We're going to assume that the majority of you are huge fans of travel. Personally, we can't get enough of it; but there's nothing worse than packing the wrong accessory, forgetting a precious belonging, or not being prepared for your dream vacation. Here's 7 must follow style tips for the traveling fashionista.
1. Give your hair a bit of volume and lift with a spritz of dry shampoo.
Dry shampoo is an undeniable life saver. For example, let's say you spend 6 hours on a flight from the east coast to the west. By the time you reach your destination, your hair is flat, oily, and anything but flattering. What do you do? Spritz a little bit of dry shampoo in your roots, gently massage with your fingertips, and watch as your hair is lifted and restored to new heights. This also works well in humid, tropical environments, as you can easily freshen up your hairstyle for an evening event.
2. Flats allow you to comfortably strut in style.
Flats seriously make life so much easier. Have you ever been at the airport, and you see girls who try to strut around in 6 inch stilettos with their luggage? Honestly, if you're a true jetsetter you know that this just isn't practical. Fifteen minutes in, and you've developed horrible blisters on your heels, which makes the rest of your trip painful. Now, we also don't suggest you sacrifice style, so stay away from sloppy sandals or gym sneakers. Instead, go for a versatile flat. This can take form in an ankle boot, a ballet slipper, or a casual tennis shoe. You'll feel good about your look, but also be able to move about the airport and your destination with ease.
3. Sunscreen is a non negotiable.
You've probably heard this one before, and will definitely say this is more of a life rule, but especially in travel situations, don't forget to take care of your skin. The last thing you need is a severe sunburn the day before a big meeting or event.
4. Heading to a tropical destination? Pack your LWD.
We're obsessed with the little white dress concept, especially if you're in a tropical destination. This allows you to show off your warm weather glow while still maintaining an air of elegance. Let your style be reflected in the type of little white dress you choose, but above all else, don't forget this key statement piece.
5. Take a quick photo snap of your belongings.
You're getting ready for your return flight home, and don't have much time to spare. However, the last thing you want to do is leave behind your designer purse, luxury moisturizer or favorite #JJ piece. Before you do too much unpacking, snap a photo of your belongings. That way, if you're packing up in a hurry, you can simply do a quick photo scan and compare that image to your current suitcase. Ease your mind with this quick hack, as you're sure to remember all of your belongings
6. Favor a dark washed skinny jean.
Who doesn't look good in a dark washed skinny jean? This look is literally flattering on every body type. When traveling, you want to be comfortable and don't want to overcomplicate your look. If you choose to go with a dark washed pant or skinny jean, you allow your creativity and expression to be highlighted in an accessory or top.
7. Now’s the time to sport your boldest accessories.
Ready to show off that Jupiter Jewelry gem? Now is the time. Pack up your favorite statement pieces and don't shy away from the bold. When you travel to a different destination, you insert yourself into a foreign community that's not your own. Make the most of this chance at a first impression with unspeakable style.
