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).
Outfit: On The Edge For Fall
The cold fall air is in full swing here in the Northeast, which means its time to pull put on those wool jackets if haven’t been already. For an edgier look than the classic wool zip-up or peacoat, Canadian luxury outwear brand Mackage offers jackets and coats that combine three fall and winter essential skins and styles: wool, leather and the down jacket.
Browsing Mackage’s current collection, the Sinclair Biker is an asymmetrical styled wool zip up with leather trimming and notched lapels. You get two looks with this coat, as the down nylon arms are removable. To style this black beauty, I had Vee Travels model Hayden put on a black camo waffle crew from Uniqlo, H&M blue jeans, a Tibetan Mask Bead Bracelet from Yuvi Alpert’s Men In Cities, black Express aviators and a pair of suede lace up ALDO mid-calf boots that he surprised me with.
Hayden’s signature mohawk style and ear piercings added the perfect edge to the overall look
