Top Minimalist Travel Gear & Travel Accessories for Women

Traveling light and efficiently begins with creating a travel capsule wardrobe and a minimalist, or carry-on sized , packing list. How minimalistic is completely up to you! Female travelers, especially solo female travelers, may want a higher level of security that a man would. Some travelers may have health or mobility issues they need to address in their packing. Despite the posts on social media, packing is not a competition. But we all can benefit from packing lighter.

We’ve travel-tested the items listed below and recommend them for today’s smart travelers! We indicate below the product name if the item is recommended for minimalist travel, sustainable travel, or extra security . All of these would be a great gift options for your favorite traveler, but I include in the tagline if it’s perfect as a small gift or stocking stuffer .

Electronics & Gear

Years ago, when we didn’t have so many amazing electronic gadgets, we all traveled ‘light’. But the utility of these devices is more than worth the weight. We just need to manage all the accessories that go along with the electronics! Here are our recommendations on the right travel accessories for your electronics:

At first glance the Peak Design Tech Pouch might not seem like it should be on a packing light list, but this pouch is so well designed that it takes the place of multiple charging cord organizers, small electronics cases, a flight bag, and even a purse.

On our long flights in South America, it carried my passport, travel documents, Apple Airpods Pro, wallet, iPhone & iPad mini, kindle, journal and pens, masks and antiseptic wipes, chargers & external power bank, and camera batteries. And I still had room for hand lotion, necessary meds, and a few cosmetics. At my destination I took out the tech stuff, attached a shoulder strap, and used it as a purse. My 2023 top pick.

Available on Peak Design or Amazon

Multi-head charger

Everyone who has traveled with a tangle of charging cords will appreciate a multi- head charger. These feature a plug on one end and multiple options for your devices on the other. If you’re an Apple user, you can find a multi-head cord that’ll charge your Apple watch, iPhone, and AirPods at the same time. And there are similar versions for Android users.

My current favorite is the tiny inCharge Keychain 6-in-1 charger . It has a USB cable plug and USB-C cable on one end, and lightning and USB-C on the other. I carry this charger and a small ‘lipstick’ power bank in my day bag for a quick charge of either my phone or ipad mini. (you can see this in the picture of my tech pouch above.)


Another option for convenient charging while traveling is a compact power strip. The Anker power strip will plug into one outlet and offer slots for multiple charging cords. Useful when staying on cruise ships or in older accommodations with few outlets.

External Power Bank/Charger

Keeping your devices charged while traveling can be crucial. You don’t want to run out of juice when you’re far from home so be sure to carry a compact portable charger. If you’re short on space, carry one of the lipstick-sized power bank . But if you will be away from electricity for longer, look for larger capacity models with fast-charging capabilities and multiple output ports to charge multiple devices simultaneously.

Universal Travel Adapter

A universal travel adapter is a must-have for any minimalist traveler. It replaces the need for multiple adapters for different countries, ensuring you can charge your devices anywhere in the world. Look for one with multiple USB ports to charge multiple devices simultaneously.


Apple AirPods Pro (and other noise-cancelling earbuds)

Bluetooth earbuds are fantastic on long flights when you don’t have room in your bag for over the ear headphones. Far and away the best noise canceling earbuds we’ve tried are the AirPods Pro . My husband, the music lover, swears by these.

If you’re not in the Apple ecosystem, look for great noise-canceling earbuds from Bose, JBL and other brands. I loved my Bose Quiet Comfort earbuds until I lost one while walking on a windy beach.

Pack a mini lantern in the event of power outage. Photo of a dark safari camp with only a lantern lit.

Mini Lantern/Flashlight

Nothing fancy about this but having a small flashlight that opens to become a lantern , is an essential accessory when I travel. I use my iPhone when I need a quick light, but for a trip where the electricity is not reliable (or non-existent!) I pack my mini lantern. It came in handy the night an elephant visited our camp in Botswana and took down the electricity.

This handy tool stays on my bedside table at home in case of power outage.

Solar Power Bank

A solar power bank is an eco-friendly accessory that uses solar power to charge your devices, making it a good source of energy when you’re traveling off the grid. Travelers committed to eco-friendly travel will appreciate that these solar chargers reduce the reliance on traditional electricity sources, making it a great choice for sustainability.

There are many varieties of these power banks available. Some have built-in flashlights and USB ports; some can be charged by electricity as well as solar. Pick the one that works for you.


AirFly Pro Bluetooth Audio Transmitter

The Twelve South AirFly Pro is an audio transmitter that connects your wireless headphones or earbuds to devices that don’t have Bluetooth capabilities, such as older airplane entertainment systems, and most travel tour headsets. Using an AirFly (or similar), you can enjoy a more comfortable audio experience during long flights, or in situations where headphone wires may be inconvenient. The AirFly Pro will connect to two sets of headphones which is especially nice if you want to watch a movie together on the flight.


Travel Tripod

I have a basic Gorillapod travel tripod , which is compact enough to fit in my day bag, but strong enough to hold a phone or mirrorless camera. When we’re traveling with bigger cameras and gear, we need a stronger, yet still lightweight and portable, tripod. We’re using a relatively moderately priced travel tripod now but have heard great things about the Peak Design carbon fiber tripods from other travelers. (have to save our money for that one!).

Kindle eReader

Use the Kindle app on your phone or tablet if you’re able, but if you’re like me and an avid nighttime reader, the Kindle Paperwhite is easier on your eyes and doesn’t use blue light that interferes with your (eventually) falling asleep. It’s also waterproof so safer to use by the pool or on the beach.

Fisher Space Pen

A great gift choice for any traveler! The Fisher Space pen will write upside down, underwater, in zero gravity and at extreme temperatures. Pretty much anywhere a traveler can think of to go. (I use it on the plane for filling out customs forms… Ha!)

Phone Lanyard

This is a new travel accessory for me. I originally purchased a phone lanyard to carry my phone while cycling. It’s held securely and is easy to access for a quick picture, or if I need a GPS check. But recently I’ve taken to wearing it in cities to prevent snatch and grab thefts. I wear it around my neck, but you could loop it around your wrist if you’d be more comfortable.

The Latest Cell Phone!

Updating your cell phone offers many benefits for travelers. Besides the obvious benefit of communicating with loved ones and emergency services, a cell phone offers GPS navigation, aids in language translation, gives access to valuable travel apps, doubles as a camera for capturing memories, and ensures entertainment during downtime. In case of emergencies, a state of the art cell phone can also be a vital lifeline, making it a practical and lightweight addition to your minimalist travel essentials and an essential travel accessory for women.

An updated cell phone is always a good travel gift! Today’s phone cover many of the older travel necessities: camera, GPS, translator, alarm, entertainment.

In-flight minimalist gear for comfort. Image: inflatable pillow, ereader, compression socks, earbuds, collapsible water bottle

Travel Accessories for In-Flight Comfort

Air travel is tough these days. Long lines, short tempers, and cramped quarters don’t create the ideal environment for a relaxing trip. Spend a little time before your flight planning on how you’ll stay comfortable on your long flight . And if you’ve a bit of space in your bags, consider adding a few items that’ll ease the journey.

Travel Pillow / Inflatable Pillow

A good night’s sleep is essential for a successful journey. Opt for a compact travel pillow that can be compressed and attached to your luggage when not in use. Memory foam and inflatable options provide excellent comfort without taking up much space. My go-to neck pillow is an inflatable one from IKEA.

Silk Pillowcase

Another option for ensuring a good sleep is to pack a silk pillowcase that can be stuffed with a sweater or jacket. These pillowcases come in several sizes. I use a ‘toddler’ sized pillow for in-flight comfort. On long-haul flights I use my inflatable neck pillow AND an additional pillow behind my back for support. Add my foot hammock (below) and I can almost convince myself I’m flying in First Class! Almost…

Airplane Foot Hammock

The Airplane Foot Hammock is far from minimalist but it’s a lifesaver on a long-haul flight in an Economy Class seat. Simply loop the strap over your tray table’s support, adjust to your comfort level and you have a bit of a footrest.

Weight: 9 oz. (255 g.)

If you’re a light sleeper or have noise sensitivity earplugs may be one of your most useful travel accessories. Whether you’re dealing with noisy hotel neighbors, loud street sounds, or the hum of an airplane engine, earplugs offer help.

You’ll find simple foam disposable earplugs at your local pharmacy or purchase reusable ones that filter for specific sounds online.

Day to Day Travel Accessories for Women

Here are some of my favorite day to day travel accessories. I’ve chosen items that can simplify your journey, enhance your well-being, and make those hours on the move an enjoyable part of your adventure. Let me know if there’s something I’ve missed!

Travel Journal or Notebook

It’s important to have someplace to keep track of travel info and save thoughts along the way. This can be as simple as a travel app on your phone, but I like to have a hard copy of important information in case the phone is lost, or internet is unavailable. And I also like to jot down memories along the way.

I use a simple Field Notes book for short trips and a bit larger Leuchtturm booklet for a longer or more complicated trip. Both fit easily into my day bag.

Eating Utensils, including a reusable straw

Packing reusable utensils is a eco-friendly choice at home or on the road. It promotes environmental responsibility by reducing single-use plastic waste, ensures food hygiene, and provides convenience for dining on-the-go or in areas where disposable utensils may be scarce. Additionally, carrying your own utensils can demonstrate cultural respect in some regions where it’s customary.

Carrying your own reusable utensils and a straw is an easy way to make any of your travels more eco-friendly. But for adventure travelers, campers, etc. a small utensil kit is mandatory.

Minimalist travel gear, including collapsible walking pole and packable rain jacket. Image of man and woman in the mist of Machu Picchu

Folding Walking Stick

Carrying hiking poles on a flight is a challenge. You can pack them in your check-in luggage, but most airlines won’t allow them in carry-on luggage without a doctor’s note. We have found that you CAN usually bring a collapsible walking stick in your cabin bag if it doesn’t have a pointy end. (Check with your airline to make sure!)

I carried an inexpensive aluminum collapsible hiking pole (pictured) to Peru this year and it was a huge help while climbing around ancient Incan ruins.

MINIMALIST | Weight: 10.3 oz. (292 g.)

Packable Rain Jacket

A necessity for travel. I have a nice looking packable Cole Haan rain coat for city travel, and a waterproof rain jacket from Red Ledge (shown above) for nature adventure travel. Both compress to take up little room in my suitcase.

Travel Umbrella

Not a rain jacket lover? Pack an ultralight travel umbrella in your bag. It’ll also serve as a sun shade on hot days.

Collapsible Water Bottle

A reusable water bottle is both an eco-friendly and minimalist choice. Most travelers are very aware of the problem of plastic pollution and will appreciate a reusable bottle. Choose a collapsible or foldable design that can be easily stashed away when not in use.


Reusable utensils, water bottles, and solid toiletries are just some of the gift ideas for eco-friendly travelers.

Portable Fan / Cooling Scarf

Not always in my packing list, but if I’m anticipating long touring days in hot climates, I’ll add a handheld fan. If I’m traveling with minimal luggage, I’ll carry a cooling scarf . Just soak the scarf for 20 minutes and you’ll stay cool(er) for hours.

Magnet for Securing Bags, etc.

Magnetic hooks? Not something I thought I’d travel with but magnetic hooks , or Bagnet magnets, are a game changer if you’re on a ship or in a sleeper train with little storage room. Just stick the magnet to the wall and hang your coat, bathing suit, etc.

This is the perfect solution for keeping your purse off the floor in a public bathroom!

Carabiner / Heroclip

A carabiner can be a valuable addition to your travel gear. It’s perfect for securing your belongings, whether you’re attaching bags to fixed points to prevent theft or hanging gear to dry. Carabiners can also be used to attach water bottles or jackets to your travel bag.

I carry a Heroclip carabiner when I travel. Heroclips take carabiners to another level by adding a swiveling outer piece which can be used as a hook. I use this to connect my personal item to my carry-on bag or keep my daypack off the ground. You’ll find many other uses, I’m sure! The small Heroclip will hold up to 50 lbs and only weighs a bit over 1 ounce.

Women's health and hygiene for travel. Image of woman looking over dunes.

Women’s Health and Hygiene Accessories

Packing sunscreen is crucial for protecting your skin from sun damage while you’re traveling. People often underestimate how quickly they will burn while enjoying a few hours on vacation. Whether you’re exploring a new city, lounging on a beach, or engaging in outdoor activities, sunscreen helps to prevent painful sunburns, and, most importantly, safeguards your long-term health.

Look for reef-safe sunscreen if you’ll be snorkeling or enjoying other sports in tropical waters.

Solid Toiletries

Packing solid toiletries offers several advantages for travelers. First,

  • Solid Toiletries are more compact and lightweight than liquid counterparts, helping you save space and reduce the weight of your luggage.
  • Solid toiletries are less likely to leak or spill, preventing messy accidents and preserving the contents of your bag.
  • Solid toiletries are TSA-friendly, as they don’t need to be included in your quart-sized liquid bag during security checks.

From solid shampoo bars to toothpaste tablets, these eco-friendly options also contribute to reducing plastic waste, making them an environmentally responsible choice. Be sure to try the items at home to make sure to find the solid toiletry that works for you.

But if you can’t find a solid alternative, minimize your packing with …

Minimal Toiletry Containers

Liquid makeup and toiletries take up a lot of space in your luggage. And most of your at-home-bottles are way beyond the TSA approved size of 3 ounces. If possible, decant a bit of your makeup into small containers (like contact lens cases) and invest in a few travel-sized, leak-proof silicone bottles for your shampoo, etc. These are not only space-saving but also eco-friendly as they reduce single-use plastic waste.

Bonus points: Reuse bottles you may have around your home.

Personal Hygiene Essentials for Female Travelers

  • Diva Cup – a reusable feminine hygiene product.
  • Restroom Kit – each purse sized kit contains a toilet seat cover, toilet paper, and a hand wipe.
  • Venus to Mars female urinal. A great help when ‘first world’ toilets aren’t available.

Travel Hair Tools

I travel domestically with a simple flat iron , but when I’m flying internationally, and short on space, I rely on hair dryers in my accommodations, or just let my curly hair have a vacation.

There are a lot of excellent travel hair accessories available today, curling irons, blow dryers, etc. all in compact size. Most work with dual voltage but be sure to check before packing for the trip.

Travel Electric Toothbrush

If you use an electric toothbrush at home, consider purchasing a travel version before your next holiday. It’s hard to change your brushing routine!

A travel electric toothbrush comes in a compact size making it easy to stow in your luggage, and ensuring your dental hygiene continues while on the road. Many models come with long-lasting batteries or rechargeable options, and some newer models are being made of eco-friendly bamboo.

Of course there are lots of options for non-electric (manual??) travel toothbrushes!

Packing a few safety accessories can ensure you relax and enjoy your trip. photo of a portable lock box, first aid kit and luggage lock.

Pack for Safer Travel

Adding a few safety and security accessories to your packing list is a proactive approach to ensuring a stress-free travel experience. Most likely you will never need these items, but knowing they’re there may give you peace of mind so you can focus on enjoying your trip.

Travel First Aid kit

Put together a travel first aid kit that works for you and your destination. Make a comprehensive kit if you intend to camp and hike, or keep it minimal if you’re traveling to a local city. I keep a kit in my car that came pre-packed with everything I might need while out with the family or on a road trip, but winnow that down to a small kit when I’m traveling light.

