Style Picks: How to pack for a casual business trip


By Maz Durbin

  • 1

Packing for any trip requires a little research and forward planning, even more so when your trip is a multi-purpose adventure.

In just over a weeks time I will be winging it over to Beverly Hills, Los Angeles to attend some shows for LA Fashion Week, attend various business meetings and hopefully fit in a little sight-seeing.

I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve had about a month to plan what to pack. Even with this amount of lead time and the numerous fashion resources I have at my disposal, planning a travelling wardrobe to accomodate everything I need to do in LA has been somewhat time-consuming.

For me, the key is to pack versatile pieces that can easily be mixed and matched from day to night if need be. I’ll also need to leave a teeny bit of room for any new acquisitions I may pick up while I’m there…you know how it is.

So here’s my ‘LA Edit’ of some of the items I’ll be taking with me.
