With year-round travelling, to more and to different places than ever before, finding the perfect travel outfit can be a challenge. Depending on where you are going and why, some styles are just better suited for
We believe that dressing fashionably for travel can be just as comfortable and easy as flying in a t-shirt and cargo pants or sweats. You can arrive in style and make a great impression, without wearing anything high maintenance.
Consider getting a few designated travel outfits, to make this part of your journey a no-brainer. They can be your “stylish-travel-uniform”. Darker colours or neutrals work because they don’t show travel wear. Leave the whites for your destination.
We’ve put together a great list of options that can all work together, so you can travel in comfort and arrive in style.
A DRESS is the ultimate do-it-all piece. Pair with sneakers for planes and trains, then add heels and some red lipstick for dinner. Try Tencel-Lyocell blends, knitted jerseys to keep wrinkle-free or embrace and rock the wrinkle in cool neutral linen.
COMFORTABLE PANTS Warm destinations call for breathable and quick-drying fabrics, that can still mean a design with a smart silhouette, more tailored than a traditional cargo pant and less informal than jeans.
Consider legging-pant hybrids or fitted joggers that are super stretchy and comfortable. These high-rise or drawstring pants mould to your shape without being too tight and cramping your style en route, whether on a plane, a hike, a bike or a day of exploring a city.
TRAVEL BLAZER Don’t bring too many but make the ones you choose comfortable and versatile. Save room in your carry-on by wearing your blazer during the trip.
Blazers look great paired with the dress above for a professional look and add cool to the comfortable pants above. Again, add heels and you’re ready for either a meeting or drinks & dinner.
A nice fabric with some stretch in it, like a heavier jersey will wear wrinkle-free. Natural fibres like linen will crease, but that’s part of the charm of linen. Wool mixes and longer lengths work for cooler destinations and can double as a coat.
Alternatively, a lovely printed kimono-style jacket can go a long way to make great combinations with all the other items on this list.
CROSS BODY BAG
Is there anything more practical yet stylish than a great cross body bag? We think not. Nothing worse than having to juggle your handbag while you try to keep track of documents in the check-in line or haul your overnight bag in the overhead bins. Ideally it should be big enough to hold all your immediate essentials; phone, wallet, passport, meds, lip balm, but not so big it will be a heavy burden to carry all day while city tripping. ModaBox has many great options for you to try!
WRAP it up!
The one item that ties it all together: a big and cozy wrap or scarf to multitask as whatever you need it to be. Fluffy, warm and super lightweight in cashmere or wool to double as a blanket on the plane, a stole on chilly nights out, and even a makeshift pillow while in transit.
On trips to warm climates, bring a lightweight scarf, wrap or sarong in an easy wash-and-wear fabric to double as a coverup, a turban for bad hair days, a beach blanket, a beach-to-lunch dress or skirt improv and so much more.
