You deserve to travel in style! This summer, let us help you build a travel wardrobe with essential styles that you can bring on many trips throughout the years to come.
When packing for a trip you want to opt for function, comfort, and practicality. It is also great to consider the fabrics that you will wear during your journey so that you can keep wrinkles to a minimum while you are in transit. Fabrics like cotton, bamboo, and tencel are all great choices. Linen, although it is a nice lightweight summer fabric, tends to wrinkle with wear so save those styles to wear after you reach your final destination.
Here are our style tips with 5 essentials that every travel wardrobe should have:
1. A comfortable cardigan.
Whether you are traveling by train, car, or airplane a cardigan is an essential travel must have to keep you cozy while you are in transit. Opt for a versatile cardigan that is oversized and long, like our waffle knit cardigan, which you can keep you warm while you are air conditioning during your travels. Or choose a lightweight cardigan, like our Cara open cardigan, that you can throw over your shoulders while out for dinner during your trip.
2. A comfortable pair of shoes.
Travel always includes a good amount of walking. Choose a pair of shoes with great padded soles for long walks while you are in transit or out seeing the sites. We like our Hemp Jane Blue Sandals made with a padded recycled polyester sole and cotton fabric for added comfort.
3. A functional crossbody bag.
Avoid pickpockets by keeping your valuables close to you with a stylish waist bag or crossbody bag. When choosing your bag pick a crossbody bag with a long strap and a good amount of slots and pockets. When choosing the best bag size, it is always nice to get a medium sized bag that is large enough to fit a passport.
A wallet crossbody like our Vegan Leather Met Crossbody wallet is a perfect bag for travel since it combines the functionality of a wallet and the style of a crossbody bag.
4. A stylish slip dress.
Slip dresses are a vacation staple and great to wear with a cozy cardigan while you are in travel. There are so many ways to wear a slip dress making it a very versatile style for travel. You can use your slip dress as a swimsuit coverup or style it with a cropped denim jacket and accessories for a night out during your trip.
5. A great pair of sunglasses.
Sunglasses are an essential travel accessory and can even elevate your outfit. We love a pair of bedazzled sunglasses to add a bit of sparkle to your outfit. Or opt for a classic pair of sunglasses for an editorial minimalistic style. Either way you choose, your summer vacation is not complete without a perfect pair of sunglasses! Our Vintage Retro Bedazzled sunglasses were custom made for our shop by Black Woman owned business, Divine Coverings, and are perfect for summer styles.
