Every time you see a photo of a female celebrity at the airport, she is almost always wearing a pair of leggings with a flow-y top and a pair of ankle boots. So what’s the key to looking stylish while traveling?
Leggings are a comfortable item that can be paired in many different ways and take up hardly any room in your bag.
It took me a long time to catch on to the leggings trend. I saw girls dressed in Uggs, leggings and short shirts and couldn’t help but think how unflattering it all was. But then I got my own pair and realized how versatile they are. Now I don’t go on a trip without them and usually wear them on the plane. My go-to plane outfit is a simple pair of black cotton Old Navy leggings paired with my slate ExOfficio Shirtigan and a scarf, pictured above.
Leggings are so versatile that you can wear them in nearly any season and on any trip. The key to making leggings look flattering is choosing the right top. With the look above, pair a bright top and a structured jacket.
For a more wintery look, put on a chunky sweater over a pair of black leggings with a pair of tall boots. Alternatively, you can throw on a pair of leggings under your pants to keep you extra warm while traveling, use them as pajamas, or to throw on when visiting a religious site. If you plan on exercising while you travel, you can substitute your yoga pants for leggings.
Styles of leggings vary from your basic black to funky designs and fabrics. Leather leggings are the newest trend because they look more like real pants than any other style. They also add more class to your wardrobe. You can also rock them in bright colors and abstract patterns.
Other outfit ideas include wearing an oversized men’s shirt and belting it, under your favorite travel dress or if you’re particularly daring, under shorts! Leggings make the perfect jeans alternative.
Just make sure you don’t leave for any trip without leggings!
