#1: Pants from Matter Prints

Tribal-esque prints feature in the brand’s latest collection.

“They’re stylish, comfortable, come in a variety of colours and prints, can be dressed up or down and most importantly, they’re socially conscious clothing that supports Indian artisans. They also look good crumpled, which makes for fuss-free packing.”

#2: Gold jewellery

A bespoke creation by local jewellery brand Marilyn Tan, this cuff also features Swarovski Elements crystals.

“They take an outfit from basic to chic, instantly. I always pack at least one necklace and one cuff. My latest purchase is a gold-plated bronze cuff from Marilyn Tan.”

#3: Hat of Cain panama hat

Every hat from Hat Of Cain is sourced directly from Ecuador.

“It keeps me cool and hides bad hair days – of which I have many. A white Panama also makes most casual get-ups look slightly more elegant.”

#4: Mulberry’s Lily cross-body bag

“I like to travel light when I’m out and about so this little bag keeps my essentials within easy reach. The chain strap can also be shortened as and when I want to sling it over my shoulder as a handbag.”

#5: White leather sneakers

“I live in sneakers and my white leather Converse sneakers are my constant travel companion. They match with everything and they can be easily cleaned.”

#6: Fresh Rose Floral Toner

Fresh Rose Floral Toner, $63

“It’s great for a quick, refreshing spritz especially after long flights.”

#7: DrX Tinted Sunscreen

“This is the best sunblock I’ve come across (and I’ve tried a lot!), especially for people with tanned skin. It’s not too thick and greasy and provides great, long lasting coverage. I’ve stopped using foundation or concealer and now use this in place as a base for my daytime makeup.”

#8: Kindle Paperwhite

“I load it up with the newest NY Times Best Seller list before each trip and spend my time on the plane and in transit catching up on my reading. It’s tiny and light and the adjustable backlit is much easier on the eyes than an iPad in my opinion.”

#9: Nike Tech fleece cape

“I get really cold on the plane and this jacket feels like a soft blanket. The new wider hood design also keeps my head feeling nice and snug.”

#10: A white dress

Cotton dress, $209, In Good Company

“My travel wardrobe is usually monochromatic to make for easier packing and mixing and matching. I always make sure I have at least one white dress that can be worn casually in the day or dressed up with jewellery and a pair of heels at night. Current favourites include pieces from In Good Company and Bimba Y Lola.”
