If you find yourself running from a meeting to drinks with friends or spending all day touring without going back to your hotel room before dinner while on a trip, you should invest in transitional travel wear.
Travel Wear Pieces to Complete Your Day-to-Night Look
These five travel wear pieces for both men and women will instantly take your outfit from day to night.
Day to Night Looks: Boots
No matter the season, a pair of smart casual boots will complete any day to night look.
For women, look for a heeled boot or bootie, like Latigo’s Vivvy Peep Toe Bootie. The slight heel provides all day comfort while adding elegance to any outfit. Plus, the peep toe works in warm to mild climates.
Men should look for a slightly dressy but still casual oxford-style shoe. Rockport’s Wynstin Chukka Boots fits the bill with vintage elements and all-day cushion comfort.
An outer layer protects you from both the elements and air conditioning, and a jacket or cardigan is the best way to dress up a more casual day outfit. Nau makes great multi-purpose travel wear for both men and women—the line’s jackets in particular are a stand-out.
Women, check out the Boiled Wool Shirt Jacket. This layer is naturally weather-resistant and looks great with leggings, trousers, or jeans.
Men, the Transporter Jacket II is a great option—it has blazer-inspired elements and a water-repellent finish, meaning you can go straight from a client meeting to an outdoor beer garden.
Day to Night Looks: Jumpsuit
A trendy jumpsuit is the perfect women’s travel wear option for a day to night look. Just throw on a cropped jacket or blazer, and you’re good to go for the day—just remove for nighttime.
For guys, Mountain Khaki makes an awesome quick-dry button down shirt that looks like a dress shirt but wicks moisture from all-day sweating. Wear it under a blazer at work and then on its own for a casual dinner.
