Airport Apparel. Travelling gear. Outfit that you’ll definitely want to peel off before you’ve even flopped on the hotel bed after a 9 hour flight. Everyone has their own opinions on travel attire, some like to keep it simple, some will go full on pyjama style, and others like to go for a more dressed up approach. Personally, I fall somewhere in the middle. I definitely like to make sure I’m comfortable, but I always like to make sure I’m looking somewhat presentable, you know, just in case Brad Pitt happens to be on my flight or something. I like to base the amount of hours I’ll spend travelling on the level of ‘deranged child who probably grew up in the wild’ I’ll look, a 22 hour flight would most likely see me wearing pyjama bottoms that I brought yonks ago with a mysterious stain on the left leg and a small hole in the crotch (but they’re SUUUPER comfy right), while a 2 hour journey might call for something I feel more, well, like a human being, in.
As I’ve been informed it is now Summer (you just never know in the U.K) and everyone seems to be jetting off on their hollibobs sooner or later, I decided to put together 3 different travelling outfits, one comfy option, one stylish option, and one that it is a bit of the two. So if you’re like me and you can just never make your mind up on what you want to go for, you have 3 solid options to get you through. You’re welcome.
It should also be kept in mind that I’ve put these together regarding my own preferences, and I usually like to dress for warm weather so I’m not too hot and sweaty once I get to my destination, but any of these items can be swapped out for warmer options!
1. The Comfortable Option
Jumper – Disneyland Paris
Shorts – Missguided
Bag – Primark
Trainers – Puma
There’s nothing I love more than just chucking on an oversized jumper. I tend to wear this one as a dress (with shorts underneath) as it’s in a size XXL. For a warmer option simply add leggings – instant comfort.
2. The Chic Option
Top – H&M
Shorts – TU
Shoes – Primark
Hat – Forever 21
Bag – Primark
I love this option because it’s so simple to pair a plain white tee with comfy shorts and slip ons, but it still comes across as presentable, especially when you add the hat, which instantly adds an extra dosage of chic to any outfit! Not to mention, wearing your hat whilst traveling means you don’t have to pack it. As you can see, I wore this outfit on my recent trip to Paris (blog post on that coming very soon!) and it was the perfect thing to take me from exploring the city in the morning, to traveling back home that afternoon. If you don’t want to get chilly simply add a light cardigan, jumper, or simply switch patterned shorts for trousers.
3. The Bit of Both Option
Playsuit – Forever 21
Hat – Vintage shop on Melrose Avenue
Jacket – Heavenly Couture
Shoes – Primark
I realise of course that on the first look this one definitely seems more on the less comfortable side of the spectrum. But this playsuit is really comfortable for being in hot weather because of how light it is, and it’s such an easy item to just throw on with a jacket.
And if none of these appeal to you, you could just do what I did on my trip to Paris last week and rock up in your Minnie Mouse onesie…
Hope you enjoyed, stay tuned for my Paris blog post coming up in the next week!
