Travel Style

One of the many times that I feel like I was born into the wrong decade is when I travel. Why? Because I dress to travel!

So there I sit, surrounded by tracksuits and Uggs, feeling utterly out-of-place & daydreaming about scenes from North By Northwest and Sabrina. I mean, hello – Train station + Turban!

Travel Style:

Comfort¬†– Being comfortable is the most important thing when I fly. Especially now that I’m recovering from a spinal injury, I’m not adding to my overall misery by wearing four-inch heels or a mini skirt.

Duration¬†– If it’s a¬†short jaunt to LA I have one type of travel uniform, however if it’s an¬†international trip I usually bring a change of clothes as well as a toiletry kit. You have to plan ahead.

Destination¬†– It’s easy to forget, but try to keep in mind that it could be a completely different temperature when you land. Layers are key!

Uniform:

Black¬†– Traveling in all black is something¬†that I’ve come to terms with¬†over the years. It helps with matching, frantic last-minute sprints to the airport, and spillage.

You only have to realize you’re wearing navy blue and brown when you thought it was black and grey one time before you come¬†to the realization that black-on-black is the answer to stress free travel.

Layers – My usual in-flight uniform is slim black pants, a tank top or sweater depending on the season, cropped or boyfriend blazer, and an oversized pashmina.

Layers are important because when you travel your already overstressed body has to cope with constantly changing temperature. From 90 degrees as you get out of the cab to room temperature in the airport to freezing air blowing in your face – All within the span of 30 minutes!

International –¬†For a¬†long flight {8+ hours} I usually board and de-board in one outfit and spend the majority of the flight in something cozier. In my under-the-seat-bag go thick socks, leggings, a long-sleeved tunic, and a toiletry kit.

Tip: Pay attention to your skin when you fly internationally! I take off my make-up, moisturize, sometimes do a face¬†mask, and keep my toothbrush handy when I’m going to be traveling out of the US.

  3. I agree with all that you’ve mentioned. There’s nothing like travelling comfortably. It’s always easier to add some changes to the look later on. I made a mistake recently when travelling to hill-station. I got tricked into believing it’s summery hot and we didn’t pack any warm clothes. We had a buy sweaters later on from there. *facepalm*
