From time to time you may have to travel a long distance, for a business trip, to see family or go on vacation. When you travel, whether it be by car, plane or train, you want to be comfortable. Traveling those long distances can make you feel stiff and tired. When you dress in an outfit that is not only comfortable, but versatile too, you’ll be a happy traveler!
In the winter, you want to wear an outfit you can stay warm in. When you travel in the car or plane it can get warm quick. You’ll want to wear a third layer, like a cardigan, sweater or coat you can remove if you get too warm. I tend to wear a cardigan over a long sleeve tee when I travel. As soon as I get warm, the cardigan comes off and I can still wear the tee.
I wear an outfit that’s comfortable. Nothing is more uncomfortable while traveling than an outfit that is too tight or too itchy. Go for pieces like leggings, jeggings (jeans that stretch like leggings) and loose fitting, breathable tops. I focus on wearing clothes mostly made with cotton. Cotton keeps you feeling cool, letting your skin breathe.
If the weather isn’t too cold and you don’t feel like wearing a coat, wear a blanket scarf instead. You can wrap it around your neck to stay toasty warm, or wear it like a shawl! When you get too warm, just take it off and put it in your tote.
Also, carry a tote or a crossbody instead of your regular handbag. A tote will be roomy enough that you can pack a lot of stuff in it and use it as a carryon on a plane! A crossbody will keep your hands free so you can manage your luggage an paperwork while traveling on a plane.
When you pack your outfits, wear one outfit while you’re traveling. You can use those same pieces to go with other pieces you pack and wear again, so you can really make use of your capsule wardrobe!
The more outfits you can create out of a limited number of pieces = Less To Pack!
