Travel and fashion have something huge in common: they are both addicting. Combining the two is one of the more gratifying ways to tap into a creative outlet. As tempting as it might be to throw on a pair of chucks and your favorite old sweatpants, there are ways to elevate your comfortable wardrobe and add a touch of chic to it. The key here is finding your style inspiration & executing it in a way that makes you feel comfortable, stylish and confident. Depending on where you are going, you could be on a plane for anywhere from 1 hour to 8 hours and you’ll want to be ready for whatever adventure comes your way as soon as you step foot to your destination!
This is your chance to shed off your normal day to day facade and push the limits on things you normally might not wear. When deciding what to wear for my adventure, I wanted an outfit that would be ready for anything. I paired my favorite Topshop jeans with a flowy Topshop crop top (say that 5 times fast) and a classic leather jacket. This outfit is great for just about everything. It’s comfortable, edgy and has just the right about of sex appeal.
Okay, I’ll admit it- My name is Shellay… and I am an over packer. Guilty! Options are a girl’s best friend. Because of this, I like wearing my staple pieces on the plane so I can mix and match super quickly when I get off. I chose a pair of black boots that zip on the side so getting through security will be a breeze, but would also go with about 90% of the other items I packed. They are heeled, so you can dress them up or down. Swap out the black jeans for a pair of high rise jean shorts with flip flops and you’re beach ready in seconds! It’s important to be mindful of potential climate changes, as well as the deathly air conditioning that turns you into an icicle after takeoff.
– Wear your “staple” items so you can easily transform your outfit for any occasion
– Layer up! If you are leaving a cold climate for a warm one, you’ll want to be fully prepared for any climate and either bundle up or shed down
– Booties or shoes that are easy to take on an off, making your life so much easier at the dreaded airport security
– Accessorize, but not too much. Keep it simple so there’s one less thing to get in the way while juggling your bags, phone, passport and whatever else
