Zappos.com, the online leader in clothing and apparel, offers suggestions to help summer travelers stay comfortable and look stylish getting to their destinations. Whether travel involves car trips or going by plane, these helpful travel tips will help make the journey smooth.
Look for a bag that has space for travel essentials: space for a water bottle, inner pockets for a cell phone and other gadgets, room for reading material, a sweater or wrap, and a few deep outer pockets to tuck boarding passes and other important travel documents. Air travelers should look for a bag about 11 inches tall, so it will sit upright under a standard airplane seat. A tote or structured bag is preferred for travel, so it wonâ€™t slouch and let the contents fall out.
Layers are always a good idea for traveling. A wrap or cardigan can ward off air from a chilly vent or act as a makeshift pillow. Sprayed lightly with a favorite scent, it can work as a discreet barrier against undesirable airplane odors. Cardigans purchased in a neutral color or coordinated with other items of clothing are among the most versatile clothing items a traveler can have in her wardrobe.
Easy-on, easy-off shoes are a must, especially if summer travels involve flying or hitting the road for a family vacation. Kids can help keep the car clean by taking their shoes off after rest stops, and slip-on flats make that easy. Airport security is a breeze in comfortable sandals or Velcro-closure sneakers.
