Even the most glamorous weekend getaways come with the inevitable airport shuffle. From security regulations to delayed flights, air travel puts our style and packing expertise to the ultimate test. After all, being on-the-go often means dressing to be ready for anything — and while part of us would love nothing more than to bum it out in our favorite college sweats (top-knots and all), there’s something undeniably chic about expertly-executed airport style.
Whether you're jetting off for business or pleasure, it’s the outfit you plan for the journey that sets the tone for the rest of the trip. In partnership with MICHAEL Michael Kors we’ve landed the travel-approved pieces that strike the perfect balance between style and function. Whatever the purpose of your stay may be, we’re breaking down the must-have essentials, from classic top-handle bags to statement boots.
No checked bag allowed? No problem. Skip the hassle of baggage claim and pack everything you need for your weekend getaway in something that we know for sure will never go out of style. Nothing says Effortless Cool Girl quite like this carry-all.
When it comes to traveling, we like to have the important things like our passports and touch-up necessities within immediate reach. Sometimes things are out of our control, but this top-zip bag keeps everything we need together. Sling this over an oversized turtleneck and it’s a done deal.
Speaking of running around, showing your feet some love is key to getting through those transfer flights. With enough height to fool even the most seasoned travelers, these boots are the solution to the comfort-versus-style dilemma. Pair them with simple joggers or polish the look with your favorite high-rise skinnies. Either way, your feet will thank you later.
Over your shoulder or atop the handles of your suitcase, when all else fails, the top-handle bag remains a reliable companion. Easy to dress up or down, this bag is the goes-with-everything accessory we’ve been dreaming about.
