First off, there are the basics that should be able to fit into one carry-on sized bag. But keep in mind that some of these are low priority if they can be purchased at any local drugstore or supermarket. Therefore, if you’re running out of room, forgo some of these items.
-Toothbrush and toothpaste
-Shampoo, conditioner, body wash
-Blow dryer, curling iron, and any hair-related items that you use often
-Makeup, aftershave gel, face wash, and anything else you use for your face
Pack based on the 37-piece capsule wardrobe rule aside from underwear and socks. It’s enough to last you a season and is made up of really versatile pieces that you’ll certainly wear.
-10 tops. Depending on the season, you may want to add more short sleeve tops or more long sleeve tops. But always have at least 1 short sleeve top and 1 tank top. You can always layer clothing if needed.
-10 outerwear pieces. This includes a jacket, a rain jacket or trench coat, a warm coat (if it’s fall or winter), 1-2 sweaters, 4-5 cardigans, 2 suit jackets
-8 bottoms. For men, consider 3 suit pants, 1-2 pairs of khakis, 3-4 pairs of jeans. For women, consider 2 suit pants, 2-3 skirts, 3-4 pairs of jeans.
-6 pairs of shoes. 4 pairs for work, 2 pairs for outside of work.
These are going to be essential for work and/or your survival.
-Portable hard drive
-4-way power box
These are extra items that are important to bring and should be close with you during travel.
