Recently, while waiting for a flight back from NY Fashion Week, we stopped to really look at what people were wearing at the airport. While we always make mental notes on footwear we see in passing, this was a particularly long wait at the gate. We took it all in and it has changed!
Gone are the days of people dressing up to get on a plane. Now it is all designer sweats, comfortable skinnies, layered sweaters, tees and shoes of comfort!! While being comfortable is key, staying on trend is essential too!
So take some style inspiration from the celebs, and stop by Dear Lucy to look effortlessly chic the next time you hit the airport runway!!
One of our favorites at the shop this season has been the Sam Edelman Margot High Top. It is the ideal footwear choice for exploring the urban jungle! Its slip-on ease makes navigating the streets of NYC comfortable and stylish! Not to mention-high tops have been everywhere for spring!
Taking inspiration from Gigi Hadid’s travel style, the Cole Haan Zero Grand Wing Tip Sneaker is the perfect substitute for the trendy, yet pricy Adidas Yeezy Sneakers that all the celebrities are wearing. They're lightweight and flexible so when you are running to your connecting flight, you won’t be weighed down.
Another fave at the shop is the Somers Slip-On Sneaker by Sofft. We love the ease of this shoe, with its cushioned footbed and platform sole you can just as easily rock it with a pair of skinnies as you can with sweats! Taking your shoes off at the security checkpoint has never been easier!
Traveling in sweats isn't for everyone so for those of us who still love the comfortable and casual look of skinnies and cashmere, the Frye Regina flat is the perfect go-to. This beauty is so versatile you can throw on a dress when you land and call it a day!
The final and continued customer favorite is the Superga Sneaker! The self-proclaimed “peoples shoes of Italy”, these sneakers give you an effortless sporty edge. If you're headed to Europe, this is the travel shoe for you. It's available in endless colorways but we're currently coveting the newest linen version. A celebrity favorite, this sneaker goes with literally anything you have in your closet!
This time of year the classic Vermont winter weather starts to take a toll on everyone so planning a sunny escape is a must. Travel footwear can be comfortable and chic with the help of some of our favorite brands! Stop by our shop and we'll happily help you find the perfect travel shoe! Thanks to Whim Boutique for supplying us with the beautiful clothing!
