It may sound hyperbolic, but your choice of clothes can make or break your travel experience. Our pick of travel-appropriate clothing will keep you on the mark, whether you’re on a long flight or travelling by train:
 

Roomy Pants

Roomy Pants

The best trousers for travel are those which give you ample breathing space for long hours. Choose from harem pants, culottes, roomy shorts or loose-fitted pants. If you’re a denim girl, pick a pair of boyfriend jeans. Separates in solid, dark colours like black, navy, purple, or maroon can be paired comfortably and don’t stain easily.

Cover Up

Cover Up

Whether you are travelling by flight or the train, the AC might overwhelm you after a while. Make sure you always carry a cover up. A light sweatshirt or pashmina stole will keep you cosy no matter what the temperature around is. Besides, the warmth will put you into snooze mode faster.

 

Dress Up

Dress Up

Though they may not allow as much movement as trousers, dresses can make for extremely comfortable travel wear particularly for flights. Steer clear of body-hugging silhouettes or voluminous layering. Instead look for fluid cuts and light handlooms that sit lightly on your curves—midis are great for travel.

 

Comfy Shoes

Comfy Shoes

Sturdy slip-ons with medium to thick-soles are ideal for travel. Comfort doesn’t have to come at the cost of style—a low platform combines ease and style. Wear closed shoes only if they are easy to slip in, like ballet flats or loafers. Lace-ups and complicated buckles can be cumbersome on long travels.

 

Modern Desi

Modern Desi

Go ethnic and wear a salwar-kurta, a.k.a Piku’s Deepika Padukone. Look for loose bottom wear and tunic-style tops that won’t stick uncomfortably to your skin after a few hours. Update the look with a modern cut and you’ll stand out at any airport in the world.
