Looking stylish and put-together when traveling is underrated; jumping on a flight isn’t an excuse to entirely forget about appearance.
Take celebrities, for instance. Whether it’s at the airport or the first location of a whistle-stop tour, their outfits are (usually) sleek and smooth — providing some serious fashion inspiration to the rest of the world.
And while it may seem like disheveled, wrinkly clothes are inevitable during travel, there are certain precautions both celebrities and us regular folk can take to preserve overall neatness upon arrival.
Namely, invest in a quality garment bag.
The garment bag lends itself to business travelers toting suits from city to city, but it’s also the perfect tool for anyone looking to arrive at his or her destination and not worry about finding the nearest ironing board.
Read on to see our picks for the best garment bags to keep your clothes safe, secure, and wrinkle-free.
