I've been thinking about travel a lot lately. It's nearly July, which means the summer travel season is here, and preparing for it ahead of time helps to alleviate my stress around it. One of the many ways in which I do so is by periodically collecting a few pieces that would be great for travel when I'm shopping. And the most important element of any travel outfit (in my humble opinion) is pants. Wear the wrong pair of pants, and your travel day is borderline ruined. We've all been there.

I hadn't taken a long-haul flight in a minute, but after traveling to Paris last week and struggling to find the perfect pair of pants to wear on the plane, I was inspired to share the fruits of my travel-pant-shopping labor with you. This useful roundup is centered on very comfortable and very chic pants to wear on planes, trains, and automobiles. I divided it into four categories to make it even more user-friendly. So whether you're looking for leggings, pull-on pants, trousers, or jeans, you're likely to find what you need to make your future trips more enjoyable. Scroll to shop the travel-friendly goods.
