Hurriedly packing for a last minute business trip? Keep it simple by emulating these styling tricks from a few choice celebrities with an A-list sartorial sense. If you can muster the courage to rock six-inch heels a la Victoria Beckham while heading to the tarmac, by all means, do. But acting like a style superhuman is not always required. Pay attention, ladies and gents; these six tips could help you save time and weekender-bag space for more important things – like more clothing from your favourite faraway shops!
TO THE NINES
Young and all-business, Taylor Swift often sports dresses and comfy footwear while heading out of town. The lovely thing about this look is how easy it is to dress up for night by adding heels and clutch, both of which should fit snuggly in your carry-on.
LAYER ON LAYER
A mom of two, Jessica Alba knows a few things about multi-tasking. And she has multi-tasking her wardrobe down to a science. A comfy blazer goes from casual to all-business when paired with a sheath and structured handbag instead of your favourite pair of jeans. It will also keep you warm when your neighbour has the air on full-blast in flight.
Quickly becoming a style star of the highest order (we’re willing to forgive her rare beginners hiccups!), Jessica Chastain knows how to make sexy boots and a fabulous handbag do all the heavy lifting when she’s ready to jet-set… both of which will become stellar options when you’re taking meetings on your next trip to The Big Apple.
While I may not know everything about men’s fashion, it seems a short-sleeved dress shirt, as sported by Robert Pattinson, would make for a pretty comfy and business appropriate piece when on the move. Just add blazer, non?
SKY HIGH STYLE
The aforementioned Victoria Beckham is never one to disappoint when teetering in heels on her way through customs. But this outfit, complete with pj trousers and a structured vest, may be the most comfortably on-trend I’ve seen her look while flying the friendly skies. Pair the loose trousers with a body suit for a glam business dinner, or add on top of a work-appropriate sheath dress with an added style punch.
It’s no surprise that Victoria’s other half, David, also knows how to travel well, with the seamless male take on layering, including a dapper wool coat, boardroom savvy dress shirt and a gentlemanly crew neck sweater to complete this thought-out trifecta perfectly. Now, where are we off to, handsome?
