Things that You Should Wear while Traveling
July 22, 2019
Travel is not something that you should take lightly. Going abroad, for example, means that you will be far away from your home and fresh clothes. If you end up bringing summer clothes to a cold climate, you might end up getting a cold or even worse. Bringing a pair of boots to a summer trip can also be a bad idea. Here are some clothes that you should bring with you on your next trip.
This is a variable subject, as the idea of comfort is not the same for all people. This is not even the crux of the issue, as some people keep recommending fashionable products instead of comfortable ones. Traveling in high heels or very tight jeans is a bad idea. No matter how much you like them, your legs will feel the consequences.
You should wear whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. If that happens to be a pair of sweatpants and a tank top, then go for it. If it is instead a suit, then that should be your priority. There is no reason why comfortable clothes cannot be fashionable as well, and lastly, about 99% of the people you encounter will not care about your clothes.
IF you are traveling far north or south, the weather is probably going to be cold. If you are traveling somewhere near the equator, then you will most likely need summer clothes. Pack appropriately, and get layers of clothing. For a summer trip, get your favorite summer clothes but also do some research on whether the nights might get cold and whether the place you’re planning to stay in has some over-the-top air conditioning running all the time.
Winter travel requires layers and layers of clothes, with the innermost and outermost ones being easy to dry. A solid pair of winter boots is a must, not to mention a hat and a pair of gloves.
Do some research on whether the country you are traveling to has some culture-specific views about clothing. Some religious countries can find a provocative dress very offensive while others might not even give it a second look. Some cultures, even, have specific views about clothing so pay attention to that before you even board your transport.
Likewise, if you are going to specific events, bring the appropriate clothes. A sports event requires sweatpants or shorts, and a breathable top. A dinner at a restaurant requires something a bit more sophisticated like a suit. You probably made plans about the places you are going to visit, so preparing clothes that fit the occasion should not be an issue.
Backpack or Purse
You want to pack a light backpack or purse which should handle all your shopping and exploring needs. Whichever one you prefer, just stay away from fanny packs as they put a tourist target on your back immediately.
These are some of the essentials when traveling. Travel light and travel smart.
