Before I started traveling all the time, I NEVER knew what to wear while traveling or even when it came to packing for my trip. I would always tend to “over-pack”, or even dress in lots of layers because I never knew whether I’d be cold or hot and I kind of panicked at the thought of not being able to immediately solve that problem by bringing along a coat or shedding a few layers. The result was that I was always lugging an extra suitcase and one too many jackets or coats around the airport.
Now that I’ve had so many successful, adventurous travels under my belt, I’ve been able to develop a sense of “travel style”. I know myself and I know what my go-to pieces are going to be, and I’ve even had the chance to purge my closet for Juni, which helps me pack more purposefully with pieces I already know I’m going to love to wear on my trip.
Today, I’m sharing my three favorite outfits for traveling (whether by plane, car, train, or boat) and why you should make these your go-to travel outfits for your next big trip!
Keep it Basic
I’m a big fan of “basic” pieces because they’re so easy to pair; you can dress them up for a night on the town after you arrive at your destination or throw on some sweats to stay comfy for the road. Lately, I’ve been turning to a lot of our Juni products to stay comfortable, but fashionable while traveling, including this basic tee (available in white and a deep blue/grey), these Kan Can jeans, and usually a fun neckerchief to keep it classy.
Dress for Cooler Weather
If you’re traveling somewhere cooler or in an airplane - where I usually tend to get a little cold - I like to pack light sweaters like this one. They’re perfect for wearing on a cooler day without needing to bring an extra jacket, but as soon as the temperature drops even more, they’re light enough to wear under your coat without feeling like you’re going to burst out of all the bulkiness.
My Signature Travel Look
If there is one piece I never travel without, it’s this denim jacket. I’m a firm believer that everyone should have at least one denim jacket in their wardrobe. The magic of this type of jacket is that you can stay warm OR cool while wrapped in its folds. It sounds crazy, but something about that denim fabric helps me stay comfortable in a pretty wide range of temperatures, so it always makes its way into my carry-on or back seat as I’m driving to my next adventure.
It’s another one of those pieces that is ultra-versatile, too, so it goes with almost every outfit I may bring along on my trip!
