Are you in the midst of planning your next trip? Or simply daydreaming of your next bucket list destination? Then don't forget the details!

Traveling with elegance is centered on the details. Elegant women know that they need to be selective of what they pack, so they only bring the best with them. They are mindful of both style and practicality, function and convenience, and choose items that will help elevate their experience. Having the right set of essentials contributes to a more stress-free and enjoyable trip- a luxury worth the extra preparation.

If you wish to improve your traveling experience for your next trip, then you need a list of reliable traveling essentials.

Keep reading to learn the 15 travel essentials elegant women never forget:

1. Quality Luggage Set

Elegant women know that investing in a quality luggage set is imperative to a lifetime of traveling. It's important to find luggage that is durable, stylish, and secure so you can spend less time worrying about your baggage and more time enjoying your tip.

2. Reading Materials

If you prefer not to be glued to your screen throughout the trip but need something to occupy your time, then consider bringing along reading materials like a book or magazine to keep yourself entertained for a while. Many airport shops offer a variety of books for sale, including word searches, fictional stories, autobiographies, and more, that provide a generous amount of content that will keep you busy.

3. Versatile Clothing Pieces

Elegant women maximize luggage space by curating a capsule wardrobe specifically for their destination. They take into consideration the weather, season, and activities they'll have to select pieces that can be mix-and-matched for effortless looks that always looks pulled together. From experience, they know not to overpack, but save an extra spot in their suitcase for a swimsuit or jacket just in case plans do change.

4. Comfortable Shoes

Elegant women know the value of quality footwear. A pair of comfortable shoes are worth investing in, especially while traveling abroad. Many places involve a lot of walking, and you don't want to be feeling uncomfortable (or worse, in pain) throughout your trip.

In addition to a pair of walking shoes or sneakers, a pair of comfortable yet stylish shoes, such as classic ballet flats, loafers, or low-heeled sandals, are fantastic options because they can be worn for both casual and dressier occasions.

5. Packing Organizers

Keeping your belongings tidy during travel can be a challenge if you are packing heavily. Elegant women always organize their luggage bags to maximize space and prevent damage to their items. To prevent wrinkles in clothes or potential stains from leaking containers, it's best to use packing organizers with a water-resistant exterior and a solid structure that will fit nicely into the shape of the suitcase. These organizers make it easy to find things without sifting through each bag, and are especially useful in ensuring you don't forget anything when packing for the trip back home.

6. Travel-Friendly Bags

Elegant women always bring with them bags that are easy to store and versatile enough to use for multiple occasions. A chic tote bag or crossbody are must-have items because they are spacious, convenient, and stylish. They can be taken from day to night and keep all of your essentials secure while walking around and exploring your destination.

NOTIQ offers a variety of travel tote bags and crossbody phone bags that make perfect companions for every trip.

7. Travel-Sized Toiletries

Elegant women never forget their skincare and beauty essentials during a trip. However, traveling with full-sized products isn't ideal when you have limited storage. Aside from the extra space that large bottles and containers take up in your suitcase, these products may have a higher chance of leaking or exploding during travel with changing temperatures and pressure. Take the extra step in transferring your products into travel-friendly containers or purchasing travel-sized versions of your favorites to prevent these issues (not to mention that the mini versions are so cute and fun to use!)

8. Portable Steamer or Iron

Have you ever wondered how certain women always look so put-together in their photos? They pay attention to the details. If you are hoping to take pictures during your trip and wish to look elevated and chic, then don't forget to pack a portable steamer or iron. A simple travel-friendly steamer does wonders in keeping clothing looking crisp and wrinkle-free. Linen, a very popular fabric choice for warmer climates, gets especially wrinkly and needs steaming or ironing before each wear.

Tip: If you don't own a steamer you could try asking your hotel or host if there is one you could borrow during your stay.

9. Travel Planner & Organizer

Elegant women know how important it is to stay organized while traveling. They always carry with them a stylish travel planner and organizer to keep passports, tickets, and important papers orderly and easily accessible. Staying organized and being prepared prevents mishaps that can lead to stress, and makes for an overall more enjoyable trip.

NOTIQ offers a variety of travel-friendly planners and organizers, zipped wallets and wristlets, and more for an elegant traveling experience.

10. Portable Charger

Don't you hate it when your phone or laptop dies at the worst possible time? Never miss out again due to low battery. Invest in a portable charger to ensure that your electronic devices stay powered throughout your trip. From taking photos to translating a foreign language, using GPS navigation, and more, having access to a charged computer or smartphone is a necessity while being away from home.

*While this is especially important for those who are planning to do work while traveling, it's also a good habit to always have a working cell phone in the event of emergencies!

11. Reusable Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is crucial, especially while traveling. From long trips to dry airplane air, it's important to drink as often as you can. Having a reusable water bottle allows you to have easy access to water at all times, ensuring you remain hydrated throughout your journey. Not to mention that it is more environmentally friendly and more cost effective than purchasing single-use bottles.

In addition, some destinations may have limited reliable, clean water. Having a reusable water bottle with a built-in filter can provide you with a safer and more convenient way to ensure the water you drink is safe.

NOTIQ offers a stunning reusable water bottle that inspires you with every sip through powerful affirmations.

12. Garment Bag

Elegant women take careful consideration when packing their clothes. In addition to packing organizers, they take the time to place delicate and special pieces in garment bags to prevent damage and wrinkling during travel. This also makes it easier to plan out specific outfits and keep them away from separate items.

Tip: If you are staying at a hotel, many often provide one with your closet or wardrobe in addition to hangers. Don't be afraid to use them.

13. Supplements

It's important to keep up with your health and wellness, as traveling can take a huge toll on your body. Always bring with you your medication and supplements to ensure that you are getting the proper nutrients and care regardless of what you eat or do throughout the trip. 

It's always recommended that you speak to your doctor before taking anything, but here is a list of some recommended supplements while traveling: Vitamin C, Electrolytes, Probiotics, and Melatonin (especially when experiencing a significant time change.)

*Not medical advice. Be sure to discuss with your health provider on what is best for you.

14. Travel Jewelry Case

Elegant women always take extra precautions in organizing and safeguarding their trinkets while traveling. Packing a travel jewelry case is perfect if you plan on bringing multiple pieces, especially fine jewels and soft metals that may potentially get broken or scratched when packed with other items. There are many options available on the market, but its good to find one that is portable, durable, and versatile for your needs.

15. Power Adapters

Power adapters are incredibly useful while traveling because they allow you to use your electronic devices in other countries and regions with different types of electrical outlets and voltage standards. For example, if you're traveling to Europe and want to use a hair curler designed for American outlets, then you will most likely need an adapter in order to style your hair every day. Power adapters help you physically connect your devices to these outlets and ensure they receive the correct voltage and frequency, preventing damage and ensuring safe operation. This is an absolute necessity if you are someone who travels often to outside nations.

BONUS: Positive Attitude!

Elegant women know that the biggest key to a successful, enjoyable trip is having a positive mindset. More than planning and packing before the trip, a positive attitude is the best thing to have while traveling. No matter what gets thrown your way, having a good outlook on everything will help you to learn, get through challenges, and be open to greater experiences.

Overall, the three main things to consider while traveling with elegance are style, convenience, and function. Don't forget to tailor your packing list to your specific destination, climate, and activities. Pack efficiently and focus on versatile items that can serve multiple purposes to make your trip smoother and more enjoyable, and take your time during the planning process so you don't miss any of the important details. At the end of the day, remember to have fun and make lasting memories that you'll forever take with you beyond the trip.
