With even the largest names in discount and bargain basics taking advantage of “marrying” fashion with finances (in case you haven’t heard, Wal Mart and Vogue are collaborating to bring frugal fashion divas an acceptable yet affordable collection of “Hollywood Haute (Couture)”; the fashion focus for the (upcoming) year seems to be slanting toward (do I dare say the “traditional” concept) of femininity and style.

Designers are cashing in comfort for cache, and are “publicly” pleading for women (and men) to abandon their “easy wear” (from sweats to scrunchies) for more practical but polished ensemble, especially when traveling or taking that special holiday road trip.

Here are a few pointers for hitting the road in comfort and style.

1. >b>Easy, Breezy Fabrics: Choose comfortable, breathable, moveable fabrics such as cotton, cashmere, silk etc.

2. Jean Replacement Therapy: Remember, jeans don’t always have to hug (your curves); they can be classy but comfortable. Consider a pair or two of stretchy Lycra that move when you do and tend to be much less “confining”.

3. Up-do Dynamics: Replace your scrunchie with a more updated and “elegant hair pin or barrette. Think classic sophistication with either a ponytail or a quick twist fashioned in place for classically chic comfort.

4. Classy Cover-Ups: Always carry a nice cardigan or other classic-style sweater, pashmina, or shawl. Planes, cars, buses, trains, etc. tend to be quite chilly. And while you’ll want to “bundle up” without looking “under-dressed and over wrapped”.

5. Flat Out Fashionable Footwear: Even if you’re like me and generally more comfortable in heels, keep in mind, sporty shoes, sans heels make it easy to get around and move around, especially if you’ve got lots of walking to do or are in a rush. Consider soft loafer, driving moccasins or “trendy” but “classic” sneakers for putting your best foot forward.

6. Lighten Your Load: Instead of lugging several pieces of luggage, consider an ample sized tote that allows for your belongings plus some extra room for your purse. Make sure the piece is not only spacious, but also expandable, with a handle, wheels, and of course lock and key.

7. Smooth “Sailing”: Whether your driving, flying, or taking any other form of public transportation, interior (and exterior) conditions can be harsh on your skin. Make sure you have a small bottle of moisturizer or all-purpose cream easily available to ensure you are not just another face in the crowd.

8. Skirting The Issue: Skirts can be comfortable, and versatile. Consider a long skirt and a comfortable fabric for traveling ease.
