T-shirt, jeans and sneakers/boots are what usually come up in our mind when planning trips. Can we stay polished and glamorous on the way to our destination? Today’s featured fashion connoisseurs can tell us how in two simple steps:
First, add one statement piece to elevate the otherwise laid-back, plain look. Take their outfits for example: the black tee and ballet flats on Olivia Palermo, gray shirt and blue jeans on Rosie Huntington are basic pieces we all have and would wear to the airport. Instead of pairing the black tee with jeans or sweatpants, try a right-on-trend flounce skirt, it’s easy yet fashionable, also convenient to transform after you land. Similarly, instead of bringing a hoodie or sweater for a T-shirt-and-jeans combo, try a statement blazer or even just a well-fitted leather jacket, which will instantly polish up your look.
Second, using accessories strategically. Compared to delicate fine jewelry, a unique statement fashion necklace, like this arrow version, will finish off your look with style. You don’t need to worry about damage and the style will go great with all the outfits you bring. Also, think of accessories that are multifunction: A well-made designer satchel can polish up any outfit while fits all your essentials; An oversized sunglasses can ensure you look good without makeup while offer UV protection; A stylish hat can cover your bad hair while keeping your ensemble chic; A fashionable watch can make sure you leave on time while being a statement accessory itself…
