5 Stylish Pieces for Fall Travel

Today's guest post comes from my blog friend Krisztina Williams. She runs a great lifestyle blog (links at the bottom) and is bringing her awesome style to us for some inspiration for your fall travel wardrobe.

When you need to pack for a fall trip, it’s about picking stylish pieces as well as pieces that can keep you warm and dry. You also have to account for the lingering summer weather - chilly mornings and potentially warmer afternoons. With a few key pieces, you can travel in style and be ready for the changing fall weather.

A shirtdress is a great transitional piece for early fall. A boho-chictunic dress, for example, looks great with either summer sandals or boots, and you can layer it with leggings or skinny jeans on a chilly day. For a more fall-inspired look, go with a long-sleeve denim or plaid shirt dress that you can pair with riding boots.

A sleek pair of dark wash jeans is something I always travel with in the fall and winter. They’re great with a summer tank on warmer days, and of course look great with sweaters and winter coats. They’re also nice enough to pair with heels and a dressy blouse for a night out.
I can’t make it through the fall without my knee-high riding boots, so I wouldn’t dream of traveling without them. They go with everything and come in handy during yucky weather. When I lived near D.C., they were the perfect pair of shoes for walking around all day in comfort as well as in style. I know they can take up a lot of space in a suitcase, so just don’t pack them. Plan them into your travelling outfit to free up space in your luggage.
I won’t go anywhere without my blanket scarf. In the summer it comes in handy inside cold air-conditioned buildings; but in the fall, it adds a nice layer on a chilly evening or if I’m on a boat or near water where it can get extra chilly. The time I took a ferry boat out to The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in NYC, my large blanket scarf came in quite handy. I try to find them in warm but light fabrics so they can easily fit into my satchel.



A sleeveless dress is another great piece specifically for travel if you know you might have some cold days and some warm days. You can wear a tank dress on its own with comfy flats, and you can also layer it with thick tights and a long-sleeve tee underneath.
