Four Stylish and Comfortable Road Trip Outfits

You guys, I don't know if I'm going to be able to wait the next two weeks; I'm feeling those road trip vibes! Later this month I'll be packing my bags and heading down to Virginia. I am so excited for a weekend visiting my alma mater for the first time in five years! Last week I shared my packing printable and since then I've been dreaming up all the different outfits I can wear. I must be a tad bit crazy but I really like planning out what I'll wear when I go away. Now I understand that you might not be like me with your outfits picked out two weeks in advance. While talks of road trips conjures sweatpants and cheetos (again, just me?) there is no reason you can't look put together while on the road. I actually prefer to wear an outfit when I'm travelling. When I'm put together I'm much more likely to convince my husband to take the exit for a small town rather than slump around the rest stop. Who knows what you'll discover when you go off the beaten path?

You don't have to overthink road trip dressing to look great behind the wheel or in the passenger seat! All it takes is a few key pieces. I have four comfortable, stylish, and super easy outfit ideas for your next road trip.

Four Stylish and Comfortable Road Trip Outfits

Plaid + jeans + funky sweater

If you buy anything this fall, get a plaid shirt. So fall, so comfortable, so easy to pair with jeans and still look like you're trying. When you're on the road, pack some layers. Instead of the old college sweatshirt, find a fun sweater or patterned sweatshirt to throw on top.

light blouse + boyfriend jeans + moccasins + long cardigan

Again, it's all about the layers! You can find great printed cardigans to go with just about anything. Also moccasins are the perfect road trip shoe: easy to slip on and off and incredibly comfy! These are my road trip shoe of choice since 1990 though I've upgraded from the white leather.

chambray + jeans + comfortable booties (my choice is always Minnetonka's trampers)

Did you know chambray looks good with just about anything? There's no need to worry about the "Canadian tuxedo" look; just pair a lighter denim on top with a much darker tone on the bottom.

tunic dress + leggings + boots + jean jacket

Some people don't feel stylish unless they're wearing a dress. If that's you, pair a tunic dress with a pair of leggings and boots and you're good to go, literally. I always choose a light cotton option for fewer wrinkles and more comfort.
