Packing can incite quite a lot of stress. It’s easy to overpack, and the clothes you choose can make or break that trip! Whether catching a lunch meeting or exploring an exotic island, you’ll most likely find me in one category of clothing: one-and-done dresses. Add some statement tops and chic pants to the mix and my carry-on is ready. Never mind that big suitcase – I wouldn’t have the patience to wait for it at the baggage carousel!

For casual days or trips to the airport, you can’t go wrong with a soft rib-knit midi. It is comfortable thanks to the relaxed cut, but still looks polished with its flattering V-shaped neckline.

6. Linen Wrap Dress from LIPHOP

Talk about looking put-together and polished for a casual day at the office!
10. Woven Slides from DANI LOVE
Woven flats are the perfect travel staple, especially when paired with fun dresses. These slides, with their clean lines, minimal styling and pointed toes, are pretty much meant for summer getaways, but they work just as wonderfully with office looks. The woven details look great with anything from neutrals to prints – not to mention how easy and light to pack they are. I won’t miss my flip-flops one bit.
