Women’s Business Clothes for Travel

Depending on your job, you might be bringing along heels for the business portion of your trip. Pack a pair (or two) of comfortable flats, which can easily fit in your purse or work bag, yet maintain your stylish look. This will allow you to quickly change into shoes that are more conducive to sightseeing.
Here’s a tip: be sure to break in your flats at home–no one wants blisters while traveling.

J.Crew Cecile Blazer | Sizes XXXS-3X
During business travel, it’s likely that you’ll need to follow a corporate dress code during your meetings. Pack blazers in neutral colors, which will allow you to mix and match as needed. A blazer and jeans is just as stylish as a blazer and a skirt!
The blazer can also act as another layer while sightseeing, especially in cooler weather.

Quince Silk Washable Shirt | Sizes XS-XL
“Breathable” can mean different things to different people. I personally like to wear flowy tops that keep me feeling cool and fresh.
Whether it’s presenting at a conference or walking around a bustling city, you’ll want a shirt that offers a bit of cooling. Choose to bring along tops that are made of a light or breathable material. You can always add a layer if needed, but you can only take so many layers off! Learn more in my guide.
Don’t forget to wear the right undergarments underneath your work clothes. Find out more!
Business trips usually include long days, and if you add in some sightseeing, that can mean a lot of time in the same outfit.
If you’re planning on exploring your destination in your business clothes, pack a few pairs of pants that have a bit of stretch. They will be more comfortable while sitting and walking around town.

A Stylish Backpack
While many may choose to bring their work bag on a business trip (especially if you’re toting along your laptop), throw in a stylish backpack as well. A backpack allows you to balance weight on both shoulders instead of one while sightseeing. Add a packing cube to your backpack to keep your belongings organized till you need them. You’ll be able to visit more locations and move more quickly!

When it comes to quickly transitioning from business to sightseeing, accessories can go a long way! Throw in a shawl or scarf to shield you from the cold, sun, or wind.
Add a statement necklace if you’ll be enjoying dinner at a fun restaurant and include a different top to go with your blazer. The possibilities are endless, yet accessories won’t take up too much space in your luggage!
