The holiday travel season starts this week and, if you’re taking any type of public transit, you know what that means: long lines and crowds. That, and the fact that you’ll have zero control over the temperature on said public transit. Seriously, someone somewhere must have once made it a rule that all crowded public areas be freezing.
Thanks to them and the hoards of people just trying to get home, comfort is difficult to come by–but a draped sweater can seriously help. Sure, you already have your travel wear ready (leggings or your most comfortable pair of jeans, a cute cotton tee, loafers that can easily slide off), but forgetting some type of cardigan to keep you warm when the AC is blasting or that you can use as a pillow for when you doze off is a big mistake. The extra fabric on a draped sweater adds a cozy feel and a lot of on-the-go utility, from pulling it over your eyes for a quick nap and using it as a blanket to keep warm to looking casually put together when you step off that plane, bus or train.
Wherever you are going this holiday season, a draped sweater is a pretty crucial addition to your travel wear. And it’s a really good addition to your regular wardrobe, too.
