Travel and fashion: How to style chic travel appropriate outfits
1. Pack a fashionable straw hat and a pair of oversized sunglasses
Even a plain white t-shirt and a pair of high waisted denim shorts will look elegant and sophisticated if you pair them with a straw hat which boasts a large brim and an oversized pair of sunglasses. As an added bonus you’ll be sure to look like an A-list star if you pair a straw hat and a pair of oversized sunglasses with a simple shirt dress and a pair of brown or gold leather sandals!
2. A simple white or navy shirt dress
A white or navy shirt dress in a cotton or linen fabric will breathe well and will keep you feeling cool while you explore a tropical island or the Mediterranean. Better yet you’ll have no trouble dressing up a shirt dress after a fun-filled day of sight-seeing, in order to enjoy dinner at a fancy restaurant.
3. A glamorous maxi dress
If you only have room in your suitcase to pack two dresses, it’s well worth packing a maxi dress as well as a shirt dress. As a maxi dress will look just as chic used as a cover-up on a white sandy beach as it will styled with heels and fancy jewelry for a night out on the town.
4. A pair of stretchy skinny jeans
Even if you plan on visiting a warm, tropical destination it’s well worth packing a pair of stretchy skinny jeans in your suitcase, as many vacation destinations experience a noticeable temperate drop when the sun goes down.
5. A pair of high waisted shorts
A pair of high waisted shorts is a practical yet stylish staple which is appropriate for adventurous travel activities such as cycling as well as exploring new cities. Better yet by simply changing the shirt which you wear with your shorts, you’ll be able to create a variety of seemingly brand new outfits.
As an example, on the first day of your vacation you may choose to pair your high waisted shorts with a white off the shoulder blouse, whilst on the second day of your vacation, you may opt to style the same pair of shorts with a designer t-shirt.
6. A floral or polka dot playsuit
You can’t go wrong packing a playsuit in your luggage as a playsuit won’t fly up on a windy day and you’ll still be able to participate in active pursuits such as cycling in a stylish, fashion-forward playsuit.
7. A leather belt
It’s also worth packing a leather belt which will work just as well with your dresses as it will with your denim jeans and shorts.
So if you’ve had difficulty packing for trips in the past, it’s well worth packing all 7 items listed above for your next overseas adventure.
