Not all of us want to travel with our pillow and stuffed animals (while wearing pajamas to boot)– some of us actually want to look presentable (and by that I don’t mean you should dress like the flight crew). I do like wearing comfortable clothes when flying but you don’t have to resort to Juicy sweatsuits or PJs; a soft cashmere sweater with leggings/jeans and boots are my travel staples (along with an Hermes scarf that doubles as my blankie on flight. And of course I like to carry cute travel bags. This season, Gucci has a fabulous vanilla cream leather travel bag with tan leather top handles (cuz the handles get worn out first) and convertible canvas shoulder/body strap. Contrasting double zipper pulls make it easy to open and grab your passport or magazine– a very chic (albeit impractical color) carry on bag! All I’m missing now is an excuse to go to St. Barts.
