Going somewhere for the holidays? Your flights been booked and your suitcase is packed, so now it’s time to put together your travel outfits! With long flights or road trips, comfort is key, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave you style packed in your suitcase.
To help you start your holiday off right by right by breezing through the airport or train station with effortless style, I have 6 fashionable essentials that I like to wear while traveling—bonus is that they also work when you’re relaxing at your destination!
1. Comfy Knit
The most versatile top to wear on a plane? A classic long-sleeve knit. I like to go for a neutral color or a subtle stripe that I can pair with jeans or leggings (which let’s be real, you know I’ll be in leggings!).
2. Blanket Scarf
I’m a big fan of blanket or oversized scarves when I’m traveling. They’re lightweight enough that I can shove it in my carry-one bag when I don't need it, but it also comes in clutch on a cold flight or train. They also make great accessories when you reach your destination! I love this scarf from Spring Fever. It's big but not too big, and comes in so many color combos!
Comfort is key! Especially if you have long layovers. A pair of stretchy leggings are perfect for the plane, and since athleisure is so on trend right now, you won’t look like a slob wearing your leggings in public. To help elevate your look from basic black, go for a pair that has cool mesh cut-outs or moto-style details. I really like these mesh cut-out leggings from Mono B, and they come in so many different colors & styles for a great price!
If you’re like me, you’re almost always cold when you travel. A relaxed fit cardigan is the way to go, especially if you’re traveling south and don’t want to waste valuable packing space with a bulky jacket. I'm a big fan of this oversized chunky-knit cardigan, but just a warning, the sleeves aren't made for my fellow tall girls unless you're looking for a 3/4 length sleeve!
There is nothing worse than racing through an unfamiliar airport trying to make your connecting flight, unless you're trying to do it in heels. Chic sneakers are a trend that doesn't seem to be slowing down, so take advantage of this and wear them while you travel! I love this pair from Reebok because they slip on, making sure you waste no time in the security line, and the neutral color ensures that they go with anything.
If you have a short flight or drive and want to look a little more polished when you arrive at your destination, a pair of stretchy skinny jeans is the perfect go-to. Wear them with a chic sweater and pointed-toe flats and you’ll be comfy and stylish with minimal effort!
I hope this list of essentials gives you the inspiration you need to put together a few chic yet comfortable looks for your long day of commuting!
Happy holidays and save travels!
