A light scarf, like this one from White + Warren, is one of the most versatile items you can pack while traveling. Not only does the fabric serve as a fashion accessory, but it can also function as a blanket on a chilly plane. Tired? Bundle it up to use as a pillow. Heading into a religious site? Drape it over your shoulders, or use it to cover your head for modesty.

Despite how chic Duchess Kate looks stepping off the plane in stilettos, don't make security any more complicated than it needs to be. Head to the airport in a pair of low-heeled booties to breeze on through.

An international flight is not the time to test out your new statement necklace. Not only will it ensure security is a hassle, but depending on your destination, it could also make you a target for thieves. That said, there's no need to completely forgo the sparkle. Opt for smaller earrings like these periwinkle studs by Mignonne Gavigan, and minimal rings.

The airport is hardly the place for your shortest skirts and deepest v-neck Ts. We're not saying you have to wear a turtleneck, but just give your look a once-over before you walk out the door.
