We would follow Robanne Schulman anywhere – to the beach (she’ll pack sensational sunglasses), overseas (she will find us a small but mighty suitcase), on a cruise with the family (watch her choose smart but sexy shoes and a sleek travel jacket with many pockets). The personal stylist from Buckhead says, “When traveling, I always use a carry on, because overpacking is just plain dumb.” That’s Robanne for you. She’s straight-talking, focused, a ton of fun and just a little sassy. She suggests you pack monochromatic pieces so all of your options can be paired with each other (blacks, whites, grays adding a pop of color with a handbag or jewelry). Robanne is a little obsessed with Pack-It Compression Cubes by Eagle Creek and uses the Briggs and Riley International expandable carry on. It fits both international planes and domestic planes. We asked her to show us how to travel wisely and she shopped right here in Brookhaven and Buckhead for some choice pieces for a show and tell, photographed at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel Atlanta.
