Thanks to lowered airfare prices, traveling is now more accessible than ever. This year, whether you’re planning to strut the streets of Europe, bust out a new bikini in Boracay, or enjoy the sights in chilly Japan, you’re going to need key fashion pieces that are both functional and stylish. Here, we rounded up some key pieces you should invest in, because you will surely pack them in your suitcases in all of your travels:
Always pack a light casual dress that you can wear anywhere—from drinks on the beach to a casual brunch in the countryside.

For your travels to cooler countries, always make sure to pack a trench coat to keep you warm but still fasyon. Getting a classic, neutral-colored one is a wise move because you can use it with virtually any outfit.

A little black dress
This one's a staple in every woman's closet for a reason—you can use it for almost any occasion. Always pack a little black dress in your suitcase: Wear it on its own when seeing city sites during the summer or layer it with thermal wear for the winter.

Well-fitting denim jeans
Comfort is key with your travel wardrobe, so invest in a good pair of jeans that you can style multiple ways. Instead of tight skinny jeans, opt for a cropped, relaxed style for extra comfort.

What you wear under your clothes is just as important. Traveling means a lot of movement and walking, so you want to make sure you're well-supported and comfortable with what's underneath your clothes. Get light, seamless, and comfy underwear you can wear for hours on end without complaints.
TRY: Uniqlo Wireless Bras, 2nd Floor, Uptown Mall
You don't have to worry about fitting bulky winter coats in your suitcases, because there are lightweight (read: packing friendly) jackets that you can easily roll up and throw in your bags. Stay warm even during the winter with puffer jackets.
