Flying used to be an elegant affiar. Men would wear suits. Women would don dresses. Meals were served. Really! Actual meals, with silverware and everything! That’s why we like the Custom Hotel in Los Angeles–it evokes that long-gone sense of flying being special, adventurous, and fun.
Nowadays, flying is more akin taking the bus. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add a dash of style to the skies. Here are four items that can spice up your traveling ensemble:

Whether you live in the Northeast like us or make it a point to skate a perfect figure 8 at Rockefeller Center every holiday season (may we suggest staying at Ink48, a Kimpton Hotel, if it’s the latter?) it’s hard to survive the winter without a decent pair of gloves. It’s also hard to navigate a city without a trusty touchscreen device. Luckily, tech gloves make it easy to bundle up while mapping out directions to, say, that one bar that serves a rocky road ice cream-flavored cocktail (we’re looking at you, Death & Company).
Here are a few of our favorite tech gloves:

Us girls (and guys) at Snique are big fans of international escapes (Valentin Imperial Maya in Playa del Carmen is our most recent bucket-list addition), but we can all agree there’s nothing worse than schlepping your bags through the seemingly-endless security line at the airport only to realize your ticket, passport and—let’s face it—composure are lost in the infinite depths of your carry-on.
Enter: Rebecca Minkoff. Her chic and playful passport wallets are the perfect solution for the girl-on-the-go. Get ready for a smooth liftoff.

Available in a rainbow of colors, these wallets are fun, fabulous and functional.