Every kit should include the essentials like adhesive bandages, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, and the prescription medications you might need. I usually add 24 hours worth of OTC medicines for common ailments like a cold or stomach trouble.

For a more extensive kit consider adding items like insect repellent, burn cream, anti-diarrheal medication, motion sickness pills, COVID tests, and a thermometer.

Secure Strap for Camera or Travel Bag

Ramp up the secure carry of your gear by switching out regular camera or purse straps for a reinforced one. I use a strap from Pacsafe which is slash proof, can be locked to a stationary object, yet is not too heavy. It’s easy to attach it to my purse or day bag and just makes me feel safer.

Security Alarm for Hotel Door

A portable door alarm adds an extra layer of security and peace of mind, especially for solo travelers. It can be attached to the door handle or door jamb, and if someone tries to force entry, it will emit a loud alarm sound alerting you and hopefully deterring the intruder. Having a compact door alarm ensures you feel safe and secure in your room, allowing you to rest easier during your travels.

One of my favorite travel accessories for women and men!!

Lockable Safe for Hotel Rooms or Beach Chairs

Packing a lockable safe, such as a portable travel safe or lockbox, can be a good idea depending on how you travel. Many accommodations have a safe built into a closet or cabinet, but when you leave your room to spend a day at the beach the valuables you carry – your phone, watch, wallet – are unprotected. After years of one of us standing guard over our stuff, we’ve invested in a small portable lockbox . We can clip the small bag to our chair, bike, or whatever, and enjoy the time together.

Look for a case that suits your needs. If you’re camping or staying in shared areas, consider a case that provides a secure space for everything, important documents, electronics, and money. If you’re only expecting to be at a hotel pool, you can get away with something smaller.

Packing a portable safe can be invaluable in emergency situations, making it a practical and reassuring addition to your travel gear.

New Favorites: Bags and Packing Accessories

Choosing the right travel bags and packing gear is the first step towards packing efficiently. Once you have the tools you need you can begin the packing process.

Some of you may be able to carry all your needs in a backpack. If I’m off on a short trip, a weekend getaway or a road trip, I still pack in a lightweight duffel/backpack. But as I’m older now and have nagging shoulder issues on a longer trip I opt for a lightweight wheeled carry-on and a 12-20L day bag.

Travel Bags

This is your primary luggage. Luggage makers are adding a lot of bells and whistles to their latest bags – charging ports, fold-out closets, etc., but I recommend opting for the lightest and most durable bag you can find. Light for obvious reasons, but durable also for those times when the gate agents decide to check all carry-ons.

As I’m still traveling locally with my trusty duffel, the Tom Bihn Techonaut, and internationally with a Eagle Creek spinner, I have no new product to recommend. But I’d LOVE to hear what bag you’re carrying!

The day bag or travel purse is the bag you’re going to be carrying the most. Maximize the size of this if you want to use it as your airline personal item, but make sure it’s something you’ll also be happy to carry walking around a new city or joining a bus tour.

Here are my 2023 favorites :

Pacsafe Citysafe CX 17L Backpack

Designed especially for women, the Pacsafe Citysafe CX backpack is a great bag for international travel. It’s stylish, has plenty of room for personal items and has multiple security features. It’s a backpack you can confidently wear on your back without worrying about theft. And as with all the best bags, there is an easy access organizational panel where you can stash your most often needed items.

There’s a padded laptop sleeve making this a good choice for business trips too!

SECURITY/ANTI-THEFT | Weight: 1.55 lbs (703 g.) Made with ECONYL® nylon and recycled polyester.

Very similar to the Pacsafe backpack in style but without security features is the Baggallini Soho backpack. I didn’t end up keeping it but really liked this bag. The straps were quite comfortable, and I loved the way the bag opened fully to access contents.

patagonia tote pack

Patagonia Ultralight Travel Tote Pack

I purchased the Patagonia Ultralight Travel Tote Pack for a cycling trip where we were limited on luggage size. This bag is remarkably well designed for such a lightweight bag. It can be carried as a tote, or as a backpack, and packs into itself to carry in your larger carry-on.

I purchased the black and dressed it up with a scarf when visiting vineyards. Though tougher than most packable bags, I wouldn’t check this bag. But fortunately, the size and squish factor make it unlikely you’ll have to give it up at the gate.

MINIMALIST | Weight: 13 oz. (368 g.) Made in a Fair Trade Certified™ factory with recycled nylon ripstop and recycled polyester. Patagonia is a certified B corporation.

Osprey Ultralight Dry Stuff Backpack

The Osprey Ultralight Dry Stuff Pack 20L was my daypack in the Galapagos Islands. Waterproof with plenty of space for my snorkeling goggles and inflatable safety vest. And it packed down to nothing when I flew home.

This is a dry bag that can be carried as a backpack, rather than a dedicated backpack. It has little organization and style but was perfect for a trip like mine. I wouldn’t recommend it for a trip where you’d need to carry it all day.

MINIMALIST | Weight: 7 oz. (194 g.) bluesign® approved 100% recycled 40D high-tenacity nylon

Pacsafe Stylesafe 2L Sling Pack

The Pacsafe Stylesafe sling pack is my go-to hip pack when I’m on a cycling holiday. An unobtrusive pack, it carried my passport, credit cards, phone, medicine, and a small first aid kit. Just a bit more robust than the usual money belts travelers carry and features an RFID blocking passport holder.

On overseas flights I loved that I could lock it to my airplane seat when I needed to get up. (I walk a LOT on overseas flights to avoid DVT.)

MINIMALIST | SECURITY/ANTI-THEFT | Weight: 8 oz. (227 g.)

DISCLAIMER: These are my 2023 favorites. There are many new travel bag options and I have only tested a few. I chose the bags I purchased based on reviews from fellow travelers, durability, and my travel itineraries. They may not work for your travel needs. Read Best Personal Carry-On Bags for your Flight and Travel Day Bags for Women , and Camera Bags for Women for more suggestions on bags I’ve tested.

Packing Organizers

Some people are happy to just roll their clothes and pack them. But I find it more efficient to use these small, lightweight bags that’ll help me stay organized during long trips .

Packing Cubes

Packing cubes and minimalist travel accessories in backpack

Packing cubes are a game-changer for travelers looking to stay organized while keeping it minimal. These lightweight, zippered cubes help you categorize your clothes, making it easy to find what you need without rummaging through your whole bag. They also compress clothing, creating extra space in your luggage for other essentials. Opt for different sizes and colors to best utilize the bags.

I hesitated before trying a clean/dirty packing cube , but ended up loving it for keeping dirty clothes away from clean. The cube has a flexible divider which allows you to pack it full of clean clothes when you leave home but have a bag of dirties on the way home.

Don’t forget to pack some sort of a laundry bag to keep your clean clothes fresh!

Stasher Silicone Storage Bags

My daughter gifted me two Stasher storage bags a few years ago. I used them in the kitchen instead of plastic bags, but when I realized how well they worked for travel, I immediately bought more. I use them for snacks on the plane, for liquids like sunscreen, and have even used one a toiletry bag. They are made of food grade silicone and come in multiple colors and shapes.

SUSTAINABLE | STOCKING STUFFER Stasher is a certified B corporation.

OK, I haven’t yet purchased this item but realized how smart it was to have dedicated shoe bags when we were hiking in Peru. My friend’s shoe bags kept her muddy boots away from her travel clothes. I’ll be shopping for these when we book our next adventure trip.

(Or…do what I do and use old shower caps to cover the shoe bottoms)

Pill Pouches / Medicine Container

At some point in your life, you find yourself needing to carry medication wherever you go. I have a cute medicine container I carry in my purse, but when I’ve been traveling, I carry prescription medications in a bigger pill case. Now that I’ve discovered pill pouches I use them at home and when traveling.

I fill one of these small, reusable, see-through pouches with what I might need on the flight, e.g., 2 ibuprofen, 1 antacid, melatonin, etc. The small bag slips easily into my flight bag or purse. I do the same when we’re heading out on the bike, or out to dinner. And I use them for OTC medications when I don’t want to bring a whole bottle, e.g., 14 tablets of melatonin. Label the pouches so you won’t get confused.

Note: When I carry prescription medications overseas, I carry a copy of my physician’s prescriptions with me or I carry the medication in its original prescription bottle.

Apple AirTag/Luggage Tracker

This won’t solve the problem of lost luggage but at least by including an Apple AirTag or equivalent, you’ll be able to track your bag as it makes its way back to you.


Save space by packing natural fiber clothing that can be worn multiple ways. Willow merino dress by wool&. #merinowool #travelclothing

Clothing & Travel Accessories for Women

Investing in multi-functional clothing for a capsule wardrobe is a basis of minimalist travel. Adding pieces like convertible pants that turn into shorts or reversible scarves to your travel wardrobe can save you precious suitcase space. But before you purchase anything , consider how you can use the pieces you already have for different purposes. For example, a simple dress can be belted to become a tunic or worn over biking shorts as a skirt.

Clothing from Sustainable Fabrics

My regular readers won’t be surprised to see me recommending sustainable fabrics for their travel wardrobes. For my new readers, merino wool, bamboo, TENCEL, etc. are all great fabrics for traveling because they pack light, resist odors, and are easy to care for. I don’t advocate going out and buying a whole new wardrobe in these fabrics, but when you’re in need of a new travel shirt or dress, consider investing in natural fibers.

Two of my newest ventures into merino wool clothing have been fabulous for travel – a merino bra from Branwyn and a merino neck buff by WURU.

My favorite brands for eco-friendly, ethically made, pieces are also the brands I’ve chosen to partner with – Encircled , Toad & Co. , wool& , WURU , and Unbound Merino . There are more and more companies getting into the sustainability market (yay!) so find a brand that works for you. And check with second hand stores like the online ThredUp to be even more eco-friendly.

Many producers of organic clothing are small brands working towards sustainability. Check their websites for more information. A few that have already received B Corporation certification – Encircled, Eileen Fisher, Athleta. For more tips on traveling sustainably read Tips for Responsible Tourism

You’ll see scarves recommended on most packing lists and there’s a good reason for this. A bright colored scarf can add interest to a simple capsule wardrobe. Wear it around your neck, over your shoulders, or wrap it as a belt. But a scarf offers even more options; a scarf can also be used as a covering when visiting sacred sites, a light blanket on a flight, or even a tablecloth for an impromptu picnic.


My favorite variation on the scarf theme is the sleeve/sash by Diane Kroe. As the name implies, it’s a scarf with sleeves. Wear it around your neck for dinner and, when the evening gets cooler, slip your arms in the sleeves to create a shrug. OR tie it round your waist as a belt in a pinch.

MINIMALIST | Weight: 6 oz. (170 g.)

Packable Sun Hat

Another mandatory travel accessory for women AND for men. Find a hat that you’ll enjoy wearing to protect against sun damage. I’ve lost one loved one to skin cancer, and I don’t want to lose any of you.

Julahas Cape

These are investment pieces, but are great at home and on your travels. The beautiful Julahas capes are hand made by artisans in the Indian Himalayas and can be worn in many ways. They’re also great for snuggling under on chilly flights, so tuck a lightweight one into your carry-on bag.

An inexpensive addition to my travel wardrobe. As a ‘vintage’ woman I like to wear a skirt over leggings or cycling shorts. When I saw this reversible wrap skirt , I knew I had to try it. One side is a solid color, the other a print. and the skirt snaps securely in place on either side. I wear it on the pickleball court, as a swimsuit cover-up, and as a cute skirt for coffee with friends.

MINIMALIST | Weight: 7 oz (198 g.)

travel accessories for women include purchasing insurance for your trips. Image of woman at airport.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is an important option for every international or adventure traveler. Insuring your trip offers protection against events that can disrupt your plans, like trip cancellations due to illness, unforeseen family issues, lost luggage and other airline issues.

For years we have purchased insurance for our ‘big’ trips and have only had to file a claim three times, once for an airline strike, once for weather complications, and once for a death in the family. In all of these cases our claim was handled quickly and to our satisfaction.

But more importantly to us than the financial safeguard of travel insurance is that knowledge that if we have an injury, of suffer a medical emergency, we’ll get the treatment we need and will get a flight home. At this time in our lives this is essential for our travel well-being.

Having the right travel gear can significantly ease the challenges of travel. The travel accessories for women I’ve recommended simplify packing, while ensuring you’re comfortable and prepared for every situation. I hope that by selecting minimalist travel gear tailored to your needs, you can enjoy a smoother and more enjoyable journey, and really focus on having fun.

International Travel Must Haves


Before every overseas trip I take, I always use Compass Rose Packing Cubes to compress and organize my clothing.

Long inter national trips can seem daunting, but your journey will be a breeze with the right items. These international travel essentials will make your packing experience and travel days much easier. Plus, they’ll keep your things organized, fresh, and ready for adventure!


Luggage Tags and Trackers (Apple AirTag)

Trackers to Prevent Lost Luggage

With so many people traveling right now and airlines being overrun, lost luggage has unfortunately become a common occurrence. And even if you don’t check a bag, there’s always a chance of your carry-on being gate-checked. This is why luggage trackers have become major essentials for international travel . 

Tons of TFG readers have shared stories of lost luggage and their trusty trackers saving the day. One says they “prevented me from losing over $600 in belongings!”

They’ll also come in handy when you get to your destination — you can keep an eye on your luggage when you leave it at your accommodation or store it in your purse in case it gets lost or stolen. With so many options on the market that are compatible with any smartphone, these handy items are more than worth it for peace of mind.

We’ve rounded up the best lightweight luggage . And the best part? They’re all under 5lb!


Compass Rose Packing Cubes inside Delsey Turenne Carry On

Packing Cubes and Compression Bags to Organize Clothing

If you’re not already on the packing cube bandwagon, then get ready for your packing experience to be forever changed (especially if you’re an over-packer or are used to checking a bag)! 

For carry-on travel especially, readers adore the Compass Rose travel accessories packing cubes , which allow you to fit up to a few weeks’ worth of clothing inside your suitcase! 

There are so many awesome styles of packing cubes to suit your needs, your luggage situation, and your packing list that’ll help you organize everything and save valuable space. Plus, they’ll keep everything organized and minimize wrinkling, so they’ll no doubt be added to your international travel must haves ! 


BAGSMART Toiletries Travel Bag

Toiletry Organizer Bag to Downsize Toiletries

While there’s nothing wrong with using multiple pouches or ziplock bags, a toiletry organizer bag will be a serious game-changer for keeping your toiletries and cosmetics neat and organized. 

Must haves for international travel , toiletry bags will give you a designated place for all of your things and allow you to see everything clearly, which means no more digging around for specific items! 

And if you’re traveling somewhere you know will be short on countertop space like a cruise ship or a smaller hotel, a hanging toiletry bag is the perfect solution for keeping your products out of the way yet easy to access.


Kitsch Toiletry Pouch Set

Travel Containers for Decanting Toiletries

With some quality travel containers , you won’t have to leave any of your fave products at home, and you won’t have to worry about TSA limits, spills, or taking up too much space in your luggage. 

Lugging around full-sized products in your checked bag or trying to keep a bunch of teeny samples organized will be a thing of the past! Decanting your toiletries into these minimalist travel accessories will keep everything uniform, neat, and simplified. 

Follow our ultimate guide to creating the perfect travel toiletries list  and master the art of packing!


Vlando Small Travel Jewelry Organizer

Jewelry Organizer to Keep Precious Items Safe

Figuring out what jewelry to pack and how to pack it is a common topic of conversation in the TFG community. 

