On The 6th Day Of Christmas…

Travelling In Style

December is one of the busiest times to travel. Whether you are making your way home for Christmas or jet setting off to a far away location – dressing for the occasion will make your adventure feel all the more special.

Yet there is no reason to sacrifice comfort on your journey. There are plenty of elegantly cosy and lightweight pieces that will have you looking quite the effortlessly stylish traveller.

The Blanket Scarf

Long flights are notoriously chilly, so a large scarf that can double as a throw-over is the perfect travel accessory. And a light weight cotton scarf is still appropriate if you are on your way to a warmer destination.

Silk Trousers

While silk can be a warm fabric, it is also light weight, elegant and a little luxe. Choose a silk trouser in a loose cut for a nonchalantly, glamorous take on traditional travel wear.

Sunglasses

Conceal those early morning dark circles with a super chic pair of sunglasses. Opaque lenses and large frames will add an old-world elegance to your travelling style. They can also come in handy for in-flight napping. Fall asleep with a little more privacy and catch up on your beauty sleep before arriving refreshed and gorgeous at your next destination.

Christmas Travel Inspiration

For a more whimsical take on travelling in style this festive season, be inspired by this fun editorial for Elle Poland. Love the statement sunglasses and gorgeous feminine embellishments…

My Ultimate Chanel Christmas Wishlist

Are you dreaming of a Chanel Christmas?

A Miniature Work of Art –
The Chanel 2.55 Quilted Bag

As much at home on your wall in a frame as it is holding your belongings; Chanel’s iconic 2.55 quilted handbag is still at the top of my Wish List.  Coco Chanel designed the 2.55 as she was tired of carrying her handbag in her arms and wanted to free up her hands. The 2.55 has since become a handbag icon; with over 30 new models created each year.

An Investment In Time –
A Chanel J12 White Watch

Immediately recognisable for its immaculately white ceramic look, Chanel’s J12 series has become a timepiece classic. Elegant, worldly and really rather grand, a beautiful watch can make any outfit or occasion instantly more chic.

Most Coveted –
The Classic Chanel Jacket

A classic piece is one you will still be loving and wearing when your granddaughter is old enough to covet it. What better way to describe the longevity of the iconic style and timeless allure of the Chanel jacket. And it is now the topic of a photographic exhibition dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld’s latest book, “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld”.
