Welcome to Travel Week! Fashion people are always on the move, and the industry has been venturing into tourism and hospitality more than ever. So with summer-getaway season in full swing, we’re bringing you five days of expert-led product recommendations, outfit ideas, wellness tips, packing advice and more. We hope you stay a while.

Let’s face it: At one time or another, we’ve all over- or under-packed for a trip. But many common packing blunders can be avoided by one category of product you may be overlooking, and that’s travel accessories that make up-and-going significantly easier. (And if you think the words “easy” and “travel” are antonyms, you’ll want to keep reading.)

To help pinpoint the most actually-helpful packing tools, Fashionista chatted with some of the most well-traveled names in fashion to spill their packing expertise. While everyone packs differently (for example, fashion and lifestyle writer Shelby Ying Hyde “finds success rolling my clothing and packing my unmentionables inside my socks.”), there are universally useful travel tools that make getting from point A to point B significantly more organized. And according Trendalytics, packing cubes, jewelry cases, toiletry bags and more are becoming increasingly popular; given that we’re in peak summer season, many of the best products are selling out and accruing waiting lists at alarming speeds. 

Shop the most helpful packing accessories with a fashion-forward spin, below. 

Best Packing Cubes

“Packing cubes are an absolute game-changer for an over-packer like me,” says freelancer writer and editor Bella Gerard. Per Trendalytics, she’s not alone: Searches for packing cubes are up 20% compared to this time last year, possibly thanks to TikTok’s obsession with the little helpers.

Gerard recommends Away’s The Insider Packing Cubes: “I always bring one empty cube to fill up with dirty clothes as I go, almost like a laundry hamper for travel.”