When it comes to keeping your pieces safe and sound, the best way to go is definitely a travel jewelry case ! These handy little travel organization accessories will separate your jewelry into various compartments so that nothing gets tangled or damaged. You’ll be able to see it all laid out clearly and always be sure everything is there and accounted for. And most options are so compact that they’ll easily fit inside a purse!


Etekcity Luggage Scale

Luggage Scale to Meet Baggage Requirements

A luggage scale might be something you hadn’t thought of before, but with the peace of mind it brings, you’ll want to use one of these cool travel accessories on every single trip to come! 

A portable luggage scale will ensure you’ll never need to pay for overweight baggage fees again — or wait in the ticket line stressing about it! Tiny and lightweight, these little scales just need to be lifted up while attached to your bag handle, and it’ll give you the bag’s weight instantly. 

Many TFGers see luggage scales as international travel necessities , to ensure their bags satisfy TSA requirements and to make sure they’ll be able to comfortably carry them throughout their travels. 


Tide Laundry Detergent Travel Packets

Laundry Travel Detergent for On the Go

If you’re traveling for an extended period of time, want to pack super light, or have some sporty activities planned, chances are you’ll need to do a bit of laundry. And instead of trying to find a laundromat or paying for overpriced laundry services, opt for some easy, hassle-free hand washing ! 

You should definitely add some travel laundry detergent to your travel packing essentials , as it’s super small, easy to pack, and makes for fresh and clean clothes while on the road. A lot of readers love detergent sheets because they’re thin and weightless yet highly effective once put into water. Other readers go for liquid detergent packets or solid soap, which are also TSA-friendly and mess-free!

Find out how to do laundry while traveling with three easy options!


Sea to Summit Travel Clothesline

Portable Clothes Line for Quick Washing

Now that washing your clothes is taken care of, you’ll need to make sure you can dry everything properly. Because most accommodations don’t offer dryers, you’ll need to find an efficient solution — and readers agree that hanging clothes over the shower or towel drying them usually doesn’t cut it. 

Enter a portable clothesline ! These essentials for travel are SO handy, as they’re compact and light as can be, taking up very little space in your luggage yet offering plenty of drying space when unwrapped. Look for something sturdy and easy to attach to various objects, and you’ll be able to dry everything from wet bathing suits and towels to full loads of laundry!


LARQ Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Refillable Water Bottle

In the midst of all your travel fun, you can’t forget to hydrate! Drinking enough water is especially important if you’re traveling by plane, which is notoriously drying. 

At the top of your air travel essentials list should be a refillable water bottle , making it easy to always have water on hand. After going through TSA, fill your bottle up and sip it often! Then, you can keep filling it up throughout the day and have it with you on those long sightseeing tours, relaxing beach days, or sporty adventures. 


Smyrna Original Turkish Beach Towel Cotton

Travel Towel

While it’s true that hotels and many other accommodations will have towels for you, frequent travelers know how much of a difference it makes to have your own travel towel packed. 

Travel towels are less bulky than traditional beach or bath towels, but they’re incredibly absorbent, quick-drying, and super cozy. Readers also like Turkish towels for the same reason. They’re some of the best luxury travel accessories : thin yet ultra-absorbent, and can even double as a throw or a picnic blanket! 

One TFGer says she always brings “A thin Turkish towel that I can use as a light blanket on the plane and as a beach towel or picnic blanket at my destination.” 

Europe Travel Essentials


I took the Travelon Anti-Theft Classic Messenger Bag to Italy in 2018, and it was perfect for sightseeing and felt safe and secure!

When packing for a trip to the stylish cities of Europe , it can be easy to focus solely on your capsule wardrobe. But there are definitely some other travel essentials for Europe that you should consider, including functional accessories and anti-theft items! 

Worried about Pickpockets in Europe ? Read These Tips and Tricks!


Venture 4th Travel Neck Pouch

Neck Wallet and Money Belt to Hide ID and Cash

One of the best ways to keep your valuables safe is by wearing them as close to your body as possible, preferably underneath your clothing by way of neck wallets or money belts. Even if you’re not traveling to mega-touristy zones or places where pickpocketing is common, it’s always better to be safe than sorry when traveling. 

A neck wallet is one of the best international travel accessories to give you peace of mind as you sightsee. As the name suggests, you simply wear it around your neck and underneath your clothing so that your cards, cash, and ID are out of sight and totally protected from theft.


Alpha Keeper Money Belt

Similarly, money belts are great overseas travel essentials to keep your money and valuables safely tucked away at your waist without creating bulk. They’re slim and comfortable to wear, yet offer the utmost security so you can confidently explore your destination! 

More anti-theft options include things like bra wallets and scarves with hidden pockets. But remember, never access them in public where other people can see you — just in case. 


Travelon Anti Theft Classic Messenger Bag

Anti-Theft Bag to Prevent Pickpocketing

Even if your most valuable items and money are stashed away in a money belt, an anti-theft purse is an amazing investment for your travels and is said to be one of the best Europe travel accessories you could have. 

These types of purses are made with slash-proof fabric and straps and offer security features like lockable zippers, lock-down straps for securing stationary objects like a restaurant chair, and RFID protection, so it’s no wonder they’re some of the top travel accessories among TFG readers. 

Readers love anti-theft purses that are simple in design and won’t call attention to themselves but are still sleek and stylish enough to look great with their travel outfits. But most importantly, the confidence and peace of mind they offer is what really makes them a travel staple!


Dagne Dover Micah Neoprene Crossbody Bag

Crossbody Bag

Crossbody bags are great travel essentials for international travel , as the design keeps them secure on your body and always in sight. They also make it easy to access your things, which is always a handy bonus. 

And while anti-theft crossbodies are ideal, if you have a favorite crossbody that’s functional, cute, and feels secure, then it’s a winner!


Bandolier Emma Crossbody Phone Case and Wallet

One particular style that’s become popular with readers is a crossbody phone purse . These cute travel accessories are perfect for traveling extra light with just your phone and cards or cash. They’re also great to wear while sightseeing, so you can always have your phone ready to snap the perfect pic or take a look at your maps. 

Leather travel accessories like the one shown above are always super chic, too!

Shop Bandolier Emma Crossbody Phone Case on Bandolier or Amazon .


MZ Wallace Metro Belt Bag

Sling Bags and Belt Bags

Another fab way to keep your belongings secure and easy to access is with a travel-friendly sling bag or belt bag! These fun travel accessories are all the rage right now, praised for their on-trend look, ease of wear, and safety. 

Similar to a crossbody, a sling bag will keep all of your belongings in sight. They’re just as handy for holding your passport and boarding pass at the airport as for stashing your Europe travel accessories on a long sightseeing day. 

Shop MZ Wallace Metro Belt Bag on Nordstrom or MZ Wallace .


Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag

Readers also love fanny packs for their versatility — they can be worn comfortably on your hips for a sporty-cute look or slung over your shoulder for a laid-back vibe. 

Depending on the style, these travel accessories women love can be taken anywhere from a rugged outdoor excursion to gallery-hopping to dinner and drinks! 


SCOTTeVEST Rhonda Trench Coat | Sizes S-XXL

Clothing With Hidden Pockets

While anti-theft bags and accessories are the most common safety essentials for overseas travel , they’re not the only solution! Believe it or not, there are many amazing anti-theft clothing options that’ll allow you to keep your most valuable items safe and sound without the need for any extra accessories! 

So whether you’re looking to minimize your travel gear or don’t want to carry a purse, clothing with hidden pockets is the way to go. From jackets and pants to even dresses and scarves, there are plenty of unique options to pick from! 

Whether you’re a fashionista or a no-frills traveler, these packing lists are made for you to customize to fit your travel needs and personal style!


Zoppen Passport Wallet Cover Case

RFID Passport Holder to Keep Information Safe

International travel means you’ll need to have your passport with you at multiple points during your trip, so you’ll want a secure and protective way to transport it. TFG readers love using an RFID passport holder that’ll keep all of their personal information protected. 

Aside from keeping your personal data safe, these travel bag accessories are great for keeping your passport, boarding passes, and other travel documents organized and ready. These international travel accessories are compact, secure, and easy to store; plus, if you get one in a fun color or print, you’ll be able to spot it in your bag easily.

Airplane Travel Essentials for Long Flights


A flight is the right time to use earplugs to block out noise. But my Bose Noise Canceling Headphones serve the same function, yet they were so bulky! So, I got the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Earbuds , and they’re more compact and travel-friendly!

Long-haul flights can be exhausting and uncomfortable, especially if you don’t have the right airplane travel accessories . You should always prioritize your comfort and well-being on a rigorous travel day, and these long flight travel essentials will make your journey much more comfortable and relaxing! 


Bucky 40 Blinks Sleep Mask

Sleeping Mask to Catch a Better Nap Onboard 

Whether dealing with bright lights in an airplane or a drastic time zone change, you’ll need a great sleeping mask to block out your surroundings and get some much-needed rest. These comfy travel essentials for long flights will make a huge difference, especially for sensitive sleepers.  

Choose a silky pair for luxurious skin nourishment or an option with contoured eyecups to block out every last bit of light! 

Avoid these common mistakes while traveling !


Loop Quiet Ear Plugs for Noise Reduction

Ear Plugs to Block Out Noise

From the roaring engine to chattering passengers to crying babies, airplane travel entails a good bit of noise. An easy way to block out noise and add so much more peace and quiet to your flight is by packing a pair of earplugs. 

Whether you want to enjoy a good book, get some work done, or have a snooze, earplugs will be a lifesaver on a noisy plane! These plane travel essentials will also come in handy throughout the rest of your trip, especially if you’re traveling to a noisy city, are a light sleeper, or are traveling with a snoring companion! 


VIM & VIGR Compression Socks

Compression Socks to Fight Swollen Legs

When sitting still for so many hours on a long-haul flight, it’s not uncommon for some swelling to occur. And aside from discomfort on the flight, they can potentially cause issues during your trip. That’s why compression socks are one of the best travel accessories for long flights ! 

Compression socks will keep your blood flowing and promote healthy circulation, reducing uncomfortable swelling. Some of the best air travel accessories , these can also help with restless legs, another common occurrence when sitting still for too long on a flight! 


trtl Super Soft Travel Neck Pillow

Travel Pillow to Support Your Neck

Anyone who’s taken a nap on a plane without a good neck pillow knows the pain is real! That’s why supportive neck pillows are absolute must haves for travel if you know you’ll want to catch some Z’s on your flight. Find something that’ll work in various sleeping positions and won’t take up too much space when packed. Bonus points if it’s easy to clean! 

Electronic Travel Accessories


As a content creator and entrepreneur, I have to work wherever I am. I recently bought the ARZOPA Portable Monitor to mitigate those long hours looking at a laptop screen. It’s quite compact!

Because electronics are such a huge part of our everyday life, they’re now a major part of traveling, too, and have even become some of our most useful travel accessories . That’s why it’s important to ensure your tech travel accessories are small, compact, and functional and will allow you to keep fully charged no matter where you are! 


Anker Portable Battery Pack

Portable Charger for Devices

When you’re getting ready to board a flight or are wandering around a foreign city, having your phone die is the last thing you want! And taking away precious sightseeing time as you sit and wait for your phone to charge isn’t fun, either.

This is why a portable charger should definitely be part of your travel bag essentials . You’ll never have to worry about draining your battery while using your phone’s maps or taking a million photos. Modern chargers are super lightweight and compact, too, so they’re easy to store in your day bag for all of your instant, on-the-go charging needs! 


Bose QuietComfort 45 Wireless Headphones

Noise-Canceling Headphones or Ear Buds

While they may seem like luxury travel accessories , noise-canceling headphones offer a multitude of benefits that have made them a major staple item for so many travelers! Perfect for blocking out the sound of a plane’s engine and any noisy passengers, you’ll be able to get some peace and quiet while enjoying your favorite playlist, TV shows or simply sitting in silence. 

Plus, noise-canceling styles are typically super comfy, whether over-the-ear or in-ear, so you could totally wear them for hours while on a flight.   

And aside from being among the best airplane travel accessories , you’ll love having them at your destination for the same reasons! Lounge with music by the pool or work at a cafe while living the digital nomad life, and you’ll be free from distractions while getting crystal-clear audio. 


Newvanga Travel Adapter

Travel Adapter for International Trips

Traveling internationally with electronics means dealing with different outlets, so you’ll definitely need a travel adapter. Instead of buying separate adaptors for specific countries you’ll be visiting, you might want to keep it simple (and cost-effective) with a universal travel adaptor . 

These essential travel accessories are equipped with outlets that work across multiple continents, so you can easily switch out the plugs depending on where you are in the world.

Here’s a quick guide on Travel Adaptors, Converters, and Voltage!


BAGSMART Electronic Organizer

Tech Organizer for Cords

We all know the struggle of pulling out knotted headphones and charging cords, which is hard to avoid when placing everything together in a single pocket or compartment of your bag. But you can easily avoid the tangly mess with a travel cord organizer ! 

These packing accessories for travel have a designated spot for everything, from teeny hard drives to bulky computer chargers, all while keeping things light and compact. Nothing beats keeping your electronics ultra-organized and in great condition!


ROOTOMA International Power Strip

Power Travel Strip for Electronics

Outlets are typically sparse in hotel rooms, and using multiple outlets at an airport is often next to impossible, so charging multiple devices can be tricky. That’s where travel power strips come in! 

They’re lightweight and much more compact than your typical power strip while offering multiple ports for all of your devices, making it one of the best business travel accessories . Plus, readers say they’re life-changing when traveling with a group! 

One TFG shares, “I always travel with one. It’s great. Doesn’t take up much room, and I always make friends!”


Soundcore Anker Mini 3 Bluetooth Speaker

Portable Bluetooth Speaker for Media

For music lovers, a portable speaker will be your favorite travel companion! These compact speakers are easy to pack and make such a difference in creating a fun atmosphere, whether hanging out in your Airbnb or laying out at the beach. 

These travel tech accessories can also double as white noise machines at night!

Womens Travel Accessories


When I toured Europe in 2018 for 2 weeks, all my undies had to fit in my Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack (now Fairview ), and they did! (Also pictured: Travelon Classic Anti-Theft Bag )

With all the focus on clothes and figuring out your different looks, items like socks , underwear , and PJs can be easy to forget! Don’t let these travel luggage accessories be overlooked! They’re vital in making sure you’re both comfy and set for your trip. 


ExOfficio Women’s Give-N-Go Bikini Brief | Sizes XS-XXL

Travel Underwear

They might be obvious must have travel essentials , but make sure undies are well-equipped for your travel adventures! Your travel underwear should ideally be super comfy, breathable, moisture-wicking, easy to wash, and quick-drying. It’s a plus if they’ll work with different clothing styles, too. 

And because they’ll likely be worn and washed more often than a typical pair, go for pairs that are high quality, with durable seams and fabric. And most importantly, the styles that make you feel comfortable and confident are key!


Bali Comfort Revolution Wireless Bra | Sizes S-3X

Travel Bras

In terms of bras, most readers recommend wireless bras that won’t feel too constricting for long-term wear. One reader says, “I went wireless a couple of years ago, and it’s been the greatest decision I’ve ever made.”

Whether spending the day exploring your destination by foot or embarking on some sporty excursions, comfort is of the utmost importance, and wireless bras check that box. (They’re air travel must haves , too!) And don’t worry — these women travel essentials are still ultra-supportive, practical, and flattering! 

