Travel in Style with Belinda Robertson Luxury Essentials!
We have all seen those sartorially put together women who breeze through the airport exuding an air of cool, calm confidence while pulling their neat little roller cases behind them. We secretly aspire to achieve that same effortless chic and vow to be more discerning and prepared for the next time we travel. Yet when faced with an empty suitcase we start to overthink every potential scenario and before we know it our case is full to overflowing! So what is the formula for traveling light without sacrificing style?
Well according to Travel + Leisure magazine – the authority on everything travel – the key is to choose clothes that share the same color palette and to mix and match garments that create new outfits with ease. They advise to roll, don’t fold, skip the bulky platform heels and extra jacket and choose fabrics that won’t wrinkle. It all boils down to being realistic and leaving the high maintenance clothes behind!
One retailer who offers a range of stylish yet versatile apparel synonymous with travel chic is the Scottish based company Belinda Robertson. The company’s founder and designer, Belinda Dickson, has captured the essence of luxury essentials through her own love of travel and desire to produce well-fitting knits in high quality fabrics. Awarded the OBE (Order of the British Empire) for services to the textile industry, she has garnered an international following and is considered an aficionado in the world of knitwear having produced garments for fashion houses such as Nina Ricci, Michael Kors, Eskander, Chloe and Karl Lagerfeld to name but a few.
Thanks to the super friendly team at Belinda Robertson I was recently given the opportunity to sample some core pieces from the current collection and I have to tell you the quality is quite exceptional and yet surprisingly affordable (especially at the current exchange rate!) Check out the pieces I am currently coveting for my next international trip.
This Claudia Poncho Cape drapes beautifully over skinny jeans. Perfect for chilly airline cabins and overzealous air conditioning!
When teamed with denim cut offs or jeans the Adele Cape evokes a youthful boho vibe yet makes for an amazingly cozy travel piece.
I’m in love with this soft cashmere Asymmetric cardigan (available in three colors) which with its effortless silhouette creates that look of insouciance we all aspire to.
Belinda Robertson jersey separates have a beautiful drape and are a little dressier than the average tee! Team with stylish accessories for a chic yet versatile travel capsule. The jersey Bordeaux Rouched dress (top) is perfect for day to evening transition yet takes up little room in your suitcase!
