In The Bag: Traveler’s Global Style Accessories For The Weekend
Accessories that can work anywhere in the world are essential for a traveler to showcase a global style, especially for the weekend when you are packing light and need an easy transition back to your day-to-day routine. Once you’ve picked your travel companion—for this trip to Cartagena, Coach’s Bleecker Legacy Weekend Tote ($658) for its modern heritage design and spacious body—its time to pack the necessities for your journey. So what do you bring in the bag?
If you’re only going to be traveling for a short time, no need to bring that laptop of yours obviously, but if you need to get some sort of work done or you need to catch up on your shows while in transit, a tablet is the way to go. However for any international trip, the first thing you need before that is to style up your passport:
Passport Cover – Men In Cities
From Yuvi Alpert’s Men In Cities (an edited, limited collection of accessories each month with each item costing the same price), this beige Global Nomad Passport Cover ($40) has a vintage inspired charm to it. With two large pockets on each inside flap—one for a passport end and the other for your ticket—and a smaller pocket on the right flap (not pictured).
Tablet Cover – Tumi
The longtime premium travel brand, Tumi, has a clean design mini iPad case that comes in several different colors. Going classic with black, the Leather Snap Case ($95) is as easy as it sounds to put on, and comes with a sleek portfolio style cover that folds into an easel.
Sunglasses – Wonderland
It’s always good to have at least one pair of shades when visiting somewhere with a lot of sun. A classic torte pattern on a geometric style built by hand, Wonderland’s Riverside ($135) really gets to what the LA-brand stands for—a celebration of its sunny SoCal roots.
Headphones – Skullcandy
To complement the olive tote, these Skullcandy Aviators ($150) are perfect for any global or local travel occasion—daily commuting to New York or a seven hour flight to South America. With a cool design and cushiony leather ear covers for comfort, they provide a killer sound as well.
Dopp Kit – Herschel Supply Co.
Herschel Supply offers an array of solids and patterns for all of its different bag and accessory styles, but this Chapter dopp kit stuck out to me recently for both its color use (natural and basic blue) and the cool dotted scheme.
