    Blame it on the strip-down in airport security or crammed train seats, but dressing for travel has become unapologetically lazy — jet-setters in stilettos summon side-eye from every direction. As a result, the unofficial traveler's dress code involves some variation of leggings, a sweatshirt, and sneakers, which, we'll admit, are pretty darn cozy. But, there are plenty of sneaky-comfy alternatives that don't make you look like you're going to sweat it out in a SoulCycle class.

    We looked to Damsel In Dior's Jacey Duprie, a frequent flier and fashion blogger, whose travel-tested outfits go the distance (literally). With the latest goods from Old Navy's soft-dressing line, Duprie crafted looks perfect for every type of travel, from flights to road trips. And, while comfort is at the heart of each outfit, Duprie's sophisticated aesthetic proves you can make on-the-go ensembles just as polished as your Monday power suit.

    We can't promise you won't have to throw some elbows in the security line, but we can assure you you'll look good while doing it. Now, the only thing left to do is book that hard-earned vacation. Cue the Kayak search in 3, 2,...

    As for the accessories, a small but structured bag is perfect for holding your essentials without weighing you down. Then, slip on lace-up flats — the crisscross straps are not only a chic touch, they also keep your shoes in place throughout your trek.

    For A Breezy Ferry Ride
    Is your preferred method of transportation the more idyllic, cruising-through-water variety? You can still keep your travel uniform street style-worthy with ease in mind.
