    As you probably already know, you can be stylish even when you want to feel comfortable. Going on holiday doesn’t mean taking a break from style and elegance. You never know who you might meet in the airport or in the plane. It could be someone you are really interested to work with, or it could be “The one”.

    This doesn’t mean you have to wear high heels and tons of make-up. You don’t want to end up with swollen ankles, messy eyes and dry skin: an unworthy image of yourself! But equally, you should not close your style radar just because you’re on holiday.

    Your stylish uniform

    The crew has its uniform and stylish travelers have theirs. Always wear dark colors. A cotton jersey, baggy pants or boyfriend jeans and a comfortable cotton top. Take with you a cashmere scarf for a chic look or to wrap around your neck and shoulders if it gets cold.

    It’s also good to have a pair of big sunglasses. You can use them as an eye mask when sleeping, if you want to deter a talkative passenger or to hide fatigue and red eyes.

    Even if you’re a big fan of accessories, it’s best to avoid too much jewelry while travelling. It may attract attention and in some airports or cities this can be risky. It can also be annoying to others if it creates noise while they are trying to sleep.

    Other travel essentials are:

    • A big wallet, to keep your passport and tickets, credit cards etc.
    • Moisturizing cream
    • A toothbrush and toothpaste
    • Mints or gum
    • Your favorite fragrance in a small vaporizer, to apply discreetly after the flight (refrain from using it before stepping out of the plane)
    • Antibacterial wipes
    • A small mirror and bag for cosmetic basics (don’t forget the lip balm, especially for long flights)
    • A magazine or book to read

    Try not to overdo it when it comes to luggage. Don’t take too many things with you and only take bags you can handle by yourself.

    VELVETMaster the art of packing

    The content of your luggage must be as practical as possible. Start with shoes which you put at the bottom of the suitcase, preferably in bags, so as not to scratch other items, add your jeans, folded in half. Then put in layers the other items you are taking – trousers, sweaters, dresses. Put fragile things on the top, anything in chiffon with beads or sequins, and turn them inside out so as to not cling, you can even put these in plastic bags. Always unpack once you get there, this way your shoes and clothes will soon regain their original form.

    What to take with you

    Of course, packing depends on where you are going, for how long and, most importantly, the weather forecast.

    If you are single and plan on going on holiday, don’t forget to pack nice outfits for the evenings. Travelling with your loved one? You can always slip into your luggage some of your favorite pieces and small things to spice up your holiday. Going on a business trip? Definitely business attire that does not wrinkle easily and something elegant, in case your meetings are followed by dinner.

    Remember: Travelling in style is a duty to the expression of your own elegance.
