Traveling can of course encompass many different things, ranging from driving to the beach to flying to another continent. Growing up, traveling meant extremely long road trips or flights across the country, for which my entire family would don oversized sweatshirts and the most comfortable shoes still deemed acceptable by the general population. However, as I’ve grown older and followed fashion trends and trendsetters more and more, I can’t help but to notice that celebrity travel style has forced us all to up our games. Realistically, I won’t be wearing my chicest look for a long car ride, but if your travel plans are more short-term and involve fun sightseeing and lovely locations like a beach or lake house, then why not travel in style? As long as your travel plans do not include a transatlantic flight or a multiple day drive across America, then you’ll definitely be inspired by this chic travel look.
This Fashionista utilized a trend that has stuck around for yet another year — the maxi dress. Maxi dresses and skirts are the definition of easy chic because they’re simple to style and quite comfortable, while also being very on-trend. This Fashionista chose a patterned maxi dress with a simple, no-fuss silhouette that is completely wearable for a shorter travel day. A larger crossbody bag is a fantastic travel accessory because it’s both practical and stylish. When traveling, it’s ideal to bring as few accessories as possible, so a bag like this is a great versatile option. She also wore a pair of simple, flat sandals with her dress, which are great for traveling because they don’t take up a lot of space, go with a lot of outfits and are easy to slip on and off. This Fashionista topped off her look with a straw fedora, simple jewelry and a pretty fishtail braid. A hat is another favorite travel accessory because it can stylishly draw attention away from car ride or humidity stricken hair.
One Simple Change: To maximize efficiency in packing for a trip whether short or long, it’s important to bring items that can be worn for a variety of occasions and times of day. This maxi dress is a perfect example of this because it works for a daytime traveling look, but can easily be transitioned from day to night with a pair of wedges, bold jewelry and a clutch.
