How to Travel in Style

So, two weeks until I go to Chicago, so I need some travel tips! I'm all about being a traveler and not a tourist. Here are some tips from The Style Bar.

  1. Roll or Fold? If taking a soft case roll your clothes, if you have a hard case then fold clothes in the middle and roll things like socks and underwear so they can go down the hard-to-fill sides. This also stops things moving in transit.
  2.  Know where you are going. Study the map before you leave the hotel in the morning – then you will step outside and know exactly where you are going – walking in a business-like manner/looking like you are in a hurry is great too – esp on the transport system- everyone will assume you are as frazzled as they are on your way to or from work.
  3. Dress up a little. During the day – jacket, nice pants, comfortable but on-trend shoes. Think: how would I look back home for a day of shopping? This will take you nicely into the early evening if you decide to stop and have an aperitif and a bite on the way back to your hotel.
