Travelling In Comfort is everything.
I mean everything and it does not mean where your seat is in the aeroplane. Comfort when travelling starts when you close your front door, find your way to the airport, negotiate check-in and security to when you board and sit for however many hours to your dream or not so dream destination.
Practicality works with comfort and while the aim is to include good looking and fashionable in the mix; comfort is key. I also want to travel in style, even if modern-day flights prevent that and what I wear makes all the difference.
One of the biggest challenges to my personal comfort is temperature. I am either way too hot but more often than not far too cold. So many flights set arctic conditions and provide nothing more than a nasty, thin cover up – if anything. Apart from a large cashmere scarf in my handbag, I have taken to wearing an oversized almost coat-like cardigan. It’s brilliant. Seriously.
This long length open fronted cardigan works not only to snuggle in but also looks fab over most outfits. Depending on the length of the flight, mine is either cashmere style pants and a thin sweater or jeans and shirt. The other advantage, it rolls up and is easy to carry if need be or doubles as a great throw.
I usually travel in trainers or flat loafer/mule style shoes in the summer; short boots in the winter. This cardigan is now going everywhere with me, despite the season on arrival. Remember when air travel was comfortable and a luxury, wherever you sat? Nowadays it’s up to us to provide the luxurious experience.
Of course, this piece is also a great addition to the winter wardrobe but right now I’m thinking travel. Lucky for me I am up in the air frequently, the joys of living in Europe make it far too easy; this cardigan is my new best friend.
I’m not quite sure what I did without it. Going anywhere soon? xv
