The time comes in every traveller’s life that they arrive to their destination and start questioning their packing choices. For many people planning a holiday or backpacking adventure, bringing as few items of clothing as possible is key, which is why it’s important to ensure you’re choosing the right pieces for your travels. If you’re in the process of some last minute holiday shopping and are in need of some guidance, take a look at this guide to some of the top style essentials every traveller needs.
Wherever your destination, it’s likely you’ll be doing a lot of walking throughout the day. Make sure you pack the perfect pair of trainers for your travels, with the right levels of comfort and support to banish blisters and keep your feet from feeling tired and sore.
A cosy hoodie
The temperatures may be high in the location you’re headed, but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel the chill every now and then. Cold hotel rooms and rainy nights are just some of the times you might need to layer up, so having a warm oversized hoodie available can be a lifesaver, and definitely deserves a place in your suitcase.
Some quality sunglasses
Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays with some high quality sunglasses. Beach days, mountain treks and even just strolls through city streets all leave your eyes exposed to the sun, so it’s a good idea to keep a pair of protective glasses on hand throughout your trip.
One common problem with buying expensive quality sunglasses, especially while traveling, is the lenses quite often get scratched or break while the frames are still in perfect condition. An easy fix to this is replacing the damaged lenses with new lenses for a fraction of the price allowing you to keep your eyes protected all while keeping your favourite shades.
A simple T-shirt
T-shirts can be a godsend during travel, so it’s definitely wise to make some space in your suitcase for a tee or two. The right t-shirt can cool you down in the heat and is versatile enough to be layered with other clothing or dressed up or down for relaxed, effortless style.
A versatile backpack
This might be an obvious one for backpackers, but for those preparing for a city break or beach holiday, the right backpack can really come in handy. Backpacks come in all sizes and styles, and are perfect for storing all the bits and bobs you need for exploring a new place while keeping your hands free.
A lightweight scarf
A scarf might not be an item you’d ever thought of adding to your list, but a large lightweight scarf can really help you out on your holidays. Aside from easily accessorising any outfit, a scarf can be used to sit on in parks or beaches and is essential for covering your head and shoulders when visiting certain places of worship or in conservative countries.
The right pair of jeans
One of the most widely worn items of clothing in the world, jeans are an essential item for good reason. Jeans can be styled with any outfit and are a definite wardrobe staple for both men and women. If you’re concerned about the space jeans can take up, consider jeggings as a more lightweight alternative and a way to keep comfortable while still looking stylish.
