Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop traveling. We all know that traveling can be stressful, so sometimes we can all end up looking like we’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards. But now the airports have become unofficial fashion runways; everyone wants to make sure that they look their best while they’re abroad. So ditch that heavy foundation, grab your cute carry-on and get ready to take off with these tips for traveling in ultimate style.
Keep the Time
No one wants to be running through the airport, looking like a sweaty mess. So instead why not keep a sleek and unique watch on your wrist. A longtime classic in terms of fashion accessories, you may never need a timepiece more than you do when you’re traveling and it’ll help you do more than just make your flight. Check out these cool watches — a must-have for any stylish traveler!
Keep Your Makeup Simple
There’s no need to go full out, red carpet glam when traveling. Long hours and stale air are not great for heavy foundations, or any foundation for that matter. Recycled plane air is known to be harsh, so why not try a tinted moisturizer? It will keep your skin hydrated while also giving you a little bit of coverage if you want it. You will also want to chuck in your favorite lip balm to keep your lips soft.
It can be hard in the rush to get off the plane to find your bag in the overhead bin amongst all the rest of the items up there. A black bag, although smart, can seem a bit bland, especially when there are so many of them; instead find a bag with a colorful print that will stand out from the rest and will be easy to spot. This way, you can get out of the plane quickly and stylishly, without the need to fuss. Do remember that most airlines allow you to take two items as a carry-on, so why not take your new stylish backpack or tote bag for all your onboard needs such as your laptop, phone, magazines and plenty of drinks and snacks from duty-free.
Stick to Flats
Heels may make you look sophisticated in most settings, but if you have to speed-walk to catch your flight in time, you may come to regret so formal a footwear decision. But just because you’re sticking with flat shoes, doesn’t mean that they have to be boring. Consider some ankle boots or maybe even some sneakers like a fresh pair of Converse.

Chances are that when you get to security, you’ll have to take all your jewelry off, to avoid setting off the metal detector. So instead of going for jewelry that takes ages to remove, pick pieces such as long necklaces that can be removed over your head, or bracelets that you can take off without a difficult clasp taking up time.
With these tips you’ll always look stylish while strutting your stuff through the airport, without sacrificing comfort while you jump through all of TSA’s hoops.
