There are quite a few nuances to consider when packing for a business trip, from the number of events you'll attend to their different dress codes (professionalism often extends to events outside of business hours).

Then, you need to find the right suitcase - and fit everything so that your work clothes don't get too wrinkled while traveling to your destination. Harpersbazaar.com offers tips to make packing for a business trip easier.

Start with the right suitcase

Choose a suitcase with compartments for packing your clothes so that they don't get wrinkled during the flight. Additionally, it's better to pack everything compactly in your carry-on luggage to avoid taking risks with additional luggage. Losing it at the airport can sometimes ruin all your plans.

Think about jewelry to enhance your outfit

Jewelry is indispensable when traveling because it's lightweight, easy to pack, and can instantly update any outfit, according to experts.

"My number one piece of advice? Make sure your jewelry is stored in your carry-on bag. But even if the airline loses your case, you can always buy accessories!" says Marisa Gordern, founder of the Missoma jewelry brand.

Pack a versatile capsule wardrobe

"When I travel for work, I never check my luggage because I'm always afraid it will get lost. I always try to create a smart wardrobe that will last for a few days, with items that are versatile enough to adapt to different occasions," said Meryl Cheech, founder of the clothing brand Sessei.

According to her, she usually avoids clothes that are too "recognizable" and instead chooses minimalist pieces that can be complemented with bright jewelry.

Another tip is to always include a classic shirt in your business trip outfit. It will definitely be the perfect solution for many situations.

Stock up on travel miniatures

"I always prefer to use products that I know and trust, whether I'm out and about or at home, and cosmetic miniatures are the perfect solution for this. So many brands offer mini versions of your favorite iconic products, so you don't have to compromise on your beauty," said Lianne Zaman, Beauty Specialist at Boots.

Do not forget to think about your well-being

If you practice yoga, you should consider a mini mat to take with you. The same goes for other lightweight and compact equipment for your favorite sports or any other activity.