If you want to rock an off-the-shoulder top or a strappy dress, there are tons of supportive and travel-friendly strapless bras that’ll keep you feeling secure without sacrificing comfort.


Sleepy Time Bamboo Pajamas | Sizes XS-XXL

Travel Pajamas

While they’re not exactly part of an essential capsule wardrobe, pajamas are still super important travel packing accessories ! When traveling, many readers like to make sure they have some PJs that are comfy and practical yet cute and put-together, especially if they’re traveling with others or might need to step out of their room for any reason.  

A great pair of travel pajamas will be cozy, of course, but also breathable, easy to pack, and either light and cooling or toasty warm, depending on the season and whether you typically run hot or cold.


Bombas No Show Socks

Travel Socks

Another item on the list of traveling accessories that seems like a no-brainer but is often overlooked or not given enough thought is socks! If you’re traveling in warm weather and plan on wearing your fave sneakers, keep it clean and simple with a pair of no-show socks . They’ll keep your feet fresh, dry, and comfortable all day while staying completely hidden. 

If you’re heading into cold weather, stock up on some warm winter socks . Readers love their merino wool socks for winter travels, as they’re warm yet aren’t bulky, plus they’re temperature regulating and moisture-wicking.

Shop Bombas No Show Socks on Nordstrom or Bombas .

Travel Beauty Essentials


Half of my hair styled with the T3 Lucea 1″ Styling Iron . I use it to turn my frizzy curls into soft waves when traveling!

Toiletries and cosmetics often stump a lot of travelers, especially in terms of choosing what to bring and how to downsize while still having the products and tools you love to have you looking and feeling your best! From hair styling tools to makeup, these beauty travel essentials are all travel-friendly and packable!


Dual Voltage Plavogue Styling Brush

Dual Voltage Hair Dryer Brush

If you can’t live without your hair dryer brush , bring it along! Just make sure it’s compact and dual voltage so it’ll work in different countries. These amazing women’s travel accessories dry and style your hair at the same time, keeping things nice and efficient!  

A reader shares, “It takes up some precious space in my carry-on, but I can do my hair so much faster with it. I hate wasting time getting ready when traveling, and drying my hair is a big chunk of that, so I always make room for it.”


BaBylisspro Nano Titanium Travel Hair Dryer

Dual Voltage Hair Dryer

Alternatively, travel-sized dual-voltage hair dryers are great womens travel essentials that can be used for both domestic and international travel. 

If you blow dry your hair regularly, you’ll be so glad to have one packed because, as one reader notes, “I’ve yet to find a hotel one that dries as fast.” And if your room doesn’t provide one or you’re not staying in a hotel, this little tool is a definite must! 

And if you want to style your hair during your travels with a flat iron or curling iron , definitely make sure these luxury travel essentials are dual voltage! A difference in outlet voltage can be super dangerous and potentially cause a fire, so be sure to keep that in mind when you pick out your hair tools.


HiBAR Shampoo and Conditioner Bar Set

Solid Toiletries to Reduce Liquids 3-2-1 Rule

A great way to minimize liquids and keep things simple when it comes to toiletries is to opt for solid toiletries . Instead of decanting a ton of products or worrying about TSA limits, packing toiletries in their solid form is a fantastic alternative, especially when you’re traveling carry-on only. 

You can get everything from shampoo and conditioner to sunscreen and even toothpaste in a solid form! No measuring the ounces or worrying about spills with these carry on travel essentials !


NYX Go-To Makeup Palette

Makeup Palette

Makeup palettes are some of the best accessories for travel to downsize the makeup that you pack. Small and packable, makeup palettes can offer everything from powder to highlighter to blush to eyeshadow, all in one. 

And with colors that complement each other perfectly, a makeup palette will help you create a seamless makeup look with ease!

Shop more makeup palette selections on NYX Cosmetics .


Mac Eye Shadow X 9 Palette

Eyeshadow Palette

If you like to glam it up, consider an eyeshadow palette to save space but still have plenty of color options. What’s great is that you can pick a palette with colors that are best suited to your eyes and skin tone, and that’ll look best with the clothing you’ve brought. Some of these small travel accessories are even customizable!

Shop more eyeshadow palette favorites on MAC Cosmetics .


MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick

Travel Lipstick

Because you’ll be out and about for longer periods when you travel, choosing long-lasting makeup products is important, and this certainly applies to lipstick. Having a gorgeous pop of color on your lips is super fun, especially when exploring festive towns or getting dolled up for a nice dinner, but you won’t want to interrupt all the fun by having to reapply it constantly. 

They’re fun and glamorous mini travel accessories , but just be sure to pick a great, long-lasting lipstick that’ll allow you to wear it for hours on end while trying new foods and staying hydrated, all with minimal touchups! 

Shop MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick on Nordstrom or Ulta .


Sephora Retractable Eyebrow Pencil

Eyebrow Pencil and Gel

For a lot of women, eyebrows are a key part of their makeup routine and at the top of their list of travel essentials , so finding a great, long-lasting product to bring with them on their travels is crucial. The eyebrow pencils with the strongest staying power will be waterproof, as they’ll stay put despite sweat or even a swim session! They’re especially great for hot and humid countries. 

If you need to tame those brows with some brow gel , again, choose something strong that’ll hold those hairs in place all day long! Most brow gels are conveniently compact, and because they can make such a huge difference in looking put-together, they can help simplify the products you bring with you for the day, making them great packing essentials for travel .


Travel Blush

When feeling tired or in need of a bit of color, blush alone can do wonders! Top travel essentials for so many female travelers, blush is an easy yet effective makeup item that’ll add a gorgeous glow in an instant. 

If you’re traveling in hot and humid countries, you might want to consider a powder blush to keep things a bit cooler and light on the skin. Powder blushes are quick and easy to apply and are long-lasting, too.

Shop NARS Blush on Sephora or Ulta .


Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Stick

Travel Size Sunscreen

No matter where you’re headed, staying sun-safe should be a top priority and a big part of your travel toiletries essentials . The best face sunscreen to pack is one that you’ll be happy wearing every single day, so make sure the one you pick is specifically formulated for the face, is delicate, and won’t leave a white cast. 

Some readers opt for solid sunscreen sticks , which won’t count towards those TSA liquid limits, so you can bring as much as you need. Another plus is that they’re super easy to apply and reapply throughout the day without any mess!


Nivea Dry Comfort Deodorant Antiperspirant Roll-On

Travel Deodorant

With all the sightseeing, walking, and adventuring you’ll be doing, sweating is bound to happen. You’ll want to keep fresh and odor-free with a deodorant that offers all-day protection. 

Several readers agree that antiperspirants, in particular, are travel bag necessities to ensure you’ll stay dry throughout the day and won’t run the risk of sweat marks, especially if you’ll be exploring in a hot climate.


Kiki & Josie Makeup Remover Gloves

Makeup Remover Cloth

Level up your makeup-removing technique with a more simple, ultra-lightweight, and eco-friendly makeup remover cloth ! 

Replacing the need for liquid makeup removers or heavy and wasteful makeup wipes, makeup remover cloths are extremely effective in removing makeup with just a bit of water (and maybe a touch of cleanser, depending on the strength of your makeup). These women’s travel necessities are made of soft microfiber, so they’re much more gentle on your skin than other alternatives!


Oral-B Pro 1000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

Electric Toothbrush

Bringing your toothbrush is a no-brainer, but if you’re dedicated to your electric toothbrush and can’t bear to go without one on your upcoming trip, then definitely consider bringing a travel-friendly electric toothbrush . They’re light, not too bulky, and they typically have excellent battery lives that’ll last your entire trip! 

What with the benefits, these are travel comfort accessories that are totally worth packing.

Shop more rechargeable electric toothbrush choices on the Oral-B website .

Unique Travel Accessories


I love to travel to hot, sunny destinations and recently bought the JISULIFE Pocket Handheld Mini Fan to help stave off the heat in such places!

Not exactly must-haves but beyond useful for particular reasons and occasions, a lot of these exciting travel accessories might just speak to you and your travel needs! From health considerations to handy business travel accessories , these travel tools serve a great purpose.


First Alert CO605 Alarm

Carbon Monoxide Detector to Stay Safe

We’ve all heard terrible stories of travelers suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning while on vacation, either due to a faulty detector or an overall lack of one. Instead of taking the risk or worrying throughout your trip, bring peace of mind with you in the form of a travel carbon monoxide detector . 

Small and able to be placed anywhere in your accommodation, these potentially life-saving detectors will alert you to any CO presence so you and your loved ones will always be safe. That easily makes it one of the best travel must haves out there! 


SmartDevil Small Humidifier

Travel Humidifier to Freshen the Air

From traveling to an arid climate to running the AC all day to suffering from allergies or sinus issues, a portable humidifier is one of the coolest travel accessories ! And it’ll be your favorite travel buddy to replenish much-needed moisture in your room and keep things nice and comfy. 

They’re fantastic for helping you sleep, soothing your nose and throat, and moisturizing your skin! One reader says she brings, “A small one that I can set up on the nightstand. I run it constantly on the first day to get moisture into the room since most hotel rooms are notoriously dry. And then I just run it in the evenings and overnight.”


LOUTYTUO 555ML Small Electric Kettle Travel

Travel Kettle for Road Trips

A travel kettle is actually quite a popular travel staple with readers. Portable and easy to pack, these great travel accessories will make all the difference when you get to enjoy a fresh cup of your favorite tea without leaving your room!

One reader says she always brings, “My hot pot for tea. I’ll wash one pair of underwear every single night before I go without my tea!” Another says, “Love it for tea, coffee, little packets of instant soup, and oatmeal.”


JISULIFE 3in1 Pocket Handheld Mini Fan

Travel Fan for Hot Destinations

In destinations like Europe, it’s not uncommon for restaurants, shops, and hotels to not have strong AC (or any at all), so you’ll be glad to get a quick refreshing blast of air whenever you need it with a travel fan ! These cute travel essentials are teeny and easy to stick into the pocket of your purse, and they’ll make all the difference when strolling around on a muggy day or sitting in a hot airplane before takeoff.


900W PurSteam Garment Steamer

Travel Steamer for Dewrinkling Outfits

If you’re traveling for business or attending a special event, a travel steamer will keep your clothes wrinkle-free and polished. They’re nice, compact, lightweight, and can be filled with sink water for quick and easy steaming. 

Sometimes even the best folding techniques just don’t cut it, but a portable steamer will have you looking presentable at all times! Readers say they belong on every business travel must haves list! 


Downy Wrinkle Releaser

Wrinkle Release Spray to Smooth Out Clothing

A smaller alternative to a travel steamer is a handy little bottle of wrinkle release spray . Perfect for getting light creases and wrinkles out of your everyday clothes, they’re also great plane travel accessories that’ll have you looking polished right after you land. They take up just a teeny bit of space and can even be carried with you when you’re out and about. 

All it takes is a few sprays, and your wrinkly clothes will look good as new. And some options will even freshen up your clothes with some subtle yet deliciously clean scents!

Beach or Cruise Travel Essentials


As an avid scuba diver, I have a lot of accessories to pack; and often use a dive bag to haul my equipment!

Cruises and beach vacations are some of the most in-demand articles on the TFG site! These beach and cruise travel accessories will add so much fun and comfort to your trip — and while some of them can be rented at your destination, many travelers opt to bring their own for economic or hygienic reasons. 


Sea-Band Wristband Natural Nausea Relief

Seasick Bands to Help Nausea

If a cruise ship or boat is in your travel future and you’re worried about seasickness ruining all the fun, sea bands are here to the rescue! Working by placing pressure on an acupressure point on your wrist, they’ll relieve nausea and reduce your symptoms of motion sickness. 

It’s always best to be prepared, and these are some of the best travel accessories for cruise ships. With these in your toiletry kit, you or your travel companions will have some much-needed relief if you’re ever hit with rough seas. 

(These are some of the best car travel accessories , too, as they also work for car sickness!)

Shop Sea-Band Wristband on Walmart or Amazon .


Cressi F1 Scuba Snorkeling Mask

Snorkeling Mask to Protect Eyes

Whether snorkeling, scuba diving, or just splashing around in the waves, having your own snorkeling mask is worth it. You’ll be able to get the perfect fit for your face, plus it’ll keep things sanitary, and you’ll save money long-term, not to mention the amazing views you’ll get to witness underwater! Investing in a mask means choosing whatever fun color you want, too! 

A reader shares, “We take our snorkels and masks when we travel backpacks-only often. We pack small soft items (like socks) in our masks and wrap sarongs or travel towels around them.”


Cressi Adult Short Light Swim Fins

Snorkel Fins for Water Fun

For your underwater adventures, a well-fitting pair of fins makes a fun (and functional) addition to your packing list! You’ll want to choose the style depending on the activity, whether snorkeling, scuba diving , free diving, or swimming, as they’re all built slightly differently, with different lengths and designs. 

And many readers confirm that these sporty women travel accessories can be strategically packed in a carry-on suitcase!


Body Glove Long Sleeve Rashguard | Sizes XS-XL

Rash Guard for Swimming or Snorkeling

If you’re spending hours in the water, you may want to pack a rash guard or two so that your skin doesn’t get irritated, scraped, rubbed raw, or sunburned. While originally made for surfing and other water sports, you don’t have to be partaking in any particularly intense activities to reap the benefits of a rash guard – they’re travel must haves for women who simply love being in the water!  

They’ll keep you comfy and protected from the elements and the sun, and they won’t make you feel hot. And many brands offer some very cute and feminine designs!


Cressi Short Front Zip Wetsuit | Sizes XS-2XL

Wetsuit for Water Sports

If you plan on active water sports, step it up a notch with a wetsuit . While they can be a bit bulky, readers have recommended bringing your own wetsuit for the benefits of having the perfect fit and style that you want, saving money on rentals, and knowing that you’re the wetsuit’s sole wearer!


Wallaroo Victoria Sun Hat

Sun Hat for Heat Protection

Sun and heat protection is always a top priority, and it’s best to make sure you’re getting it in more ways than just sunscreen! Luckily, stylish travel accessories can do double duty. A cute sun hat is the perfect way to protect your skin from the sun’s rays but also add a chic element to your outfits! 

Bonus points if your hat has UPF protection, is adjustable, is easy to pack in your luggage and stash in your day bag without losing shape, and keeps your head feeling nice and cool.


Face Shadow Double Eyeglasses Pouch

Sunglass and Eyeglass Case

Beach days and stylish sunnies go hand in hand! But that means you’ll need to add a glasses case to your travel accessories list , so you can store them when you jump in the water or when the sun goes down! 

Ensure your glasses case is lightweight, padded for protection, and lined with a soft fabric to prevent scratches. And if you’re an eyeglass-wearer, you may want to opt for a two-in-one case that has slots for both your eyeglasses and sunglasses. 


Ray-Ban Polarized Aviator Sunglasses

And while we’re on the topic of sunglasses, polarized sunglasses are a strongly recommended travel accessory for keeping your eyes safe on a sunny day, especially if there’s extra glare from the water! Your eyes will thank you for the added protection!


Rio Gear Ultimate Backpack Chair

Portable Beach Chair for Local Vacations

Portable beach chairs will add so much comfort and relaxation to your beach days! While you won’t want to lug them around on a flight, they’re excellent to bring along on a road trip along the coast or any other local getaways. 

