Back in the day, travelling used to be quite a glamorous venture. Remember the high-end Orient Express dress code, the stylish tuxedos and flashy evening dresses, the hats, the bow ties and the shoes. In our contemporary times, travelling is accessible to anyone with a backpack and a plan. Avid travelling together with walking the less beaten paths of the world turned into a pleasurable hobby, and we traded style for practicality – at least fashion-wise. And we have to agree that there are a great number of reasons why we still should dress to impress when travelling.
Some say a T-shirt, jeans and sneakers are enough to get us anywhere, but we beg to differ! Avid traveller outfits should be more than comfortable and resilient to wear and tear. They should also bring a dash of style, class and tasteful fashion to heighten your travelling experience. So after you packed your travelling essentials, make room for some fashionable outfits as well. Who knows who you will meet in your travels? Picking your outfits carefully is a sign of respect for yourself and for the people whose culture you explore.
1. The City Explorer
Gray hues are the fashion du jour on runways all over the world, so get inspired and pick a soft gray long sleeved dress that is perfect for street wear and all means of transportation. You can style it further with a large shoulder bag to carry your entire road travelling essentials and a Panama-style hat to keep you safe from rain or sunshine.
2. Hit the Road, Jackie!
No matter if you explore the Grand Canyon or some less beaten paths in Africa, a white tank top, a pair of jeans, and a messenger bag will take you everywhere and keep your look sporty, yet stylish. Pick a leather vintage messenger bag or a white canvas one with leather finishing and never worry about luggage again. You can style this outfit further with oversized white sunglasses and white sneakers.
3. Bohemian Like You
If you are the kind of gal who loves to travel in high style but also feel sexy and comfortable at the same time, then you can go for the timeless white dress/travel boots combo. If deep in your heart you feel like a rebel from the 60s, then match the slouchy white dress with a white head scarf and add some tribal bracelets for a complete and dashing look.
4. Your Exotic Romance
A flowery patterned maxi dress, a pair of bold yellow sneakers and the forever fashionable denim jacket makes a travelling outfit suitable for all exotic islands you want to explore. Comfortable and carefree, this outfit is made for those ladies who appreciate the latest fashion (flower prints and denim are huge this year) and are ready to walk and enjoy life in any part of the world. This is an outfit for relaxed, joyful and stylish ladies who turn traveling into a form of art.
5. Retro-Chic with a Taste for Adventure
Some travel by foot, taking long journeys in remote, wild and less known territories, others are the adventure type who will just hop on their bikes and go anywhere the road leads. If you are the latter type of girl, then you should do this in style. Pick a bold tangerine maxi dress and style it with a cream knitted cardigan and a straw hat. If you want to style this outfit further, get a pair of comfy flat shoes and, of course, a retro bike to make you stand out of the crowd!
