31 May Your Top 7 Travel Style Essentials
Wherever you’re heading on your travels, the idea of packing can be quite a daunting one. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve been on holiday, there’s always something you forget or wish you’d taken with you.
So, to help you make light work of those travel essentials, here are our top style items:
1. Basic T-Shirts
These are going to be your best friend when it comes to day trips as you can easily put them underneath your jumper or cardigan to create those much-needed layers. White or black are ideal as they’ll go with almost anything.
2. A Jacket
Even if you’re venturing to a warmer climate, it’s a good idea to take a jacket with you just in case you are caught out in the rain. Consider something that’ll work for both day and night, i.e. a stylish puffer jacket or a sleek, lightweight raincoat.
3. Jeans and/or Leggings
These are must-haves in your wardrobe when you’re at home, so why shouldn’t they be while you’re on holiday? They’re perfect for teaming with dressier tops or dresses for evenings or those basic t-shirts for daytime adventures.
4. A Backpack
If you’re going to be trekking a lot on this holiday or are travelling to multiple destinations, a rugged backpack may be just the thing. But if you’re looking for something a little more elegant and stylish, designs from Radley are great as they’ll take you from day to night with ease – and they make a really practical bag for your journey, too.
5. Long Skirts and Maxi Dresses
Another hugely versatile item of clothing is a long skirt or maxi dress. These garments not only help keep you cool when you’re out and about during the day but they also add a glamorous twist to your outfit at night.
Plus, if you’re travelling to a country with strict clothing policies in public, these are perfect for helping you cover up but without getting too warm.
6. Some Dressier Items
Even if you’re not planning on going out much on holiday, it’s a good idea to pack at least one ‘dressier’ piece. This means you won’t have a meltdown if you get invited out somewhere or find a particular restaurant which has a smarter dress code.
Last but by no means least, you’ll also want some jewellery and a watch to bring your outfit together. This could be costume jewellery or some of your classic pieces.
However, if you are taking anything expensive with you – be wary. Expensive watches and jewellery can attract unwanted attention from would-be thieves so always ensure you feel confident in the area you’re in before you don these items. That said, having a watch on so you can check the time is a lot safer than getting a smartphone out when you’re in bustling tourist areas.
Armed with these stylish wardrobe essentials, you’ll be able to create numerous outfits for all your travelling adventures.
