Catch a glimpse of how you can tailor the perfect packing list for any trip you have in mind!
J. Crew Icon Trench
A classic trench coat is a wardrobe stable, especially for those rainy spring months! Readers opted for this beautiful J.Crew trench, made of 100% cotton and full of function. Water-repellent but also breathable, it offers a relaxed fit with an adjustable belt and a removable hood and is overall such a comfy and layer-able option that’ll take you from season to season.
Sizes range from 00-24 and petite 00-12, available here.
Our readers voted for the best black travel pants and these were their favorite styles!
MOTHER The Hustler Cropped Bootcut Jeans
After sharing these jeans with readers, many have tried them for themselves and absolutely adore them as well! This pair has caught on for good reason — they boast a fashion-forward silhouette with a subtle bootcut and cropped, frayed hem, while the denim fabric is lightweight with some added stretch for comfort.
While these are pricey, what pained me more was all the other pairs I purchased. I now have at least 6 other jeans that I’d previously bought and paid an average of $40-$100 each. I didn’t need all of those subpar styles, I just needed the right one! And readers agree, by buying up some pairs themselves!
Eddie Bauer Departure Button Down Shirt
The Eddie Bauer Departure shirt has become a part of my travel “uniform” that easily transitions from beach to city and from daily wear to travel. I usually like to be a tad above strictly casual, and I love how it emits a casual but polished look. This shirt with jeans has been endlessly versatile for me!
And readers continually buy it up as well because it’s so great as a catch-all button down! It’s super soft and looks more like a regular blouse than a travel or hiking top, but it has incredible features, including UPF 50+ protection and moisture-wicking capabilities. It comes in sizes XS-XXL, petite S-L, tall M-XXL, and plus 2X-3X.

Blondo Halo Waterproof Loafer
A sleek option to elevate your travel looks, readers were loving this Blondo loafer for its comfort and waterproof finish. This is a perfect spring shoe, as it can totally handle sudden spring showers, has great traction, and its modern, chunky look goes with everything from trousers and a trench coat to flowy dresses! Readers say they’re comfy to walk in, and the leather molds to your feet over time!
MZ Wallace Crosby Pippa Crossbody Bag
Nothing beats a crossbody bag for travel, and readers have been obsessing over MZ Wallace bags! Their top MZ Wallace pick in February is the Crosby Pippa quilted crossbody, which is sleek and pretty with a bit of edge. The interior has multiple compartments and pockets for killer organization, and while it’s compact and comfy to carry, it’ll easily house a day’s worth of travel essentials!
Here’s a round-up of what the readers have chosen as their all-time favorite cross body purses for travel!
