Long Term Travel Style Guide
Just because you are traveling long term or even living out of a backpack doesn’t mean your style has to go out the window. There are many ways to keep your trendy look even when you are hundreds of miles from your closet.
Accessorize- You will be bombarded on the streets of whatever destination you go to with accessories. Use this to your advantage. It’s amazing what adding a necklace, bracelet or even a flower in your hair can do for your look. Keep a small plastic baggy in your backpack of colorful accessories to add to your outfit.
Alternate Options- Mix and Match. By simply switching a tank top to a different bottom can make a whole new outfit. Match jeans to a tank top, take that same tank top and wear it with that fabulous skirt you have rolled away in the corner of your backpack.
Up Do’s- There are many ways that you can pull your hair back that makes a casual outfit look more like a fancy outfit. The Audrey Hepburn bun, the classic french braid, or even a simple twist can add glam to any casual outfit.
Shoes- The last thing you want is to pack too many shoes. They are the heaviest. Pack your necessities: running shoes, flip flops and a pair of ballet flats. Skinny jeans, tank, scarf and ballet flats and you are ready for a night out in the town.
Add Color- You can wear the same outfit over and over. Add a new color each time you wear it. Maybe it’s a red scarf, blue earrings, or a bright yellow bangle. By just adding a glimpse of color can give the illusion that you are wearing a whole new outfit.
Shop Cheap- Choose inexpensive go-to stores while traveling. H&M, Zara, etc. They are everywhere and they are cheap. You can swap out tank tops, add a new skirt and even pick up some cheap jewelry. It’s a good way to mix up the wardrobe without breaking the budget.
