The Jet Set Crowd: Lovi Poe
Pack those bags and hop on a plane for an exciting travel adventure with Lovi Poe
Metro Most Stylish 2018 Hall of Famer Lovi Poe has been bitten by the travel bug. Her ‘Gram says so, and we don’t know which is more drool-worthy: The amazing sites she’s at, her travel OOTDs, or her lit AF hot bod. Whatever it is, we just can’t seem to take our eyes away from her and her adventures.
WHAT KIND OF TRAVELER ARE YOU?
I make sure that I have an itinerary but I don’t completely stick to it. If something unexpected comes up, I go with the flow, too. It’s just nice to have that sense of security that a day won’t be wasted when you’re meant to explore a new place.
TRAVEL ESSENTIALS IN YOUR CARRY-ON?
Comfy white sneakers, bag and luggage organizer (so I get to divide my OOTDs per day and per city), my toiletries, gym outfit and shoes (in case I get to sneak in a workout), and hair bun (my go-to hairstyle when lazy).
GO-TO TRAVEL OUTFIT AND/OR ACCESSORY?
I’m obsessed with gold accessories, [because] it goes with my skin tone. Some days, I love being dressy and I mix and match a lot of pieces, but towards the end of my trip, I end up wearing my favorite "mom" jeans and a plain white tee. It’s being lazy but still trying to be chic at the same time. [I also bring a pair of] Chanel sling back pumps [that] I wear with almost anything, and my rose gold Omega watch.
BEST OUTFIT TO WEAR WHILE TRAVELING?
I usually wear an all-black long, loose dress; comfort comes first for me in fashion.
FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATION?
I’m in love with Italy. I realized that every visit to Europe, Italy’s always part of my itinerary.
THE BEST PLACE TO GO SHOPPING?
I don’t intentionally travel just to shop; I only shop when I lay my eyes on something I fall in love with—may it be in a fancy shopping mall or even a flea market.
You find yourself when you’re lost in unknown cities.
WHAT'S NEXT ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
I would love to visit Spain for the tapas and Prague for the architecture. Definitely on my list!
