Stylish Travel Outfit

With the holiday season on the horizon, our editors have already gotten a jump start, not only on planning their party looks but also planning what they are wearing on their travels as well. The perfect holiday travel outfit is, thankfully, not that hard to come by thanks to the endless Instagram inspiration from our go-to bloggers and street style muses. The key is to find an ensemble that is the perfect balance of comfort and style, all the while keeping you warm during these cold-weather months.

While leggings seem to be the usual uniform base of choice when traveling, the comfortable look we rely on as of late is made up of five key pieces: a neutral coat, warm sweater, basic tee (in the event of a super-warm flight or ride), jeans with a slight stretch, and a pair of trendy sneakers. In general, when it really comes down to it, think classic coats, cozy knits, lived-in denim, and lots of practical shoes.

To spark some style inspiration for your upcoming holiday trips, we've rounded up our top outfit ideas of the moment. Continue on to check out the photos plus some of our top picks for getting the looks.
