The Ultimate Travel Outfit (or How to Travel in Comfortable Style)

For many of us, the holiday season equals travel. Finding the right balance between comfort and style, when traversing airports, train stations, and surviving long car rides, can seem like a challenge. I'm here to tell you that you don't have to sacrifice style for comfort and you can totally take your travel wardrobe to the next level with items you may already own. 

Are there seriously other options to just putting on your best active wear?  Yes!  Some of the outfit options below even include yoga pants. *gasp* 

The most important things to remember when choosing what to wear for travel are: 

  • You can feel cozy and look good at the same time.
  • 9 times out of 10 you will receive better service when you're dressed well.
  • How you look affects your mood; It's a much better feeling when you like what you are wearing!

Here are my top 5 travel outfit ideas.  Some of them were worn for travel others are outfits that I wish I was wearing to travel in!

Option 1 
Wear a sleeved maxi dress with a blanket scarf and sneakers.  I wore this outfit to travel to Charleston, South Carolina for New Year's this year.

Option 2 
Wear a tunic shirt with leggings, boots, and a colorful scarf.  I wore this outfit during our travels around Germany this past fall.

Option 3
Wear a flowy blouse with black leggings and boots.  This is an inspiration outfit I found at my local Francesca's

Option 4
Wear a drawstring skirt with a cotton tshirt.  Add a scarf and coat with comfortable shoes.  (I would substitute the flip flops for sneakers in cooler weather.)

Option 5
Wear leggings, a tee, and a sweater tied around your waist.  Add some fun printed leopard sneakers like this fellow traveler I met in the Charleston airport!

I am so excited to collaborate with Betabrand in their "Wanderlust Holiday Wardrobe" challenge.  If you are looking for new travel-wear be sure to check out their women's pants and their red-eye wrap!  They definitely have the right essentials to complete your travel wardrobe!
