Kate Moss, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Gisele Bundchen, these fabulous women spend their lives jet setting the globe. Yet somehow they always look super stylish, even in sneaky airport pap snaps. While most travellers are lamenting the lack of leg room or cursing the blindingly bright cabin lights, these girls are looking chic. But how?
With a few tips from the globe trotting elite, you realise travel style is a careful mix of functional fashion, cleverly concealed by eye catching accessories and outerwear.
Tip one: trust in the classic combo: jeans and a t-shirt. The celeb travel stars know comfort trumps everything, especially on dreaded long haul flights. These girls wear skinny jeans with a bit of stretch, coupled with soft, cling-free t-shirts.
Another tip? Never travel without a scarf. They add a burst of colour to distract from tired skin, plus they keep you warm under the cool plane vents. Look for soft, long styles in lush fabrics that won’t itch or irritate your skin.
The overcoat is your ideal travel companion; it's warm, conceals any mid-flight meal spillage, and never asks to share your arm rest. Choose a warm, wool blend as it keeps its shape in the overhead locker for effortless chic at your destination.
Flight insomnia? Never fear! Wearing sunglasses inside is more than appropriate at airports. Dark circles and bleary eyes are instantly hidden, plus they inject an air of mystery as you approach the arrivals hall.
Last up: the oversized hand bag. Carry-on rules say one handbag right? Make the most of your hand luggage, and choose an oversize tote for all your valuable must-have travel treats. By carrying just one large bag, there is no fussing with any extra laptop bags or ipad cases.
See? Stylish travel is easy! Looking sharp and trevelling light ensures a chic arrival moment, plus it helps whisk you through customs line ups.
