MOM

Packable Puffers
If you’re traveling from a cold climate to a warm destination, pack a jacket in your luggage. The last thing you need to worry about is taking up overhead space. I always travel with a jacket from Aritzia. They come with a nylon travel bag and condense down into a small ball.

Dark Clothing
If anything spills on your lap or the little one spits up on your shirt, dark colors will prevent the stain from staring at you all day. This cotton shirt is my Go-To T-shirt. I own five of them. They fit great, they’re affordable and a dependable layering piece.

Layer it Up
Speaking of layers, the temperature on an airplane can vary. Wearing a T-shirt under a chambray or plaid button down is key to making quick adjustments. A good Rails shirt will do the job. No boxy button down here.

BABY

Cozy Cabin
Keep their head warm with a hooded jacket that’s also stylish for outings.

These joggers are soft and cute. Match with a simple, quality organic T-shirt that will mirror Momma.

Change of Clothes
Having an extra pair of clothes for baby might be more important than what baby is wearing. You can expect some dirty knees and a few spills. Having a clean backup set of comfortable clothes will come in handy— especially if there are any delays.

 

 

 

DAD
Ready for Anything
Now men have a luxe, high-quality, wear-anywhere apparel that is performance-based yet looks good. Dad will be good to go in anything by Rhone.

These Torrent Pants are stylish, lightweight and offer great mobility that translate to workouts or moving through the airport, which can be a workout in itself. Plus there are pockets, which we can never have enough of when traveling. Pair with the Element T-Shirt. Good for everyday or for travel day.

Tipster:

Diaper wipes work well for taking out fresh stains.

According to the TSA, children under 12 years old no longer need to remove their shoes at security checkpoints.

For baby and children, pack clothes that coordinate so matching isn’t a problem when shirts get messy but bottoms are spared.