Sitting on the sand all day can get a bit uncomfortable, so these travel-friendly beach chairs will give you some much-needed support, and some versions even offer handy features like cup holders and tents! They’re really good travel accessories for the frequent beach-goer.

What Vacation Travel Essentials Are Not Necessary?


For my European summer trip in 2022, I had to keep all my packing, including accessories, in fairly small spaces. I used the Osprey Transporter 38L Wheeled Suitcase , and for my personal item, I used the Osprey Transporter 44L Backpack as a diaper bag for the flight.

While there are tons of awesome travel essentials that are definitely working packing, there are also some trendy travel accessories that some may recommend but that aren’t really necessary or that can easily be replaced with something else. 

For example, if you’re heading to a rainy destination and are considering a travel umbrella, you can save space and money by bringing a high-quality raincoat with a great hood. 

Some travelers might also feel the need to bring a travel safe for their valuables, though it’s best to leave most of your valuables at home. (Some travelers even leave their wedding bands at home and opt for a travel version !) Instead, opt for a suitcase with lockable zippers — which is such a worthwhile investment in general — and anything of value can be locked away in there while you’re out exploring. 


Readers recommend leaving vital jewelry at home, and Enso Classic Legend Ring is a great wedding ring substitute!

When it comes to electronics, it often feels like we need to bring so many travel gadgets and accessories (and all of their corresponding chargers), but try to keep to the bare minimum. If you want something to watch movies, read books, send emails, write things down, etc., try to bring just one device that can accomplish all of these things, like a laptop or an iPad. 

And while there’s nothing like a physical book or writing by hand in a journal, you might want to consider keeping it all digital (just for the trip) to save space and weight in your luggage. 

Overall, try to keep things as light as possible, and don’t pack things because of a “what if”!

Jude Cooper

I recently discovered ‘Soak’ laundry liquid ( You only need a teaspoon in a basin of water and no rinsing required! I use it for my delicates at home and recently used it on holiday too. Awesome!


Thanks for sharing your find with us Jude!

JanDee Abraaham

Love all your valuable travel tips ! This is my “go to ” list anytime I am getting ready for a trip!!!

Lorrie Hero

Your list is terrific! I’ve been using Apple AirTags since they came out and they are a game-changer! I highly recommend. I travel on an airline that does a good job of tracking checked bags but this gives me additional comfort for those very few times I have had to check. They are also great for keeping track of keys and anything else you find that you are constantly searching for. I even have one on my dog! The mini fan was a fantastic find. It’s small enough to travel with, even on a daily basis, and has been great when the temps get warm. I sleep hot and having this fan sitting up up next to me has been great when needed!

Sara Mitchell

I’ve loved this list and have so many of these items! He Bagsmart toiletries bag has become one of my favorite gifts for girlfriends!

Carole N

Thank you for this list! I just returned from 2 weeks in Iceland and while I learned a lot from reading many of your recommendations, this list will be helpful for future travel!

Cathleen R

So many great suggestions in this article. I have purchased many of them and love them. I also purchase the Shout wipes and carry them in my crossbody for any type of spills. Thank you for all your useful articles.


I agree the portable power pack is a lifesaver when you’ve taken SO MANY PHOTOS on your phone! I also used it on a long flight when my charger kept falling out of the airplane’s receptacle.

Bonnie Donatucci

As always you provide helpful on point recommendations.


We were the family traveling with eleven bags. …clothing, car seats, strollers, miscellaneous gear for every possible circumstance. This site has transformed my life. We went on a trip last week and I am proud to say we are down to two roll-aboards and two backpacks! The most helpful advice was being taught about capsule wardrobes and downsizing toiletries/makeup kits, and washing laundry as we go. I could not understand the hype about packing cubes but now I’m a huge fan like everyone else. Alex reminded me there are really only a handful of outfits in my closet that I truly love wearing because they are soft, stylish, flattering–I should pack those! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have changed my life for the better.

Shawn Archer

Amazing list! I recently purchased a Bandolier for a trip to Europe. It’s comfortable, cute, and keeps my phone accessible. Should be perfect for what I need. Thank you!

Sandra Cooper

This has been so helpful. I did my first COO 28-day trip. It was so nice to not have a heavy suitcase to carry around Europe!

Meg Wagner

Looking forward to a 30 day vacation in Europe starting next week. I have purchased many of the item suggested on this site. I could never have imagined doing COO but I’m doing it for this trip!

This site is so incredibly helpful! Starting next week I am doing COO and visiting 5 countries in Europe for 30 days. We will begin in Hungary and end in Greece. I could never have done this without all of the suggestions from this group, packing clothes for cooler weather and warmer weather. Thank you TFG!!

Anna Raya

I have so many of these recommended products and I have not been disappointed in any of them! The Compass Rose packing cubes turned out to be way more handy than I was expecting, and I have SEVERAL packing cube sets, ha! Thanks for including other products that I don’t own yet but that I’m looking at now!


So many great recommendations! Thank you for sharing.

Corinne Bechtel

So many great tips, thank you! The mini fan is one of my must pack items! I just ordered the loop earplugs and the kitsch containers on your recommendation. Excited to take them on my next trip!


As someone who LOVES gadgets and accessories I really appreciate all the details and pros & cons you offer. Thanks for putting in the time to get SO MUCH info out to everyone!!


I definitely give a hearty recommendation to the bombas no show socks. They are the best out there. I also definitely added a couple more items to my travel supplies list! Thanks!


Brilliant! I loved my AirTags and trtl pillow on my European trip this past winter. I’m strongly tempted to splurge on the bandolier phone case for my next trip!

Angela romero

I am ordering them all!!

Jonni Wood

I’ve used so many of these recommended travel items, and I’ve referred back to this post for even more ideas! I can’t think of a more comprehensive list! I love that travel teapot!

Amy Driver

We’ve started using detergent sheets at home to wash clothes. I know they will travel well too!


What a comprehensive list. I may have to check out that ScottEvest trench.


This is a great article. Im researching for my next trip to Europe and its the first time focusing on being a minimalist. Im sad I haven’t found anywhere the Rose Compass packing cubes. When they will be available?

Christina Fredricks

This is such a great list! I already pack several items you recommend but was glad to discover the jewelry organizer. I’ve been searching….


I have used so many products for local, domestic and international travel from this site. I tell everyone to check your page for anything they might think is needed for traveling.

Amy Martin

So helpful! The tea kettle and compass rose packing have been game-changing for me!

Erin Dixon

I learned so much on your site and FB group for my trip to Ireland earlier this year. I had never thought of decanting my toiletries into lip balm containers. I was able to really pare down my toiletries and save space!

Gayle Hirsch

Some great tip/products mentioned here. Have bought quite a few of these from learning of them on here.

Debbie Olson

Great list! Some things I would have never thought of that’s for sure! Thank you!

Deb McC

I don’t travel international, but all your travel tips have helped me do COO for my cross-country trips. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Compass Rose Packing Cubes. They fit all my clothing and keep my suitcase totally organized. I use a spray bottle (top only) and fit it onto a disposable water bottle to spritz and dewrinkle my clothes at final destination. I appreciate all my fellow travelers’ insights!


I just added the Dual Voltage Hair Dryer Brush to my travel wish list! Does it take up too much room for COO? After doing 3 weeks in Spain COO, I’m determined to never check a bag again!

Cathy Russo

This list has been so helpful as I plan my first international trip. It’s so great to be able to find so much information that has been tried & used by other like minded travelers!!


Fantastic list! I have bought several of the items recommended a few years ago and they have been so helpful for our travels. My favorites are the Compass Rose Packing Cubes and Compas Rose Adapter. A new favorite is my mini travel fan that takes up minimal space on a hotel nightstand. Many thanks!

Sara Garrington

I’d also recommend a Tide stick and not just the detergent to get stains quickly and help clothes last longer between washing

Emily Tan

This is an incredible list, thank you! I’ve just discovered a love for snorkeling and would love your recommendations on bikinis and rash guard brands you favour. I’d also like your take on clothes that make beach changes easy (and not a peep show).

Leggings are a perfect choice for traveling wear. And these have Oprah's seal of approval, as they were picked for Oprah's 2022 Favorite Things list. Eco-friendly and size-inclusive (the range goes through 6XL), these compression leggings are available in a plethora of hues. Plus, they feature double-side seaming and pockets.

When it comes to travel, layering is key. A long oversize cardigan will be your saving grace as the cabin temperature drops or if hotel lobby's AC is a little overzealous.

Sometimes a full on coat is not needed for travel, but you can never be quite sure of the weather. That's why a a little packable shacket—part shirt, part jacket—comes in. In black, olive green, or dark blue, the jacket will be your go-to for travel. Keep in mind, it runs slightly big in order to allow for comfortable layering of hoodies or sweaters underneath.

Let's be honest, you can't always count on the airline's blankets to keep you warm, and some even leave annoying fluff behind. Stay warm and stylish with your own wearable blanket by way of this poncho.

A bold color can completely lift not only your mood but your outfit, too. This wool-and-cashmer- blend coat is perfect for throwing on when you are in dire need of energy. You'll be thankful for the cozy wrap design as you head out to a blustery runway.

This dress has everything you could wish for from a travel dress, and then some. Made of WonderTex, a fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, the dress is wrinkle-resistant, machine-washable, and has high stretch capabilities—and pockets!

Sometimes comfort really does become a priority, especially on long-haul flights. But you don't have to sacrifice style for comfort and that's why this jumpsuit is an easy way to help make your journey a little bit more pleasant. Wear with some sneakers and a shawl and you'll be ready to catch some sleep on your next transatlantic flight.

These black joggers are an excellent choice for travel because of their versatility and breathable fabric. Plus, the elastic waist adds style and maximizes comfort. You can even add this tee to make it a monochrome set.

A comfy and cozy sweatsuit is many people's outfit of choice for travelwear, especially if you're going long-haul and you have numerous stopovers and changes. Made with recycled materials and using less water in production, this relaxed-fitting set has over 400 reviews.

32 Best Women's Loungewear Sets for Long Travel Days

All products featured on Condé Nast Traveler are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

Some may argue that traveling by plane is an occasion to dress up, but for most of us at Traveler, comfort is the main priority when planning a transit day ensemble: You want something loose enough that you won't need to readjust (or worse, unbutton) a few hours into a flight or road trip, but put-together enough to feel that you've made a switch out of pajamas and into a true outfit. Luckily, there is no shortage of loungewear sets these days.

Read on for 32 of the best loungewear sets to add to your travel wardrobe , many of which are sitting in our editors' dresser drawers. From upscale sweatsuits to cozy cashmere knits, they'll keep you comfy whether you're sitting on a plane, train, or in the passenger seat, and will get a re-wear on lazy vacation days when the only item on your to-do list is lounging around the Airbnb .

This article has been updated with new information since its original publish date. Additional reporting by Meaghan Kenny.

Buck Mason is at the forefront of elevated essentials. The Vintage Interloop set features an oversized crew that has a relaxed fit all around and thinly ribbed stiching on the cuffs to give more structure to the slouchy sleeves. The French terry sweatpants are slimming and so comfortable. Each set looks slightly different than the other, thanks to Buck Mason's Venice Wash technique that creates its cool, vintage look.

Kim Kardashian's shapewear and loungewear brand Skims never misses when it comes to cozy sets. The Cotton Fleece collection is a more sporty take on classic loungewear. The soft fleece shorts have an interior drawstring at the waist for a more customizable fit.

If you prefer something a little more roomy, the Oversized Tee and Harem Pant set from This is J is for you. It’s perfect for long-haul flights and road trips where comfort is at the top of your list, but you don’t want to step out in your pajamas. The soft, moisture-wicking fabric will keep you dry and comfortable whether you’re snuggled up on a train or plane.

travel outfit accessories

This set is made for cold weather. The thick fabric will keep you warm and toasty whether you’re hanging inside with friends or out sightseeing. The top has a dropped shoulder sleeve that looks more oversized while the pants feature a wide-leg with a drawstring waist.. The set comes in 10 solid colors that are easy to pair with a slip-on sneaker or Ugg boots .

The soft ribbed knit of the Muse hoodie and sweatpant offers a lot of dimension to the duo. The set is lightweight enough that it can be worn over workout clothes without any bulkiness. The high-waisted joggers pair well with the cropped hoodie and offer a more chic silhouette.

travel outfit accessories

You’ll be comfortable from head to toe with this ultra-soft pullover and pant set. The pants have a classic ‘70s wide-leg silhouette accompanied by an elastic waistband, while the pullover has a polo-inspired collar and a slightly cropped hem. An all-white set never goes out of style and will look great with a white sneaker .

Made from a blend of merino wool and cashmere, the luxuriously soft fabric of the Cashmino Tunic hoodie and joggers is hard to beat. We love this set for its sophisticated yet cozy look.

The name tells you everything you need to know. The Coziest Cashmere Blend hoodie and jogger are ultra-soft. The fabric is warm yet breathable and the fact that it’s a blend gives you peace of mind that it won’t be ruined in the washing machine.

travel outfit accessories

Traveler editors swear by Lunya's washable silk pajamas and cashmere Travel Set . The brand’s Silksweats complete its holy trinity of comfort. With a sherpa interior and thermoregulating abilities, you'll be comfortable without overheating in this set. Bonus: Both pieces are reversible so you can have two looks for one.

travel outfit accessories

We're always raving about Girlfriend Collective, a size-inclusive, sustainably- and ethically-made brand. While much of the ReSet collection is sold out, this cropped sweater and pant set are a great replacement, made from half recycled, half organic cotton. They're available in your classic neutral colors, as well as this rich wine hue.

Late last summer, True & Co. dropped its first loungewear line, expanding upon its uber-comfortable bras and undergarments. Rather than stick with the same basic cuts, they launched with a cropped wide leg pant and oversized long sleeve, both in a soft, jersey sheet-like fabric. Order the separates in blush, charcoal heather, mushroom (shown above), or crushed berry.

travel outfit accessories

There's something to be said for a zip-up sweatshirt, even if they've largely been replaced by pullovers of late. For one, if your temperature flips from chilly to warm, you can regulate without bothering your seatmate while trying to take off your hoodie. We're a fan of the sweatpants, too: the deep pockets, cuffed ankles, and cashmere fabric are all plusses.

travel outfit accessories

A new addition to OV's ultra-soft, lightweight, and durable CloudKnit line-up : this boxy T-shirt with a slightly cropped fit. It comes in charcoal, navy, mocha, fog white, and jasmine blue, all of which will match your go-to black leggings or joggers .

travel outfit accessories

Awarded one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2020, I was eager to put on Cozy Earth's ultra-soft joggers, and am happy to report they lived up to the hype. Made of a mix of premium viscose from bamboo, acrylic, and spandex, they're smooth and cool to the touch, and have a loose but not baggy fit. I've worn them a ton on WFH days, and would happily fly in them. Snag a matching pullover if you like the matching set look.

travel outfit accessories

San Francisco–based Quince launched a maternity collection, which includes a nursing-friendly long sleeve and lounge joggers with an adjustable drawstring waistband. All of the collection's pieces are made with renewable materials like Tencel lyocell, a biodegradable fiber made from wood pulp; mulberry silk, a hypoallergenic and thermoregulating fabric; the company's SuperSoft fabric, a blend of recycled polyester and tencel; and sustainably- and humanely-sourced Mongolian cashmere.

