Style shines through even when you're travelling. Don't think just because you're in vacation mode that folks aren't paying attention. Whatever your personal style is, there are some essentials that give you a polished look.
Invest in a good duffel bag for weekend getaways, either leather, wool or canvas. The KENNETH COLE Roma Satchel is a great carry-on. This fully lined bag has two exterior pockets for travel documents, a detachable shoulder strap, and metal feet. I also like the JACK SPADE Bleacher Plaid Ajax Duffel. On sale at www.jackspade.com for $197.50. Passport covers can be customized with your initials. AIAIAI Noise Cancelling Headphones are ideal for long flights. Blocks out crying babies and chatty travellers. And I also suggest a comfortable pair of jeans. Cashmere jeans are more forgiving than denim when you're sitting for a while. Try on NAKED AND FAMOUS Slim Guy Cashmere Jeans/$260. Take along a great pair of shades to hide tired eyes, a good read and you're set.
