my spring wardrobe planning themes of sportif/comfy/simple pretty much apply to packing for Japan. the travel m.o.: bring only tried-and-true favorites that are functional, comfortable, and stylish.
drapey cardigan/hoodie (more colors here) // the elegant hoodie that's super cozy for airport to hotel and everywhere in between.
oversize cashmere silk scarf // love love love how well this drapes/wraps. surprisingly cozy but still light.
favorite utility jacket // i'm so glad i bought this rag & bone jacket five years ago; it has become one of my most-worn pieces. so happy they reissued it this season!
black high rise skinny jeans // comfy enough for day-to-night.
slouchy Yohji-esque sweatpants // (i got them in S) sometimes H&M makes the best stylish basics. also, i don't believe one should spend a lot on sweatpants!
ryan tanks // these have completely replaced my worn-out and stretched-out old j.crew tanks. perfectly slouchy (i have these in the XS) and washes well (hang dry). worth stocking up in multiples!
minimalist sneakers // i always pack a pair of sneakers when i travel; these are stylish, cushiony, and will do double-duty as touristing shoes + hotel gym trainers.
dicker boots // still my favorite ankle boots.
toms slipons // the perfect easy to slip on/off chic flats.
& other accessories:
KW sunglasses //
CdG travel wallet //
trio crossbody bag //
trusty Balenciaga city bag //
what are your travel wardrobe essentials? are you planning any fun trips this year?
