The travel plans are all set and your bedroom looks like your closet just exploded, clothing, shoes and baubles are scattered about everywhere. And you, my friend, have a monumental, colossal decision to make as you try to determine what to cram into that suitcase?
You and I both know, this whole packing thing is not to be taken lightly! Forget an important piece of clothing and risk turning into Anxiety Woman on the plane, (able to cry or freak out at a moment’s notice) hey, it counts as a super power!
So what’s one of the most essential pieces that deserves a coveted spot in your limited luggage space? According to travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler, it’s the classic and versatile trench coat and we agree. Here are Three Reasons Trench Coats are THE Travel Essential.
Airports are often chilly and airplanes temps can dip below freezing (I exaggerate, but only a smidge). Trench coats are lightweight to carry, yet keep you cozy warm at the same time. It can be easily rolled up and placed inside your carry-on luggage, or used as a chic blanket once you’re safely tucked away in your seat.
If there’s one thing you can count on about the weather, it can be moody and go from sunny to rain, wind or snow flurries in the blink of an eye. The last thing I want to do when packing for a trip is to add an umbrella to my already bulging, probably over the weight limit bag. That’s where my hooded trench coat comes in to save the day and my hairdo by repelling water like a a freshly waxed car.
