5 ESSENTIALS TO TRAVEL IN STYLE

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 multi transfer trips to warm climates than for, say, a client meeting in Paris.

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.
