what do you wear when you travel?

When I’m preparing to travel, I always find myself debating between fashion and function. When I pack my suitcase, there’s always that pair of shoes I want to bring and the pair I know I should bring. I usually have to leave my favourite leather handbag at home and opt instead for one that will fold up and tolerate being stuffed in my suitcase more stoically. And when I get dressed before heading to the airport, I usually opt for a pair of jeans, a cotton top and ballet flats – stylish but comfortable. Until now:

Heading to Hamburg earlier this week (with a three-hour layover at London Heathrow’s T5), I decided to wear a maxi dress, jean jacket and flip flops. I think I’ve found my new travel uniform. It was stylish but oh-so-comfortable and a breeze to get through security – no belt, no laced shoes. I honestly felt like I was wearing jammies. Jeans are only comfortable to a point but even the most worn-in pair starts to dig into your hips somewhere over the Atlantic. I don’t think there’s anything more comfortable than a maxi dress and it looked great, too. Throw on a jean jacket for warmth on the plane and you’re set. Simple.

  2. I totally agree! Love wearing dresses in the airport, much more comfortable and stylish than jeans. Plus, isn’t looking good half the fun of traveling? 🙂
