Connecting Fashion Around The World
Some might say that fashion and travelling aren’t related. Well, I guess this is true for some people, but for me personally it’s unimaginable. Can you imagine traveling to an amazing new city looking like a mess? I simply feel that I should look as great as the city does and only then I will be able to experience it in all its beauty and glory. In order to use the full potential of your trip, you should try this, too. Ideally, you should try to combine beauty and practicality as often as you can. After all, you don’t want to end up overpacking. In that respect, here are a few musts to bring to your next trip.
Let’s face it – there’s always a fair probability of rain, but at the same time, you don’t have enough space in your suitcase for an umbrella. Also, as a tourist, you always have a bunch of stuff with you, your passport, wallet, camera, etc. You usually need to carry a lot of things with you as you’re often having day long excursions and that doesn’t leave enough space to bring an umbrella with you. That is why you should get a rain wrap. They’re much easier to carry and they come in different forms and colors. You can say goodbye to garbage-men suits as rain wraps and welcome a nice and stylish wrap that is multifunctional.
Given the limitation of your luggage and the variety of situations you’ll find yourself in during this trip, you need to compromise and you need to do it well. Instead of taking several bags with you, one for everyday walks, one for evenings, one for formal occasions and what not, take a bag that is a neutral as possible and large enough to fit everything you need in all situations. That way you won’t have to be embarrassed in a museum, at a café or a dinner party with a bag that doesn’t fit the occasion.
These can be quite useful, especially on trips. They don’t take almost any space in your suitcase and you can use them several times only with different accessories. If you bring a great stylish kaftan and bring several different belts and different jewelry with you, nobody will notice that you wore it three times if well combined with other accessories. This is a great space-saver and your fashion sense doesn’t have to take the bullet in order for it to come true.
Another important regard is concerning your jacket. Again, you need a neutral jacket that goes with several occasions. However, you also need to think about functionality. This is why you should try and get a jacket with many pockets and secret compartments. That way you will have a place for everything you need – your iPod, earphones, phone, passport and everything else that’s easier kept in pockets than in a bag that forces you to search through it every now and then.
The idea behind scarves is the same as the one with kaftans. It’s easier to bring several scarves than several dresses. If you use it as an accessory, it can completely change your appearance and give it a brand-new vibe even if you already wore all other clothing items. Don’t be afraid to experiment, you can use scarves in many ways.
As you can see, there are many ways to be stylish and pack lightly for your trip. This is a win-win situation. You’ll look great, but at the same time, you won’t have to drag a heavy suitcase around and curse your need to look good on trips.
