Black Cotton Dress
Travel Friendly Crossbody Bags


Comfort is key

There is nothing nicer than a soft cotton t-shirt for travelling in, but once you reach that destination any cotton items have lots of cons, they will keep every wrinkle, soak up every drop of sun cream, hold onto it for dear life and then refuse to dry! Similarly with linen, leave this exclusively for when you arrive at the destination as linen is a perfect summer holiday option with its breathability. So, think about other travel friendly fabrics like viscose. Viscose is a semi synthetic fabric, has a very soft feel, it is also very breathable, so it is cool and stylish for summer wear and all this makes it a perfect travel outfit option. Wide leg trousers are a big trend for 2023 and are the perfect travel companion for comfort and style. 



Blue Printed Cotton T Shirt
Denim Jacket



Airport or travel outfit success depend heavily on layering, especially when moving from one vehicle to another. When the aeroplane or train cabin temperature drops always have options to combat the chill. A versatile oversized longline cardigan will double up as a blanket for and nap possibilities and are perfect for throwing over your shoulders as temperatures drop on holiday evenings. A shirt that can be work over a vest top or dress gives you outfit options. A denim jacket thrown over your shoulders will finish an outfit and add a layer of warmth when needed. 



Summer Beach Outfit



Nothing is more comfortable when thinking about travelling long or short haul than oversized fits in tops , trousers , and blazers, this very on trend style lends itself perfectly to travel outfits ideas.
