When you’re traveling, whether on a road trip or a flight, comfort is key but that doesn’t mean style needs to be sacrificed. From footwear to handbags, here are eight new chic items that will take you to your destination.
1.Fitflop ankle boots £150

Sporting chunky heels, leather uppers, stitch detail and a full inside zip for easy on/off and you can walk for miles in them. And they’re easy to remove in the dreaded airport security check.
