Fall weather is hard to predict and so your travel clothes need to be versatile. It can be chilly or warm, or a combination of both. There also tends to be a sharper contrast in temperature between day and evening. So to make sure you stay cozy on those chilly days, here are some of our recommendations. And to be right on trend, choose classic styles, but with something a little different. This could be in the texture, an unexpected color, unique design elements or simply how you accessorize them. Watch the video below by Anna Reid to getter a better feel for these subtle style touches..

Note: Simply by opting for different colors on offer, these options can nicely work for spring too! And for more ideas to elevate your look, check out our article: Glam Fashion: Travel Chick for Women Over 50 .

Cicy Bell Womens Casual Blazers Open Front Long Sleeve Jacket

This blazer/jacket by Cicy Bell makes a great addition to your travel clothes wardrobe. The white one is shown here over jeans, but looks very chic over a monochrome top and bottom, such as all black. You can see an example of this look in the video. (Click any image below to see it). Although personally I’d wear a higher end black top with a snugger fit, then accessorize with a nice belt and gold or silver necklace. That way it could nicely transition to an evening look, especially when worn with stylish ankle boots (or heels).


Century Star Women’s Fall Plaid Scarf

A large, soft and warm scarf is a fall travel clothes asset you won’t want to skip. These are right on trend and can also be worn as a shawl. Here are a few examples of the different styles Century Star offers:


Without a doubt, sweaters are your fall fashion friend. On a recent trip my last airiport stop was Detroit. Before packing, I had looked up what the weather would be for my return home. And boy was it wrong. Not warm, as predicted! My limo was late so I was left shivering in the chaotic pickup area. I finally opened up my suitcase and dug out my beloved cashmere turtleneck sweater which I thought I’d never need. But I was soooo glad I had packed it. Lesson learned. Never put total reliance on the weather forecasts when packing for your trip!

One of the smartest sweater choices is a layering staple: the classic cardigan. Here’s an elegant one below for your fall travel clothes wardrobe. Note the textured knit design which fits right into the “updating a classic” trend mentioned above.

I'm a "woman of a certain age" who loves to travel, preferably in style! There's something exciting about exploring new places, meeting fellow travelers, and experiencing local cuisine. But I also really enjoy relaxing at a cafe. And it's always fun to absorb a little culture and history along the way!
