What Not To Wear To Travel

When packing for a trip, there are definitely certain items you should leave at home, and others you will want to bring along. Travel is always a fun experience that can create a lifetime of memories. But packing for a trip can sometimes be a daunting experience. With the right style tips at hand, knowing what to bring and what to bring at home, you can be a smart and stylish traveler. Whether you’re heading on a voyage to a faraway destination, or just taking a weekend getaway, featured in this style guide are must-read tips about what not to wear to travel.

Style Tips For What Not To Wear To Travel


Since you can’t pack your entire wardrobe, definitely don’t bring your entire shoe closet. With that said, opt to pack a pair of comfortable, casual day shoes (like flats or wedges) to wear during the daytime, especially if you plan on doing a lot of walking. Make sure to bring along a pair of evening shoes (like a pair of pumps in a neutral metallic material).


When it’s time to pack your apparel, don’t bring fabrics that are hard to travel with or that wrinkle. You don’t want to travel with materials like chiffon, silk, lace or linen. These types of fabrics tend to wrinkle easily and also require dry cleaning, ironing, or steaming. Instead, pack durable fabrics (like cotton, jersey, and a poly-blend) that increase longevity and wearability during the course of your vacation. As an example, a lightweight jacket (in denim, a synthetic material, or cotton) in a neutral color (like black, tan, or gray) coordinates easily with most outfits and works all day long keeping you warm, while looking stylish.


When you need to determine what to wear to travel, don’t pack an array of colors. Instead, stick with a basic color theme. This way you can rely on your accessories to give you a bold pop of color or a hint of pizzazz.

A multi-colored graphic print scarf is a perfect example of what to wear to travel. It’ll keep you warm, it’s easy to pack, and will add a punch of color to your outfit. In addition, a simple metallic belt is a great way to punch up the pizzazz of your outfit. Opt to bring fashion jewelry (instead of expensive vintage pieces or prized possessions), because you never want to lose or have stolen any of your valuable heirlooms.

With these basic style tips in mind, the next time you’re heading out of town, you’ll now know exactly what not to wear to travel. Bon voyage!
