Top 4 Travel Wardrobe Essentials
Along with the excitement that comes from traveling to a new country also comes the stress of packing. If you’re trying to save money on baggage costs and pack light, it can be difficult to decide what to bring. However, all you really need are some essentials you can mix and match depending on the weather and occasion. When you’re trying to cram all your things in a small suitcase, it’s best to neatly roll up your clothes to prevent wrinkles. Also, packing fabrics that are generally lightweight but layer well is a good idea.
To help you out, here’s a list of clothing items you should put on your travel checklist: Top 4 Travel Wardrobe Essentials
1.A plain T-shirt
Whether it’s in timeless white, black, or any other colour under the rainbow, a t-shirt is a must-have no matter where you travel. Harpers Bazaar suggests the COS’ boxy white tee as it is an affordable pick that comes in a thick but comfortable fabric. It’s not see-through like most white t-shirts, and has a boxy but slightly cropped fit that matches with anything. Pair it with denim cut-offs and some trainers for a daytime look, or with a midi skirt and heels for something for sophisticated.
2.A Pair of Pants
When you’re out and about wearing something with breathable fabric and that’s easy to move in should be a top priority. Woman Within’s straight leg bottoms fit the bill because you can dress it up or dress it down depending on the occasion. They also flatter any body type and have a stretchy waistband for maximum comfort even if you’ve accidentally overindulged at the buffet table. Top them off with a graphic tee, leather jacket, and red lipstick for an edgy look, or wear with a satin camisole for some romance.
3. A Sundress
If your goal is to take an Instagram-worthy photo at every tourist destination you visit, a sundress is your perfect prop. Find something billowy and flowy, like Polo Ralph Lauren’s floral maxi cotton sundress that has an adorable smocked detail and comes in a vivid yellow. It’ll definitely pop against your tanned skin while keeping you feeling breezy yet covered at the same time. Don’t forget to pack a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses for some protection against any harsh rays!
4. A Pair of Trainers
Walking is an essential part of any journey. If you’re trying to pack light, ditch the high heels, and statement-making shoes because all you really need is a pair of trainers. Matt & Nat offers a vegan alternative for those of you who aren’t a fan of leather sneakers, coming in all-white, black, pale blue, and pastel pink. They’re exceedingly practical and stylish because they offer you some protection against the rain and mud that might come your way. Conveniently, they pair excellently with any of the items on this list, making them an invaluable addition to your travel wardrobe.
