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!)
