The long awaited holiday usually begins with a journey. By plane, bus, train or car. For hours you put in the same position. On the way to your dream destination. Often the journey – how uncomfortable too – in itself a celebration. You see things unknown, unknown people met … And of course want to look stylish. Here are our tips to (apparently) fresh, trendy and equipped at the place of destination to arrive.
For a practical outfit
Jeans with a shirt and a flowing jacket is the perfect outfit for the shorter trips. Good nail does not crease and is always and everywhere trendy. A shirt with a vest over it, and maybe even a matching cotton or silk scarf, is more practical than a sweater because you depending on the temperature or can pull something out. In this outfit you will neatly at the destination to.
You fly or travel long time, then a pair of jeans is often unwise. Jeans can pinch and impedes circulation. Choose in this case where flexible clothing rack in it (preferably no synthetic materials). On long haul is a jogging suit. By the time you approach the destination, swaps in the toilet of the plane or train your jogging pants for a trendy pair of jeans (that you had in your hand luggage with you). Caution! For operations that is over twenty minutes before landing the “fasten your seatbelt’ characters all enter. Keep this in mind.
Another solution is a flowing skirt (with top) or dress that does not crease. Personally I prefer sleeveless dresses and tops (if you choose a skirt). You do not suffer from perspiration stains. Keep a jacket handy in case it is cool. Note also that you always ‘clean’ sits down to prevent wrinkles (smooth ironing the fabric before you take your seat).
Large, fashionable bag … No plastic bags or backpack!
Take as a single large hand bag. More and more trendy brands come with handy travel bags (or suitcases!) With many pockets (for your passport, your wallet and your mobile phone). Such a stylish travel bag is not only practical, but makes your travel outfit. Keep it in a bag or else you’ll still look messy.
This means that the bag wide enough for the toiletries you during the journey need (for air travel restrictions!), The handbag that you normally carry with you (does not in your travel bag, remove all the stuff looks like and grab your bag in your suitcase), a clothing exchange (see above jeans) for your sunglasses, your music, a book and a magazine. Even small purchases at the duty free shops may have the bag.
The advantage of a bag is also good that you should consider what you can and not checked by hand (less weight) and you have more control over your stuff.
Avoid backpacks (unless of course you’re going to pull). Not only do they not real (not really!) For a stylish look, but they are often a nuisance to fellow passengers. How often do you punch the bag not against them without your really in need?
Sneakers / ballerinas
A pair of trendy sneakers and ballerinas always do well under jeans (our basic style of travel). Wear sneakers with socks so you can easily make your shoes and no cold feet in the air conditioning gets. Choose to be a ballerina’s, then pick up a pair of socks in your travel bag. Avoid flip-flops or open shoes because your feet are exposed to these injuries. Avoid high-heeled shoes because they are not very comfortable (you do not want thick, swollen ankles arrive) and travel as often simply dragging heavy suitcases means. Incompetence in high heels is not exactly elegant.
Avoid (or hide) eyestrain
Applies for lenses, remove your lenses and put your glasses on. The air conditioning in most vehicles (especially in the plane, but also in the car and the train) often causes bloodshot eyes (not really sexy!). Put your lenses by the time you arrive the destination, again. Make sure that you go – especially if you suffer from your eyes – oogdruppeltjes with you. and – very important – a trendy sunglasses. For tired eyes upon arrival to hide behind. Practical and stylish!
A fresh skin
Again the air (and the cabin of the aircraft) back the big culprit. Protect your skin from drying out by the evening before leaving your skin with a moisturizing facial care. Avoid traveling during the foundations powder and other powder-like make-up. Do not you want the door without basis, choose a liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer. Keep the rest of your makeup light. A touch of mascara and some lip gloss. Apply regularly during the journey a moisturizing cream or refreshing spring water spray in your face (these sprays if such sale). Do not forget a lip balm from drying out the lips. Stop foundation, eyeliner, blush, mascara and lip gloss in your bag and fresh makeup on it by the time your destination is approaching.
Go for a simple haircut
Take care of your hair before leaving with a leave-in conditioner (protects against dehydration). Keep your hair loose during the journey (a ponytail would only be difficult and can deliver your neck). Do you have long hair, tie it just before you arrive in a simple but neat ponytail together. Cultivated and trendy, especially if you put your sunglasses in modern bears.
Some practical observations
* Will you fly, keep the restrictions on liquids, gels and aerosols are in mind. You ask in advance what you expect to need during the trip in order to arrive fresh. The bottles and cans you bring, less than 100 ml. The packages contain more than 100 ml, remember smaller (or refillable) bottles to buy. (Monsters of the perfume – especially perfumes – are also very handy)
* Avoid during the journey as much as possible the consumption of alcoholic drinks and coffee. Alcohol and coffee diuretic work while your body during the journey precisely to protect against dehydration.
* Fly you towards a destination in another time zone, try right time at the destination to include. Set your watch when you coming in and adjust your plane right on the pace from there. Fly during the day to the east, try to sleep as much as possible. Fly to the west during the day, make enough distractions to stay awake. The attendants usually give the rhythm does. By you to stick to it, you will not be overwhelmed by the arrival time difference and you reduce the effects of jetlag.
