Essential items you need to pack for a short business trip part 3

I prefer stiffer suitcases and a small carry-on suitcase is ideal.

Essential items you need for a short business trip, number 4: Suits

Next up is a suit. There's probably no other garment that is more business appropriate than a dark suit. If you have to pick one, I suggest to go with a navy worsted suit, ideally single-breasted with notch lapels, either one button or two buttons, side vents, maybe some cuffs at the bottom of pants so they pull down the pants and prevent any potential wrinkles. In terms of weight, I'd go for a three-season weight. If you want just one all-rounder, you can also opt for something with an open weave.

That way, you feel the breeze because sometimes when you're in an office environment, it can get quite hot but you know yourself if you're likely to overheat or if you feel cold all the time. If you are on a colder climate you can go with a flannel suit such as the charcoal or gray flannel suit. If you decide you want to bring a second suit you should go with a double-breasted suit simply to mix it up and have different degrees of formality. If you decide to bring one suit, I think the navy suit is ideal because you can wear just the jacket with a contrasting pair of pants.

Essential items you need for a short business trip, number 5: Accessories

When it comes to accessories I think a necktie is essential especially in a classic business environment. If you're a little more flamboyant or if you are maybe independent or in an area where dress codes are a little more relaxed, you can also go with a bow tie, otherwise, I suggest to stay with a classic necktie.
