What to pack for a 5-day business trip?

I usually over-pack each time I travel. I know I should know better – and I’ve become a better and more efficient packer over the years… but still… There are always those few pieces I never wear!

Putting my past packing experiences into practice, I created the most stylish and efficient packing list for a 5-day business trip, assuming you are traveling for a conference (domestic or overseas) where you stay most of the time in the conference center during the day and have dinners/functions to attend in the evening with not much time to change in-between.

All items I picked can be combined with each other and the styling combinations are endless.

What to pack?

  • One business pantsuit in a neutral color
  • One matching skirt
  • One matching dress if possible – if the matching dress is not available, choose another one in a neutral color and style that will go with the blazer and cardigan
  • One pair of dark washed, mid rise, straight-leg (or bootcut) jeans
  • One casual jacket/blazer
  • One cardigan with a pattern/color
  • One cape/wrap/pashmina
  • Seven tops (blouse, knit top, sweater, satin/silk tops)
  • One pair of flats
  • One or two pair of neutral pumps (different heights)
  • One pair of heels in a color
  • One every-day tote
  • One cross-body purse
  • One evening clutch
  • Two statement necklaces with matching earrings
  • One neutral daytime necklace with matching earrings
  • Three scarfs
