9 Stylish Travel Accessories
19 Oct 2015
This is it! The last and best quarter of the year awaits us, where
festivities are fun and travels are often far. We’ve gathered the 9 stylish travel accessories to help you stay
comfortable while looking your jet-setting best!
Having just travelled on a wonderful short trip to Europe, I was
inspired to write this piece after observing how fabulously composed and
contented some jet-setters were on the plane, and once stepping off the tarmac.
They were winning. I was not and had a bit of style and comfort-envy, I must
say. But it’s hard to look good and feel comfortable when you are crammed into
a narrow seat for hours on end. The bright lights, announcements, crying
babies, temperamental temperatures and let’s be honest, neck displacement, can
make the journey quite sapping.
The solution? It’s time to rethink the way you pack your carry ons!
The Multi-Use Scarf
A scarf is an absolute must when it comes to traveling. Not only can it
be used to keep your neck warm but you can drape it over your shoulders or
squish it into a pillow. Take this cute printed scarf from Revolve Clothing,
the neutral colours match basically anything and it also doubles up as a beach
sarong for your summer escapes.

something that it is both practical and chic. This Great Expectations Wallet
comes in Italian black nappa leather and doubles up as a convenient travel
purse. You’ll never lose your travel essentials when using this as you can fit
your passport, phone, money and cards in this classy little package.

Flat hair, don’t care. Hide your humdrumb tresses with a fabulous Artesano hat! Started in Ecuador, Artesano offers handmade straw and felt hats that are beautifully crafted and timeless in style.

The Eye Mask
Give your tired eyes a break from all the interrupting lights and slap
on an eye mask. We couldn’t go past Grains of Beauty’s cute and comfy sleeping
mask which is made of 85% bamboo and 15% organic cotton. Most of all, it was
designed and hand sewn in the USA.

The Hydrating Balm
Created over 80 years ago, Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream has
received more than 115 awards and a huge cult following. Its nourishing
ingredients soothe and restore dry, chapped skin and can also be used as a lip
balm, cheek highlighter and eyebrow tamer.
Victoria Beckam, Natalie Portman, Cara Delevingne, Kourtney Kardashian
all swear by this balm as the ultimate skin protector. Even Prince Harry told

The Big Sunglasses
When it comes to sunglasses, as far as we’re concerned, bigger is
better. We love The Wyld Shop’s lovely range of Le Specs which are
fashion-forward and overall pretty fabulous. Sunglasses are great for hiding
your tired and heavy eyes while keeping you looking picture perfect.

The Waterfall Cardigan
For those chilly moments on the plane and once you have touched down at
your fabulous destination, having a cardigan like this one will keep you snug
while looking classy yet casual. Waterfall cardigans are especially popular
because the flowing fabric gives you a flattering silhouette while covers any
bulging parts on your mid-section.

The Travel Pillow
What we love about the Victorinox Deluxe Pillow is that it comes in an ultra-soft fabric, eliminates static (because no one wants to look like Einstein) and comes with a convenient little storage pouch which you can hang on your luggage or tuck away in your handbag. Yes!
