Wear Weekly: Business Travel Fashion Tips

Whenever I travel, one of my favorite things to do is pack.  I know a lot of people hate packing but I find it fun and it forces me to pre-pick outfits. I tend to over pack.. so the first thing I do is pick the outfit that I am going to wear the day I travel. One thing I have learned is even though I want to be comfy and cozy on the plane, I still want to look cute and fashionable. Here are some great items that make traveling chic and easy.

These blazers from Antropologie are trendy and easy to throw on. You can layer items or play it simple with just a tank or tee. This is also great to have because airports tend to get cold!

Keep it simple with a tee or button down shirt. Find a blouse that is loose so you have room to stretch. I like to have a tee underneath a button down. If it gets hot some time during my travel, it’s easy to remove a layer. Plus it’s one less thing to pack!

If you don’t feel like a t-shirt and jacket, try an oversized sweater! This is easy to throw on and lounge around in. You can find one in a cute print or a cut that fits your style. Sweaters are versitile enough to dress up or dress down. Style it with some eye catching accessories and you are set!

Soft pants or joggers as they are called, are totally on trend for this year. It’s the new “cool and relaxed” look. If you style it right, these can look sophisticated and business casual. These are super comfortable and gives you so much free room. Forget about tight skinny jeans on a 5-hour plan ride! With joggers, you can be comfy on the plane and still professional.

 Grab a large carry-on bag. Not only is it great for storing items that you may need on the ride, it’s also a great statement piece. If your outfit is feeling plain, add a printed or colored bag. It’s a great pop of color. Here’s a tip: use your bag to carry a change of shoes. On the plane, wear your comfy sneakers or flats. Then when you land, quickly change into those high heels and you are ready to work!  It’s always good to be dressed for all sorts of occasions and these are easy items to put together to complete a cute and cozy outfit, perfect for work and travel. You can dress comfortably and stylish at the same time. Besides, you never know who you might run into at the airport! Safe travels!
