Let's Hear it for the Boys

Some wonder whether it is the journey or the destination which is more important. As a fashion minded student, I pose a different option: it's neither the journey nor the destination that's important, but the outfit one wears while traveling.

On a campus of approximately forty thousand students, you see it all when it comes to clothes. What people choose to wear while traveling seems to mirror what they wear to the gym: sloppy, baggy and something I would only dress in to sleep. So you can imagine my surprise when I came across this Fashionisto on what appears to be his return to campus after Thanksgiving break.

This Fashionisto shows that you don't have to sacrifice style for comfort while traveling. He dons a bright red flannel shirt for his stylish travel ensemble. Flannel is a comfortable option for traveling while the plaid pattern adds fun detail to his outfit. I love how he layered his warm, down jacket open over his shirt for a pop of color. He chooses dark wash jeans for pants which are a casual, stylish option and coordinates his gym shoes to his shirt for a nice, unified look. His travel ensemble is completed with a navy duffel with preppy white trim.

For a weekend getaway or the upcoming winter break, pack your bags like this Fashionisto! Choose stylish yet comfy basics like a flannel shirt and jeans. Add a warm winter coat and a stylish travel carryall and you're all set. You may never want to leave while looking this good!

Hint: A duffel bag is a great option for traveling because it is light and easy to carry.
