“My family road trips involve lots of hiking, so my go-to holiday look skews practical (but is still cute).” —Aemilia Madden
“I always wear slim stretchy jeans when go on a holiday road trip, along with a cozy sweater or soft T-shirt (depending on the weather), and a pair of shoes that I can easily slip on and off.” — Allyson Payer
“I tend to stick to my normal uniform when I’m on a road trip—just slightly more relaxed. Typically that consists of a cozy sweatshirt or sweater, joggers, sneakers, and a jacket I can take on and off.” — Bobby Schuessler
“I keep it super comfortable when it comes to dressing for a road trip. I typically go for a pair of stylish sweatpants like the ones below (the material is crazy soft) and an oversize T-shirt.” — Michelle Scanga
“I want to be as comfortable as possible on a road trip and be ready for exploring different stops, so leggings are perfect—and they can still look stylish with a graphic hoodie and cool sneakers.” — Erin Fitzpatrick
“I recently custom-designed this coat (welcome to the world of Frilly, if you haven't experienced it yet) and plan on wearing it everywhere this season. Paired with casual denim and low-heel ankle boots, this look could not be any easier. Since we are talking about road trips here, I’ll definitely be sporting a cool pair of socks to snuggle up in in the car once I take my pointy boots off.” — Lauren Eggertsen
“When it comes to travel outfits, I think the most important thing is comfort and then, of course, looking cute. Over the years, I’ve perfected a combo that checks both boxes and can be re-created a million ways. It’s a cozy coat, a stylish sweater, stretchy jeans, and sneakers. Works every time.” — Nicole Akhtarzad
“A road trip is all about comfort, so now’s the perfect time to break out your coolest sneakers and coziest sweater. I love how these wide-leg pants add a cool tomboy spin to the look.” — Anna LaPlaca
