Juliet clocks an amaz­ing av­er­age of 15 busi­ness trips a year. “Most of them are short – about two or three days – so I only pack a carry-on bag,” she says. “The key is to keep your bag light so that it never slows you down.” For more of her ex­cel­lent ad­vice, read on.

My typ­i­cal work uni­form is shift dresses be­cause I find them more ver­sa­tile and com­fort­able than trousers. I usu­ally pack two dresses and a cou­ple of lightweight cardi­gans.
