I am about to embark upon a jaunt across 8 countries, through various fabulous cities over the next month. I am tagging along with my husband on his European tour (how Kate Hudson in “Almost Famous” of me!) and I.Am.Excited. But this leads to some serious packing and some serious questions (all of which are direly important like “Do they approve of mullet dresses in Sweden??” and “Will I need something warmer than a tailored motorcycle jacket in Glasgow?”) Serious stuff here, womanistas…
Before I start my trek though, I have to select an outfit that is chic and comfortable for transcontinental travel. This can be tricky, because many of my regular go-to travel fashions aren’t exactly comfortable when it comes to sleeping on a plane. (Have you ever tried to sleep in skinny jeans? I don’t recommend it…) Plus, I’m not as brave as Madonna and willing to wear my bathrobe through the airport.
So, my transcontinental travel wardrobe must-haves are simple, chic, and comfortable enough to take a snooze in!
You can add a fashion-forward touch with an oversized scarf (that can also double as a pillow, blanket, or eye mask during a flight!), and either a vest or cardigan - you definitely want layers during travel, since taxi/airport/plane temps tend to vary. I also opt for ballet flats. They are easy to take off when you head through security, and give your ensemble a “put together” touch. My absolute favorites are by Lanvin (so chic!), but these by Nine West are pretty fabulous too!
The last travel wardrobe must-have is a giant, carry-all bag that can house all of your electronics, magazines, snacks, and other various travel items (my husband always throws his gear into my bag too – so I need an EXTRA large tote!)
And there you have it. Travel wardrobe chicness at its finest (courtesy of the super-glam Nicole Richie!)
What about you, womanistas? What are your travel must-haves when it comes to your wardrobe?
Happy flying to a fabulous locale, womanistas!
