Remember the good old days when people used to get all dressed up to travel? Carefully selecting each piece of clothing to look their best while getting to their destination was part of the adventure. I love watching old movies and reliving those days, when it was all about the details and putting together a special travel look, featuring a powerful suit and a fitted blazer, hats, gloves, scarves, handkerchief, and overcoats. Both men and women of all ages, and even children, looked sharp, complementing their looks with the right accessories, like leather trunks and handheld cosmetic bags and dressing cases.
Today, I feel a little mortified when I see people at the airport traveling in pieces meant for the gym or to run weekend errands. Wearing worn-in shorts, a t-shirt, flip-flops, tracksuits, and, in my opinion the worst, old pajamas. We all want to travel comfortably, but there are ways to do so and still look put together and stylish. Look ahead for some functional and still very comfortable looks to try next time you're getting on a plane!
