Six Essentials to Great Travel Style ~ Designing Gal

In my last post I shared fabulous travel style inspiration from some of the chicest ladies in blogging and entertainment (check the post out here). Today I am sharing my six essentials to great travel style:

1. Comfortable Shoes
This is a no-brainer. When you are running from gate to gate or standing in long customs and security lines you don't want to be uncomfortable in heels. Pack your heels in your carry on bag and wear these stylish options instead:

2. Lightweight Scarf
Whether you are traveling to a warm weather destination or not, a scarf is an essential part of your travel wardrobe. It will keep you warm in the chilly terminal and on your overly air conditioned flight, acting like a blanket (which is a better option than the ones they offer on the plane). Make sure your scarf is lightweight - this is not the time for heavy knit wool that will just weigh you down. Try one of these styles:

3. Loose Layers
Another great travel style essential is wearing loose layers that you can easily shed and tie around your waist as temperatures change. Stick with neutral tones and wear a breathable cotton tee or tank underneath. You can't go wrong with a cotton utility jacket, denim jacket or a lightweight open front cardigan, like these:

4. Casual Pants
Wearing casual, comfortable pants is another key to looking and feeling great while travelling. I've worn dresses on planes and inevitably my legs get chilly. A pair of jeans with stretch, leggings or joggers are great options and will always look stylish. I've also included a pair of jeans without distressing below:

5. Versatile Hat
This is a trick from the celebrities who are often hiding from paparazzi in airports. Wearing a hat can hide a multitude of things after a long flight... tired eyes, messy hair, and your identity (in case you happen to be a celebrity!). In all honesty, a hat can help you feel pulled together when you just got off the redeye. And by wearing your hat on the plane you can free up space in your luggage. Try one of these options:

6. Large Tote Bag
Last but certainly not least, a large tote bag with long handles that can easily go over your shoulder is a key piece to great travel style. Make sure it's strong enough to carry everything you'll need to get through your trip in one piece, including magazines, a book, a water bottle, snacks, a small toiletry bag, wallet, passport, travel documents, a pen, a tablet, smartphone, headphones, a cellphone charger, etc. I've found three options that are tried and true travel tote bags:
