As a style publisher, packing light is even more important than wearing a travel outfit that is comfortable and fashionable at the same time.
However, I definitely had to break my old habit of wearing passe juicy couture tracksuits and come up with style-savvy alternative for traveling and I have to create a 12 Stylish Travel Outfit Essentials list and stick with it.
Stylish Travel Outfit
I found the balance between cozy and cool with soft cotton hoody over a t-shirt, a large scarf, a soft stretch pair of skinny pants and comfortable-yet-chic footwear.
Lightweight layers from breathable cotton are key and deciding one one basic color makes packing easier. I am going though sage green phase this summer but for winter I would go for total black or brown earth tones.
Using the Alexander Wang Marti backpack has saved me. You can use the outside pockets to have easy access to all your travel document and inside you can even fit your laptop and DSLR camera. The handbag itself is heavy with all those zippers and durable leather but it’s very spacious.
13 Summer Stylish Travel Outfit Essentials list
And now comes the toughest part because packing isn’t easy for me.
I have to learn to create minimalist packing lists. I must confess! I always overpack and I should not be giving you advice.
However, I am eager to change. I am packing for a week in Italy and Switzerland with my kids, who both travel light by the way, and I am going to use this 13 items summer packing list that gives a varying travel wardrobe options maximizing my potential looks.
As with all the lists, it is important to select clothing items that work well together and can be used interchangeably.
