Travel Style dilemma:  You only want carry-on luggage to avoid checked bag fees.  How many outfits can you fit in?

The trick is to make what you have work twice (or thrice) as hard.  We begin with a basic travelling dress:  a fitted sheath in a stretch fabric blend for comfort.  The light ruching on the side adds soft drape.

Airport to Lunch

For the airport, comfort is key:

  • Throw on a knit, like this cotton capelet
  • Distressed leather shoes are surprisingly comfortable with the platform style and thick, rubber soles
  • Ballet flats work just as well and make it easy to put your shoes through security
  • The look can go straight from the airport to a lunch appointment or casual meeting.
For your evening look, 

Evening Outfit

  • Switch to a stretch, marabou bolero for packable, evening glam
  • A wide, accent belt cinches your waist
  • Black, suede booties with ruching and a bow finish the look
  • The booties can work the next day with black cigarette pants
If you don't want to accent your waistline, a long scarf wound around is flattering.  A structured blazer on top can also make your look office-worthy.

Geometric cut-outs on suede, peep-toes & buckles on leather
These are tried and tested.  I just came from a 3-day trip with workout clothes, 2 casual, 2 daytime and 2 nighttime outfits, all within one roller case.  Airlines can't keep you from being chic!
