Another overnighter
Depending on your profession, there might be an occasion or two (or many) when you’ll be setting off from an assignment that requires some travelling. Keeping in mind this trip might last a night or two, it’s important to pack these specific items and take them with you.

What’s in the bag?

Before you put together the outfit, you need the carry-on luggage that does it all. Keyword: carry-on. You need a suitcase and a bag combo. You need a mobile carry-on that carries your clothes, shoes, toiletries and other necessary accessories. An effective luggage has the right sections for each of your items with a separate nylon sack for your shoes. The quality of the luggage is absolutely important, especially the way luggage, nowadays, are treated through one terminal to another. So if you spill a little extra cash, get yourself a scratch resistant exterior, light enough for you to carry or roll with ease. Great in grey

Great in grey

The most ideal suit to sport and pack into your carry-on luggage is a tailored one in a darker shade of grey. Remember, we’re still deep in the summer months, so bringing in the grey suit is a balanced choice. It’s a neutral colour so it’s professional enough for a conference room, and it plays quite well for a brunch or lunch meeting, releasing the stress of a stuffy situation. In other words, the medium grey suit is versatile, almost the perfect choice for a semi-formal outfit. No matter where you take it, you’ll be taken seriously and never mistaken for someone with a stiff upper lip. The unbeatable

The unbeatable

A crisp, white dress shirt is the epitome in formal wear. It’s the base item in which others have to work around with. While we’d prefer to have a completely new dress shirt that is reserved for this occasion, you can always use one of your white shirts that are fresh out of the dry cleaners. A short-spread collar, with a little stretch in the smooth cotton poplin fabric should be number one on the list. One of the more important things about a white dress shirt is it becomes a blank canvas. You can wear almost any tie with it and layer it with pretty much any suit. Go-to tie

Go-to tie

Light and with great effect is the solid colour silk-knit tie. There really isn’t too much to say about this selection of tie. Again, it goes with the entire versatile look. Whether it’s in navy or black, it looks classy and sharp, but not too serious either. A little extra

A little extra

This particular item will have to go a little beyond than usual. Plain and simple, choose your dressiest jeans in your closet. If you don’t have a dressy denim, not sure why you wouldn’t, get your butt out there and buy yourself the most sophisticated pair of jeans you can or as much as your budget allows you to. A very dark indigo coloured dressy jeans is the perfect pair for an evening out. Swap out your suit trousers with these, with your suit jacket intact, and you’ll go into the night in the classiest way possible. These shoes

These shoes are made for walkin’

A smart pair of loafers are going to be the bridge between your suit look and the semi-casual affair you’ll have outside of work hours. You can wear them with socks when you don your suave suit, and without socks when there is no actual business to be had. One of the other reasons for opting for a lace-less shoe is to make sure the comfort and ease remains while looking sophisticated. Most likely, you’ll have to be on the move and sneakers might not be the most appropriate choice where work is related. More support

More support

There’s always the addition of bits and bobs that round off the entire look. A solid, contrasting pocket square or a tie bar adds that extra “oomph”. Even better, they can be taken off or replaced easily so you won’t have to fuss about it during transitional periods throughout the day. Just make sure they are worthy in quality, as they can only add to your look rather than take away.
