Are you up for a vacation or a business trip, and are stuck on how to look your best while traveling? It can be increasingly difficult to decide on what to pack, how to decide the dress and footwear, and also how to maintain the style in a tiring long-journey trip.
Be it any mode of commute, we end up looking messy at the end of the journey. It is essential to always stay hydrated, and eat light and healthy. Along with that, it is crucial to keep certain travel-hacks for a stylish look in mind.
Well, we have made traveling in style simple for you with these handy tips and suggestions:
Know the Place You’re Visiting and Decide Accordingly
Research thoroughly on your destination so that you can know about the kind of weather prevailing at that particular time of the year. If you are visiting a place a thousand miles, the chances are that being in different time zones, and the climate will be drastically different.
The summer-packing is usually light and hassle-free. Just keep a few t-shirts, jeans, skirt, shirt, beach-dress, swimsuit, and a pair of sunglasses or a hat, and you’re good to go. However, the main problem comes in the winter-packing where you need to fit your blazers and overcoat. It is never a bad idea to repeat the cardigans or jackets.
Pack the Minimal
You’d not want to drag yourself carrying huge luggage while your friends or colleagues are walking past quickly on the airport, right? How about a big backpack on your back while trekking? If these don’t sound nice to you, then you need to take into consideration what you pack and how you pack. Do keep your things arranged and easily accessible in a time of need.
For example, do not keep your face wash or comb so underneath that you’re unable to take it out until you clear half your bag. You may end up with heavy baggage if you’re out with your family. Just in case you are taking your vehicle, the rooftop racks are an amazing option to fit all your luggage.
If you are going to a surf destination and carrying your surfboard along, you can opt for the truck roof rack as they are very useful for carrying all the luggage that you need.

Awesome tips. I love being stylish while traveling and I always get flack from friends. I love that you put this post together with such simple tips. I started being stylish after I looked over pictures from 10+ years ago and realized how frumpy I looked. However, comfort trumps everything so it’s so important to be comfortable while stylish so you can handle a full day of sightseeing! 🙂

I agree with all of these especially choosing the footwear. Sometimes, I get tempted to bring more than two pairs to match my outfits but thank goodness I was able to find a pair in Nike that I can use for my OOTD’s and walking. I also do an thorough research when it comes to my destinations especially the weather! I had an #EpicFail adventure before, I assumed that Japan’s weather is synced with ours here in PH. I laugh whenever I remember it! Thank you for the insightful post!

Wonderful tips! I always end up over packing and can’t close my suitcase. I also love your tips about layering and checking the weather where you’re traveling to. I will never forget the cruise to Alaska where it ended up being hot enough for shorts!
