“What I like to do is always wear my heaviest jacket on the plane. I find that regardless of where I go, it always gets chilly up in the air, and I want to be covered and cozy. This Topshop leather jacket and sleeveless vest make the absolute perfect travel companions and are super-versatile layering pieces.” — Ania Boniecka
“Since I love traveling light but hate to have that ‘I packed five different hats but forgot my socks’ moment (which has frankly happened more times than I’m proud to admit), I’ve perfected a baggage-packing routine where I take the minimum amount of stuff with the maximum variety and use.” — Elif Filyos
“I like to plan my outfits around some key items and corresponding activities. For example, take this gray jersey tank top from Topshop. I can make it work as a beach tank, a casual top to an evening look with a fancy skirt, or wear it to a yoga class.” — Justine Iaboni
“Staycations are so much more stress-free and enjoyable for me; I’d much rather pack up my little Fiat 500 for a weekend getaway than board a plane. Accessories are easy to pack, as they’re much smaller than clothing and can really change up the look of a basic outfit. I love sunglasses more than anything, and these aviators from Michael Kors make me feel like a rock star, even when I’m dressed casually.” — Nathalie Martin
“My major mission with each trip is to manage all my packing in one carry-on, and this Ricardo Beverly Hills beauty is the perfect piece. With compartments for shoes, laundry, and any other smaller items, it’s really the best of both worlds: the organization of a full suitcase but the ease of a carry-on (and best of all, it’s unbelievably light).” — Alexandra Grant
