7 Tips for Traveling in Style ...


The holidays are here again, and that means it’s time for turkey, trees, tinsel, and of course, tips for traveling in style!

But while you may not be able to avoid getting hit with a $25 bag-check fee or delayed by an unexpected snowstorm, you can at least make sure you look great with the help of a few quick and easy tips for traveling in style.

From keeping your makeup simple to saving the pajama pants for the gym, these tips are effortless enough for a casual girl like me, but also savvy enough to satisfy my fashion-focused sister.

Give them a try to help make this year’s trek to grandma’s house your best ever!

1. Keep Your Makeup Simple... and Moisturizing

One of my especially easy tips for traveling in style is to skip heavy foundations and choose a tinted moisturizer instead.

Recycled plane air is known to be incredibly drying, and who wants to arrive at her destination with dried up, flaking makeup?

Not only will a tinted moisturizer help keep your skin from drying out, but it can also be easily touched up before you arrive.2

You can keep the rest of your look fresh, too, with a touch of mascara, cream blush and tinted lip balm.

2. Swap the Basic Duffel for a Cuter Carry-on

Walking through the airport can feel awfully depressing when you’re surrounded by a sea of blacks, browns and grays.

Brighten things up with a cute, colorful print for your carry-on!2

Vintage-inspired bags like those from Pan-Am are also a unique and eye-catching choice, as are trendy bags with metallic details, buckles and zippers.2

Of course, extra zippers and pockets always come in handy when you need to store that extra magazine or $5 bottle of water.

3. Say No to Pajama Pants

There’s a fine line between being comfortable and looking downright sloppy, so skip the sweats and gym clothes in favor of something more stylish yet still relaxed.

Casual, worn-in jeans always look good and should be comfortable enough for even a long flight.

If you still prefer something more loose-fitting, a cotton maxi skirt or shirt dress is a great alternative.
