Women’s clothing

When it comes to travel-friendly clothing, comfort and versatility are key; however, that doesn’t mean you have to forgo style altogether. Ideal for year-round wear, the basics below—many of which are among the department store’s bestsellers—offer the perfect combination of all three, including Spanx’s fan-favorite and buttery soft AirEssentials wide-leg pants (which, as you can guess by their name, are ideal for long-haul flights) as well as stretchy, moisture-wicking leggings that can be worn in the gym and while sightseeing. We’ve also highlighted some of our favorite tops, including an oh-so-cozy crewneck and a timeless T-shirt for layering under your favorite cardigan or jacket on chilly planes.

Comfortable shoes

Let’s face it: You can never have too many pairs of comfy shoes—especially if you’re a frequent traveler. Fortunately, Nordstrom offers a wide variety of styles for every season (think: shearling-lined slippers in the winter, open-toed sandals in the summer, and so on). Consider snagging a pair of waterproof boots for rainy weather, slip-on sneakers for everyday wear, or running shoes that double as kicks for your next hiking adventure. Ahead, our favorite footwear from Traveler-loved brands like Ugg, Birkenstock, Hoka, and more.

Travel accessories

Whether you’re heading halfway across the globe or just a few states away, top travel accessories can improve each and every trip you take. Options abound, from compression socks to help reduce swelling and boost circulation while in flight to handy Dopp kits and space-saving folding jewelry cases. To make the journey to your giftee’s destination all the more enjoyable, stock up on accessories like memory foam travel pillows or a sumptuous silk set—complete with a sleep mask, pillow case, and scrunchies—from Blissy so they can catch up on z’s from (almost) anywhere.

Splurging on a frequent flier? Consider upgrading their luggage. Nordstrom offers a robust selection of suitcases (carry-ons and checked options included), weekenders, and more travel bags from popular brands like Béis, Monos, and Tumi. If they often take longer trips, the bigger the suitcase, the better—and you can’t go wrong with Rimowa’s 30-inch large check-in option. Alternatively, opt for an expandable suitcase, such as Briggs and Riley’s Baseline 17-inch expandable cabin bag.

Béis The Weekender Bag

This weekender was Béis’s first product, and a positive indicator of where the luggage and travel accessory brand was headed. It is thoughtfully designed, from the overall look to the smart features: A trolley sleeve on the bag has a zipper on the bottom, so you can use it as an exterior pocket when you’re not traveling with a suitcase, or unzip it to secure the weekender to your luggage when needed. A second exterior pocket on the opposite side of the bag is large enough for a phone and other small essentials. It was recommended by senior commerce editor Madison Flager, who especially loves the bag’s separate bottom compartment, which can be used to keep shoes or dirty or wet clothes separate.

The best handbags, in our opinion, combine fashion and functionality, which is why we scoured Nordstrom’s purse section to narrow down some of the most versatile picks. In addition to roomy totes from fan-favorite brands like Longchamp, we also included a handful of convertible bags, which, as the name suggests, mean they can be carried at least two ways (think: a crossbody bag that converts into a clutch or a backpack that doubles as a tote). There’s also a water-resistant belt bag from famed Swedish outdoor brand Fjällräven that’s offers convenient hands-free storage.
