I’m sure you’re looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. All of this travel talk lately has me wishing I could fast forward to March and be on my way to Los Angeles! Before jetting off to any destination, I always make sure I have the perfect (and by perfect I mean most comfortable without wearing pajamas) travel attire. There are 7 key pieces to achieving the perfect travel attire:
LOOSE FITTING TOP
The last thing you want is to be fidgeting in your seat because your top is too tight. Something light like a cotton tee is always a good choice! You want to make sure it’s breathable.
I know what you’re thinking. A loose top and stretchy pants? This is what you wear all the time, Natalie! I know and I love it. I went for faux leather leggings but really any stretchy pant will do. The one’s I’m wearing just look a little dressier but are still comfortable.
COMFORTABLE SHOES YOU CAN SLIP ON AND OFF EASILY
Nothing can ruin a trip faster than a pair of shoes that hurt your feet. A pair of black sneakers complement most casual outfits and will make running through the airport easy and painless. I always wear mine tied but loose enough that you can slip them off for situations like going through security at the airport.
Don’t be that person with bare feet on the plane. It’s gross and unsanitary. Maybe you don’t plan on taking off your shoes on a flight but if you do, you want to make sure you have a good pair of socks on! I am still guilty of wearing socks that don’t match every now and then but I do make an effort to wear a matching pair when I travel. 🙂
COAT/COZY SWEATER THAT CAN ALSO BE A BLANKET
The main thing is to have layers. I tend to always freeze on planes but some people bundle up so much they burn up! I always bring a chunky sweater or long coat that I can wear as a blanket once I’m on the plane.
THE PERFECT CARRY-ON
I fell in love with this black carry-on that I found at T.J. Maxx. It’s simple, chic, easy to carry, and something both me and my husband can carry. It is easy to store and would complement any outfit! I linked several identical (and affordable!) options below!
Hats are usually an accessory brought on vacation but finding a place to store it in a carry-on can be tough. A hat isn’t necessarily a must-have but I do tend to wear mine instead of stuff it in my bag. I scored this straw wide brim fedora one at DSW for $3 (hard to beat!!) but I found this panama hat and this knit fedora for only $24! I also found the cutest “his and hers” luggage tags EVER!
What is your perfect travel attire? Leave me a comment and let me know!
I hope you have a great weekend!
