Celebrity Secrets for Traveling in Style

Sunglasses, check. Seasonless layers, check. Comfortable chic shoes, check. Dressing for travel is an art, and celebs like Rihanna, Rachel Bilson, Nicole Richie, and Charlize Theron who spend a lot of time on airplanes, are masters of traveling in style.

The key to perfecting your travel ensemble is to be prepared:

  • Expect fluctuating temperatures which makes layers key.
  • Make sure there isn’t too much skin-to-seat contact (who even knows how often those airplane seats get cleaned?)
  • Bring a roomy, convenient bag (think cross-body) for snacks and other essentials.
  • Wear clothing and fabrics that are comfortable enough to sit in for a few hours without looking like a wrinkled mess when you get up.
  • Opt for a relatively dark color palette (why risk getting covered in pretzel crumbs without knowing it?)
