Airport security is such a pain. Here’s one little thing to make it easier. If your pants have belt loops and you don’t want to bother on-and-off-ing your belt, try tying a ribbon or small scarf on one of the front loops for a hassle-free polished look. I used one of those narrow silk ties from Hermès, but a small knotted scarf, wide grosgrain or silk ribbon, or even a bandana would do.
This of course is meant for those of us who actually still get dressed and do not go places, especially not airplanes, in boxers and t-shirts. Just don’t even get me started on that whole thing. (But I have a feeling you will…)
Meanwhile, here is the tie peeking out from under a short jacket. Cute, right? Maybe we will start something.
Do you remember the story about–was it Babe Paley or C.Z. Guest?– who was wearing a scarf one day when the weather grew warm. She took it off and nonchalantly looped it around her pocketbook, and boom, a look was born.
This is sort of that, maybe? Except I am not Babe or C.Z. about to walk int La Grenouille. I am just me fixin’ to get on an another airplane.
With the summer travel season about to begin, I’d love to hear your tips for making the trek through TSA with style. I know you’ve got some…
