Style This Comfortable Travel Outfit for Women Over 50 High or Low

Are you getting tired of the cold winter weather? Are you ready to get away to a warmer climate? If you’re looking to make a quick getaway, or if you have plans to travel in the near future, here is a chic and comfortable travel outfit for women over 50

Comfortable Travel Outfit for Women Over 50

When I travel, I like to wear pieces I know I will be able to wear on the sunny vacation as well as on the freezing cold plane. If you are traveling out of a cold climate, layers are definitely key to get you from the car, cab or Uber to the airport. So I styled this easy 5-piece outfit with cargo pants, a white t-shirt, a black cardigan, fun sneakers and a silver carry-on spinner suitcase.

High Low Travel Outfit Ideas

And I am giving you 3 options: wear this outfit with all high-end designer pieces, low-priced look-alikes or mix it up for what is known as high-low dressing.

Comfortable Travel Outfit The Cargo Pants

Since cargo pants are a huge trend for Spring 2023, and women over 50 like to wear comfortable pants, I styled this outfit around the pants. I adore these Dion Lee Toggle Parachute cotton-blend twill straight-leg cargo pants for $720. They are so chic with a high flattering waistband, cool tucks around the knees and the option to drawstring the hem to give you more options. Wear them with sneakers or flat sandals for day and with black strappy heels and a black tank for evening. That’s why they are worth the investment, but you can save a ton and pick up these Dickies crop wide leg cargo pants for only $69.99. They are the perfect way to try out the trend before you invest in a designer pair.

The Basic White T-shirt

An ideal layering piece when you travel to a warm weather location is a basic white t-shirt. If you want a very unique and special white t-shirt, this Brunello Cucinelli monili trim cotton jersey t-shirt is the one! It has the maison’s signature monili beadwork “pocket flap” and is cut from soft premium Italian cotton. It is an amazing t-shirt, but the price of $895 is a lot to swallow. So you may opt for this COS regular fit heavyweight t-shirt with a similar boxy shape for only $39.

The Cozy Black Cardigan

The perfect wrap for all sorts of weather (from cold to chilly evenings, to icy cold air conditioning) is a lightweight cardigan. And nothing is more versatile than black. No one can argue that The Row’s Fulham cashmere cardigan isn’t a classic, collectible, beautifully constructed and one you will wear time and time again for $1,490. However, you may like to invest a lot less in a soft and cozy knit sweater like this UGG® Fremont cardigan for $98.

The Fun Sneakers

You will want a pair of shoes for walking, sight-seeing and (of course) shopping. This may be your year to invest in a pair of Golden Goose sneakers for $575. The brand is still going strong! You will wear these ball star distressed snake-effect leather-trimmed leather sneakers with everything from your cargo pants to jeans, dresses and skirts. Or you can spend $400 less and pick up these Veja Campo leather sneakers with pink metallic trim for $175.

The Shiny Silver Spinner Carry-On Suitcase

Quick and easy getaway vacations require a small carry-on suitcase. Besides making it easier to get around, this will limit your choices when you get to your destination and simplify your vacation. This Tumi 19 Degree 22-Inch wheeled carry-on bag for $1,095 is so stylish with its sculptural angular design, and it will last a lifetime. Besides, Tumi will repair or replace it for up to 5 years, so it is well worth the cost. But you can also get this DUKAP Rodez lightweight hardside carry-on spinner suitcase for $104.99. That’s one tenth of the cost!

Are you planning to travel to a warmer climate soon? What will you wear when you travel?
