As the weather gets warmer, travel season gets busier! Here at Best Friends For Frosting, we are hoping for a tropical getaway! We love how relaxing and fun a vacation can be, but sometimes getting there can be a little stressful. One problem is trying to find the perfect traveling outfit! We are so thrilled to have Amanda Reid of Rose City Style Guide here to help us create that effortless chic look for the journey to our next getaway! Here is Amanda with her easy to pull off chic and comfortable travel style:
Even though I won’t be headed anywhere warm this spring break (*tear*), I will be traveling a lot this season so I have lined up some simple tips to help you stay stylish on your journey!
First up, depending on where your traveling to, I always think of my traveling outfit as a part of my entire wardrobe I am bringing, so I always pick pieces I can easily blend into other outfits. For example, a classic white shirt can be incorporated into any climate. So even though its freezing in the airport back home it would still look great as I stepped off the plane down south by simply rolling up the sleeves.
Layers are also essential for those changes in temperature on and off the plane. I always layer with either a cardigan or blazer (depending on if I am traveling for business or pleasure) This duster cardigan in particular also doubles as a blanket at 35,000 feet.
Besides your carry on, I always bring a shoulder strap purse that can fit the necessities like your passport, tickets, and money. The best part is that it is hands free so you still have hands for that last minute coffee and your carry on.
One of my simplest tricks for looking polished while traveling is wearing a red lip. It instantly gives you a chic look without all the effort. I love Nars’ combination lipstick and lip pencil, Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Siren Red, it combines the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick.
Jeans are super comfortable to wear on a long flight, they won’t wrinkle, and easily blends into the rest of your wardrobe. Want to look a little more polished? Don’t go for ripped jeans or swap in black ones.
Because of security checkpoints, minimalism is key when it comes to accessories. A watch and earrings give you just enough flare without having to remove too many items in security.
Lastly, a scarf is the perfect partner in crime while traveling. A bigger, more shawl-like scarf can be used as a blanket to keep warm on a long flight.
