Studs and stars accent these Jimmy Choo leather flats, a grown-up version of basic ballet slippers comfortable enough to withstand the rigours of lengthy power lunches and airport delays. $425; www.holtrenfrew.com.
Take a bite out of the winter chill with Virginia Johnson's shark-motif 100-per-cent merino wool shawl. It's warm enough to double as a blanket on long-haul flights. $207; www.virginiajohnson.com.
