Scarf for Travel Wear for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: For the Plane

Quote of the day: “Optimism for me isn’t a passive expectation that things will get better; it’s a conviction that we can make things better.” Melinda Gates

In the second week of our travel series (see the 50’s wardrobe capsule-here and the 60’s wardrobe capsule-here), I’ll continue with the theme of “essentials” for travelling. This week is the scarf. Of course it’s one important piece you take on all your travels, right?  In my thinking, it can act like a jacket that is easy to remove and then you can throw it in your bag or even around the handles of your purse!  It can tie many ways to create different looks and is a great addition of color if you need it! For travelling, I consider it a must for the plane trip.  I always run on the cold side, so the scarf acts as my blanket.  If you don’t run cold, then it could be used as a prop behind your neck or back for the wonderfully comfortable seats on the airplane!

50’s Scarf: I like this scarf because it has three different panels of color.  So if you fold it right, you mostly see only one of the color schemes.

As for a selection of travel wear scarf options, this is what I came up with:

  • Kathleen McDermott

    I love every detail of all 3 outfits. Your pants are delightful. I love a nice white cardigan and always bring one on the rare occasions I’m able to be away from the McD beasts. And there’s those adorable bomber jackets again.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kathleen!!
      It took me a minute to figure out the McD beasts–but of course you mean your fabulous kitties!! I have a lint roller in each car and in the closet that is on the way out the door, just because of kitty hair!!

      • Kathleen McDermott

        I buy the megapacks of packaging tape from Costco. Can’t leave the house without a onceover.

  • Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Having a large scarf that can serve as a blanket on the plane is a great thing

  • Jess

    All the blue tones looks great on you, the scarf with the different print is pretty on you too!
    Thank you for linking up with Turning heads Tuesday!

  • Everyone’s scarves are so pretty!

  • dan

    I have enjoyed very much what you wrote about scarves! Yes they are very useful and can add a touch of style to the outfit…
    Yours is lovely!

  • Hi Jodie,
    I almost always have a scarf to hand….summer or winter. They are indispensable to me.
    For extra heat when it’s chilly, protection from the sun (make an emergency sun hat) or just as a security blanket….I have many and love them (always looking for new ones!)

    • I couldn’t agree more…I just wonder why it’s taken me over 40 years to realize this 🙂

  • You all look so great! Now I’m going to want to wear a scarf next time I travel on a plane! XO

  • I’m such a scarf lady, I have them coming out of my ears like a magicians has handkerchiefs coming out of their arms! I love them in winter. These are all gorgeous and I’m so with you on using them on planes as a blanket. The temperture always fluctuates between airport – too hot and plane – to cold so scarves fill that gap.

    • Scarves are such a great item…that’s why you have so many—besides they don’t take up much space!!

  • You can never go wrong with a scarf…and you proved that here in all three looks! Love everyone’s jackets too!

    • Thanks Darlene…sometimes I feel like I need to take a hat & mittens for the plane ride too—ha ha!!

  • MaryAnne

    You just can’t go wrong with a couple of scarfs thrown in. Great for wrapping, neck, using as a belt, and if big enough tie into a cool vest. Very bohemian looking! Lots of great videos out there how to do this.

    This is my favorite.

    • I totally love that youtube video! I actually used that method for mom’s & mine that you’ll be seeing on Saturday!!

        Can’t wait. 🙂
