillable TSA approved containers come in a pack of 4 and are leak proof, so you can wash out, refill and end travel spillage disasters I’m obsessed.”  


Why we love it: This chic tan leather ‘Gadget Travel Bag’ is an organizational must-have for all your tech and electronics.  Featuring 7 different sized slots and a bonus concealed pocket for money, get ready, get organized and go.”


Why we love it: “I have been using Mario Badescu’s Rosewater Facial Mist since I was a teenager, and now my teenage girls steal mine. I love all three fragrances in the line, but the rosewater smells amazing and is soothing and calming to my skin, so perfect for an inflight refresh, or anytime.”


Why we love it: “I never leave home, or board a plane without noise-canceling headphones and these are chic, discreet, wireless and Bluetooth enabled, so I can pair and share and make everything sound more ambient.”


Why we love it: “I love the family owned New York-born skincare brand Malin + Goetz, the products are gentle, effective and address lots of concerns. This compact travel-size set features everything you need for your face, hair and body including their Grapefruit Cleanser, Vitamin E Moisturize Body Wash, Body Lotion and Peppermint Shampoo and Cilantro conditioner.”


Why we love it: “I save these gray sleep socks exclusively for when I travel as they are the softest 3 ply cashmere, so they are heavenly for in-flight feet and look super chic in cable knit gray.”


Why we love it: “This is my go-to cozy sweater for travel. The classic camel color is chic, and it’s comfy oversized roomy fit and slight mock neck is perfect for snuggling up on the plane.”
