What’s the tip?
Small Ways to Boost Your Travel Wardrobe
Buy a Basic T-Shirt – One that fits well to your body can be worn tucked into a pencil skirt for a dressy or business-friendly look or with jeans for a casual day of sightseeing. For men, a tailored tee can even be worn under a blazer. Rollable and relatively wrinkle-free, the basic tee will extend your wardrobe by days.
Wear Reversible Clothes – Reversible clothes can add color to your travel wardrobe and give you plenty of options, all in one garment.
Neutrals Are Your Friends – When in doubt, pack a palette of neutrals: White, black, creams, and grays are generally good base colors for summer or winter vacation wardrobes.
Invest In Versatile Footwear – Pack ballet flats that are comfortable for walking around museums but also look elegant enough for a cocktail party. Pull-on riding boots can be worn with jeans or dresses and are a great option for airport security lines since they slip on and off. In general, high-quality shoes with solid soles are your best bets for traveling.
Bring Smart Accessories – Pack chunky, colorful necklaces that won’t tangle and bright, lightweight scarves to give your travel outfits a bit of pop without weighing down your carry-on.
Look For Garments That Perform Double Duty – For example, a wrap with 50 UPF sun protection and, for men, sun-blocking shirts. Convertible bags will also extend your wardrobe and lighten your carry-on load.
