PIECES TO TRAVEL IN
I often find that when travelling I revert to very casual and comfy clothes. That is all well and good when I have time to change prior to arriving at a destination but the reality is that I usually come off a plane or train and go straight to a meeting or event. The lack of time means that I need to be wearing something that’s good to sit in for hours whilst travelling but also formal enough for whatever I am attending.
Over the years I’ve built up a small section of my wardrobe which is stylish enough for meetings and events but also crease free and most importantly comfortable. There’s nothing worse than feeling restrained by a tight pair of trousers on a train for several hours or a pair of heels that make it almost impossible to run from one place to another.
Whether I’m jumping on a train first thing, catching a plane to London or heading to present at a meeting or conference, these are some of my favourite pieces to travel in.
I’ve learned the hard way that there’s no point in wearing heels when travelling. A few hours into my trip my feet are always in pain and I’m slowed down for the rest of the day. Instead I travel in a comfortable pair of flat ballerinas and, if I need them, keep a pair of heels in my bag. I try not to wear my more expensive shoes when travelling and instead opt for styles like these from ASOS.
I recently purchased my first leather backpack from Camridge Satchel Company and I love it. Although the specific colour and design is now sold out there are many more available, like this bay and dark brown one. It’s great for throwing everything that I need for the day in and is also easier on my back and shoulders.
