Womens Sleeveless Stretchy Blouse, Sizes S-3XL


Sleeveless Blouse


A simple, sleeveless blouse is another staple. With its comfortable feel and sleek look, a piece like this will take you from the tarmac to tapas in style. The black sleeveless blouse shown above is offered in a variety of different colors!

Made out of mostly rayon, this is a travel-friendly fabric that’s less likely to wrinkle. This timeless piece is also free of embellishments which can be irritating while en route to your destination.

Spanx The Perfect Pant Back Seam Skinny Ankle Pants


Comfortable Pants


It’s not often that a pant is designed with travel, practicality, AND fashion all in mind. The Perfect Pant pant by Spanx is by far our favorite exception. Hailed high and low as one of the best pants for travel, we can’t think of a better piece to include within your wardrobe. Take these on a red-eye and start the next day in both ease and style.

Camper Women’s Wanda Ankle Leather Boot


Sturdy Ankle Boots


There was no way we could suggest the ideal cold-weather outfit without the Wanda boot from Camper. This is a FANTASTIC shoe for travel (waterproof, cute, versatile—what’s not to love?). We love how easy it is to slip this boot on and off.

They are perfect for giving your feet a nice stretch once you’re seated and settled. Plus, if you get cold easily, the lining is made of a super warm material, too!

The pieces combine urban trends with some fun flair, which makes it an easy year-round staple. Best of all? You can keep flaunting it (and various renditions of it) throughout your travels.




Style & Co Women’s Twill Jacket


Softly Constructed Jacket


Another favorite from fashion brand Style & Co, this Twill jacket is the perfect mix of practicality and style. It’s lightweight and functional while also showing off the trendy utility jacket look. Available in a variety of neutral tones, this piece will work beautifully with your travel wardrobe.

We especially love this jacket for flying to a warm-weather destination that may occasionally experience a gust of cold air.

NYDJ Ami High Waist Skinny Jeans


Skinny Jeans


Is there anything more essential than a great pair of denim? We’ve shouted it from the TFG rooftops, and we’ll repeat it—dark wash skinny jeans are a travel fashion must! These NYDJ skinny jeans definitely meet our standards. 

They’re a universally classic piece, so you might as well work them into your travel ensemble. Wherever you land, you and your look will both be fabulous.

Lisianthus Belt Buckle Fedora Hat


Fedora Hat


We also love a fabulous hat, and this fedora from Lisianthus is an accessory worth taking on the plane with you. Generally, packable hats are great for weather protection or as a funky complement throughout your travels.

The Lisianthus can keep your head warm, and the sleek belt buckle adds a bit of polish. This fedora hat is a keeper!

J. Crew Juliette Collarless Sweater-Blazer, Sizes XXS- 3XL




If you don’t have to worry about packing an entire coat, this J.Crew sweater-blazer will leave plenty of space leftover in your bag for other travel goodies. We love how chic and structured this piece is and it’s offered in multiple colors to suit any style!

Naturalizer Jessie Knee High Riding Boot


Tall Boots


You can’t go wrong with leather tall boots in classic black. Naturalizer’s riding boot revitalizes the equestrian look into a commanding, empowering vibe. We sure adore the way they feel and incorporate into a travel look!

For extra comfort, sneak a pair of compression socks underneath. And these boots can be slipped on and off, so you can relax your footsies at any time!

Printed Blouse

If a plain blouse isn’t your cup of tea, finish off the look with a cute, printed piece like this one from MAKEMECHIC. The check pattern in a classic black and white is a great way to add some geometric fun to your outfit.  

The top above is lightweight, comfy, and an easy way to make a statement as you’re off to your next destination.