Outdoor Voices’ All Day hoodie and sweatpants set really is made to wear from dusk to dawn. It aims to be the softest pair of sweats you will ever wear, and stacks up, with a CloudKnit fabric that feels as cozy as your most worn-in pair of pajamas. The sweatpants are high-rise and more fitted toward the bottom to give the most flattering look possible, too. The pieces can be bought individually and come in six different colors, from neutral charcoal to a rich Kalamata purple.

While former Traveler editor Jessica Puckett's favorite cashmere set has since sold out, Cuyana's Pima outfit is another great option for plane travel and lounging, particularly in warmer environments, as the material is soft, smooth, and breathable.

Former Traveler editor Corina Quinn turned us on to Vuori's DreamKnit Collection hoodie and jogger set. “The DreamKnit feels like a cloud—it's so soft and cozy, yet lightweight, so you don't get too hot or too cool in them,” she says. “On top of that, because there are a few different models of jogger pants and tops, my friends and I have all found a model that's flattering for us.” For a pair of sweats that make you feel like you’re wearing a real outfit without actually doing so, Vuori’s unbelievably soft, stretchy sets are an easy pick.

Friend + Folk is a size- and gender-inclusive brand that prioritizes a limited carbon footprint, and puts it into practice by way of free carbon neutral shipping, recyclable and plastic-free packaging, limited batch-production, and more. The Joon joggers are a favorite—the fit is roomy and comfortable yet still tailored, and the zippered pockets are ideal for stashing AirPods, lip balm, and other odds and ends without worrying they'll fall out as you dash through the airport. Pair them with the Perry pullover and you've got a new airport uniform.

Lululemon may be best known for its leggings and workout wear, but don't skip over the brand's loungewear. This set is made out of a smooth Softstreme material that is stretchy and feels smooth against your skin. It's a great loungewear set to wear if you run hot.

travel outfit accessories

We love this Madewell number, made of a fleece-like Superbrushed terry fabric. Wide legs and a loose fit make it just the kind of thing we want to wear on long travel days, and the patch pockets are much appreciated. Since it does have tank top-style straps, bring a cardigan or other added layer for the plane.

travel outfit accessories

Allbirds has been expanding its offerings from shoes and accessories into athletic and loungewear, using the same environmentally conscious (and carbon neutral) production process. This crewneck and sweats set is best for loungewear purists who want something simple, and comes in white or black, as well as limited-edition colors like hazy pine, terracotta, and true navy.

travel outfit accessories

Some loungewear is better suited for inside wear, like this cozy ribbed shorts set. Wear the pullover, with its bell sleeves and slit in the back, over leggings for long-haul flights. The stretchy shorts have a fairly short inseam, so they'll likely be more comfortable as a sleeping short or loungewear piece to change into when you arrive at your hotel or rental house.

Image may contain: Clothing, Suit, Overcoat, Apparel, Coat, Human, and Person

This two-piece set might be the closest thing to sleepwear on this list, and yet is still cute enough to feel confident while wearing through the airport. It comes in a dozen colors, from basic heather gray to bold indigo blue, and pairs slouchy, relaxed fit pants with a scoop-neck button-up henley.

If this brand sounds familiar, you may have worn one of its face masks—initially a scrubs outfitter, Jaanuu has since ventured into loungewear. The result is a super stretchy, super soft hoodie and jogger set you'll want to wear on every flight (and maybe to a workout class, too).

Image may contain: Clothing, Sleeve, Apparel, Long Sleeve, Human, Person, Standing, and Pants

Sure, all sweatpants are designed to be comfortable, but the cotton, modal, and spandex fabric Knix uses takes things up a notch. The smooth, cooling, and slightly stretchy fabric feels fantastic against skin and looks a bit more put-together than typical sweatpant material.

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, Dress, Human, Person, and Pants

Most loungewear tends to follow the same cut, so we appreciate Monos, a luggage brand , shaking things up when delving into clothing. This set is as soft as any sweatpants out there, with a mid-length wide-leg pant and a short sleeve V-neck tee that's just slightly cropped.

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, and Pants

Anything labeled Signaturesoft nails both the rest day and flying-comfortably mood we're going for. The top and bottom have a streamlined shape and the sweatpants are tapered at the ankle. Both pieces are made of a comfortable rayon, acrylic, and spandex mix, so you’ll feel cozy while still looking put together. The sweatshirt and sweatpants can be purchased individually and come in nearly a dozen colors should you want to mix and match, and the sweatshirt passes the video-conferencing-chic test, in that it looks more like a standard sweater than workout wear.

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, Pajamas, Human, and Person

Not a hoodie person? You might like this cowl-neck top, which comes with cropped pants, both made of a super soft jersey and spandex fabric. Shop the set in gray, sky blue, strawberry, or buttercream, and wear it on your next overnight flight to feel like you're in pajamas.

Image may contain: Clothing, Shorts, Apparel, Human, and Person

If you didn't get on board with sweat shorts during the stay-at-home early pandemic days, it's not too late: Ideal for warmer climates or people who run hot, Reona's riff of its best-selling  cotton joggers pairs well with the loose-fit crop T-shirt , a travel wardrobe staple made of bamboo fabric.

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, Footwear, Shoe, Human, Person, Suit, Coat, Overcoat, Sleeve, and Long Sleeve

You may never want to put on pajamas again after wearing Softwear's Lounge Set. The fabric is buttery soft inside and out. Both the pullover and joggers are tailored and fitted with a clean silhouette—the top could pass for a normal sweater—while still being ultra soft. Plus, it’s long-lasting: The sustainable fabric is pilling-resistant and made to keep its shape after every wear.

travel outfit accessories

Made for pregnant or nursing moms, this Everly Grey set is designed to fit a baby bump and make nursing easier with side openings on the top. Made of stretchy fabric with cuffed ankles and wrists and pockets on the hips, it's a loose, ever-so-slightly tailored look you'll wear again and again. Order it in one of four neutral colors: black, charcoal, oyster pink, or denim blue.

1. Designer-Inspired Travel Outfit Set

Monochrome travel outfit

Set in White: Shop on Amazon

I have to start with one of my favorite Amazon finds this year, and it’s this Spanx-inspired set for under $60! If are familiar with the Spanx AirEssentials line (it’s truly a dream) but it’s quite expensive. This comfy Set has a similar vibe for a fraction of the price.

This 2 piece set comes with a half zip sweater, and wide leg bottoms with a tie waist that feels so soft on the skin.

It’s a comfortable & chic travel outfit because it’s easy to throw on (especially for those 6 AM flights) and it just looks a little bit more put together.

Set in Light Khaki: Shop on Amazon

I recently wore this set on my flight to Miami and I can confirm it’s comfortable for being in for many hours. I even own this set in three colors, but the Light Khaki is my ultimate favorite. The color is a stunning light beige that’s so on-trend.

Fit:   I sized up for a looser fit in the bottoms. Wearing an XL

2. Comfortable All Black Set

Cute Travel Outfit

Set in Black: Shop on Amazon

When traveling opt for lightweight fabrics. If you are looking for the perfect base for any road trip or airport travel outfit, let this simple Amazon Set be it! It has a thinner oversized short sleeve top and loose-fit joggers.

This set is 1) comfortable to wear and 2) goes with everything to create different looks. So if you wanted to add in a coat, a vest, denim jacket, leather jacket, hat, etc- it will match effortlessly.

I like how this set has a looser feel so you won’t feel restricted when traveling, and it does come in multiple colors. However, I suggest getting a darker shade to blend with your other travel accessories or hide any spills, etc! (Is it just me spilling coffee whenever I travel?)

Fit: Runs true to size, size up for looser fit. 

3. Black and White Travel Outfit Set

Amazon Travel Outfit

(Before we begin, let’s not judge the last photo- it was taken at 5:15 AM) This fun color block set is perfect for travel because it gives off old-money vibes and is super chic.

This set is under $50 and looks more expensive than it is. The pants on me are a bit cropped because I am 5’10, however will fit full length if you are shorter than 5’10. I like the cutout detail on the pants and top that gives a flowy look.

If you’re looking for more colors, this Amazon set has a few options including coffee brown, ivory, and navy.

Fit : Runs true to size. Wearing a size Large

4. Lululemon Inspired Half-Zip Casual Travel Outfit

Travel outfits for women

Shop on Amazon

Half Zip Sweater on Amazon

Sweater in Light Grey: Shop on Amazon

If you’re a Lululemon girl on a budget, you need to add this half-zip sweatshirt to your cart ASAP! It’s very similar to the Lululemon Scuba sweatshirt but it’s more than half the price, and it makes the perfect travel outfit.

I love this for travel for so many reasons. First, there are thumb holes that are perfect for keeping your arms warm, it’s a trendy cropped style and fleece fleece-lined.

So if you’re looking for a winter travel outfit idea- this Amazon half-zip sweatshirt and leggings will keep you warm on your travels. Plus you can always add in a jacket for extra warmth. Trust me, it’s a must for your travel wardrobe.

Fit : Runs true to size wearing size Large

5. Puffer Vest

travel outfits

Shop Vest on Amazon

Another great way to add warmth to any winter travel outfit is by adding a puffer vest . I love this style from Amazon because it’s comfortable to wear and it fits better than other styles I’ve tried.

Plus you can always take this vest on and off depending on how warm you get. Another great thing about a puffer vest is that you can wear it once you get to your destination. I love the versatility.

This style comes in many different colors, but when in doubt: black is always a good idea that matches everything.

Fit: Puffer vest runs true to size. 

6. Sleeveless Knit Travel Outfit Set

cute travel outfits

This Amazon set went viral on TikTok for a good reason it’s stylish, comfortable, and looks so similar to the Free People version for a fraction of the price.

I adore the color combination of the Khaki White set, but I know white pants and travel don’t mix well. This set does come in different colors with darker bottoms that may work for travel more.

While this is a sleeveless style, the knit material has medium fabric weight so it’s a bit warmer. This is great for year-round travel to many destinations.

Fit: runs true to size wearing size Large

7. Long Sleeve Knit Travel Outfit Set

travel outfits

Now if you love the previous set but get cold easily, especially on those airplanes this viral Amazon set comes in a long sleeve two-piece sweat set version . As soon as it came out you knew I had to have it.

For the long sleeve version, I opted for the Khaki color which comes in a monochromatic top and bottom.

I also have to note that the pants on this set are very comfortable to wear and stretchy with pockets! I know some sets on Amazon can come with uncomfortable bottom options (especially if you have wide hips like me).

I also like how the sweater material is not scratchy. It’s a 10/10 for me.

8. Blazer and Trouser Pants Travel Outfit

cute travel outfits

Shop Outfit

This look is for my business girlies out there, or if you just want to be dressed up. A blazer and trousers are always a good idea.

I am obsessed with this blazer from Amazon . I am proud to say that I own it in 5 colors and patterns and wear it all the time, and it’s comfortable enough to wear on long flights to Europe.

And if you thought you could only wear leggings on a plane, think again.

These trousers on Amazon feel like sweatpants and are very comfortable to wear. Now these don’t have the best reviews as users say it’s not quite figure flattering. However, as someone with wide hips, I appreciate the extra room these trousers give.

Pair the look with a pair of loafers or a pair of flats and you’ll be ready for any meeting or event.

9. Coatigan Travel Outfit

travel outfits for women

When a cardigan and a coat get mashed up together, you get a coatagin. This long coatagin style on Amazon is a best-seller for a good reason. It looks so chic and dresses up any travel outfit (plus it feels like a cozy sweater).

Add your favorite cotton T-shirt and leggings with this coatagin and you will be ready to go.

Note : I’m wearing this in the Light Camel color and in person the color looks pinker than it does online.

Fit: Runs true to size, wearing size Large

10. Oversized Crewneck and Leggings

Travel outfit Ideas

The key to any travel outfit is comfortable clothing. Look no further than this casual oversized crew neck sweater . This sweater is lined with fleece so it will keep you very warm, especially for any winter travel.

And if you love neutral colors, you’ll have fun selecting what color to get. This style comes in a variety of muted trendy colors, and the Coffee Grey color is stunning- a true dusty mauve (obsessed).

You can add this oversized sweater with a pair of leggings, or even straight-leg jeans if they are comfortable enough for the ideal airplane outfit.

Fit: runs oversized size down wearing a medium.

11. Trench Coat Travel Outfit

trench coat travel outfit

Doesn’t a trench just dress up any outfit? Adding in a trench coat instantly dresses up your travel outfit whether that’s a flight or a road trip vacation.

This Amazon trench coat is my favorite because it’s extremely lightweight so you won’t get too overheated when wearing it. It’s also not too bulky-looking. I love it so much that I just got it in black.

Another benefit is that you can wear it to your destination, even in the rain!

Fit: R uns slightly oversized. Wearing it in a medium, but a large would give it a more relaxed look. Size down to be more fitted or get your true size to be relaxed. 

12. Oversized Tunic Sweater Outfit

Travel outfit Ideas

Another casual travel outfit that looks put together is wearing an oversized tunic sweate r with leggings or straight-leg pants.

This oversized sweater from Amazon has two slits on the sides and is long enough to cover your bum. This is an easy style to just throw on for an effortlessly chic casual look.

Add in a faux leather legging for extra shine. These Faux leather leggings on Amazon aren’t too compressing, which makes them a great option for long-haul flights or long trips.

Fit: R uns slightly oversized. Wearing a Medium.

13. Black Leggings

Amazon Leggings

I’ve gone through trial and error to find the best leggings on Amazon… and these black pair of leggings are the best I’ve found.

These leggings are very similar to the Lululemon Align leggings but are a fraction of the price. They truly feel buttery soft, hug the right places, and have medium compression for tummy control.

Plus leggings are so comfortable on any flight and they make going through airport security a breeze.

Fit : Size down for a more compressed feel. Wearing size M

14. Wide leg Pants

travel outfit pants

@danaberez Airport outfit idea: The most comfortable travel pant on amazon! Wearng size L comes in so many colors #amazonloungewear #amazonfashionfinds #amazonfindfashion #airportoutfit ♬ original sound – Dana Berez

Another pant option I love to wear on long-haul flights are these Amazon wide-leg pants . The material is extremely stretchy, has some tummy compression, and pockets, and feels weightless on you. They are also wrinkle-resistant- great for summer travel!!

I have paired these pants with basic tee shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets making this a year-round travel pant. Add in high compression socks to keep your ankles warm.

Note: I’ve washed mine a few times and there is some pilling on the fabric, but they are so comfortable I overlook it.

Fit: Runs true to size wearing a size large

Travel Outfit Accessories

Here are some of my favorite Amazon travel outfit accessories to complete your look and add function and comfort that out together great travel outfits.

Weekender Bag

I have to admit I have a few favorite weekend bags on Amazon, so here are my top 2 favorites.

black weekender bag amazon

shop on Amazon

This weekender tote bag seriously feels just like my Beis Weekender bag. But the best part, it’s for a fraction of the price, and it’s a bit smaller making it fit under the airplane seat in front of you a breeze. A great carry-on option along with your luggage.

I like the textured canvas exterior and wire framing adding strurcture to the bag. Plus there is a zippered compartment for your shoes.

amazon carry on bag

Another favorite is my BagSmart Weekend Bag-   the perfect carry-on. This bag has so many helpful pockets to keep your items organized, and I appreciate the helpful narrow laptop compartment.

