Daniela Corte designs sleek pieces made right in a studio above her garden-level shop, and her leggings are an exception to the notion that they can't be worn as pants. As comfy as that American Apparel pair you have, these vegan leather-trimmed styles make sure you look polished, not sloppy. [Photo by Flagship Photo]

Trident Booksellers & Cafe

Since you're already shopping in the Back Bay, simply stop by Trident for some reading material on your flight, train, whatever. An award-winning magazine selection couples nicely with new and discounted books. Go ahead, mix Game of Thrones with Vogue. [Photo]

Barneys New York

You may not be a VIP, but why not let your passport look the part? Deck yours out in a high quality leather holder from Smythson, or Valextra. Added bonus: Colorful covers make it easy to spot on demand in your giant carry-on. [Photo by Flagship Photo]

This haven for all-natural beauty products is also a surprise destination for TSA-approved minis of its best selling products. No need to sacrifice the quality of your skincare while away—this majorly trumps the travel aisle at the drugstore. [Photo courtesy of Follain]

We say a long trip (especially one involving fluctuating temperatures) is a great reason to invest in a cool scarf. Check out some winners from labels like Leigh & Luca, We Are Owls, and Yigal Azrouel at this impeccably curated South End shop. You'll also find some clever knitwear on hand for even more snuggles.
