As summer inches closer, so do our vacation plans. With several trips on the horizon, I wanted to share my top three travel style must-haves. At the top of my list would be comfy clothes, followed by a large, sturdy tote bag, and then of course my favorite accessory of all, oversized sunglasses.
/ COMFY and CHIC /
One of the first things I think about before I jump on a plane or hit the road is comfort. Of course while I want to look chic while traveling, comfort wins above anything. Luckily, I found the most amazing cashmere sweater set from Rey Reina that I will literally be wearing on every trip. Not only is it super soft, it will keep me warm on those chilly airplane ride or from the blasting air conditioner in the car. The extra large turtleneck on this sweater can also be used as a hoodie and the back of this sweater is split open with a chic tie that allow for some air to flow through. I love that I can also wear these pieces separately and they are so effortless and easy.
/ LARGE TOTE BAG /
I travel a lot with my kids which means carrying endless amounts of snacks, wipes, books, and sometimes even toys (think LOL dolls and Squishies). Let’s not mention the laptop I also carry to do a little bit of work. My go-to tote is this Goyard Louis GM bag (this is the largest size) and surprisingly it can carry quite a bit in here. During every trip I think it’s going to be the last trip before this bag falls apart, but even after five years of major usage, there’s no sign of ripping. This is definitely a keeper and one that lasts.
/ OVERSIZED SUNGLASSES /
Hands down my favorite accessory are sunglasses (obvious if you’ve been following me for a while). When you want to hide a makeup-free face, jet-lagged eyes, or even just to look a bit extra, oversized sunglasses are the way to go. I’ve had this Celine pair for a few years and I love the flat top shape as well as the darkening lenses. The bigger the better when I travel, especially if you’re going somewhere tropical (other than hiding a no makeup face, they actually do protect from the sun).
So there you have it, my must-haves for a jetset style. What are your must-have to look chic while traveling and why? Please share!
You are looking so chic!!
I love to travel comfy too, so an oversized dress or sweater is just the perfect match. Love how you styled it with that tote, amazing look Christine!

Adore your Comfy Look , That sunnie is a dream:)

Wish you Beautiful Day
This cozy set is sooo chic and sophisticated! <3 🙂 I love how you styled it with those shoes! Such a perfect airport outfit!
In love with this look Christine, not only is it so chic and appropriate for travelling. But it’s perfect for us Mums, I can see myself being able to wear this and also being able to run around with the children. I couldn’t agree more with you, comfort is so important when travelling, especially on long haul flights. Your bag is perfect, over the last 6 years I have been using my LV Neverfull on repeat with the kids. These totes are so useful and the Goyard GM Bag has been on my wish list. Also the oversized sunnies are perfect for hiding any tired looking eyes 🙂
those pants are so perfect for travel!
This is such a cool and comfy travel outfit, you look like a fantastic jetsetter. I can definitely relate using a tote when travelling with kids.
This is totally what I wear on a airplane too Christine! I love how loose fit the outfit is and the quality is always so good. Never go wrong with cashmere set on airplane. Love the big Goyard bag. It’s perfect for holding everything on the road. You look is so chic yet comfortable.
Such a fab and cozy look dear! Really unique and chic style.

What is better than feel cozy and warm when traveling. Sometimes the airlines had a lot air conditioning so is better to keep with a lightweight cashmere. Your style is so cool and unstressed:) feeling free .
Love all accessories I never can get enough with your style
so chic!! So in love with this look!
I absolutely love your comfy outfit.
Especially the colors! Total grey is my favorite.
Such a prefect look for the spring!
I have seen this look when you first posted on Instagram and I was drooling over this cashmere sweater set. You look so good!! I love that you styled with the mules and that tote finishes the look perfectly. I am also same away, I want to look stylish but comfy at the same time! Not to mention that I’m always cold on the planes. The tote bag is the perfect size for holding a laptop and everything you have for your kids. Is funny, I totally forget how it is to travel with kids since my boy is old enough to travel on his own! Simply gorgeous!
You look so expensive! Obsessed with this head to toe. If this look doesn’t get you upgraded on your flight, I don’t know what would. I do NOT look this cute when I travel LOL.
Now, this is how you travel in style! I definitely think comfy, cool is definitely the way to go, especially on long flights. I ALWAYS travel with a big bag. It allows me to carry all the things that don’t fit in my suitcase. I’m the gal that always overpacks! I am also obsessed with your sunnies!
This set looks so comfy and chic!! This would totally be my outfit for the long haul flights!!!!! Actually I’m flying to Greece tomorrow and it’s gonna be a very long flight. I wish I have this set with me so I can have a comfortable sleep on the plane and look style at the airports!! Love your style babe!!
This is the most comfy yet stylish look for the plane EVER! Def taking inspiration for my next trip!
Pose & Repeat
You look both comfy and stylish! I don’t think I could ever accomplish both at the same time x
Same here, I like comfortable but elegant at the same time (not always the easiest combination to find). I’m a huge fan of oversized sunglasses, they add chic and a bit of edge to any outfit
I don’t think I’ve ever owned a pair of oversized sunglasses, but they add such a nice touch to a laid back look! Also in love with that loose sweater dress you’re wearing with the cowl neck. I only wish I could get away with something like this in Texas, but it is far too hot and humid to survive. Those mule slides are adorable as well!
I love this outfit. It look so comfy and chic I’d want to wear this all year round when it gets chilly. I totally agree about having a laid back travel look, but I do admit sometimes I don’t have room to pack a thick or large set of heels and end up wearing those instead – luckily always comfortable. 🙂 I often wear a snuggly piece for a flight because I feel so cold in the air and this piece is just so chic! Thanks for sharing. Have a great week!
This look is just so chic. Wherever you land wearing this , you’d definitely look amazing. I love the style and the colors as well.This is the perfect travel look.
I absolutely love this outfit! It’s so stylish, comfy, and elegant and it shows your great sense of style. The oversizes sunnies are the perfect complement to the entire look. This is definitely a chic look to travel in style.
Thanks for sharing girl and enjoy the rest of the week!
Have a nice week!
