For a lot of us the holidays brings air travel. And while there’s no reason you can’t use the concourse as your personal runway, it’s helpful to keep in mind that travel is not always easy and bit of practicality in your wardrobe could save you a lot of headaches in the longrun. Follow a few simple tips and you’ll breeze through the airport in style (and comfort.)
Flats are ESSENTIAL!
Most of us don’t run on the treadmill in heels. So when your flight is delayed 2 hours and you have 10 minutes to get from concourse A to concourse F, you’re not going to suddenly become proficient in running in Louboutins. Flats offer maneuverability when you have to dodge those airline carts and race to catch your connection. Plus, they’re an easy off, easy on solution to the disrobing we now call “security.”
Maybe it’s an effort curb those cold germs that become so prevalent around this time of year. Or maybe it’s so the people in business suits don’t over heat. Whatever the reason, the airlines seems to be keeping planes at crisp North Pole temperatures. It’s hard to hold onto to holiday cheer, when your hands are too cold to hold anything.
Scarves are a great way to add warmth without adding excessive bulk. There’s a quick, easy way to accessorize and offer style and function.
But if you don’t want to go the scarf route, jackets are the way to go. If you can help if avoid the huge winter coats that call to mind adjectives like a abominable and fluffy. A well cut peacoat or a sleek leather jacket will keep you toasty on those freezing flight and ensure fashion fabulousness. Because who doesn’t want to look good when they fly?
If you check it, pack a back-up.
I’m always amazed by how much an great packer can get into a carry-on. Seasoned travelers can get their entire lives in a suitcase small enough to fit under their seats. If, however, you’re not one of those people and you’re forced to check your bag, make sure you pack some essentials in your carry-on. A change of clothes when your checked bag is in Boise and you’re in Boston might just save you from a Clark W. Griswold melt down.
Leggings will fit perfectly in a side pocket. And you can always stuff a spare pair of socks and an extra top in your laptop bag. Knowing you won’t be stuck in the clothes you came in can make a world of difference in your mood as you watch everyone else’s bags circle on the carousel.
Unless you have a friend with a G5 plane, you’ll be traveling with the masses. But that doesn’t mean you have to look the part of the weary traveler. Function within style is a must for those cramped airplane seats and the long waits in the terminals. Airports can be dreadful. Airport style doesn’t have to be.

Still haven’t gotten all your back to school purchases completed? Celebrities have been clammoring over the hautest backpacks to hit stores and I finally got my hands on one! Not familiar with Sprayground? Sprayground is an exclusive lifestyle brand selling deluxe backpacks and accessories. Conceptualized for the consumer who is consistently on the go and carries his or her life in a bag, Celebs like Nick Cannon, Waka Flocka, Jaden Smith & more can be found rocking their Sprayground backpacks and now they can be found in today’s hottest boutiques and retail stores in over eight countries.
Walk into any run-of-the-mill electronics store to outfit your DSLR camera or laptop with a bag and you’ll be met with a whole lot of drab nylon options. Put down the bulky cases covered with inexplicable plastic clips and opt for one of these chic finds that can easily double as your everyday bag. From perfect-for-Fall leather crossovers to timeless quilted purses, these camera bags will keep equipment safe and require no sartorial excuses.
The Michael Kors MK Monogram Horizontal Tote blends fashion and function, providing a great stylish way to carry around your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. This tote-style case in Michael Kors signature monogram print delivers a separate inner pocket to house your MacBook, as well as additional pockets for your iPad and iPhone.
With its quilted faux leather exterior and detachable crossbody gold chain strap, the Bossi Bag may be your traveling staple. The customizable padded inserts snugly fit a camera body, two-four lenses, flash attachment, battery, and your everyday basics.
The classic structure of a doctor bag meets our modern needs with the handcrafted leather camera bag by Etsy seller Lee Loong. This bag won’t hold too many camera accessories, but the design is great enough to use even when the DSLR is left at home.
Don’t let that fashion-forward structure fool you, theClaremont Crossover Bag is photography-focused. The nappa leather exterior and gunmetal hardware disguise a body big enough for standard Canon and Nikon DSLRs, a lens or flash, and clever memory card inserts.
Fashion has finally met functionality with this Kate Spade bag. You really can’t beat the on-trend violet-blue hue of the tote, but even better, the bag works as a cross-body — perfect for a hands-free commute or roaming the city after work without hassle. It’ll fit your 15” laptop and a folder or two, and it has a front zip pocket for odds and ends, but it won’t be able to lug around much more. It’s a Kate Spade so you can expect the finest materials (your bag won’t rip apart after a few months), but that quality comes at a high cost: $498.00.
