Pro Travellers Pack Smart: Don’t compromise on style or functionality !
Got big travel plans coming up? Well, congratulations! You’ve clearly got your priorities sorted. But now that you’ve made the plans, booked the tickets and created the itinerary, everyday, as your day of take off inches closer, so does time to pack! Love it, or hate it, holiday packing can be tricky for sure. You want to strike the perfect balance of comfort, good looks and functionality- only trouble is, most outfits are almost always mutually exclusive of the others.
But don’t panic yet. If you got past budgeting and peak season price hikes, this too shall pass. Assuming Summer and Winter are the two major global seasons (the third- a rainy weather only demands that you carry an umbrella, a raincoat, don’t wear white, or generally hide indoors) here’s a list of suitcase essentials you must never forget to carry, and how to procure them-
1. Trench Coat – There are few things in this world more multipurpose than an overcoat !
Trench Coat = Life Sorted
Or a full length coat, made of the material of your choosing and depending on exact weather conditions. This one is an obvious essential for winters, but also serves a purpose in other seasons. Wear it at the airport if you’re cold, or use it as a quick cover-up if you’re in a more conservative city/country. Choose smooth leather for the winter and breezy cotton for the summer.

2. Short Shorts – Read : Bare Essentials !

A no-brainer for beach holidays, again you’ll get use from this elsewhere too. Pair them with a fancy top and wear them to a club, lounge around your hotel or airbnb apartment in them, use them as jogging or activity shorts, they have value all around. You can even wear them in temperature controlled rooms in the winter, if for nothing else, then to layer up!
