Travel Chic: How to be Fashionable While Traveling

Travel Chic Image

I've done more traveling in the last year than, like, ever. My job has had me traveling the country and my personal life has me doing the same. I've almost become a pro at packing and airport antics, but most importantly I've finally figured out the perfect combo of pieces to wear to have me comfortable and fly.

Here are my 6 rules for a good travel outfit:

  • Must have pockets. I need to be able to access my boarding pass, ticket, photo ID with ease. I hate digging in my purse every 5 minutes.
  • Must be comfortable. If I'm on a long flight or driving a ways I of course want to be comfortable.
  • Must have layers. Planes are COLD AF! Even my cardigan was not getting me through one of my flights. But, layering is good so if its hot you can undress and if its cold you can add. Plus, you may be going from cold weather to hot weather and vice versa (check the weather forecast). 
  • Must be cute. I don't need to be sexy, but I do need to look cute. You will be out in public around a bunch of folk so its good to look your best. Plus, there just might be a fine ass single man in the seat next to you, I'm just saying (heeeey boo).
  • Minimal make-up. A little concealer and lip gloss and keep it moving. I don't have time to be checking how my make-up is looking and I don't want too much on since it may get ruined while sleeping. But, I don't want to look a hot mess either.
  • Small jewelry. Besides the fact that your big ass gold chain may set-off the metal detector, its also just annoying trying to sleep and get comfortable with some large hoop earrings and chunky necklace. Keep it small and basic.

Peep these pieces below that are great for mixing and matching on your next trip.

They are so freaking comfortable and perfect for rolling up and taking with you in your purse for a night out when you are in heels and your feet start to scream.

I normally always have my backpack with me when I travel because its easy hands free transit. I am elated that stylish backpacks are in. Target has a fabulous assortment for every style!
