One workaround is to choose accessories that can work with everything and take your outfits from ho-hum to so glam in a snap. Below, five pieces every globetrotter should have in her suitcase:
1. A snazzy hat
Make a statement while staying protected from UV rays by donning some chic headgear. A sun hat is both elegant and functional for a day at the beach (look for one that you can fold and stash in your suitcase without losing its shape), while a baseball cap adds a cool streetwear spin to your look on long city walks.
2. Classic sunglasses
It just doesn’t feel right to go on a trip without a good pair of sunnies. It can elevate your look in a snap, shield your eyes from the sun, and make you look effortlessly cool. Feel free to go for playful shapes, colors, and styles that lend your outfit an ~extra~ touch. Sunglasses are also lifesavers for those days when you just can't be bothered to put on makeup!
3. A large, colorful scarf
When packing accessories for your trip, choose pieces that are versatile and multifunctional. A lightweight, colorful scarf can be styled in many ways, and can even be worn as a top, a skirt, or a head cover in a cinch. Come evening, unfurl it to protect yourself against the cold.
4. A sturdy but chic watch
Choose a simple, minimalist watch that is comfortable to wear and matches any and every outfit. Traveling means you get to go on (sometimes unplanned) adventures, and anything too loud and flashy might attract the wrong kind of attention.

5. A stylish passport cover
Okay, so you don’t really wear this one, but it's always a good idea to keep your passport protected, especially when you're abroad. Make sure to choose a cover in a durable material to keep your passport safe from accidental spills, and that come with at least one pocket or inside sleeve to stash your immigration forms, boarding passes, and other important documents.
