Packing Light: Top Styling Tips For Travellers

 Packing light has never been more advantageous. As prices for baggage increase and headlines tell of travel chaos at airports, it’s a great idea to save yourself time and money by taking a carry-on with you. If you’re planning a getaway, and you want to travel light while ensuring you look the part, here are some top styling tips. 

Create a capsule wardrobe

Creating a capsule wardrobe for your trip is a brilliant way to streamline the packing process, save money on excess luggage and make getting ready a breeze during your holiday. The idea of a capsule collection is to use a small number of items to produce an array of outfit options. Tailor your wardrobe to suit the destination and your holiday plans. For a beach break, you’ll need mens muscle fit T shirts, shorts, swimming trunks and smarter attire for the evening, such as shirts and chinos or tailored shorts. If you take a couple of options for the top and bottom, you can mix and match. It’s worth investing in high-quality basics that fit you well. Once you have the essentials, you can add seasonal pieces to freshen up your look. If you’re heading to a tropical location, for example, you may want to jazz up your shorts or chinos with a bright or patterned short-sleeve shirt. 

Add accessories

Adding accessories is a great way to make your wardrobe more versatile and dress clothing up or down. By changing your accessories, you can create a totally different look. This is ideal for resort holidays and city breaks when you’re going from the beach to the bar or museums and galleries to fancy restaurants. For a cool daytime look, for example, you can team a fitted t-shirt, shorts and an oversized, open shirt with aviator shades and sliders. For the evening, button the shirt up, add loafers or deck shoes and finish with a belt and a chunky watch. 

Opt for versatile pieces

Versatility is key when you’re short on space in your suitcase. Once you know where you’re going, what the weather will be like and what you’re doing, use versatile pieces to put outfits together. You can dress staples, like tailored linen trousers, up or down. Add pumps and a casual t-shirt and shades for sightseeing or a walk along the beach. For dinner or drinks, add leather sandals and a fitted shirt. 

Check the forecast

Before you start packing for any trip, check the forecast. If it’s going to be 30 degrees and wall-to-wall sunshine, you don’t need to pack jumpers, sweaters or coats. If it’s going to be mixed weather, add layers and a waterproof. If you’re visiting a cold destination, leave the sun hats, trunks and shorts at home. 

It can be expensive to take a large case on holiday, and many airports are reporting delays. If you’re keen to travel light, beat the queues and save money this summer, while ensuring you look stylish, take these tips on board. Create a capsule wardrobe, choose versatile pieces, add accessories and always check the weather forecast.
