There's a thin line to walk between comfy and classless at the airport. Travel days are not an excuse to be sloppy and even though your favorite pair of old sweatpants are tempting, they're better left at home.
The Zoe Report offered a few styling tips and we agree– for the most part. But we're taking their tips and making them new mom- and nursing-friendly. So please fasten your seat belts and stow away all other electronics while we show you how to travel– and arrive to your destination– in BURU style.
The Leather Jacket
A moto leather jacket can instantly make a more casual look become chic simply because of its structure and more tailored fit. This one from Walter Baker is a BURU favorite not only for it's contrasting colors and textures of black vegan leather sleeves and off-white denim, but also for how versatile the jacket is for each season. Not to mention that it can be paired with just about any pant, skirt or dress to create a polished or edgy look.
The Comfy Tank Top
Featured: Rachel Pally White Tank Top.
A high quality basic is necessary for comfort in transit. We recommend this super soft Rachel pally white tank (also available in black) because its jersey knit fabric is super soft and its loose structure is beyond comfortable. Plus, if your traveling with a baby, it offers quick and easy access with a simple pull down or lift up!
The Slouchy Pant
Featured: Julie Brown Elastic Waist Pant.
Just because you're leaving the old sweatpants at home doesn't mean you can't wear comfy pants! We love these elastic waist pants from Julie Brown because the silk fabric feels like butter yet their tailored so your outfit will look sharp. They might as well be sweatpants disguised as chic pants– you'll ever want to take them off!
The Long Scarf
Featured: By Malene Birger Irminada Scarf.
An oversized scarf is a must-have for chilly airplane rides because it can be worn around your neck, used as a blanket or even as a shawl. At your destination, depending on where you'll be, you can continue to use it as a shawl or scarf or, if the weather permits, as a sarong by the pool. By Malene Birger's Irminada Scarf is a timeless print that you'll wearing again and again whether you're on a plane or at home.
Taking off shoes at security checkpoints can be a hassle, especially when you're attempting to juggle a purse, your I.D., your ticket, your quart-sized Ziploc-baggied liquids and your traveling sanity. Which is exactly why the only thing you should be wearing on your feet is a quick on-and-off-then-on-again slip-on. This pair from Yosi Samra is a comfy slip-on disguised as a chic, printed loafer and will keep you flying in style.
The Tote Bag
Featured: Lolo Large Vinyl Zipper Top Tote Bag.
A tote bag is essential to flying comfortably because you need something big enough to hold the laptop, the book or magazine, the baby necessities, snacks and other personal items. For a travel tote, nothing can beat this Lolo bag because, aside from its simple but fun look, it has a zipper top so nothing will fall out when you stow it under the seat in front of you. Plus, it's vinyl. Which means should anything get on it, it's an easy clean up.
The Carry On Luggage
Should you choose to bring a bag to stow in the overhead bin, this is the one. It's the perfect getaway bag if you and the hubby are enjoying the weekend together and it's a great carry-on for those extras that didn't fit in the checked luggage if you're traveling with the family for a 10 day vacation. It's sharp, classy and can even be monogrammed with your initials. There's even a shoulder strap added for more versatility so that your hands can move free about the cabin to juggle your purse and baby.
