Every fashionable jetsetter knows that staying stylish while in transit is just as important as getting to one’s destination. A big part of enjoying any trip, whether for leisure or work, has to do with making sure one looks and feels comfortable yet chic for any and every occasion. Comfort and style take the top spots when it comes to dressing appropriately for trips both local and abroad. One has to consider the country’s culture and climate – but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to push your personal style aside for it.

Havaianas “Happy Soles Will Travel to Brazil” contest winner, Farrah Lapinid, agrees.

“I make sure that I am dressed appropriately for the weather,” says Farrah, “so before leaving for my destination of choice, I make sure I monitor the local temperature and pack my outfits accordingly. I check ahead what activities are in the travel itinerary, so I’d know how to dress for the beach, outdoor activities, museums, and restaurants. I also make sure that my clothes and footwear can be mixed and matched. Also, accessorizing is key! Finally, comfort comes first, so I make sure to dress practical yet stylish. Your choice of comfortable footwear can spell the difference in having the greatest fun on your trip. We wore Havaianas most days during our trip to Brazil and not only were they very comfortable, they were also very fashionable and everyone on the streets of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro was happily wearing them!”

Havaianas puts the spotlight on making sure that one’s personal style is fun and fuss-free, letting stylish travel be as easy as slipping into your favorite pair of Havaianas.
