PCT: The Travel Outfit
Oct 4, 2010
If you’re working for a Senate or Governor campaign, then you will probably spend a lot of your time in the car. This endless campaign sojourn forces many staffers to choose between uncomfortable and unprofessional, but it doesn’t have to be that way. As long as the candidate has a more relaxed style (ie. isn’t wearing a suit), you can wear my go to travel outfit: The sweaterdress ensemble.
For this outfit, we combine an interesting sweaterdress with leggings (or thick tights) with a pair of nice boots and a stylish bag. I’ve kept the color palette to gray and black because it looks a little more professional than brown which often looks a bit more relaxed.
As for the dress, with my short legs this will be plenty long enough (esp. with leggings). However, you should always make sure that the dress is a professional length before you pack it.
Because no outfit would be complete without jewelry, I chose three pieces with a lot of pop that won’t take up much room in your bag.
