How to Travel in Style

July 5, 2013

Whether it’s for business or pleasure it pays to make the extra effort and travel in style. Not only will you look great but you will feel confident and comfortable on arrival. First impressions count and you don’t want to arrive at your first meeting looking travel weary and rumpled, if you are off on a holiday you will want to look and feel your best.

Comfort comes first when it comes to commuting. The latest platform heels may look stunning but resist the urge to go clumping around the airport in them – you will end up with blisters for your efforts. Stick to the classics for travel such as a pair of skinny jeans, a floaty top and some cute pumps. Layers are always a good idea, especially if you are unsure of what kind of weather may greet you on arrival.

You can glam up your laid back travel kit with accessories if you like, pile the whole lot on in the morning and then pare it down to a respectable level from there, this also saves you packing space.

Every fashion advisor will tell you that a truly magnificent travel bag is a must-have for the stylish traveller but you will not look very sophisticated rummaging through it in search of your favourite lipstick. Keep it tidy and organised and your on-board essentials such as make up, phone, purse, hairbrush, sunglasses etc. will be close at hand.

Air-conditioning and cabin pressure can suck the life out of your skin and hair so apply moisturising treatment the night before your flight and be sure to freshen up your look before you disembark.

No matter how hard you try, no amount of preening is a substitute for real style, which stems from confidence and character, so keep your head up, your shoulders back and ‘work it’ for a look that will turn heads wherever you roam.
