Comfy Chic Travel Style

If there’s one thing we seem to do during the holiday season more than eat, it’s travel. We visit friends and family, and—when possible—take ourselves on much-needed vacations to escape the chilly weather and holiday stresses. Regardless of where your travels take you this season, we wanted to give you some inspiration to create a comfy-chic travel style of your own. Scroll through the images to see the travel-worthy looks that caught our eye.

  • Traveling involves many different temperature zones. Climates can change from the airport, to the plane, to the pit stops along the way to your final destination. These layers are not only playful and stylish, but also functional—especially if you’re traveling somewhere cold! (image)

  • We love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s travel style—especially the comfy boyfriend jeans, feminine flats, and blanket-like scarf just in case the flight gets chilly. (image)

  • Add a big bag for carry-on items or for easy access in the car (this might be one of our favorites). The hat is especially helpful for hiding unwashed hair for an early morning trip—or even for disguising travel hair, which tends to look less than its best on-the-go. (image)

  • We love this combination of stretchy leggings, a button-down top, and a sweater with a hint of sparkle. (image)

  • Jeans work best for travel if they have a hint of stretch. Pair yours with a simple button-down top, flats, and a big travel bag—and you’re set to jet-set! (image)

  • Denim on denim with a pop of color is an easy way to mix comfort with style. A bold lip is a better travel accessory than jewelry —guaranteed not to set off any metal detectors! (image)

  • Alissa Futhey

    I love her style!

  • Lindsey Young

    These are all great outfit ideas for traveling!

  • Emily L

    These are great! I’m flying to London in January to study abroad, and that’s an 11 hour flight! I’m planning on bringing my giant circle scarf that can also double as a blanket :)


    • Natalie Lynn Borton

      Great decision :)

  • Laura

    Right in time! I am flying tomorrow on two flights… except there is a 7 hour layover between the two flights! Will definitely use this guide to help me stay comfy while still looking chic.

    • Natalie Lynn Borton

      Oh yes, the layover is killer! That’s why the comfy part is so essential :)

  • Amy Carsen

    I liked Rosie Whiteley’s travel style the best. Great look!

    I love the jeans.

  • notlie

    best street style.

    Speaking of the last tip, I love dressing ‘bohemian’ on flights to avoid all that security hassle- I stack all my wooden bangles together, & wear a printed scarf as a sash (so technically I’m still wearing jewellery & a belt, but it’s all metal free)! 😉

    the first pic, perfect, except if i’m cold, i’d put on boots or high socks. Also another comfy outfit to try, loose warm Cardigan, t shirt, jeggings, or leggings of cardigan is long, and booties, and scarf that can double as a blanket.
