5 Tips for Travelling in Style & Comfort

The holidays are right around the corner! For many of us this means a lot of travelling, whether you're going halfway around the world to see your family, or are just finally exploring somewhere warm and exotic for your much-awaited vacation days.

It's time to say goodbye to your sloppy airport look and show up to your destinations looking fresh and neat! We’ve compiled a list of 5 tips for you on how to travel in style, while remaining comfortable and practical.

1. Flats, Flats, Flats

Chances that most of us are not like celebrities with assistants holding our bags. So sticking to flats is probably the safest strategy when you travel. With the right choices, you can look just as stylish… minus all the pain. Try wearing loafers and slip-ons so you can save some time at the security gate.

2. Layer it Up

Keep in mind that no matter where you are heading to, it's always colder on the plane. Although you can always ask for blankets, it’s good to be prepared with extra layers for your own comfort. You definitely don't want to risk catching a cold on your holiday.

3. Keep it Soft & Stretchy

A pair of jeans are great for many situations, but can feel restrictive when you need to sit for a long time. When it comes to the perfect pair of pants for travel, we search for something soft and stretchy, with a nice fit. Bonus points if it has pockets!

4. Use Bags that Fit Everything (and Keep ’em Organized)

Let’s face it. You don’t want to dig into your purse for hours looking for your lipstick. But you do want to keep everything you (over)packed for your trip in one place. That’s why we need sizable travel bags that can fit everything yet keep everything you need organized and at your fingertips.

5. Maintenance!

No one wants to look (or smell) like a slob when you get off the plane and get ready to receive hugs and kisses from your loved ones. But that can happen after 12 hours of flying and overnight layovers. Instead of attempting to cover it up with heavy makeup, keep your look refreshed with these magic tools.

Now, ready to start packing up your bags? Bon Voyage!

How To Dress For Success At A Job Interview

A job interview is stressful as is, so the last thing you want to have to worry about is what to wear. Everyone wants to make a good first impression, and the best way to do that is to dress appropriately for the interview.

The most important thing to keep in mind is creating a look that is both professional and neat, but you should also wear clothes that make you feel confident and comfortable. Don’t overdress, but don’t underdress either! We will guide you to reach a good balance between the two.

Blazer

The blazer is a type of jacket resembling a suit jacket, but cut more casually. You can either wear a blazer formally with trousers, or more casually if you combine it with a pair of dark jeans.

Power Suit

Another one of our favorite looks combines a blazer with matching trousers. This creates a very chic and professional look, and don't feel like you need to limit yourself to the traditional black, blue or grey.

Basic Blouse

Pair a blazer with a blouse in a neutral color for a professional, put together look. A white blouse always works well.

Turtleneck Pullover

A turtleneck is a chic and a classic choice. It is easy to wear under a blazer, and you can get it in many different colors. It's a true wardrobe essential.

Footwear

Depending on the type of interview, you can easily make your outfit more chic or more casual with different kinds of footwear. One way to make your outfit more chic is to add ankle boots to your outfit. There are thousands of ankle boot options; pointed toe or rounded toe, tall shaft or short shaft, suede or leather… They are also comfortable to wear and match almost every outfit! Adding platform shoes to your outfit will give you a more casual look.

What is Hanfu?

When people think of traditional Chinese clothing, the first thing that comes to mind is usually the 旗袍 (qipao), the fitted patterned dress that seems to be quintessentially Chinese. However, 汉服 (hanfu) is also another major clothing style that is special to the Han Chinese identity and history. It is characterized by an upper garment (either a robe or a shirt) paired with a lower garment (typically a pleated skirt), and dates all the way back to the Han Dynasty. This style has also influenced other Asian clothing styles, such as the Korean hanbok, Japanese kimono and yukata, and others.

The Hanfu movement is a recent social trend that has been dedicated to reviving and adapting these ancient fashions to modern times. Check out and shop some of our favorite Hanfu-inspired pieces below! These are perfect for the right special occasion, for those interested in incorporating these classic styles into modern-day wear, and make wonderful and thoughtful gifts.

Hanfu Style for Women

Hanfu for women was usually characterized by flowy attire made from natural materials. From blouse-and-skirt sets to comfy yet stylish tops, these classic pieces can definitely make their way into a cute, tradition-inspired outfit. Shop some of our favorites below, which can easily be incorporated into a cute summer outfit.
