Even if you're not finding yourself at the airport every month, between holidays, work trips, and vacations, most of us travel at least three times a year. And that's enough times to warrant a need for an arsenal of travel wardrobe basics, which is exactly what we're here to help you build. The added bonus of investing in a travel-friendly collection of basics is that while these pieces will save you time and effort when packing for countless trips to come, you'll also wear them on repeat for everyday life.

So how did we settle on the 16 basics we highlighted below? It really comes down to smart packing. You want to focus on versatile pieces that can be worn together and that don't easily wrinkle or take up a lot of room in your suitcase. Additionally, you want to pack stylish accessories that will be useful no matter your destination (e.g., walkable heels, timeless sunglasses, and the luggage to put everything in). So without further ado, shop the travel wardrobe basics that will make your life easier for the trip-filled years to come.

You probably have the urge to go trade in those airline miles right about now. We're right there with you.
