The outfit for a sensible road warrior is equal parts style and comfort. Hooded sweatshirts and sweatpants have gotten a lot cuter as retailers like Old Navy, Victoria’s Secret and Aerie now have plenty of “lounge wear” options that are soft, comfy and stylish. Don’t forget sunglasses and a baseball hat — the quintessential accessories for road trips.
If you’re headed to a wine bar, party or tasting, try wearing shades of merlot or cabernet. The deep reds will look sultry and they’ll also hide any splashes of wine or appetizer spots that end up on your dress. Also, pack a stain remover pen or wipes to quickly spot any stains. Give your outfit a festive look with cocktail rings or shimmery bracelets. Wear a burgundy lipstick that will be a bit unexpected and on-trend.
