I recently shared my favorite travel hairstyle, but what about the rest of you, right?
Here's an example of my favorite travel outfit:
Tight tank + Loose t-shirt + Scarf + Comfortable Pants + Flats = Lovely to Wear, Lovely to Look at.
the Tight tank will help keep you warm while also absorbing most of the sweat should you get too warm.
the Loose t-shirt is not only cooling and comfortable, it lets you have a bit of freedom with what kind of bra you wear- so you can wear your most comfortable one... or a sports bra!
the Scarf (not pictured, it's in my purse) lets you adjust your temperature on a plane, which can range anywhere from hell to hell frozen over. I usually get one that's thin so you can kind of twist it to make it cover very little surface area when you're warm, yet will fold out to be big enough to act as a blanket.
the Comfortable pants are probably the most important part of this. If you're skinny enough, then you have won the travel jackpot and can totally wear jeggings and bask in their comfort. For the rest of us, however, jeggings are not an option. I have secret pants. They look dressy even though they're a bit stretchy and... get this... they have an elastic waistband and a drawstring. Is it a little embarrassing to admit? Sure. But is it totally worth being comfortable? OMGYES. I usually go with full length pants that i can roll up if I get warm, but it's hot in Tokyo now and I'm not willing to die of heatstroke for a picture.
I can't find them on the US website right now, but I've gotten a pair in the US as well. Here's a link to the Japanese Uniqlo site for the best travel pants ever.
the Flats should be easy to slip on and off* during airport security, and because even if you're one of those people who likes to remove their shoes after takeoff, no one should go into the bathroom without footwear.
Bonus: I love my LongChamps le pliage bag when I'm on the road (ok, all the time, but especially when I'm on the road). I can fold it up to put in my backpack when I'm in rural areas, yet whip it out and look chic when I'm in the city. It's also super lightweight.
*Unfortunately, my favorite travel flats were just ruined when I was caught in a couple monsoons. I hate rainy season. grumbles.
