The weather’s cold, and you’ve got to go on a business trip. A SERIOUS trip…Start with a comfort garment – the favorite cardigan will make you happy, and will suggest your color scheme too! Choose a couple of outfits that ensure that you bring all of the pieces of your black suit, add a couple of jazzy red garments, and you’re all set for business events. One simple dress, and everything will fit in a carry-on bag.
A black winter coat, and some gloves, will be needed here, of course:
And you know they’re going to take you out to dinner…
A couple more outfits – one that’s office worthy (and could easily
support a cardigan or your suit jacket), and a more casual option for
evenings, weekends, or your return trip.
Love this. I wonder sometimes about the winter coat- just a cover up, or part of the ensemble?
AWESOME AS ALWAYS -LOVE YOUR PACKING IDEA…!!!
Woke up this morning wondering what to wear on this cold gray morning… Black and maroon it is! You put some beautiful outfits together here for my dream life. But I can always copy the colors. :)
Fabulous, and appropriate. Great ideas for winter.
I've been staring at this for far too long. Need to get to work!
Great options here. I love this set!
This is a spectacular group of colors….burgundy, pink and black. I'm really feeling them. I'd love to see a travel set that's a little more casual….I'm intrigued.

Bravo! Love the colors on a very cold brisk morning.
Twelve pieces into sixteen outfits, whereas if I packed my "old" way, I would need a large suitcase for all of my unique ensembles. Love this color grouping, although I would swap navy for the black.
I love the outfit suggestions but I'd probably swap the maroon for a deep purple as that is more my color.
And I have no excuse not to pack well on upcoming trips! Thanks so much!

WOW! Janice, this ensemble is brilliant. You are amazingly talented. I very much wish I could wear these colors (maroon and pink). Sadly, they make my skin look pale and highlight the circles under my eyes. If not, I'd embrace what you pulled together. It is remarkable.

Lovely capsule wardrobe – though I do spy 2 different pairs of black pants in the selections and only one in the overall view ;)

Excellent – I'm going to fix it right now! Thanks so much for letting me know.
Love it! I am all over those colours and there are some lovely items your selection too.

These are my colors AND my office is more on the formal side, just like the outfits shown! Thanks for a great combination
So rich looking, I love this.
Carol Ann says
Great ideas! Thank you, Janice for doing this.
Would all this actually fit in a carry on bag?
Janice Riggs says
I think so – once you pulled out the garments that are to be worn in-transit. I've packed at least this much for a number of trips in my carry-on hard sided Tumi bag. I carry my toiletries in my briefcase though, so that helps a lot!
