Jet Set

Even though travel is a large part of my normal life, I still romanticize it. I daydream about PanAm flight attendants, dapper pilots with million-dollar smiles, Frank Sinatra piped through the airport speakers and travelers dressed in their best, excited for the journey ahead. When did we, as a society, become so casual? Ahh, but that’s a rant for another day. I love showing up at the airport for my flight in a look that not only makes me feel great but also pays homage to the days where sweatpants and stained tees weren’t the norm for flights.

When putting together my look, I knew there was only one brand that would be the perfect blend of modern and timeless: Universal Standard. They may be new to you, but fellow fashionistas, take note: this brand is poised for greatness. From the cut of their garments to the fabrics they use… everything screams luxe. I feel like I need to mention that this is not a sponsored post – I am just SO obsessed with this brand that my enthusiasm comes across as a bit ‘infomercial’ – and I apologize for that. It’s difficult to express my adoration for this brand without coming across like a QVC host. I digress. For my trip, I pulled their Garamond Vested Blazer and Primo Shawl in their own signature red. Hello jet set chic!

I did modernize the look a bit more with my favorite destroyed jeans and lace-up flats – mainly for the comfort and ability to run through the airport if needed – but on a day-to-day basis, a pair of ankle-length trousers (or a gorgeous pencil skirt, like this one) would be my choice to pair with the vested blazer.
