Travelling may not be as glorious as it was a decade ago but you can still do your best to travel in style and make the most of your trip whether it’s for business or pleasure. We’ve put together a list of tips and accessories that will help you to travel like a gentleman even with that sweaty guy in a tank top sitting beside you and the crying child kicking your chair from behind.
Your luggage is going to be key to travelling in style but also staying functional, we’d recommend polycarbonate or aluminium cases as they are made from the toughest stuff out there but can also look great. Antler is our favourite supplier’s cabin luggage for their strong polycarbonate frame with subtle design.
Now that you have your luggage organised it’s time to prepare your suitcase for your trip.
- Roll small items like your t-shirts and nightwear
- Pack shirts in bundles
- Bring your lightest shoes
- Fold sweaters the length of your luggage to avoid bundle
Dress up! This is not just to show off your personal style, but just as importantly it may increase your chances of a free upgrade. Be mindful that comfort is still important as that free upgrade isn’t worth being uncomfortable for long haul flight.
While travelling you have to be sensible with your dress accessories as the more metal you have to take off the longer you’re going to be stuck in security. So be smart and wear only the necessities.