While this bag does not have a shoe compartment, you’ll have more room on the inside of the bag and it has a helpful trolly sleeve to use with your suitcase. Plus the straps have held up, even after plenty of use.

belt bag amazon

I love carrying all my travel essentials in this belt bag , especially going through the airport. I keep my phone, passport, wallet, and boarding pass in my belt bag and I can feel confident knowing I have the most important things right on me.

Plus you can wear this cross-body bag to your destination as well.

This belt bag from Amazon is affordable and feels just like the one from Lululemon for a fraction of the price. Such a game changer for organized travel.

Adidas White Sneakers

Adidas Travel Sneakers

My all-time favorite white sneakers are the Adidas Advantage Sneakers . Over the years I’ve owned a few pairs of this style and keep going back because they are comfortable to wear (even when you first put them on, no need to break them in ).

These sneakers also match with any airport outfit and any outfit you decide to wear in your destination. This means you don’t have to pack another pair of shoes when you wear them!

Another trendy Adidas style is the Adidas Sambas . These are actually a mens style, but if you can get your hands on them they make a chic statement.

READ NEXT – All-time Favorite White Sneakers for Women

New Balance Sneakers

New Balance 574 sneakers

If you’re looking for another comfortable shoe, the New Balance 574 sneakers are extremely comfortable and on-trend. I also love the fact that you can wear these with so many outfits and you don’t need to break them in.

FAQ: Can you wear sandals on an airplane?

I’ve worn Birkenstock pair of sandals on an airplane, and I have to admit I did get a lot of looks. However, if you find them comfortable you can wear sandals.

I’d just bring a pair of socks to cover your feet… I find it can be a bit strange to stare at your neighbor’s bare toes mid-flight.

What about heels? For the most comfort, I’d avoid wearing heels.

Baseball Hat

yankee baseball hat

Want to know a way to look stylish at the airport or traveling? Wearing a baseball hat is so genius because you don’t have to worry about doing your hair, and it looks super cute.

I love these sporty baseball hats on Amazon because some teams have neutral color options making it easy to match with any travel outfit.

Sunglasses & Jewelry

I believe that sunglasses just hide any sign of being tired, which is perfect for long travel days. Plus it adds a sophisticated touch to any outfit!

Add in dainty jewelry like small earrings, rings, and a pendant necklace to dress up your outfit.

Oversized Scarf

Oversized scarf

Another accessory to bring is an oversized scarf. This is a fall winter travel essential because you can cover your shoulders and neck when you need to, and stow away the scarf when you don’t need it!

And once your car, bus, or airplane starts blasting the cool air conditioning you can always grab your oversized scarf or packable jacket!

A cashmere scarf is luxurious and keeps you warm.

Howdy Michele, I love to travel. I’ve read so many posts about travel gadgets, but you are the best one. Your article was beneficial in finding the necessary devices. I personally like an anti-theft shockproof backpack, which is ScanSmart TSA friendly and water-resistant. It is useful for everyone.

Thank you so much, Kim :)

Hello, I have gone through your guide and seems to be interesting though I have one more concern on the WiFi devices. Can you recommend me on the best Pocket Device that will work well on anywhere I travel. I have using AllDayWifi but its very slow on their international data plan. I have been considering RentnConnect though I know very little about it

Hi Collins, have you considered this Skyroam device ? It one of the leaders in the market and very compact.

travel outfit accessories

What about this Trackimo 3G Travel Tracker device this has Light Exposure Sensor – detect/alerts when package or luggage is opened. I am currently using this tracker and i found this very useful to me every time i go travel around the world :)

Excellent addition Helen, thank you :)

travel outfit accessories

A tracking device would be a great addition to this list.

travel outfit accessories

Amazing! This makes traveling easier.

travel outfit accessories

Definitely brilliant ideas worth sharing

travel outfit accessories

This IS such a cool list! I thought I had everything, but then I found out the door travel alarm (never would’ve thought of it)!. And I wonder how good the neck support (#33) is because there were PLENTY of times I could have used something like that on my trips.

Hey Trang, the door alarm is such a great idea especially for those times when you just don’t feel safe :) Is there anything you’d add to the list?

travel outfit accessories

I just carry a small rubber door stop wedge.

travel outfit accessories

WOW! This is one extensive list of all things travel and certainly one that I will be using to give hints to my friends and family round the holiday season. The new ScanSmart backpack along with the waterproof phone case and solar charger are on top of my list. However my top two purchases are going to be the smart suitcase and the backpack which are absolutely brilliant. Thanks for such a cool list.

travel outfit accessories

Hi Michele, There are all great ideas. I have one more suggestion for you. Smart Blanket! I used it when flying to Zurich to see my son and his family. The plane was freezing, and there were no blankets to be had. I was the only one that was warm and cozy for the whole 8 hours. I love mine. Got it on Amazon I paid $49.00 for mine. Think they are having a sale on them now. Hope you like my suggestion.

travel outfit accessories

The door alarm and aeroplane pillow are a great idea to stay comfy and safe! I always take an extension lead when I travel; so that I have more plug sockets in a hotel room, and it also means you don’t need as many adapters when you travel. You also can’t go wrong with baby wipes and small-ish plastic bags in case a seat is wet, a bottle is leaking or you’ve got a mark on your clothes! ✈️?

All brilliant ideas Emily :) Thanks for sharing. I love the baby wipes idea!

12 Travel Clothes, Accessories, and Bags From Amazon That Look Designer — but Start at $8

These stylish finds look like you’re flying First Class but have a Basic Economy price tag.

My love for comfortable travel clothing knows no bounds. And that love can only be topped by one thing: if my comfortable travel outfit looks more expensive than it really is. Over the years of being a travel and shopping writer, I’ve finally cracked the code to looking like I’m flying First Class even if I’m not, and it’s all thanks to the affordable options at Amazon.

For example, I was recently shopping for a bodysuit. I typically prefer a thick, well-made one, and my favorites tend to be from Abercrombie & Fitch. The mid-priced Abercrombie Crew Neck Bodysuit , for instance, is a high-quality, stretchy cotton number, and it retails for $45. But recently, during one of my routine Amazon digs, I discovered this one by a brand called Mangopop , and it's strikingly similar. More than 9,000 Amazon five-star reviewers vouch for it, too —  and this doppelganger is half the price at just $22.

Amazon, it turns out, is packed to the gills with top-rated clothing, accessories and even travel bags that look, fit, and perform like some of the most coveted high-end items out there. But in true Amazon fashion, these finds are blissfully affordable. It was easy to pinpoint 12 travel-friendly picks that belong in your shopping cart — and then in your suitcase — stat. Among them are lookalikes of brand names like Theory, Aritzia, Marc Jacobs, Tumi, and yes, even Gucci: a dead-ringer of one of their most famous pairs of loafers for less than $30, in fact. Go ahead and treat yourself: even if you’re flying Economy, no one would ever know it with these styles. 

Steve Madden Women's Rezume Sneaker

Buy on Amazon

We travelers love our sneakers, don't we? While in Lisbon, I found a pair of sneakers that looked just like those famous Golden Goose sneakers . You know, the ones with the star on the side and the distressed finish that somehow retail for $915? In this particular pair it's the Swarovski crystal embellishments, but I found a pair by Steve Madden that uses crushed glitter to pretty much the same effect — and this pair costs just $80. Same distressed look, too, so you'll definitely be fooling everyone around you. One shopper wrote, “For those of you asking, they are an exact knock off of the pricey Golden Goose sneakers... which I also own. I barely wear those. They are not as comfortable.”

Cosetten The Tote Bag

This might be one of the best steals I found. The Marc Jacobs tote bag is pretty recognizable, but you'd need an eagle eye to tell it apart from Amazon's Cosetten tote bag , especially in the cream version. It has the same shape, the same handles and the same stitching; the only thing it doesn't have is the Marc Jacobs brand name. But when you compare $450 to an economical $29, it sure is worth it. Just think of how many souvenirs you can carry in there! “The entire bag is fantastic! If can be pulled off as a real Marc Jacob bag,” wrote a happy shopper. “The leather is nice and it smells like leather when you open it.”

Queenieke Running Jacket

Who's not a sucker for a good Lululemon piece? The Define jacket kind of defines the brand, and it retails for $118. But this Amazon version by Queenieke is so similar, even in color, that Amazon shoppers are drawing comparisons. It has the same fitted cut, the same stylish seams and it's made of sweat-wicking fabric so it performs well, too. “I bought this after my coworker had the Lululemon brand one that looks similar,” wrote a happy reviewer. “I do not make Lululemon $$. But I still like to look like I do.”

Libin Cargo Joggers

Lightweight and stretchy, the Abercrombie & Fitch YPB Motion Tech cargo joggers were made for active travelers. They retail for $80, but Amazon's Libin Cargo joggers are just $35. They have the same drapey fit, elasticized waist and ankle cuffs and handy pockets on the sides. They've got something extra too: built-in UPF 50+ sun protection. Almost 9,000 Amazon shoppers gave them a five star review. One wrote: “I bought them to travel. Perfect airplane pants, plenty of pockets for everything: phone, ID, passport, money, anything for a quick grab. Comfortable for all day wear. Very light weight, soft, and they breathe.”

Amazon Basics Hanging Travel Bag

Tumi is a status symbol for sure, and the company’s Alpha hanging toiletry bag has a price tag that reflects that: $195. But check out this one by Amazon Basics : it's so similar it's hard to tell the two apart, and this one is just $19 on sale. Like the Tumi, it's packed with compartments and it's also made of waterproof fabric in case of spills. “This is almost identical to a Tumi toiletry bag, which sells for almost ten times as much,” one of thousands of astute reviewers pointed out. “Very good quality, seems sturdy, and like it will last for many uses. I think the organization and compartments are well thought out.”

Bison Spirit Mules Slip-on Loafers

When I say identical, I mean identical: the sophisticated Gucci Princeton Leather Slipper that retails for a whopping $860 has a twin on Amazon that's only $35. The gold buckle on top of the Bison Spirit mule is impossible to tell apart from the real thing. Shape of the shoe? Same. The heel? Same. You’ll be enamored and want to book a trip to the Amalfi Coast just to look dapper in them. “I have worn them every day since I got them. So comfortable,” one shopper attested.

Rooscier Women's Satin Collar Wrap V Neck

Theory’s Silk Georgette Wrap blouse is a stunner, and so is its $395 price tag — just not in a good way. But Amazon's Rooscier blouse could pass for the real thing at a much more palatable $26. It has the same satiny finish, the same billowy sleeves and the same ruched wrapping effect on the side. It even has a collar just like the original. Wear it tucked into a pair of jeans or loose over a pair of slacks to be dinnertime chic in your favorite city.

Tianyesy Sunglasses

Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses have that signature look: you know them when you see them based on the geometric shapes within the frames. There's a hexagonal pair that pretty distinctly belongs to the brand, and it retails for $317. Amazon has a pair that looks almost exactly the same except for the D&G logo on the side, but who's going to really know it's missing? And who's going to know that this pair is just — brace yourself — $8? And yes, this pair has UV protection. “They are so cute! They have a nice weight to them too which makes them feel very high end for the price point,” one person wrote.

Luvamia Blazer

I bought myself a versatile Aritzia blazer for my birthday a few years ago and it’s a mainstay in my suitcase. I'm pretty sure it's the Aritzia Babaton Blazer , which the company sells for $198. I love the unique, angular cut and the fact that it has no collar — so stylish. For just $44 you can have basically the exact same thing in Amazon's Luvamia blazer . It’s lined and machine-washable. “I love the fit and look of this jacket. Light and airy, not heavy. Feels like linen,” wrote a fan.

Pumiey High-Neck Sleeveless Bodysuit

You're probably seeing high-neck halter bodysuits everywhere and have been for a while. A lot of brands make them, including Revolve and Skims. Revolve’s popular Reading Bodysuit is $98 while the coveted Skims Fits Everybody High Neck Bodysuit is $58, but Amazon's version by Pumiey is on sale for just $22. It sculpts, skims, and stretches just like its pricier counterparts. “This body suit is so flattering and soft. I love this brand way more than Skims,” wrote a delighted reviewer. “The crotch area is made well and is comfortable. Material is stretchy but not see through. I used nipple covers and went braless. 10/10 would recommend.”

Frank Mully Pointed Toe Flats

Rothy’s: to know them is to love them —  but not necessarily to afford them. The ultimate knit, washable travel shoes retail for $149, but check out this Frank Mully version for just $39. It's identical to Rothy's The Point flats , and comes in a lot of the same colors and patterns including my favorite: leopard print. “These are so comfortable and look just like Rothy’s! No one needs to know they are not,” wrote one of thousands of five-star reviewers. 

Jessica Simpson Denim Whisker Wash Wide-Leg Jeans

It's a bold statement, but Madewell made it: The Perfect Vintage Wide Leg Jeans are, admittedly, incredibly cool — but they're also pretty pricey. Log on to Amazon, though, and you'll see that Jessica Simpson's denim line is a strong competitor with its Whisker Wash Wide Leg Jeans for just $52. That's less than half the price of Madewell. “Second pair of Jessica Simpson jeans I bought. Extremely well made and the fit is great,” wrote someone from the singer-turned-fashion mogul’s strong fan base.

How to Make a Yard Out of Nothing

Portrait of Dominique Pariso

Most city-dwellers are not in possession of palatial backyards, let alone any proper outdoor space to call their own. As temperatures rise and it becomes more difficult to find a socially distanced spot in the park, many are looking for ways to put their rusty fire escapes and unfinished roofs to use. Here, ideas on how to transform even the bleakest of spaces. [ Editor’s note: Before getting started on your own setup, be sure to consult your local fire, safety, and building regulations. ]

If You Have a Stoop:

Create a backrest out of plywood.

