Lululemon Athletica makes technical clothing for yoga, dancing, and running, but I happen to use their comfty, yet tailored items as travel wear. New to my carry-on, the Lulu Bomber in tweed is everything a chic travel jacket should be. Water resistant 2-way stretch fabric provides ultimate comfort while the super high collar keeps my face warm and folds down for style. The jacket also has a brushed fleece inner layer for added warmth and functional zipper pockets that keep my cell phone, cards, and keys safe. The back pleat makes for a chic fashion statement and provides a little wiggle room for the active jetsetter.
Budget Find: For the recessionista who wants to save a few bucks I also love Gap’s Puffer Cardigan. This modern take on the puffer jacket combines the warmth of a down-filled coat with the streamlined look of a fitted blazer.
