Holidays are something I look forward to all the time as it allows me to experience new adventures while building beautiful memories.
Irregardless of whether it is a long haul flight or a short haul flight, the key to enjoying your holidays you have so patiently waited for and meticulously planned is to ensure you are well rested during the commute.
Comfort is key!
For today’s post, I want to share what you should wear while traveling for optimal comfort.
First up, I have been loving Madewell’s Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee. Cotton is a very breathable fabric which is something I appreciate when I’m travelling. This is offered in a multitude of colors. Given this piece is quite basic, it is super easy to layer and style.
Next, I always travel with a scarf. My current favorite is the Burberry Giant Check Print Wool & Silk Scarf as it elevates any outfit and is super lightweight. It doesn’t take up any room at all in my bag but serves such a big purpose when I need it.
Following this, I never travel without a cardigan. The one that I have been favoring is the Halogen Long Linen Blend Cardigan (currently 40% off). Again, this can easily be folded up and put away in my bag until I need to use it. This is also offered in a variety of colors.
Moving on to pants, I prefer something that is is very versatile since pants can take up a lot of space in my suitcase so I opt for something that I can dress up or down to suite any occasion. I am currently favoring the AG “The Legging” Ankle Jeans (currently 40% off).
As for shoes, I prefer something that I can slip in and out of easily. These Dr. Scholl’s “If Only Wedge Bootie” are perfect for those who still want a bit of a lift yet be comfortable.
You might have picked up a trend that I like to travel in pieces that are plain and simple. The reason behind this is this makes mixing and matching a lot easier so I can travel lighter.
In addition, be cognizant that the line ups going through security can be quite long. There are a lot of people also wanting and eagerly looking forward to start their vacation.
If you have a lot of embellishments or metal designs on your outfit, this can slow down the process quite a bit – for security reasons, they have to check everything out.
While on the plane, the key is to choose items that are stretchy and breathable for ultimate comfort.
Avoid clothing with too many buttons or zippers because it won’t be pleasant trying to button and zip up in a bathroom that is hard enough to just fit yourself in.
Definitely choose pieces that are easy to layer to adjust to the changing temperatures you might experience on your flight.
Though I am a huge fan of jumpsuits and rompers, they are definitely not as friendly to travel in.
Lastly, opt to wear glasses over contacts because the air quality is quite dry so your eyes will be happier without contacts.
