Many people are taking advantage of the budget-friendly travel options that tend to come about this time of year. Whether you travel to a tropical destination or make your vacation one that is a little closer to home, you still need to do some preparation. Nothing can ruin a vacation like not being prepared and properly packed. Avoid this issue by using the following tips to make sure you have the proper fashion essentials for any trip!
1. Confer with Mother Nature
No matter what you want the weather to be, there is absolutely no reasoning with stubborn Mother Nature. Always check with her before you pack. If there is the slightest chance of rain or a cold front approaching, make sure that you pack accordingly. While you do not want to over pack and have to lug around a heavy bag, it is always best to be over packed than to be out of town without items you need and miserable. Pack for the extremes and you will be covered. Great items that are perfect for in-between weather are jackets made from different materials. For example, leather jackets add a stylish, rockstar element to even the most casual outfit but can also second as a great piece of outerwear in case the weather changes. Grab a jacket with a hood if the weather shows it may get a bit cooler with rain.
Next you need to make sure that you pack items that can be mixed and matched to work for the following types of outings:
2. Casual Cute
Chances are that a lot of your vacation will be spent touring the town and walking around. While you want to be comfortable, you also want to be fashionable. Two of the most comfortable garments which are also easy to style up or down are jeans and leggings. Make sure you only bring a couple of your favorite pair of jeans because jeans do tend to get heavy and can quickly weigh your bag down if you pack too many. When shopping for the perfect pair of jeans, be sure that you try on different brands and stick to quality brands as well. While jeans can get expensive, it is definitely an item where you truly get what you pay for. The same can be said for leggings. Get leggings that are made from quality material. While you may think all leggings are made alike, quality leggings feel better, last longer, and make your body look more toned than cheap brands.
Throw on your casual bottoms with a cute top and you’re ready to take on any activities for the day!
3. Going Out Fab
You always want to be prepared for a night out on the town or a chic event. Nothing is worse than being underdressed with no cute outfit options while you’re on vacation. Grab simple cocktail dresses that go with the same pair of heels to minimize the amount of items you have to pack.
