Travel tips for what to wear and stay trendy on your next vacation
Your bags are packed, and you are ready to go. There are butterflies in your stomach, you check for the third time your flight ticket printouts and the copies tucked in the luggage – all this is part of the build up for the trip that you have been planning for. Travelling is also about being on the move, geared up for bus rides and walks down busy streets where new languages punctuate the air. Comfort while travelling is very important. For a few days, you will be mobile and in different weather conditions, which means you have to get your travel wear right. When you shop for clothes for a trip the main things to keep in mind are your destination’s climate at that time of the year and the activities you will be indulging in. Here are some travel tips on what to wear and what to carry on your next vacation that you might find very handy and also make you look trendy!
Hit the Beaches in Style
Wondering what to wear when you hit the beach? Those house shorts may not be the best choice for the sands of Phuket. Celebrate your seaside trip with some light shorts which allow good mobility. Shorts should also be of quick drying material and rugged, so that you can keep your luggage light. T-shirts are your best friend at the beach, but you can style it up with some polos and Henleys just to add that extra bit of sophistication.
It is all about comfort at the beach, but you also need to keep an eye on your gadgets and wallets. Pockets are great; half-cargos are another great option for a coastal getaway.
On the Move
Flights are a bit of stress on the body, especially the long ones. The same goes with bus journeys. You will be sitting cramped in one posture for quite a while and may doze off in a weird position. It is prudent to give your limbs and body as much relaxation as possible and know what to wear while traveling in a plane or a bus or a car. Wear loose fitting clothes and flat comfortable shoes. Layers are good, so you can always slap on a cardigan or light sweater when the temperature gets a little nippy.
Is your vacation going to involve some traditional bazaars and dusty old towns? A money bag is a convenient way to carry around your cash. Always keep a back-up stash of cash or cards in case you end up in an adventurous situation. Travel specific toiletry bags are another great purchase to keep things organised.
Don’t let Weather Play Spoilsport
It is important to know what to wear based on the weather condition. If you are heading to a place where it is likely to rain, then you would not want to fritter away valuable time cooling your heels in a hotel room. Be prepared for the rain, pack in an umbrella or better still rain wear so that you can move around and actually enjoy the rain. If you are heading out to a sunny place like the desert, be sure to pack in headgears like hat or cap or scarf and shades to protect yourself against the sun. If you are heading to snowy lands, you need to equipped with the right gear including warm clothing, snow boots and shades.
The Right Luggage
Light is the word when it comes to luggage. If you want to buy fashion accessories that are tailor-made for a holiday, then khaki backpacks are a classic choice. In most cases, you have one main luggage and the smaller one with essentials that you carry around with you. Teal green and charcoal black designs from abof are ideal for rugged travel as the dark colours will hide inevitable marks and stains, which you can always take care of when you get back.
It is all about Footwear
Considering that you are on travel, it is a given fact that you will constantly be on the move and hence it goes without saying that your footwear is going to take the brunt of the action. So be clear on what you wear. Choose your footwear with care. If your travel also involves trekking, make sure you are carrying sturdy hiking boots. If you are going to hit the beach, floaters or flip flops must find a place in your luggage. In short, dress your feet for the occasion and plan based on where you are going.
This is just a scratch on the surface when it comes to travel wear. Self-sterilising water bottles, inflatable pillows and all-in-one chargers are also extra recommendations for those going on a backpacking trip. For basic travel, comfort, lightness and storage are the priorities. Decide what to wear and always choose your clothes well and stay trendy and have a great vacation!
