What works for jaunts to the Hamptons is all wrong for Paris. Pack light, bright and neutral for tropical trysts and stick to black, gray and a shot of white for urban escapes. The must-haves? Oversized sunglasses, a great watch, a hat for protection, a light-weight trench-coat for layering, flats and a coordinated carry-on. Gucci and LV are classic travel luggage but this summer’s stylish travel comes in white-textured leather or canvas.
