The Bermuda native who's on the road for more than half the year would know.
With the holidays (and snow) on the horizon, we're sure you're eager to jet off to a tropical location. Visions of palm trees and rum swizzles may be dancing around in your head, but before you get too ahead of yourself you've got to pack those bags—and if you're anything like me, you think packing is the worst. So I reached out to stylist Shiona Turini for help. The Bermuda-native spends more than 200 days of the year on the road, often on her hometown island, so it's safe to say she knows what to bring with her and what to leave behind. Ahead, seven surefire style secrets from the travel-pro.

In easy fabrics that can be dressed up and down, your staples do twice the work for your getaway look. Take this Johanna Ortiz top for example: it’s a grander take on a crop top that is as appropriate with a pair of trusty jeans as it is with a billowy pant for evening."
