Packing for a Business Trip

Packing for Business Travel: Dress

Q: I take a lot of business trips. what pieces travel best? —Janet Dewitt, Highland Park, Tex.

A: For a classic shape, we love the wrinkle-free shirtdress (pictured; $330) from Elizabeth Roberts—the fabric is nylon, so it’s lightweight, dries fast, and is virtually indestructible. Knits tend to stay wrinkle-free— this knee-length skirt ($445) and top ($195) by Wolford will take you through all manner of meetings. A sheath is fitting for day-to-night negotiations; roll up the cherry-red stretch version ($415) from David Meister for extra packability.

Plus: Our Secret Weapons

Roll-on fragrances are ideal for your carry-on. Try Elizabeth and James’s Nirvana Black ($22), with sandalwood and vanilla; Kate Spade’s citrusy Live Colorfully Eau de Parfum ($24); fresh and woody Marchesa Parfum D’Extase ($25); or Tory Burch’s namesake scent ($25).

The Esteam by Jiffy Steamer ($75) is the T+L style department’s de-wrinkler of choice. The best part? It heats up in less than two minutes.
