One of the busiest travel days of the year — November 27 — is right around the corner. Did you know it’s expected that 2.42 million passengers will be heading to the airport?
And although I’m all about being comfortable when I’m traveling, that doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish while doing so. From opting for a stylish embellished sweater to a colorful carry-on bag, here are 7 simple tips to help you travel in style this holiday season.
Wear Comfortable Shoes 1 of 7
I'm all about being comfortable and stylish. When it comes to shoes, keep in mind you might be doing a lot of walking at the airport. Wear shoes you can easily slip on and off while going through the security check. These two-tone riding boots are super stylish and look like the more expensive Chanel version.

Skip the Sweatpants 2 of 7
Although it might be tempting, opt for a pair of worn-in jeans or leggings, which can be equally as comfortable as sweatpants.
Bring a Stylish Sweater 3 of 7
Airports can get really cold, but instead of any ol' sweater, look for sweaters with embellishments or graphics, which are all the rage right now.

Wear a Hat 4 of 7
Cover up messy hair with a stylish hat. I particularly love slouchy beanies like this one. It's chic and hip in one.

Pack a Chunky Knit Cardigan 5 of 7
A chunky knit cardigan not only looks stylish, but it can also double as a blanket on the plane. I love this one from H&M.

Look for a Trendy Carry-On 6 of 7
Black luggage can be pretty boring (according to a recent survey from T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, 58 percent of people own a black luggage, so instead opt for one in a bright color. I love this one in a fun bold hue mixed with animal print. It's sure to stand out from the bunch.

Moisturize Your Skin 7 of 7
Your skin can become really dry from traveling, so make sure to pack yourself a good moisturizer. And don't forget your lips either. Have a good chapstick on hand, too.
