What items should I pack for a work trip?

Packing for a work trip should be, well, not a lot of work. To make it easy for you, we’ve narrowed down the essentials.

Must-Have #1: An Easy-To-Pack Black Dress

This LBD will take you stylishly from desk to dinner. A no-frills silhouette will keep you looking and feeling polished and chic at all times

Must-Have #2: Black Pumps

Sleek black pumps not only work hard, they play hard too.

Must-Have #3: Nude Sandals

If you’re going to bring another heeled footwear option, nude sandals are your best bet, as they lend well to a myriad of looks.

Must-Have #4: A Crisp White Blazer

Since it’s spring, go ahead and swap your standard black blazer for a fresh white version.

Must-Have #5: A Slouchy Army Jacket

If you’re lucky, you’ll have some downtime to explore the city and partake in a little shopping—wink, wink. A lightweight army jacket is perfect for combatting breezy spring temperatures.

Must-Have #6: A Shrunken or Oversized Jean Jacket

When the workday is done, substitute your tailored blazer for a casual jean jacket.

Must-Have #7: Chic Black Trousers

Tailored black trousers, cropped at or above the ankle, can pull together any outfit for a professional result.

Must-Have #8: Cropped Blue Jeans

Pack your favourite blue jeans with some stretch for off-duty excursions.

Must-Have #9: A Knee-Length Pencil Skirt

In black, this silhouette can be ultra flattering and styled for day or night with the switch of a top.

Must-Have #10: A Menswear-Inspired White Button-Up

Of course the most versatile piece in your closet should come along with you! Whether in silk or crisp cotton, we love the way this piece smartens up a pair of trousers or flirtatious skirt in a flash.

Must-Have #11: A Black or White T-Shirt

A worn-in tee, in either black or white, is great for low-key activities, and can even be paired with your blazer and trousers for a modern take on the suit look.

Must-Have #12: A Statement Necklace

A bold necklace can be the perfect conversation starter at networking events, while also adding an extra element of style to your look.

Must-Have #13: Pointed Flats

When wearing flats to the office, go for a pointed shape. With noteworthy details, the feminine shoe is just at home with tailored trousers as it is a pair of boyfriend jeans.
