Travel in Style This August
August is the perfect month to travel. Soaring temperatures paired with the knowledge that the summer is starting to wind down have people flocking en masse to airports around the country trying to check one last trip off of their summer bucket list. All this travel necessitates comfortable clothing, but who’s to say that you can’t look good while jet-setting without sacrificing comfort? Keep reading for our top tips for traveling comfortably while looking your best during all your upcoming trips.
Chic, monochromatic layers
Airports, in addition to any other mode of transportation, are typically a shot in the dark with regards to temperature. This is why dressing in layers is absolutely essential. We suggest starting with a basic knit tank top, like this affordable option from Zara, paired with on-trend monochromatic pants and travel ready shoes. We love these chic white pants from Revolve, paired with these fashion-forward yet comfortable slip on sandals.
Another reason we love dressing in layers for travel is because you can add layers if your mode of transportation is cold, but you won’t be left in an overly warm outfit once you get to a tropical destination. Make sure to check the local weather forecast for your destination on the ThreadWeather app before you pack for your trip to make sure that your airport-to-destination outfit is seamless.
With so many options to choose from, there is no need to sacrifice form in favor of function with your luggage. Our top tip is picking luggage that has wheels, and a carry on bag with tons of pockets. Our top picks for stylish and affordable luggage are Dagne Dover ( we especially love this chic carry on bag) and Beis (their top-selling rolling suitcase is divine.) For travel accessories, we love eco-friendly brand Truffle’s TSA-compliant bags. Our favorite is this case, a perfect option for organizing anything from liquids to chargers, and everything in-between.
Nothing pulls together an otherwise boring outfit like the perfect accessory. Contrary to popular belief, jewelry won’t set off metal detectors at the airport as the metal content is too small. Dress up your outfit with layers of gold necklaces, and beach-ready sunglasses. For sportier types, a comfortable yet stylish sneaker is perfect to walk around all day in.
