Traveling and fashion go hand in hand, so why is it so difficult for even the most experienced world travelers to find the perfect traveling outfit and accessories? Throughout my experiences (good, bad, and forgetful), I’ve found the perfect essentials and tips to make traveling in style that much easier. Enjoy!
White + Warren Classic Cashmere Two Way Topper, $275
Absolutely perfect to throw on for the chilly plane air.
Eddie Harrop The Voyager studded textured-leather weekend bag, $1,205
This black leather weekend bag is perfect to carry-on your essentials, as well as a change of clothes in case you are going far. Sometimes changing into a new outfit over your layover can feel like the next best thing to a shower.
Diane Von Furstenberg Silk Jersey Maxi Wrap Dress, $575
Any one of DVF’s wrap dresses are ideal for traveling, as they are comfortable and easy to throw on. I love the maxi dresses, as you can hide a pair of tights underneath (in case you are always freezing like myself), as well as throw on a pair of flats underneath and for all anyone will be able to tell, you could be rocking sky high stilettos. As a bonus, wrap dresses are versatile enough to look great over a swimsuit on your way to the pool or beach, as well as for the day and night.
Stella McCartney Cat’s-Eye Sunglasses, $300
These bring me back to a time when travel was absolutely glamorous…not just LuluLemon and a pair of birks on the plane.
The perfect travel-size hair tools so that you can leave more room in your suitcase for that extra pair of statement heels. Plus, no matter if your staying at the Ritz or Holiday Inn, hotels never seem to have a decent blow-dryer.
Nicholas Kirkwood Textured-leather point-toe flats, $395
Chic enough to spruce up an outfit, and comfortable (and easy) enough to slip on and off at security.
Sophie Hulme Twin Keyhole leather clutch, $445
A small clutch with detachable straps is perfect for traveling, as you can use ’em as cross body bags for sightseeing (so much easier than toting around a handbag), and as a clutch for a night out.
