Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and for most college students, this means traveling. Whether you're driving, flying, or hopping in a plane or on a bus, traveling always requires meticulously chosen outfits. There are so many variables that can go terribly awry: poorly picked footwear, a wrinkled top, or a lack of layers.

In an effort to assist this tricky wardrobe woe, we have created 5 travel-friendly outfits for you. The best part? Each of the looks shown below rings in at under $100 total. Keep reading to see them all:

Outfit 1: $93.73


Product Information: Top - Black Five, Leggings - H&M, Shoes - 6PM, Bag - Aeropostale, Glasses - Forever 21

What's more travel-friendly than a flouncy shirt? This silky plaid top is the grown-up version of flannel. When paired with "denim" leggings that have a trendy knee detail, this look is as comfortable and fashionable as it gets. Comfy shoes are a must-have for travel days. Toss your belongings in a cute carry-on backpack, throw on chic fashion glasses, and put your hair in a ponytail. Ready, set, fly!

Outfit 2: $98.79


Product Information: Sweater - Black Five, Jeans - UNIQLO, Shoes - Forever 21, Scarf - Forever 21

If you're flying, we highly suggest wearing as few accessories as possible. This slouchy sweater and boyfriend jean combo has one sole accessory: a scarf for warmth (sometimes those planes get chilly!). If you choose to wear a slight heel for extra height, make sure it's a chunky and stacked one that's comfortable to walk in.

Outfit 3: $93.64


Product Information: Top - American Eagle, Pants - H&M, Jacket - Amazon, Shoes - Forever 21, Belt - H&M

Just because you're traveling doesn't mean you have to wear baggy sweaters and leggings. A simple tee can be dressed up with beige jeans and a nice belt. Layers are key, so toss this jacket on when you get cold. These smoking slippers look super-polished, but are easy to slip on and off.

Outfit 4: $94.77


Product Information: Dress - Boohoo, Sweater - Amazon, Shoes - 6PM, Tights - Charlotte Russe, Hat - Forever 21

Dare to wear a dress! This soft dress would work perfectly for a road trip when paired with a long burgundy cardigan. Tights and flat boots are easygoing yet chic. Getting a case of serious flyaways? Hide them with a knit beanie.

Outfit 5: $90.55


Product Information: Top - UNIQLO, Jeans - Delia's, Shoes - Go Jane, Bag - Forever 21, Watch - Go Jane

A roomy tote is a must-have for any traveler, especially when you need to carry your fashion mags, laptop, and wallet. This metallic bag is our favorite pick in this post. For $3.80, how can you not buy this cute carryall?

We love pairing a striped top with light wash jeans for a casual yet stylish travel outfit. Combat boots are easy to walk in, so be sure to wear them on your trip. Class this look up with a chic gold watch that matches the tote.
