Rachel Zoe has airport style down to a science, mainly because she spends an inordinate amount of time jet-setting across the globe. Boarding a flight requires an extremely tight edit—regardless of how fabulous your accoutrements may be. Here, Rachel shares her go-to essentials—everything from her carry-on suitcase (Louis Vuitton, of course) to her in-flight moisturizer (two words: La Mer)—as well as a parallel universe if you want to get the look on a more conservative budget. If you’re planning holiday travel, consider this your style road map.
Rachel's Travel Essentials
Rachel swears by Charlotte Tilbury's 2-in-1 Miracle Eye Wand for its ability to transform your look, especially around the eyes when you're tired after a long-haul flight. To keep skin hydrated, RZ never leaves home without Honest Magic Balm and is recently obsessed with La Mer's new Renewal Oil that can be used on your face, neck, hair and cuticles.
On a recent trip to NYC, Rachel brought this androgynous coat she designed for her collection. The edgy leather detailing is airport-chic, and the topper doubles as a cozy blanket in-air. (RZ also always travels with a knit Missoni scarf for chilly flights.) Her bag du jour is the Chloé cross-body fringe satchel, which is perfect for travel because it literally goes with everything. Oversize Tom Ford sunglasses and a trusty LV carry-on pull it all together.
