Celebrating Where Fashion Meets the Skies -- With an Insider's Guide to Travel Style & The Style High Club Look at Air Crew Couture
TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 22, 2015 -- Hot off the heels of New York Fashion Week and leading into fashion week season in Canada, the travel experts at Cheapflights.ca, the champions of simple travel search, are taking on the fashion of travel.
In the coming weeks, well known and up-and-coming Canadian designers will take to the runways to showcase their latest collections. In celebration, Cheapflights.ca is taking a look at fashion on a different type of runway via its Style High Club infographic, which profiles crew uniforms from 12 of the most fashionable airlines from around the world along with details on the designers, the concepts and other tidbits behind each outfit. Feature designers include Vivienne Westwood, Christian Lacroix, John Fluevog and Ettore Bilotta.
In addition to highlighting glamour from around the globe, The Style High Club is a great inspiration for those domestic airlines looking to up their fashion game and for Canadian designers looking to get in on the action, too. In fact, Canadian-born designer David Dixon recently tweeted WestJet, "@WestJet are you looking for a new look in uniforms??? I would love to meet!"
Of course, travelling in style isn't only for the flight crew. Have you always wanted to know how to travel like a fashionista? Cheapflights.ca brings you An Insider Guide to Travel Style: How to pack like a fashion pro. Cheapflights turned to six fashion experts for tips and advice on how to travel like a fashion pro. Here are some examples of their packing dos (and don'ts):
- I like to pack in threes, (three bottoms, three tops, three
shoes, etc) that can all be mixed and matched with each other for
day or evening. Sometimes, a few extra pieces sneak in for good
- Biggest travel fashion don't -- Uncomfortable footwear. I am
all for dressing well while travelling, but when I see women
rushing through the airport in pumps, I just shake my head.
- I do my best to assimilate to the general style of a place or
destination. I don't think there is anything wrong with trying to
blend into a culture rather than standing out...This doesn't mean
I'm not being true to myself or my personal style, I just think
it's fun to switch it up!
- My favourite tips are to follow my accessory math formula
(three pairs of shoes + two bags + one scarf and sunglasses each)
wear each item of clothing twice (with the exception of underwear
or socks) and purchase travel-sized toiletries that are always kept
pre-packed in your suitcase.
- Pack only the items you love and wear regularly at home. You
should be focused on the trip and not what to wear. By packing your
tried-and-true items, you can enjoy the experiences while feeling
comfortable and put together.
- Leave the fanny pack at home. Nothing says rob me like wearing
a fanny pack strapped right around your waist.
"We respect those who can own a look at 30,000 feet, even if it's their job," says Brittany Dietz, editor at Cheapflights.ca. "But the air crew designers and our fashion insiders all plan for comfort and functionality as well style. Practical may not seem chic at first, but it is a staple of any good travel wardrobe."
