An over-the-shoulder bag by Peter Kent.

Better than a briefcase
With airlines limiting travellers to a single carry-on, your choice should be stylish and useful. Crafted by Peter Kent, this over-the-shoulder bag is large enough to fit a small laptop, some files and a cellphone, and comes with a silver-clipped leather strap to secure your keys. $750; www.peterkentcanada.com.



Slip these on
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.

It's a wrap
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.

Keep dry
Rain jackets don't have to be plain and dowdy: Stay dry in Burberry's double-breasted soft nylon trench, which comes with a smart belt and contemporary tonal check pattern. $850; www.holtrenfrew.com.



Dress it up
Stella and Dot's Jenna Pearl and Ribbon necklace adds an elegant twist to the classic bauble by weaving a hand-knotted ribbon into its string of ivory faux pearls. Available online or through independent Stella and Dot vendors across Canada. $56; www.stelladot.com.
