The One Item You Can Wear All Season Long

Traveling during the holidays might sound like fun when you're booking your ticket, but it comes with its own set of headaches once your departure date rolls around. Among them, long security lines, airport drop-off lines, taxi lines—are you sensing a pattern? There's one part of your journey that should be easy and effortless, though: your outfits. Which is why you need to pick up a knit duster, the fashion girl–favorite third piece perfect for long days at the airport (and dinner with friends once you reach your final destination). To prove it, we had blogger Kat Tanita of With Love From Kat show us her foolproof airport outfit using pieces from INC International Concepts, Created for Macy's. It just takes a touch of fashion magic.

Watch the video below and you'll become a believer yet.

Whether you're going home or escaping to an Instagram-ready tropical destination for the holidays, you need an outfit that's both airport runway-ready and functional. For your in-transit look, go for a classic gray-on-gray ensemble. To break up the monotony, add a loud print with your shoes.

Once you've freshened up, swap your sweater for a crisp shirt and throw your knit cardigan back on. With a change of shoes, you're ready in 10 minutes for a reunion with friends. We love these ankle booties and their pretty Lucite heels. 

You're naturally going to be out and about once the sun goes down, but a duster can look nighttime-appropriate when paired with a corset-style knit top and high-waist trousers. Accessorize with of-the-moment touches like velvet shoes and drop earrings.
