Leaving the house before any kind of travel basically always induces a frenzy. Do you have your charger? Your wallet? Enough clothing? And so on and so forth. Unfortunately, all of those scattered last-minute thoughts tend to be limited to the absolute essentials, not necessarily the items that make you comfortable and at ease while traveling. Everyone's travel needs vary, but if there's any group of people who know the ins and outs of efficient packing and carry-on essentials, it's celebrity stylists.
These people dress other human beings for a living, and this includes much more than the red carpet. In fact, the majority of a stylists job is dressing their celebrity clients for their day-to-day lives and vacations, too (and, yes, sometimes the more glamorous moments). After years of experience, these women know what frequently makes a travel experience a positive one for not just themselves, but their clients as well. So, naturally, we tapped them for intel.
Ahead, find out what some of the industry's favorite celebrity stylists claim to never travel without. The next time you walk out the door headed to your new destination, we recommend checking these items off your list—you know, in addition to your toothbrush and pajamas.
"If you know me, my uniform is a feminine minidress, and I always travel in one because normally I am going straight from the plane to set or to a client or to a fitting. It's a no-fail way to look put together, even after a red-eye."
"My friend Michelle Waugh makes the coziest, most delicious coats, and when traveling in cooler months, I wear this boyfriend version on the plane. It's perfect for wearing layers under and doubles as a blanket on the flight when you run out of carry-on room."
