I love travelling, ever since I was a baby I used to go with my parents and my grandparents everywhere. My first plane flight was at 9 months old, smiling all around and cheering to the crowd of stewardesses delighted of finally finding a non-crying baby.
I’m sharing with you some lessons learnt – in time and the hard way – about dressing up when travelling:
Wear comfortable clothes, shoes, accessories. Nothing beats comfort when on a few (to longer) hours journey. It really doesn’t matter so awesome you look in a tight skirt,a pair of stretchy jeans or super high heels, your body will hate you after a while and it will not be afraid to show you.
Comfortable doesn’t mean shabby or untidy. Try to wear clothes from fabrics that don’t wrinkle, so that you don’t end up looking like a pajama outfits.
No matter the hours, the waiting, it’s best that you always look fresh. So pack accordingly to your journey conditions and get multifunctional pieces – random examples:
– don’t wear very thick cotton & wool T-shirts when travelling during summer time via bus/train.
– a large poncho can be a chic piece and also keep you warm in a plane or away from rain.
Instead you can use chic accessories to spark up your comfy outfit: deco for your bag, bracelets, necklaces, brooches.
Fabric jewelry easily passes security checks and it doesn’t hang heavy on your body. Wool & mohair jewelry to keep warm during winter and cotton or silk jewelry for easy breeze feeling in summer. It’s super light and doesn’t inconvenience you while sitting for hours in a chair.
Match with a reasonable size bag – not too big to faint while carrying it, not too small for your essentials (moisturizer, a mirror, phone, keys, notepad & pen, a brush, a small bottle fragrance etc). And do get only…the essentials. 🙂
So have fun, travel bugs, and dress smart.
