A Blogger’s Guide To Airport Style

Christmas week is fast approaching. For many this means last minute shopping, spending quality time with family, and hosting or attending parties. However, for business travelers this week can be filled with plane delays, red-eye flights, and layovers. The busiest time of year for travel requires more planning than usual. But through it all, we still want to look our best. Looking put together even in transit may seem like work itself, but we’ve got you covered. We’ve gathered the top en-route style advice from today’s most noteworthy fashion bloggers. Whether traveling across the country or around the world, these frequent flyers have devised their own travel tips that make the arrival gate look like their personal catwalk. We’ve rounded up our favorite pieces to show how the modern jetsetter travels in style.

Mary Orton from Memorandum says her airport style boils down to functionality. She relies on St. John Knits while traveling because their suits and jackets don’t wrinkle. They can be folded up to fit in even the most crowded suitcase, and upon arrival come out wrinkle-free, effortlessly chic and ready to wear. We especially love the Double face Cashmere Funnel Neck Coat. With its easy wrap design, and cashmere blend, it’s a luxurious coat that is impossible to ignore.

Effortless and chic – what style is all about. That’s exactly what you can find in relatively new designer St Roche. Fusing a new school femininity and modern edge with artisanal hand-crafted detailing and original textile design, it’s no wonder This Time Tomorrow‘s Krystal Bick had to include some pieces for her trip to Italy. We’re currently coveting the Wide Leg Pants. Effortlessly sexy, wear with anything pants are super soft and a dream to wear and care for.

Kick your feet up and relax with this season’s latest trend in footwear; velvet. From boots and pumps to flats and sandals, velvet is everywhere and in all shades. Soft pinks, deep greens, emerald blues, and a favorite of A Fashion Love Affair‘s Cara McLeay – burgundy. Lend your ensemble an alluring finish with Gianvitio Rossi‘s sleek velvet ankle boots. With its paneled design and deep hue, this is a versatile eye-catching look we can stand behind.
