6 Celebrity Tips for Traveling in Style

Look to jet-setting celebrities for tips on how to stay stylish while you travel. Here, six lessons:

[1] Wear a cute hat: Rachel Bilson's fedora not only looks adorable, but it can conceal a bad hair day, especially if you're traveling uber early or catching the red-eye. Bonus: By wearing it on the plane, your hat won't get crushed or take up space in your luggage.

[2] Carry a cross-body bag: Emma Roberts keeps her hands free with a stylish cross-body bag, making travel essentials like that boarding pass and wallet super easy to access.

[3] Try a dress: There's no reason you can't fly in a dress, like the lovely Giuliana Rancic. Just pick a comfy fabric and toss a scarf or cardigan in your carry-on in case you get cold.

[4] Wear your heaviest items: Florence Welch stays true to her rocker-chick style when she's on the go in a leather jacket and black boots. On a practical note, these are items that weigh a lot and take up a lot of precious space in your suitcase, so wear them on the plane if possible.

[5] Toss on a cozy scarf: Jessica Alba loves to accessorize with scarves, especially when traveling. An oversized scarf will look cute and double as a shawl when you're in the air.

[6] Rock glamorous shades: Stars like Elizabeth Hurley never leave home without their sunnies. It goes without saying that a big pair of glam sunglasses will make you look cool and hide dark circles or the fact that you just don't feel like wearing any makeup. I find it easier to take a nap when I'm wearing sunglasses, too.

Great post! I love wearing crossbody bags to travel. It keeps your hands free. I love scarves! They are so comfy and perfect for plane rides. I also love the idea of wearing a hat. Your hair gets really messy from sitting on the airplane for long hours, so a hat is perfect!

Maxi dresses are the best for flying. Nothing is more comfortable traveling in your nightgown!

Thanks for posting this. I'm always looking for celebrity inspiration on how to dress for travel. We take these grueling long-haul flights to Asia on vacation to visit family, etc. and it's suuuuper difficult to find clothes that look decent at the end of the flight!

I think dresses are the best for travel, but on airplanes I would also wear leggings underneath for added warmth. And knits are a godsend!
