How To Travel In Style, According To Instagram

We've checked in for our flight. We've poured all our liquids into eight-ounce containers. We've already decided what magazines (and chocolate bar) we're going to splurge on at the newsstand. We've scratched all the items off our holiday travel to-do list, so now it's time to sit back and relax with those small upgrades we've allowed ourselves to make the experience feel a lot smoother. And, we're not the only ones decked out at the airport terminal. Our favorite bloggers are always on the go — whether it's across the country or across the world for projects, fashion weeks, or some good ol' down time. And, because they're frequent travelers, they've devised their own little hacks to smooth the travel process. Sturdy carry-ons, spacious duffel bags, and Instagram-worthy passport covers are but some of the little luxuries they take onboard. See how the fashion crop travels in style.

Jean of Extra Petite boils it down to the essentials: flats she can slip on and off easily at airport security, a boxy tote that holds her tablet and other in-flight essentials, and a rolling bag that holds a vacation's worth of clothes in an overhead-bin-friendly space.
Kick back and relax — isn't that what traveling is all about? Liz Adams of Sequins and Stripes keeps her footwear practical for an escape from the city. We think her Clare V. tote bag is quite the travel companion.
Margaret Zhang is a blogger, stylist, photographer, and student. Given her multiple professions, she's always on the move. So, Zhang has perfected the stylish-yet-practical travel look: plaid shirt with ripped boyfriend jeans, topped off with a cape to accommodate for finicky cabin temperatures, and a spacious tote to fit everything she didn't want to check.
Chiara Ferragni is the Carmen Sandiego of the blogosphere: It's hard to pinpoint where exactly in the world she is at any given moment. Despite her familiarity with the layout of most airport terminals, Ferragni's travel style doesn't let up. Decked out with Louis Vuitton luggage, she transports her enviable closet to and fro, while opting for a simple silhouette of jeans and flats while in transit.
You need sturdy luggage, carryall totes, and slip-on shoes. But, another crucial accessory for headache-free travel is a pair of noise-canceling headphones. Julie Sariñana doesn't go anywhere without her white Beats — because, during peak holiday travel, the odds of you being next to the crying baby on every flight are just so much higher.

If you're going to be staring at your feet for a couple of hours, you might as well make them look adorable. Julia Engel adds cuteness to the holiday hustle with some cat-tastic Charlotte Olympia flats.
Noor De Groot carries the world on her wrist, quite literally, with a thematic map cuff. Nothing gets you in the travel spirit like a reminder of all the places you could venture to.
