    Actor Sharmiela Mandre lets us in on a few of her favourite travel essentials

    Whether it’s a beach holiday or a snow-filled escape, here are a few travel must-haves as recommended by this city-based actor

    Sunny Skies

    Tom Ford sunglasses are something of a necessity, even when not travelling. My personal favourite is the Ivana, which has an interesting, striking frame and comes in a lovely steel grey shade. Rs.25,656.At DLF Emporio, New Delhi. Details: 41033059


    Leather Speak

    Those off to a snowy getaway can pay Zara a visit. They have well-made jackets that are sure to keep you warm and also stylish. This retro suede jacket is a great example. Made with pig leather, it has an attractive set of buttons that add an elegant touch to the piece. Rs.7,990. At Orion Mall, Rajajinagar. Details: 22682040


    Night and Day

    A dress that works great for day and night is a must-have. One can never go wrong with a bodycon or a shift dress and this one from Herve Leger, with cutout details and a peplum waist can easily be transformed for an easy lunch date or a night on the town, with the right accessories. Rs.1,37,830. Details: herveleger.com


    Room for More
    The ideal travel bag would be a Louis Vuitton tote. It’s roomy, so you can dump all your travel essentials without worrying too much. The Pallas is especially interesting, functional and trendy all at the same time. Rs.1,63,829. At UB City, Vittal Mallya Road. Details: 42460000


    Flower Story

    I can’t do without my Gucci ballet flats. This one is quite special with a fun floral design. The leather sole and canvas ensure comfort and breathability. I also recommend Todds’ moccasins and Louboutins if you’re looking for something more dressy. Rs.39,148. Details: gucci.com


    Basic Black

    An LBD spells effortless elegance and I have a soft spot for Topshop. This dress from the brand has an adorable scalloped hemline and fun wrapped bodice. Just pair with killer heels and drop earrings and you’re ready to go. Rs.3,703 approximately. Details: topshop.com


    Colour Splash
    If you’re heading to a beach, I suggest you make a stop at the Shivan and Narresh store for some beach wear. This one shoulder trikini with a vibrant multi-hued print is really outstanding and will have you looking glamorous and keep you comfortable. Rs.26,636. At The Collonade, Old Airport Road. Details: 40981875


    Feel the beat
    One item of technology I think one should pack on a holiday is a Beats dock. I love listening to music whereever I go, be it on holiday or work. The Beats Pill character from Beats By Dre is fun and quirky and comes in colours like black, red and pink. Rs.9,135 (for the stand), Rs.18,000 (for the speaker). Details: amazon.in
