We’re now 90 days out from our upcoming trip to France (Loire Valley and Paris) and as always when we travel, I am very much enjoying the research and planning stages. Between now and then, I’ll be focusing one post per week on travel clothing, gear, accessories and strategies for traveling light and stylishly. If there are any particular topics or areas you’d like to see covered, let me know. As we get close to departure, I’ll share my travel capsule wardrobe for this trip.
While air travel is no longer the glamorous adventure it once was, I still believe we can journey comfortably without sacrificing style. At the very least we can still look neat and put-together, even for those long overseas flights. Layers are key not only for your destination, but also for in-transit garb. I always include a wool or cashmere pullover and a lightweight wrap/shawl for insanely variable cabin temperatures. Wear a lightweight tee shirt underneath (and a lightweight tank too if you tend to run cold like me) and add or remove layers as needed. Knits will be comfortable enough to sleep in, and won’t wrinkle. Cashmere is my favorite sweater material for warmth, light weight and lack of bulk, but lightweight marino wool is another good option, and can be less pricey. I stick with a neutral color that will coordinate with the rest of my travel wardrobe. A lightweight cashmere or cashmere blend wrap can be a shawl, scarf or pillow, and is a great way to add color.
What pieces do you rely on to stay comfortable and stylish while traveling?
