So, you’ve got the itch to jet-set, but dread looking like you’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards post-flight? You’ll be happy to know that it is not an inevitability! It is perfectly possible to travel on a plane or train, even for many hours at a time, and still emerge looking fresh as a daisy.
Sound good? Here are some top tips to ensure you always look well-dressed and fresh when travelling.
Invest in a Capsule Wardrobe
It’s all about being minimal but versatile. Opt for clothes that can be mixed and matched seamlessly. Neutral colours are your best mates here – think beige, navy, white, and black.
Layer Like a Pro
Flights can be as unpredictable as good old-fashioned British weather. One moment you’re in the Sahara, the next you’re in the Arctic. Layering helps. For ladies, a pashmina or light cardigan is gold. Gents, think light sweaters or a trendy denim jacket.
Comfort is King (and Queen!)
Especially for those torturous long-haul flights. Ladies, stretchy leggings or loose trousers are fab. Gents, those comfortable chinos from the top menswear section you save for Sundays? Perfect! They look good, and they are less likely to get creased like your favourite linens, so they are a good choice for effortless style and comfort.
Ditch the Heels and Brogues
High heels and tight leather shoes aren’t your friends when travelling. Instead, opt for stylish slip-ons or trendy trainers. They’re comfy, chic, and won’t make you hobble after a few hours.
