For most guys, attending a business conference in sunny Orlando can be as exhilarating as hitting the lotto, and to others, a bout of anxiety as they try to pack the right clothing for another trip. What if I told you that, planning a business casual wardrobe isn’t as scary as it sounds.
As I a typically travel with “carry on” luggage, packing for style and convenience can be simple. Don’t just throw items from your closet into your suitcase, and think that you will have enough clothes to wear. If your meetings don’t count on you wearing a suit, make sure you bring a sportcoat that can be worn with several different slacks. If you can pack grey, navy, black, or khaki trousers, and they work alongside your sportcoat, you’ve picked a winner.
Make life simple when traveling for work, bring solid color shirts that pair back to your sportcoat. This allows you to transition from meetings during the day, to dinner / after hour events. When it comes to your shoes, brown or black are your safest choices, you decide which you want to pack, and which you want to wear on the plane. This ensures that during your trip, you have options.
Don’t make what you wear on your business trip, overshadow why you are going. Have fun with your co-workers, learn how to be better at your business, and be confident in your wardrobe choices by keeping it simple.
