Have you ever hopped on a plane knowing you will need to hit the ground running as soon as the wheels touch the tarmac? There isn’t time to clean up at the hotel so what you wear for travel needs to be comfortable, professional and stylish. Here is a fool proof way to make sure you are ready to tackle anything from boardrooms to coffee meetings without having to change attire.
- Choose neutral pieces for your base that you can build upon. Reach for one or two of those “fewer, finer” staples from your wardrobe that are simple and classic. Think LBD, silk top, or clean lined joggers. Aim for fabrics that hold their shape and resist wrinkles. You can never go wrong with all black everything.
- Pick a shoe that is as comfortable as it is chic. A nude ballet flat or cute tennis shoe are great options. Don’t think heals are the only footwear that says “professional.” You can always swap out your flats for heels in the airport bathroom if the occasion calls for it.
- Carry a statement handbag big enough for all of your travel essentials. Water bottle, snack, computer, and magazines should all store neatly away. Our Oxford Tote is the perfect choice coming in a variety of colors and made with the finest ostrich leather. This bag is sure to elevate your basic pieces to the next level.
- Add accessories to create interest. A scarf can be layered on to break up your neutral basics. In the spring and summer, pick a lightweight scarf like those in our Gwynn collection, that will tie everything together and add a little splash of color. Reach for simple jewelry that can enhance your outfit while adding a little bling. Soko offers up numerous ethical and affordable options. The petite bow earrings and split moon cuff are staples no one can resist.
