I never had a nightmare of packing my clothes whenever I travel. I’m the usual guy wearing almost the same clothes during my trips, whatever I grabbed from my closet that’s it. I rarely shop for new clothes. I’d rather buy a plane ticket than spend my money on shopping.
To answer my own question if I’m a fashionista on the road? I believe I’m not, its not that I don’t have the confidence to explore and try something different. I just prefer to wear something where I’m comfortable with. Hence, I really admire people who look “fashionista” while traveling. You guys are awesome!
I asked some of my friends to share some of their impressive photos and tips on how to look better on the road. Let’s take a look at their fashion style while traveling.
- Silver MC @Silverwanderstheworld
Where: Danang, Vietnam.
What are you wearing: A River Island crop top, high-waisted Mango pants, and Chanel bag.
Fashion tip: My personal fashion style started when I watched the movie, Coco Chanel. It helps me to understand and developed my personal style. Which, to show that the world who I’m without speaking smile emoticon. I encourage you to watch this movie too.
- Danilo Alpasan @baylondanilo
What are you wearing: Floral terno clothes with a brown cap and black Lacoste shoes.
Fashion tip: Be simple and confident to wear clothes that you feel you’re comfortable.
- Darlene Madrid @pointandshootwanderlust
Where: Bangkok, Thailand
Fashion Tip: One staple that will be forever in my closet and travel list is a white shirt. It may be prone to dirt but it’s so flexible, it goes with anything. I usually have 2 or 3 white tops with me. Either shirt, tank top, or blouse.
For traveling in tropical climates, I usually bring light pants. For example, the ever famous Thai pants or square pants. It’s easy to wash and wear and of course, lighter to bring.
- Marge Gavan @coffeehan2010
Where: Boracay, Philippines.
What are you wearing: The one I’m wearing in this photo is a good example. This button-down shirt goes well with anything; skirt, jeans, leggings, or shorts.
Fashion tip and style: My travel style is rocker-bohemian because it’s fun and comfortable but still fashionable. Just because I’m traveling, let’s say in a remote area, doesn’t mean I shouldn’t look presentable. I don’t like bringing so many clothes though so I pick those that I can easily mix and match and wouldn’t take so much space inside my carry-on bag. I pack days (sometimes weeks) before the trip because I plan out every single outfit that I’d be wearing.
- Gem Muzones @gemandthehobo
Where: Seoul, South Korea
What are you wearing: Loose black dress and a plaid shirt both from ukay-ukay.
Fashion tip: I always wear comfortable clothes whether traveling or not. Why choose comfort over style when you can have both?
- Afif Lufty
Where: Orchard Road, Singapore.
What are you wearing: Japanese youngster cowboy hat, Capri long pants, and Japanese colored shoes.
Fashion tip: Being fashionable doesn’t mean wearing designers brand from head to toe. You should try to mix and match things that you already have. Chin up, smile and be yourself.
- Wendy Lee @wendiwendi28
Where: Taichung City, Taiwan
What are you wearing: UGG boots, Forever 21 distressed denim jeans, long gray coat from Zara and camel colored thick knitted long sleeves from h&m.
Fashion tip: Wear clothes and shoes that you are comfortable with and expresses your style. Walk and explore the places you haven’t been. Meet as many people as you can and enjoy the simple pleasures of the world
- Cathy Maycon @simoybaluching
Where: Subic Bay, Philippines.
Fashion tip: Whenever I go on adventures, I’d always dig on chic and comfortable clothes as breezy as where I am going to, minus the shoes! (I mean, I bring a pair but I’ll take it off somewhere and walk around barefoot.) True that if you’re not barefoot; you’re overdressed! And, as what travelers always say, pack light!
- Krizh Montecillo @krizhypoo
Where: Pura Kehen, Bangli, Bali Indonesia
What are you wearing: Coco Cabana long skirt and Forever21 tank top
Fashion tip: Wear something nice to match the beautiful view of the place your planning to visit. Only wear comfortable clothing and don’t over do it.
I recommend to wear something light during travel and always carry a sweatshirt. There are tendencies that it’s too cold inside a plane or a bus. I stick to neutral colors or what they called “Earth Colors” for these colors can be easily mixed and match. Also, I believe that sleeping is important to look fresh. If I have a chance to take a nap or sleep during long travel. I always grab it. Research shows that people who have enough and better sleep feels more attractive. Lastly, the best thing you can wear during your travel is your SMILE.
We all have our own fashion sense and I hope that we should not be judge based on our appearance. I believe that we will all agree that wearing something comfortable is the best fashion tip.
