Recently, we caught up with designer, Project Runway alum, and travel enthusiast Emilio Sosa. Dressed in versatile tailored suiting from H&M with a knit tie, vintage tie clip and Italian footwear he explains the fundamentals for traveling like a pro and looking good while you're at it.
"The easiest thing when you travel for a guy when you travel is the suit. It's your anchor; you can take it to a business meeting, you can break it up and wear the pants with a shirt and a sweater, or you can wear jeans with a sweater and the suit jacket. It's about versatility - taking pieces that travel well like knit pieces because they don't wrinkle."
"For women, the same thing it's about having pieces that can go from day to evening. If you have a little dress, you can take it and wear it with a jacket, if you're going out you can wear it with a pair of pumps and add a statement necklace or add a belt to it. It's about having a foundation and building upon it."
