Stylish Travel Outfits To Keep You Comfy While Travelling

Travelling in the summer can be fun and exciting. However, trying to beat that last-minute rush can be more than stressful – you know, trying to fit everything into a suitcase, making sure the cat is fed, fitting in those last-minute appointments – we’ve all been there.  

Next thing you know, it’s time to leave for the airport and you end up in a less-than-stylish, not-that-comfortable travel outfit. We may or may not have ended up in the terminal of Italy’s biggest airport wearing a jumper in the middle of summer…

But why dim your sparkle with basic travel looks when you can still look fabulous AND be on time?

Sit back and keep reading these tips to learn how to travel in comfort and in style.

Simplicity Is Key

We know, we know, you’ve heard this before. But it’s true – simplicity is key. When dressing for transit and travel it can be easy to fall into the trap of choosing an overly glam airport outfit for the sake of looking chic at the boarding gate.

However, it’s important to remember your travelling outfit should work seamlessly with the rest of your travel outfits and consist of classic pieces that can be mixed and matched on your holiday. Now don’t worry, simplicity doesn’t mean boring. Instead select silhouettes made from high-quality fabrics such as cotton or linen that you can easily dress up with colourful accessories.

Say Yes To Midi Dresses

A summer travel wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without including a crowd favourite – the Midi dress. Midi dresses are a one-stop for comfort and total freedom when looking at travel clothes. When choosing a travel dress for summer, go for a floaty silhouette that will be suitable for warmer weather and keep it vibrant with a summery floral pattern or striking block colour.

Pair with sandals or a sneaker when travelling and swap them out for statement heel once you’ve reached your destination.

To accessorize your summer dress, add a statement belt and earrings to switch up your look or pop on some oversized shades at your destination for an editorial worthy look!

When In Doubt Stick To Neutrals

One of the biggest advantages of sticking to a neutral colour palette for your summer travel outfits is that it streamlines the getting ready process leaving you more time to relax in style. A few more hours by the pool? Sign us up.

To avoid your outfits feeling bland and uninspiring, try experimenting with different textures such as linens and crinkle cotton fabrics. Not only are they synonymous with summer but they leverage the ease of summer dressing and will keep your holiday outfits fresh, interesting and breezy!

THINGS YOU CAN WEAR ON THE PLANE

Whether you're travelling to get home or to make a statement at destination, here is some inspiration for your in-transit wardrobe:

Fabric Matters

Fabric can often be overlooked when thinking about travel outfits, however it’s arguably one of the most important factors in a successful travel wardrobe. Remember it's summer, so you'll want to opt for lighter and breathable materials to keep you cool and dry.

Now, you’re in holiday mode so try and avoid high-maintenance or delicate fabrics – standing over an ironing board for hours doesn’t really scream relaxation, right?

Instead look for fabrics that will be suitable for your summer travel wardrobe yet will still give you maximum comfort in transit. At BB we are lovers of fuss-free fabrics such as crinkle cotton, bamboo and micro modal. These fabrics will allow you to sit and stretch for a long period and they are incredibly breathable – perfect for keeping you cool once you’ve reached your destination.

 

Travel hack: If you find yourself with a slightly crushed garment and no iron to be found, hang it up in the bathroom when showering and let the steam do its magic! It won’t give you iron-crisp finish but it’s fab in pinch!

Athleisure Anyone?

If athleisure is more your style, then don’t worry we have you covered. The key to chic but sporty travel outfits is finding the right balance between looking classy and comfortable.

For ultimate comfort, choose a pair of soft and stretchy leggings as your base and layer with a relaxed button down or jumper for a more refined look.

Take your travelling outfit from airport to hotel lobby, by finishing the look with a pair of elevated sneakers and remember to always accessorise!

Tote Bag

Whether you’re travelling overseas or interstate, it can be easy to get overwhelmed when battling congested airport crowds. This is where the trusty tote bag comes in to keep you sane, organised and stress-free. Tote bags are essential travel companions for several reasons but, most importantly, they keep all you prized possessions within arm’s reach and away from chaotic baggage carousels.

When searching for the perfect tote, versatility is key. Consider opting for a bag with a woven or canvas finish that can be a used a beach bag during your holiday.
