I don't think I'm alone in saying that I put more thought into what I wear when I travel than I do for any other occasion in life, so planning ahead when I have a trip coming up is paramount. Luckily, I have quite a few trips on my calendar over the next several trips and retailers are busy stocking up on all the spring trends, so I can't think of a better reason to start shopping for pieces to pack.
I always strive for versatility when I pack for trips, so much of what I focus on shopping for is in the basics realm. And although it may seem like the newest hot-off-the-runway trends are always bold and statement-making, that's hardly the case. Many of spring 2020's biggest trends fall squarely in the basics camp. As such, keep scrolling to shop the denim, tees, shoes, accessories and more that deserve a place in your suitcase this season and beyond.
Away's first-ever expandable suitcase is perfect for serial over-packers such as myself.
The Trends I'm Packing
The '70s are back (on the runways, at least), and sightly flared jeans are perhaps the easiest way to embrace the trend. Since half of my suitcase is usually reserved for denim, I'll definitely make room for a pair of flares.
I'm smitten with the wave of '90s-inspired bag trends on the market. It's become quite clear that hobo shoulder bags are the trend to own this spring, and it happens to be a great, easy-to-carry style for travel.
The cool way to wear shoes (even the most unexpected like style, like loafers) now is with cool socks. What was once considered "nerdy" is now chic. I, for one, love that it'll likely prevent blisters when walking a ton on trips.
