Comfort and Style On the Go

When it comes to travel, comfort and style are sometimes viewed as mutually exclusive. But is it possible to have both? Absolutely. Continuing our ongoing partnership with Zappos, read on for some simple tips for style on the go.

Keep it simple. When traveling, it’s best to remember that simple is always stylish. Sticking to some well-fitting basics will ensure you’re looking good on the go. Favorite white button-down? Check. Slim dark denim? Check. Lightweight coat that works dressed up or down? Check. I love the subtle leather detailing under the collar, by the way.

Keep it versatile. When I’m traveling, there’s usually something I’m required to do – dinner, cocktails, an event – when I arrive. Often this means I won’t be able to wear what I’m comfortable traveling in later that evening. Here, again, is where sticking to the basics always works in your favor. Slim dark denim should be a wardrobe staple. Looks good paired with a simple white button-down and transitions easily to night with the addition of a navy blazer.

Keep it comfortable. Comfort and style don’t always go hand in hand but they should, especially when it comes to travel. It can be tempting to “dress to impress” when we’re on the go, but always wear what you know to be comfortable when traveling.

Have the right bag. A big key to style on the go is having a functional and great looking bag. Traveling between Baltimore and NYC as much as I do, a medium-sized duffle, like this handsome one from Herschel, always does the trick.

As I mentioned in our first post in partnership with our friends from Zappos, there’s so much more to the online retailer than shoes. Whether it’s style for the office, or style on the go, they’ve got you covered from basics to accessories and more. Stay tuned for the next installment!

    I’m traveling with 2 Herschel bags today, and now that I’ve started to use them – I probably won’t be traveling (light) with anything else.

    I have that same duffle in Herschel’s select series. Its awesome, same great look but with a few upgrades like metal clips and zippers. The perfect weekend getaway bag.
