Travel in Style: Packing Essentials for Your Next Adventure

Travel in Style: Packing Essentials for Your Next Adventure

Are you tired of arriving at your destination feeling frazzled and disheveled? Do you struggle to pack the right clothes and essentials for your trip? Look no further! In this post, I'll share the ultimate packing essentials for you to travel in style and comfort.

As I have an upcoming trip planned to Japan (10 day trip), I thought it'd be a good idea to share what I typically pack for a trip abroad. It goes without saying, but feel free to add or remove items as you see fit (everybody has different priorities and items they consider essentials).


Clothing Essentials

  • 3-4 versatile tops (t-shirts, button-downs, and a lightweight sweater; good options to layer and mix/match)
  • 2-3 pairs of pants (jeans, trousers, and shorts; same as the above, to create more options)
  • Undergarments and socks (at least 5-6 pairs; many accommodations have laundry options so you can refresh these)
  • A lightweight jacket or coat (which I typically wear on my flight, to save space in my luggage)
  • Comfortable walking shoes (so you can walk around lots and explore)
  • Dress shoes or nice sandals (good to have a second option)
  • A hat and sunglasses for added style (and sun protection)


Accessory Must-Haves

  • A quality watch (I like to have a stylish option other than my apple watch) 
  • A leather belt or travel wallet
  • A pack of travel-sized accessories (e.g., eye mask, earplugs)
  • A portable charger and cable
  • A travel adapter and converter (if necessary for international travel)
  • A reusable water bottle or coffee mug


Grooming and Toiletries

  • A travel-sized toiletry bag with essentials (toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.)
  • A shaving kit or electric razor
  • Deodorant
  • Grooming kit (comes in handy)
  • Sunscreen and/or lotion (ensure these are all under 100ml each)


Tech and Travel Accessories

  • A camera and tripod (there are lots of great compact options)
  • An esim (super convenient; saves you time and doesn't require you to go to kiosk when you arrive to your destination)
  • A pair of noise-cancelling headphones
  • A book or e-reader


Bonus Tips and Tricks

  • Roll your clothes to save space and reduce wrinkles
  • Pack multipurpose items (e.g., a travel towel)
  • Wear your heaviest or bulkiest items (e.g., coat, boots) on the plane
  • Use packing cubes or organizers to keep your luggage tidy
  • Leave some extra space in your luggage for souvenirs, gifts, and shopping


By following this packing list, you'll be well on your way to traveling in style and comfort. Remember to check the weather forecast and adjust your packing list accordingly. Happy travels and stay stylish!
