A successful in transit wardrobe lies in the edit where comfort meets style. Here’s how you can keep up appearances and transition from one zone to the next feeling fresh, polished and ready for action.
Choose a versatile jacket in a neutral tone to anchor your look. It will work overtime at your destination and ensure you keep cozy and stylish en route.
Pants with a comfortable stretch are essential. It’s best to avoid belts as these can be uncomfortable over time and create problems with security check in, so look for a well cut pull on pant. A straight leg jean will go with anything, but make sure they stretch to allow you a comfortable curl up.
A simple long sleeve cotton T-shirt or comfy easy-care shirt, is an essential basic and a comfortable layering option. Loose fitting or firm is a matter of choice but one with length will keep you covered and snug over a long journey. Keep the colour basic – black, gray, white, navy or even khaki. You can’t go wrong.
Don’t even think about travelling in shoes that can’t be easily kicked off. Who needs to be hopping about removing shoes at security check in or fumbling about when on board? A loafer or ballet flat is the answer. They will take you anywhere, any time.
Pull it all together with a scarf that can drape, tie, flop or wrap. Try a cotton bandanna to add a mod look, or the silk print classic scarf is never out of place. A whimsical print can be chic and effective in a long line cashmere/silk/model blend scarf, or a Pashmina is a good convertible option. Let your mood determine.
The tote bag is the faithful friend to bring along. More on that later.
