What is style?

According to the Oxford Dictionary, style refers to; the particular way in which something is done.

So, “Travelling in style” is best done to suit your unique personality. There is no need to get fancy about the products or fashion in travel wear. After all, how practical is that when you know your best clothes are going to get crumpled?

Be yourself, it’s the best way to feel in control of a situation and stay stylish and comfortable. That being said, we are all a different kind of traveller and so have our own unique style.

We identified 4 types of travellers.

The Check-listed Traveller – Specific tips for your unique travel style.                                      Is Planned and Organized. Guess what? The whole world is kind of jealous of a person like you. Planning and organizing is not everyone’s cup of tea (or coffee), is it? You normally have the last laugh because you researched and prepared for unusual circumstances too. You’re more like travel databases. Everyone simply needs to come to you for tips and they are better off. So, Cherish this.

WHAT TO PACK FOR TRAVEL.

Travelling is a gruelling process, even on an aeroplane. The airconditioning would make your skin dry, or the lack thereof would definitely make it very oily. To avoid looking weathered upon arrival, be sure to carry some essentials for a quick clean up. Example; face wash, moisturiser, hair gel, wet wipes, and makeup. 

Some other items that come in handy if cabin pressure is too high; nasal spray, earbuds, and ear drops.

THE WANDERER TRAVELLER

Travelling in style requires you to pack just what you need. You usually pack light and efficiently. You’ve researched your destination in such detail that you can buy anything not packed when you arrive. Probably at a cheaper price, plus it gets used up so you don’t have to carry those back. Maybe we covered all of them here?

WHAT TO PACK

Since you are more of a backpack person, consider packing in cubes. This way you can segregate the items you need during travel and after travel.

  1. Shoes: Choose your most comfortable shoes for your travel. Like your regular outdoor walking shoes which you wear to leave your home.
  2. Socks: Compression socks to keep you warm and to circulate blood in your legs. This is important because you cannot afford to arrive at your destination with cramped feet for the first couple of hours.
  3. Tops & Bottoms: Wear comfortable clothes and also carry a jacket or sweater to beat the air conditioning inflight.
  4. Umbrella, Raincoat: Since you plan to spend your time outdoors, be prepared for anything unpredictable. Don’t let the weather spoil your plans. Watching birds get wet and dancing in a puddle is fun but not if you don’t carry extra pairs of dresses to change into later.
  5. Snacks, Coffee Mugs: And even wine (wink). If you like the occasional glass or two, then carrying it for difficult times would be great. Just don’t overdo it because you did not travel all the way to spend your time in a parking lot!! Sometimes airline snacks are expensive, so it’s better to carry your own in the travel packing cube.

Refer to this video to learn how to pack light and all in one single backpack.

THINGS YOU CAN BUY ON ARRIVAL

Those could be items you are not particular about when it comes to the brand. First of all, ensure that you have access to clean water and the right supply of snacks. Food and water shouldn’t stop you from going a little farther.

  1. Sanitary supplies – Those needn’t be carried along. Some good hotels have their own stores where you can get all these.
  2. Swim supplies – Unless you are brand conscious, hotel stores or nearby stores do have some good options. You could get them very cheap too.
  3. Souvenir – Now, You don’t have to buy them after you arrive, but they are great to bring back memories. Some destinations have unique things Customs when it comes to souvenirs. In the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, tourists are not allowed to pick seashells from the beach but can buy them from the stores. Like the one shown below.

Be sure not to leave your home without a camera, tripod, phone earphones and all chargers if you love capturing moments. Staying camera-ready means you can go live on social media and share your adventures with your followers and loved ones.

“Everything is better with Bluetooth” – Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory)

With the advent of technology every second, you could go for innovative chargers which require no wires making your packs look cleaner and organized. All the best for your future trips.

If you would like to share anything interesting that was camera-worthy and you just happened to be there. No amount of wait could have made that happen.

THE INSTAGRAM-CANDY TRAVELER

Travellers like you are such an inspiration because you love yourself, and everything around you so much that positivity can’t be ignored. This only means that you are just as planned and organised as the check-listed traveller. Travelling is style is part of your whole aesthetic.

PLANNING STAGE

Research the destination:

The weather (temperature, rainy or snowy, hot during the period of stay etc.)

The picturesque locations in and around your place of stay.

Since every place creates a story, a perfect choice of clothes as per the weather and terrain is important. Style is great when it is comfortable too. But at the same time, the choice of colour is crucial. It should either blend or stand out depending on the location.

For example, if it’s a rusty place or a heritage site with browns or greys as background, you could go with brighter shades and vice versa, if the surrounding is already colourful.

Weather plays a major role in choosing your travel style. Though the filmy side of me would often argue otherwise.

LET’S HAVE FUN STAGE

As essentials, sunscreen, shades, and cotton scarves are a must for a trip to a beach location or hotter climates. Tans are still fine, but heat strokes are major mood spoilers and can get hazardous too.

Carry a sling bag in your suitcase or backpack, which you can carry around while sightseeing. The sling bag should hold all the essentials in it.

Pack your sling bag already with these:

  1. You can’t do away without lip colour. You should go for a non-transferrable one so you won’t have to reapply it every now and then. If you have plans to change your dress more than once a day, then you should carry a matching pair of makeup. Otherwise, it does not make much sense to carry your makeup around. Lesser things, lesser worries, don’t you think?
  2. Sanitizers, moisturisers, Pocket wet wipes, Vaseline to avoid dry skin. You would wish to look radiant in your pictures and not wrinkly or flaky right?
  3. Don’t forget your favourite chocolate or candy to raise your mood before that perfect shot. Not just that, you do get hungry when you are doing a lot of travelling. Climbing high altitudes and colder regions, or places where you simply can’t find any food.
  4. Last but not the least, a selfie stick for our Instagram-Candy travellers.

Your overall look should be planned according to what looks good on you, not what looks good on a fashion model. Definitely take the culture of your destination into consideration. Mingling well culturally will make you more appealing to the scene as well as to the people around you. For example, if there are temples and a nice beach both on the list then consider carrying a wrap-around skirt or a wrap-around dress for the temple, remove that for next destination.

THE LAST MINUTE TRAVELLER

Well, there is no planning required here because there is none done. There are two kinds of people: One that ends up in a situation when there is no time to plan, and another who simply decides NOT TO PLAN.

If you’re the former, you could actually have pre-packed luggage if you anticipated like this to happen.

If you’re the latter, rather than a list of what to pack, let’s go over the important things you could miss while packing and end up with heavy luggage that is filled with useless things.

Because otherwise, you won’t be able to travel.

Your tickets, which means your mobile phone too., cash (local currency of the destination), credit cards, mobile charger or backup.

A few pairs of tops and bottoms, innerwear, socks and shoes.

The rest can be bought, so you’re good.

There is a thrill to deciding to travel someplace a fortnight before you leave. Packing the essentials and just hitting the road, but doing that in style? Possible!

Our advice doesn’t change here, dress comfortably and wear what suits your personality. You need just the essentials with functional suitcases that go with your overall look.

Since there is very little planning involved, accommodation is difficult to find. So, what we suggest to our last-minute travellers is; make a lot of friends all over the world. If you have friends, family or acquaintances staying at your destination, you could be their house guest. Consider Airbnb and Oyo to book rooms on short notice if you don’t know anyone where you’re going.

BOTTOMS FOR WOMEN

Consider; Jeans, Cargo Pants, Joggers, Shorts, Harem Pants, and Track Pants. They are comfortable yet stylish!

TOPS FOR MEN
