- With the days of unlimited carry-on baggage becoming
obsolete, a strategic well thought-out plan for taking
necessities of life with us on our business and recreational
travels, is certainly a key ingredient of any succesful
- Remember: "Less is More" and unless your
destination involves a lengthy cruise, few situations
would dictate much more than the following suggestions.
- For the Woman: The staple of a knit skirt, matching
knit cardigan or blazer, a pair of slacks and walking
shorts along with 4-5 tops provides an endless variety
of combinations. And accessorized with a bright scarf
or a straw hat, a look can be quickly modified. Basic
black and navy will never disappear as travel favorites.
However, basic brown has now come into its own as a
basic and can also be used as a starting point for building
a travel wardrobe.
- For the Man: Two pair of slacks in tan, navy or gray
will always pull double duty along with a traditional
classic blazer. (Of course, the more casual men will
always prefer jeans or docker-style pants.) Look for
new options in fabrics such as microfiber and Tencel.
A comfortable pair of walking shorts and 4-5 knit polo
shirts (either short or long sleeved) can complete this
basic plan. Don't forget that not only do knit polos
pack exceedingly well, they provide a stylish "dressed
down" look under a blazer.
- For Everyone: The classic, well-cut T-Shirt in a neutral
color is great for layering if the climate dictates
or just for wearing solo.
- Remember, this wardrobe has to be adjusted to suit
your style, for very casual traveler (jeans & T-Shirt)
to the business traveler.
- Good luck and have fun!
