Traveling should be an exciting and relaxing experience, not something stressful you dread. Use our tips to ensure a worry-free trip!
Plan your Plane-Day Outfit
Of course you want to look fabulous getting on and off the plane, but there’s no reason to sacrifice comfort! Likewise, there’s no reason to look like a mess when you’re on the move! Opt for relaxing, neutral colors, jeggings or leggings instead of pants to be more comfy, a chic and slouchy cardigan for your onboard nap, and a flowy tunic that makes you look and feel long and lean. To pull everything together, slip on a pair of high, leather boots to give your look a ‘fashionable jetsetter’ vibe.
Pack with Purpose
If you can’t think of at least two occasions to wear it, don’t pack it! Opt for basics that you can use more than once [the perfect LBD, nude pumps, a black cami, a striped tunic top, etc.] and then add in one or two statement pieces for your main travel activities that can be complimented by the basics. When in doubt, think about the pieces you wear on a regular basis – those are the ones you most regret not packing!
Nothing is a bigger zap on your energy, mood and complexion when traveling than a lack of hydration! Drink LOTS of water, limit caffeine, and if possible pack hydrating snacks like watermelon, blueberries, grapefruit, pineapple, and pears, all of which are much healthier than anything you’ll find at 30,000 feet!
Think Like an Adult, Pack Like a Kid
Think of it as a “grown up” fun bag – make sure carry-on is full of everything you’ll need while traveling; headphones to listen to music, that book you’ve been dying to read but lacking the time to, a sleep mask for an undisturbed nap, healthy snacks for the trip, etc. Consider the plane ride a mini-vacation just for you and make the most of it!
Hold on to your valuables!
We’d all like to think that what we pack in our bags will make it safely to our destination with us, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry! Keep anything you cannot live, or at the very least travel without in your carry-on so that you won’t have to worry about whether or not you will see it again …
