Don’t hit the road without these stylish essentials
Are you going on a trip? Good! Since we often dream of going on our own little getaway, we’ve put our organizational skills to use to bring you a list of essential clothes and accessories to pack for your forthcoming vacay.
Whether it’s warm or cool at your destination, when travelling, it’s always a good idea to wear layers. An even better one: planning which layering pieces you’ll wear. A camisole, a coat… anything goes so long as you don’t forget to pack at least one breathable sweater, and a light and warm coat. That way, whether it’s air conditioning, the midday sun or the cool night breeze, you’ll be ready for any scenario without having to carry a heavy load.
Whether you travel by plane, train or car, the goal is the same: remain comfortable. What you’ll need: workout pants. You should look for a pair made with stretchy, breathable material, and that is also versatile, like leggings with a flattering cut and feminine detailing that won’t give off the impression that you’ve just left the gym, or even a looser, trendy model nipped at the ankle.
In addition to keeping you warm when it gets cool, a big, beautiful scarf doubles as a blanket or pillow while you’re on the road. Plus, you can drape it over your shoulders for a chic look for a night on the town. Most importantly, lightweight sneakers with good support are a must. Look for a versatile pair that you can wear no matter the occasion.
