Chic Travel Attire…Spring Break Edition!

Spring break is right around the corner and soon enough we will all be hopping on planes for our spring break holiday and what better way to start off that fabulous vacation than in style.  Here are my best insider tips on what to wear when boarding that plane so you look fashionable, chic and fabulous!

The Top: Layers, layers, layers!  The best tip I can tell you when travelling is to have lots of layers.  As you know, the temperature on the plane can go from boiling hot to freezing cold in 3 seconds flat so the key here is layers.  A basic white tee or tank layered with button down and a great LLJ (little leather jacket) This way you will be covered for any of those crazy changes in temperature.  Find  a similar one here.

The Bottom: Next to looking great you definitely want to be comfortable, especially since you will be sitting for hours on the plane.  A high-waisted skinny jean is the best option. I love this option from Mother Denim; not only are they comfortable, soft and stretchy but these jeans will keep you looking super chic and on trend.

The Shoes:  For shoes, you absolutely want a pair that is not only easy to slip on and off while going through security but also really comfortable since you will be running around the airport in them as well.  If it is still chilly where you are travelling from my suggestion is to opt for a pointy ballet flat or a slip on sneaker.  Both options are easy to slip on and off, flat for comfort yet they still have that edge and style.  The black pointy ballet flat is from Zara and the sneaker is by Sam Edelman.

The Accessories:

Scarf: If I had to pick only one accessory to travel with it would be the scarf.  I don’t know how but a simple billowy scarf pumps up any outfit and makes even the most basic of travel outfits seem chic and deliberate.  Plus a great scarf will also keep you nice and cozy when the person next to you on the plane decides to blast their AC!


Sunglasses:  A great pair of oversized sunnies are a staple for travelling.  When you are feeling “blah” and tired after your long flight, throw on a pair of oversized sunnies.  They will cover up those tired eyes and keep you looking stylish and “put together”.   These are amazing and are by one of my favorite sunglasses designer, Tom Ford.

The Bag:  Last but certainly not least is a great bag; where else will you hold all your essential travel accessories?  I would stick to a tote or oversized shoulder bag but make sure it can secure it tightly!  The last thing you need is for your bag to fall over under your seat and for all your stuff to fall out!  This one here is by Celine and it amazing, timeless and classic!

    I have a question about the shoes. I don’t own a pair of toms, but they are similar in design to those flat sneakers. .everyone seems love their toms. I thought about getting a few pairs for spring/summer, but I think most people wear them without socks. My feet get all cut up and sore when I don’t wear socks. Do you recommend wearing them without socks as well? If so, what do you suggest I should do?? Thanks in advance!!

      Hey Aimee.. Thanks so much for your comment/question! So for the shoes…I would say to buy a pair or two of the no show socks. They are great, just make sure that you get a pair that fits otherwise they fall and slip into your shoes which can be REALLY annoying!! xoxo

      Hey Aimee!

      Yes, socks can work! Get the ped ones that are really tiny, you can’t see them at all. Try Norsdtroms, they have some great pairs with little gripees on the heel so they don’t fall down.

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day. It’s always interesting to read content from other authors and practice something from other web sites.

    I am really impressed along with your writing talents and also with the structure to your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it your self? Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a nice blog like this one these days..