“My family wanted to be able to sit on our stoop without the iron rail digging into our backs. So we cut some plywood with a saw into 24-by-9-inch boards to use as backrests. We call it the Stoop Sit.” —Chris Mitchell, former chief business officer and publisher at Vanity Fair

Lowes Sanded Plywood

Turn the Handrail Into a Trellis

“Plant trumpet vine or climbing hydrangea in a large planter (at least a foot high), then tie a piece of the vine to the handrail with twine to get it to grow around the rail.” —Krissie Nagy, owner of BK Bumpkin

Climbing Hydrangea Vines

Put Out a Picnic Table — and Suggest Your Neighbors Do the Same

travel outfit accessories

“Years ago, we got a pine picnic table and have used it for meals on our front stoop since. Recently, four of the houses next to us did as well; now, we often eat at the same time.” — Dan Pelosi , creative director

Southern Yellow Pine Picnic Table

If You Have a Fire Escape:

Design a deep-fryer station.

travel outfit accessories

“A friend put a deep fryer out on the fire escape with an extension cord so she could make fried chicken without it stinking up the house. A tiny hibachi is great too — you can barbecue right outside your window.” — Young Huh , interior designer

Elite Gourmet 3.5 Quart Immersion Deep Fryer

Lay Down AstroTurf

“AstroTurf-esque grass just makes it a little bit nicer to lie out on. I measured the fire escape, cut the grass to size with scissors, and laid it down. Done. Took me five minutes.” —Rod Thomas, singer-songwriter-DJ

SavvyGrow Artificial Grass

Hang a Hammock

“Attach a hammock chair to the corners of the fire escape above — choose the ones that are closest to the building so you have a safer distance from the edge.”— Chiara de Rege , interior designer

Extra-Large Mayan Hammock Chair

Install a Handrail Table

“A tuckaway, balcony-mounted tabletop is a perfect thing to latch to the rail on your fire escape — you can pop it up for impromptu dinners or drinks, then put it back down when it’s not in use.” —Ming Thompson, co-founder of Atelier Cho Thompson

Balcony Deck Side Table

Fashion a Makeshift Daybed

travel outfit accessories

“I lay out my cozy duvet cover and some comfy pillows so I can take an hour or two to meditate or soak in the sun every day. And my husband turns the window into a to-go bar and passes me margaritas.” —Dariana Perez, blogger

Urban Outfitters Peaches Duvet Set

If You Have an Unfinished Roof

Host a buildingwide film series.

travel outfit accessories

“For the screen, we used thick fabric I bought from Mood, which we punched holes into and attached to two lighting poles with zip ties. Then we bought a Crenova projector and a Harman Bluetooth speaker. Everyone brings up their own pillows and soccer-mom chairs and popcorn. Our inaugural screening was Clue ; every week, a different apartment nominates a movie.” —Jeffrey Vizcaino, media producer

Crenova Video Projector

Assemble an Outdoor Office

“Make a bench that’s safe for outside use — it’s really easy. All you need to do is buy four concrete cinder blocks and two long two-by-four-inch pieces of wood. You can bring your laptop and sit up there and work.” —Jared Blake and Ed Be, founders of Lichen

16 in. x 8 in. x 8 in. Normal Weight Concrete Block Regular

Lay Down Lots of Rugs

travel outfit accessories

“I attached dozens of six-by-eight-foot outdoor rugs from Home Depot to the roof with a spray adhesive — it made the space feel so much more intentional.” —Kiel Wuellner, home stylist

Unbound Smoke Gray Ribbed 6 ft. x 8 ft. Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug

Shopping in Moscow can be quite a daunting experience – you can walk for miles without finding anything but mass-market brands and overpriced boutiques. But, if you do it right, it can also be quite fun. Here are our top tips on how to get the most out of your shopping trip in Moscow.

Shopping malls 

There are many shopping malls all around Moscow, but there three that double as bona fide tourist attractions: GUM, TsUM and Detsky Mir, all within walking distance from each other. GUM is one of the oldest department stores in the country. It’s famous for the glass roof designed by one of Russia’s most celebrated architects, Vladimir Shukhov.  Today it serves as a high-class shopping mall. There are plenty of luxury shops, a supermarket that sells lots of signature Russian goods and several places to eat. Head to the more expensive  Bosco Cafe with a Kremlin view or, for a budget option, try the Soviet-style cafeteria Stolovaya No 57 . GUM also occasionally hosts contemporary art exhibitions in one of its three main aisles.

TsUM  is another shopping mall from the pre-revolutionary times. It’s the most luxurious store in the city, famous for its paper bags that many Muscovites carry around or post pictures of on Instagram to let everyone know they shop there. Full of haute couture boutiques, TsUM also has a rooftop restaurant Buro , frequented by Russian celebrities. Tsentralny Detsky Mir  children's store is perfect if you are looking for a gift for a kid or want to check out its awesome viewing platform with good views over central Moscow. At just R50 per ticket it’s a steal.

Food stalls and markets 

There are two food markets that are worth checking out in Moscow.  Danilovsky Market  became the trailblazer of Moscow’s foodie revolution when it got an uplift in 2017. As well as many trendy food stalls, the market also hosts lectures, film viewing and even theatre productions, and it recently opened an antiques section. It’s an architectural landmark, a masterpiece of late Soviet modernism that looks like a UFO. Food at  Usachevsky Market  tends to be a bit more pricey and upmarket. Both markets also sell plenty of fresh produce, local cheeses and cured meats.

Antiques and flea markets 

Shopping can also be a way to get away from the major landmarks and explore some sights off the beaten path. Moscow’s #1 flea market is  Izmailovsky , located in and around the pseudo-historical complex 'Izmailovsky Kremlin' with its colourful walls and domes. Open daily, it’s best to come here on the weekend to catch better deals. Admittedly tacky, Kremlin has a handful of weird museums like the Vodka History Museum or Baba Yaga Museum (Baba Yaga is a Russian fairy tale character). Part of the market had been gentrified into creative cluster Vernissage , with hipster coffee shops, various workshops and Svalka , an enormous two-floor secondhand shop with everything from used books to vintage clothing.

For high-class antiques, rare books and icons head to Antikvarnaya Lavka (Antique Store) just off Bolshaya Nikitskaya street (5 Kalashny Pereulok). Here you can snag a real masterpiece – a painting or a sculpture – but the prices are quite steep. 

Four great day trips from Moscow

If you are looking for a more authentic place with less hustle, one option is the antiques market on the premises of vodka distillery Crystal (4 ul Samokatnaya), which you can reach by taking tram 20 to Samokatnaya ul from the exit of metro Chkalovskaya. The market is located in the basement of one of the red-brick factory buildings. There are plenty of antiques, books and various Soviet-time memorabilia, such as Stalin and Lenin busts. While at Crystal, be sure to check out great works of street art – they are all around the factory premises. 

For die-hard antique collectors there’s also a place right outside of Moscow – Novopodrezkovo market (also know as Levsha market). Take a suburban train from Leningradsky station to Novopodrezkovo (approximately half an hour), cross the tracks to the other side and there you’ll find it – a treasure trove of used books, vinyl records, clothing, paintings and antique furniture.   

Where to shop for Russian designs

Gosha Rubchinskiy might be the only Russian clothing designer of world renown, especially after his collaboration with Kanye West, but there are many more up-and-coming fashion stars worth checking out. One of the places to do it is KM20 , the place Moscow fashionistas, with streetwear brands from all over the world and a lot of very rare items. There's also one of the best vegetarian cafes in Moscow on second floor. 

GUM shopping mall has a two-storey store devoted to Russian designers –  Sektsiya (Section). Section sells products made by 50 Russian brands, from accessories to Heart of Moscow souvenir pins. Plus there’s a bar overlooking the Red Square. 

If you are not into high fashion, but still interested in getting a cool outfit with Cyrillic script, check out the creative cluster centred around two abandoned factories: Flakon and Khlebozavod . One of the biggest stores is Zaporozhets Heritage  at Flakon , which sells clothing and accessories styled after various Soviet pop culture icons. The northern part, Khlebozavod, hosts several shops like Yunost  and Khlebny  that take a more punk-rock approach to streetwear. After shopping, have a pint at a great local craft beer bar Svoboda  or a coffee at Floo .        

Sputnik 1985 is a Russian clothing brand specialising in hoodies and hats with quotes in Cyrillic and retro prints. The store is located in a courtyard on Pokrovka street (19 Ulitsa Pokrovka).

Travel + Leisure / Daisy Rodriguez

As a travel writer, I spend a lot of time on airplanes . And if I have my way, I’m always headed somewhere warm and tropical (ideally with placid turquoise seas, please). But no matter the temperature at my destination, I find that I’m almost always freezing on airplanes — sometimes to the point of actual shivering, and sometimes to the detriment of quality sleep. 

So, I have to prepare for my own comfort by dressing and packing my carry-on appropriately. For starters, I always bring a pair of fuzzy socks to slip on once I'm in my seat, and even if I'm on my way to some place warm, I make sure to wear joggers and sweatshirts to keep my plane dressing easy and cozy. Plus, I like to toss an extra layer — like a versatile wrap that I can use at my destination, too — in my bag just in case. 

If you’re thin-skinned like me and always cold on planes, consider this your sign to get prepared before you board your next flight. These cozy clothing and accessory finds will keep you perfectly comfortable in the cabin — and they’re all at Amazon right now for less than $50. Keep scrolling to shop these travel writer-approved picks that will make flying incredibly more comfortable, even if you're stuck in a middle seat. 

Anrabess Hoodie and Sweatpants Set

On a plane, you’ll find me in a matching set — not just for warmth, but for convenience and versatility. Pro tip: you can wear the pieces together or separately at your destination. This one-and-done set includes an oversized hoodie sweatshirt with a kangaroo pocket as well as jogger sweatpants with a drawstring waist. They're made with a cozy fleece material that will keep you warm and cozy, and I'm sure that you'll be sporting it long after your trip is over. 

“This is so ooey-gooey comfy without being too hot," a reviewer assured . "It quickly became my absolute favorite lounge set. I reach for it literally every day." 

To buy: , $40 (originally $46)

Scurtain Rubber Sole Slippers

Even when I have the (extremely rare) good fortune of sitting in a business-class seat, the foot-covering amenities tend to be lackluster (think: paper-thin socks). These slippers are cozier alternatives, with rubber soles for grip and moisture-wicking, elastic knitted mesh uppers that feel like socks. And, they roll up like socks, too, which means that you can stuff them into your purse, backpack, or pockets for easy access. It's not hard to see why they have more than 7,000 five-star ratings. 

One shopper wrote , “For long-haul air travel, they fit easily in a carry-on, and can be worn on the flight both at your seat and going back and forth to the washroom, or just taking a walk up and down the aisle." 

To buy: , $17 (originally $23)

Melifluos Designed Shawl Wrap

This open-front shawl-wrap-poncho hybrid is the definition of a travel multitasker. I’d use it to stay warm on the plane and to layer over my dresses and favorite vacation tops at my destination. And because it’s reversible, you get two looks in one, which is always a bonus if you're packing light. Heck, it can even be used as a travel pillow or blanket in a pinch if you roll it up. It’s made of 100 percent bamboo viscose, so it’s sustainable as well as cozy. At 48 inches by 48 inches, it’s generously sized (one size fits all) and it comes in a whopping 45 color options. 

"I just wrap it around my shoulders when I get a little chilly and I can easily take it off when I get hot," a shopper explained in their review. "I like to travel with it as opposed to a sweater because I also use it for my legs if they get cold. This is one of the best purchases I've made." 

To buy: , $37 (originally $45)

Tirrinia Travel Blanket With Feet

If you get really cold on airplanes, then you'll need to really step up your cozy game. This wearable travel blanket has foot pockets to keep you warm and covered, even as you shift around in your seat. I love that the front has a zippered pocket so you can keep your in-flight essentials like your phone, headphones, and more close by. It also folds up into an attached zippered carrying bag with a handle for portability. 

“I connect it on my [luggage] and backpack,” a frequent traveler shared . “It's easy to quickly put it back in its own bag. It's so soft and warm. It's a must-have for the airplane traveler who gets cold.”

To buy: , $21

Puli Button Shawl Sweater

This easy-to-wear shawl sweater is great for staying warm on the plane. I'm a fan of its button-closure detail, which dresses it up for more versatile uses. Made of viscose, polyester, and nylon, this cover-up is soft and stretchy as well as lightweight for all-season wear. Did I mention that it's available in 29 colors and up to 45 percent off? 

"This piece is a must-have," according to one Amazon reviewer . "It is incredibly versatile and I love to travel with it. It can be a wrap, it can act like a scarf — or even a poncho. It's perfect for cool nights or when it gets chilly on the airplane. It looks super chic and brings a travel look together in seconds. It's super easy to pack." 

To buy: , $22 (originally $40)

Ablanczoom Longline Zip-Up Hoodie

Ever wish that you could zip up your favorite blanket and wear it? Well, you kind of can with the Ablanczoom Hoodie. It's your average sweatshirt, only a little bit longer — kind of like a dress. It's perfect to throw on over leggings, joggers, or jeans, and it has a super-soft fleece lining that will keep you warm when the cabin air conditioning kicks in. There's also a drawstring hood and two side pockets for stashing items that you'll want to keep close. 

"The Fleece lining is just warm enough without too much weight or bulk," one traveler explained . "It fits in my suitcase for winter travel or air conditioned rooms. It does triple duty as a robe, poolside cover-up, and an extra clothing layer."

To buy: , $39 (originally $52)

Catalonia Wearable Blanket

It’s a blanket, it’s a poncho, it's a robe — it’s whatever you want it to be to transform your frigid seat into a self-care cocoon. Magnetic snaps close the poncho neck opening when you want to use it as a blanket, which I definitely recommend doing since it's made with snuggly fleece fabric. A major bonus for travelers like me, who obsessively keep my essentials close on planes: There's a large front pocket that holds a phone, snacks, lip balm, or whatever else you'll need.

"I bought this on a whim before a recent trip because I'm always chilly on planes, and it ended up being a fantastic decision in more ways than one," a shopper shared . "We dealt with several delays (turning 10 hours of travel into 36) and during that time, this blanket kept me and my husband warm in multiple airports as we grabbed what sleep we could." They also added that "it's super soft and cozy, and it rolled up easily to fit in my carry-on bag. Maybe it looks a little silly to walk around in, but who cares if you're warm!" 

To buy: , $20 (originally $36)

EverSnug Travel Blanket and Pillow Set

This travel blanket has tons of smart features that make it perfect for chilly planes. Measuring 65 inches by 40 inches, the blanket tucks into a soft carrying case that allows it to double as a pillow (but only when the blanket isn't in use). There's also a luggage sleeve at the back of the case that attaches easily to your carry-on handle for convenient portability. What's more, the microplush blanket is super soft and velvety, which is, undoubtedly, a huge improvement over any airline-provided blanket.

An Amazon customer commented , "This really comes in handy in the plane and even when you get to your destination. The material is so plush but still lightweight…I literally take mine whenever I travel — car ride or plane trip!"

Daverose Wearable Blanket Hoodie

I have absolutely zero shame when it comes to prioritizing my own comfort on travel days, so I’m unconcerned about the silliness of this cartoonishly oversized blanket hoodie. There’s a huge pocket in front for essentials (and then some), and a giant hood, which adds a layer of warmth and a sense of privacy and personal space; you have to get creative when you’re sitting in economy, after all. 

In their review, a frequent flier said , "When I travel, I’m frequently cold in cabins, etc. I found this keeps me warm, very soft, easy to transport, and lightweight."

UnHide Faux Fur Travel Blanket

I’m a vegetarian and I definitely don’t wear fur, but I do love the warmth and poshness of that fur feel. This cruelty-free faux fur blanket gives those super-soft and luxe vibes. It’s sized for travel with its 50-inch by 60-inch frame, and it’s lightweight (weighing just 1.7 pounds) for easy packing and carrying. 

What's more, it’s machine washable and it “looks as chic as a travel blanket can look,” according to a reviewer, who regularly brings it on the road.

Bulinlulu Fuzzy Socks Set

Keep your feet warm and protected with these plush-like chenille socks, which are at an excellent value; you can get a set of seven on sale for just $17. They have rubber treads on the bottom for gripping to airplane lavatory floors or aisles, but can still be worn inside of your sneakers and boots once you touchdown. Plus, you can easily toss them in the wash after a long travel day, which can't be the same for all shoes and slippers.

"I didn’t think socks this perfect existed," a buyer exclaimed . "They are soft, light, and not too warm… It was my lucky day when I found these!"  

To buy: , $21 (originally $23)

Heat Holders Thermal Men's Socks

These socks are all business. Developed with super-insulating, cashmere-like acrylic yarn, they're exceptionally warm — in fact, the brand notes that they're several times warmer than typical cotton, or even thermal socks. The insides are super soft and equipped with long-pile cushioning for extra support and coziness. Outside of the cabin, you'll be happy you packed these if your destination is extra chilly. 

They keep feet “nice and toasty and not sweaty,” according to one reviewer , and that’s the sweet spot for comfort on long-haul flights. 

To buy: , $19 (originally $20)
