Be it a weekend getaway or a day-trip to the relatives’ place, jet-setting mothers go through a fashion dilemma. You often take buses, trains or flights where you have to cover a long distance and, quite often, you experience instances where you get uncomfortable in the outfit you’re in.
As a result, you need clothes and accessories that are not only stylish, but check the box for practicality and comfort. Keeping that in mind, here are some essentials you can consider before taking your next flight to ensure that you have your most fashionable journey yet.
Flats Are Your Friend
Although you’re inspired by seeing others head out of the terminal in pumps and heeled sandals, there’s a likely chance that someone is helping them with their luggage. On the other hand, managing a rolly luggage, laptop bag and an overflowing handbag all by yourself is quite manageable in flats – stylish flats, nevertheless. Consider a fresh pair of sneakers, ankle boots or slip-on loafers.
Core-Spun Support Socks Offer Style & Comfort
Compression therapy products range from hosiery to socks that are fashionable and comfortable with the added value of gradient compression. Such options combine advanced technology with spandex/nylon/polyester to create offerings that prevent leg discomfort, deep vein thrombosis and edema for travelers. Moreover, the socks are ultra-stretchy, so it will be easy to take them off and put them on again during your journey.
Indian Tops Are a Win-Win
The crowded spots and long queues can make traveling rather uneasy and tedious. A comfortable top is needed so that you remain energetic and fresh. Indian clothes are suitable for these situations. They come in various designs and are soft and airy so you get to make a style statement as well as stay in comfortable shape for an extended period. You can even pair some junk jewelry with your top; it will make you feel good through the journey.
A Cute, Large Bag Is a Travel Essential
No travel outfit is complete without a bag, but your standard diaper bag shouldn’t be your travel companion. If it’s a must for you to carry a diaper bag, make sure the one you get is cute and stylish. Monograming your diaper bag is one way to go about it, or you can just get that big bag you’ve been drooling over for the past few months (if your husband owes you a push present, this isn’t a bad option to hint away).
Cardigans & Hats Double-Up
Don’t forget to pack a cardigan and a hat for yourself. These can serve two purposes if you’re traveling with a toddler; the cardigan can be a jacket for you and a blanket for your baby. Nothing’s more soothing to the young one than when they feel at home without you having to struggle taking out his/her blanket. The hat can provide shade for both of you at the same time. A stylish fedora will turn heads without you trying too hard.
Last but not least, complement these picks with appropriate makeup. You don’t have to go full-glam (the dry air accompanied by bad lighting isn’t suitable for lipsticks and foundations), but just keep the makeup minimum by adding some balm on your lips and cheekbones.
