10 Clothing Items Every Travel Packing List Needs

Throughout my years traveling—whether to chic cities or rugged terrains—I have perfected my packing checklist. There’s no doubt every location (and every season) requires a slightly different attire, but on the whole, there are a handful of specific items I practically never travel without. These consist of versatile, practical, and chic basics that get me through a variety of events and activities when I travel, from café-hopping to sightseeing to drinks, dinners, and more.

If you’re looking for some packing guidance, below I’m sharing the essential items I always take with me when I travel, organized by category, to help you plan more efficiently. (This edit is based on destinations of more temperate climates in the spirit of summer, which is just around the corner!)
