You’d rather be jetting off TO an island getaway, we know, but next time you’re catching a red-eye to a city you’ll experience via downtown meeting rooms, ease the pain with new double-tasking layering accessories that help simplify your already hectic travel itinerary, and are attractive enough to take with when you do get some PTO.
More than a novelty, the SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap purse is a low-key security measure, too: The stylish textured-design infinity scarf features a hidden zipper pocket in which you can stash valuables like your passport, credit cards, cash, and ID. Available in a range of flattering colors, the scarf keeps you warm in icy airports, planes, and conference centers, and necessities like cellphones, earbuds, and boarding passes easily accessible. Discreetly conceal and carry these items in your SHOLDIT to avoid pickpockets in strange cities, and keep hands free. $40+ at www.sholdit.com.
On longer flights, squeeze in some shut-eye swaddled in the super-soft Chilly Jilly Wrapper Blanket. Efficient travelers can save carry-on space and still be comfortable in the air with this generously proportioned wrap and blanket in one. Full-sized (37 by 60 inches) when in use, the lightweight, versatile—and machine-washable—Wrapper Blanket folds to fit, at the ready, inside a handbag, and comes with its own compact silk travel bag. $45 at www.chillyjilly.com.
