The Seven Travel Essentials
1. Chambray top
This versatile item can be used as a light layer, paired over a casual dress or white tee. It can be tied around the waist or worn buttoned up and tucked into a pair of black or white jeans with a scarf and belt.
2. Printed Scarf
A scarf, like jewelry, is one of the easiest things to mix and match and it instantly elevates a basic look.
3. Basic Tee
The right tee is key. For an effortless look, it can be worn alone with jeans or layered under a cardigan or your chambray top.
A great pair of jeans is must! Choose a pair with a nice dark or medium wash that can be worn multiple times and with a range of shoe options.
5. Easy Dress
Select a simple and basic dress that can that be worn for multiple occasions and easily dressed up or down by pairing it with the right mix of essentials and accessories.
A cozy cardigan is a must for chilly plane rides and unexpected temperatures either indoors or out. Select one that can easily be dressed up or down.
7. Neutral Necklace
Accessories are one of the easiest ways to switch up a look. Pack a few neutral pieces of jewelry that will allow you to elevate or downplay your outfit.
Now that we know what to pack, let’s discuss your travel outfit. While comfort is important, you don’t need to throw style out the window. What you wear to the airport is the first outfit you will be seen in at your final destination, so looking presentable and stylish is a must. We recommend a pair of cute and comfortable joggers styled with your basic tee and layered with a versatile jacket so you have an extra layering option that you don’t have to pack. Happy Travels!
