Comfy, Stylish Outfit Ideas for Holiday Traveling

Take cues from these jet-setting celebs.

Traveling over the holidays poses an extra challenge of looking cute and presentable upon arrival yet remaining comfortable during the trip. How do you create an outfit that does both? Easy. Copy these celeb looks.

With their calendars full of appearances, promotional tours and extravagant vacations both in the U.S. and abroad, it's no surprise that celebrities are pros when it comes to travel outfits. Steal some of their styling tricks and impress everyone with your perfectly put-together travel outfit this holiday season.

Simplicity is key when creating an outfit for a long plane ride. Follow Karlie Kloss's lead by starting with a versatile base (white tee and black jeans), and then adding of-the-moment pieces, like a bomber jacket and sneakers, for a fresh, not boring feel.



Need the ultimate plane-to-party outfit? Opt for a patterned silky blouse and velvet block heels or flats like Emma Roberts did. Jeans keep the outfit casual for traveling, but you can easily swap them for a skirt for a dressier event.



A crewneck sweater and culottes are super comfy for a car or plane ride, yet still very classic and chic. Tucking in the sweater provides a slimming effect, and the sneakers could easily be swapped for heels or pretty flats. Constance Zimmer opts for minimal accessories, making for a quicker walk through security.



While LeAnn Rimes pulls off heeled boots like a pro, loafers or tennis shoes would be more practical pairings for hectic holiday traveling. Swap the sweatshirt for a blouse to go from airport to party-ready.



Jumpsuits are amazing for traveling. Take notes from Alessandra Ambrosio and choose a silky sleeveless jumpsuit for a streamlined-not-sloppy look. Those in chillier climates could layer a turtleneck underneath instead of a tee shirt.



When you want to look polished without much effort, always go with a menswear look. An oversized blazer adds sophistication and provides warmth, while classic loafers dress up jeans, as seen here on Dakota Johnson.



No time to change before a holiday event? Take inspiration from Jenna Dewan Tatum's look and wear your party outfit under a chunky knit cardigan. Then, swap the sweater for a blazer once you arrive. Or, skip the outerwear swapping, and wear a turtleneck under your silky top or dress for an even easier transition.



Can we put the lie about "not wearing white after Labor Day" to rest already?! Because nothing looks as effortless as an all-white ensemble in the winter. Example A: Gwyneth Paltrow in a cream fisherman's sweater with white jeans and white sneakers looking enviably laid-back and comfortable.

If you're meeting your S.O.'s parents over the holidays, copy this look from Ashley Olsen. Fitted black pants, loafers, a slightly oversized blazer, top-handle bag and turtleneck sweater are practical for traveling and create a sophisticated-yet-simple ensemble.



The ultimate travel outfit involves lots of layers and sensible shoes. Priyanka Chopra nailed it with her casual-cool look that's versatile and comfortable.
