Our Favorite Luxury Travel Must-Haves

Travel can be adventurous, romantic, or energizing. You board your aircraft with excitement, land at your destination with ease, and spend a week floating about your resort town.

However, we all know there are a handful of travel to-dos that are not so glamorous. And for those, we have a bag filled with luxury travel must-haves to make the trip more comfortable.

Here are our favorite luxury travel must-haves for fashion, beauty, and technology.

A Perfect Day Bag

Whether your travels include adventure, lounging, or a bit of both, you’ll need a durable day bag in which to carry your belongings. Oversized totes, crossbody bags, and small backpacks are perfect for traveling; each is practical and fashionable.  

We love L’fina bags, made in Basalt, Colo. These bags feature a cork exterior, which makes them stain resistant and easy to clean, perfect for any spontaneous summer outing.


A Hat (or two)

Hats are both stylish and practical. They complete a summer look, hide helmet hair, and protect your face from harsh UV rays. Consider packing a casual baseball style hat for outdoor activities and a sun hat to create an effortlessly fashionable look.

Check out Susan Carrolan hats, locally made in Aspen, Colo. The collection includes Panama hats, straw visors, cowboy hats, and sun hats, all suitable for an afternoon on Aspen Mountain or evening walk about town.

Susan Carrolan Hats, $160++



A quality scarf is a perfect accessory because it can add to an ensemble and keep you warm in air conditioned airports.

Mountain towns can be chilly at night. If you need a luxurious cashmere scarf to keep you warm, browse White + Warren, known for their superior collection of travel wraps, scarves, and more.

White + Warren Scarves, $258+

Noise-Canceling, Wireless Headphones

High-quality noise-canceling headphones allow you to enjoy your music or movie selection without interruption or discomfort. We love the comfort and technology Bose headphones offer and the fact that they look fashionable during use. The latest models also come with Google Assistant.

Hydrating Face Mist

Airplane cabins are dry and can do severe damage to your skin. If you’re flying for more than two hours, consider taking a hydrating face mist and using it every hour on your flight.

Our staff pick is Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist which can be used under or over makeup. Arrive at your destination fresh and glowing with this luxury travel must-have.

Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist, Available in 2.7 oz, $17.

Hand Cream

Throughout your travels and especially in airports, frequent hand washing leads to dry skin, especially during the winter. Keep a travel-sized hand cream in your bag so you can replenish your skin and avoid cracked cuticles.
