Travel is coming back, which means it’s time to plan a fun getaway! Even if your summer trip is a day trip or staycation, it’s fun to get out of town and experience something new. On the other hand, you might be ready to get back to full-on travel mode and take an extended excursion off to somewhere exotic and far away. No matter what your travel plans are, it’s a good idea to start thinking about potential outfits.
Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in packing outfits to wear once you reach your destination, but can we take a moment to appreciate a good travel outfit? Let’s be honest – traveling in pajamas and looking less than presentable isn’t the move, and although you don’t need to be dressed to the nines while you’re on a train, plane, bus or in the car, it’s always a good idea to travel and arrive in style. And yes, you can do this while remaining comfortable! Here are seven cute and comfy travel outfit ideas for your next trip.
Athleisure is the savior of travel ensembles. If you’re traveling casually, it’s a great idea to keep your look athleisure-minded. Plus, this type of outfit is one of the easiest to put together. Start off with a comfortable pair of panties to wear under athleisure bottoms, like cropped leggings or flared yoga pants. Next, add a pair of cute, clean sneakers. From there, pick a fun top, like a long tank top that covers your butt or a crisp white t-shirt paired with a denim jacket. Add a headband, watch or earrings and you’re all set!
- Get Inspired by Yoga Wear
Yoga clothing is meant to bend, twist and stretch in every direction. No matter how you move, it’s meant to stay close to your body and move with you comfortably. For this reason, most yoga-centered activewear is free of buttons, zippers, clasps and buckles, which are also uncomfortable for traveling. On your next trip, consider wearing a pair of buttonless, zipperless black workout leggings designed for yoga. This way, you’ll be free to move any which way and stay comfortable. Pair your black yoga leggings with an oversized cardigan or blouse for a classic travel look. Elevate things by adding a hat, sunnies and a cute tote!
- T-Shirt Dress
Aah, the t-shirt dress. This is perhaps the pinnacle of comfortable travel wear. While linen dresses crumple and wrinkle, a t-shirt dress moves and stretches as you do, leaving you free of wrinkles, folds and the like. A t-shirt dress is a great travel option for all ages and sizes. It’s also the perfect travel hack for long or overnight flights because a simple maxi dress basically doubles as a nightgown! Work smarter, not harder and go for one of these cute and comfy dresses on your next trip.
- Jersey Skirts
If you want to shake things up and go for a nicer (but not uncomfortable) travel look, you might want to choose a skirt made out of t-shirt or jersey fabric. Much like the t-shirt dress, this type of skirt will be your best friend on your journey. For warmer weather, consider a lightweight, shorter skirt made out of cotton or another breathable material. If you’re traveling to a cooler place, go for a midi or maxi skirt to keep your legs covered.
- Go Monochromatic
Wearing all one color or similar colors instantly takes your outfit to the next level. This is most easily done by wearing all black or all white, but you can pull off this look with any color scheme. You might keep things monochromatic by wearing a pair of comfy blue drawstring pants (without zippers or buttons), a light blue t-shirt and a denim jacket. You’ll look effortlessly fabulous without having to spend too much time picking out your travel outfit.
- Mix and Match
Sometimes the key to a great travel outfit is reaching the perfect balance between nice and casual. To do this properly, think about splitting both styles in half and putting them together in one cute outfit. The result gives off world-traveler vibes even if you’re only going somewhere an hour or two away. To achieve this look, try adding a nice sweater to a pair of leggings or stretchy pants. You could also pair nice jewelry with a casual jeans outfit to take things up a notch. Mix it up and try different combinations!
- Romper or Jumpsuit
Here’s another all in one option that will serve as a great travel outfit for just about anyone. A one-piece suit is perfect for traveling because it makes it super easy to get ready, especially if you’re on a flight that leaves at the crack of dawn. These are also great because so many rompers and jumpsuits are made with comfortable and stretchy fabrics, which will keep you feeling comfy on the way there and super cute upon arrival.
