Now that spring is upon us, most of you are probably itching to go somewhere and have a much-needed interlude. If you are setting your sights on spring traveling, you better learn a thing or two on how to pack right. I’m sure you’d want to save a bit of space in your luggage for all your souvenir purchases, wouldn’t you?
On the other hand, you don’t want to compromise your style. You still would want to look cute in your travel photos. So here is a guide that will help you make the right clothing choices when traveling this season.
1. Find a good dress with the right length, fit and silhouette.
It’s all about comfort when traveling and you don’t want to constantly fret over your dress, worrying whether it’s too short. A 60’s-inspired frock with a hemline that sits right on your knee or slightly below your knee can keep you tastefully stylish. It also works for when you visit places that require visitors to dress up decently (churches, museums).
2. Test the fit of the arms and make sure your upper body can move freely.
A tight bodice or a fitted armhole can restrict movements when traveling so make sure you fit your dresses first before packing them up.
3. Bring outerwear.
A light cardigan or a coat you can drape over your shoulders will help fend off the chill for when the weather starts turning bipolar. A cute dresscoat is indispensable as it injects more than a semblance of charm to your outfit and serves to keep you warm.
4. Choose dresses that don’t wrinkle easily.
Dresses with stretch fabrics are ideal to bring during travels as they do not wrinkle easily. They are easy to roll in your luggage too when packing. Opt for chiffon dresses or cotton dresses as they are manageable and they don’t take up a lot of space.
5. Choose dresses that won’t give you a hard time with underclothing.
Sleeveless dresses, for instance, tend to be high maintenance as you have to worry about the kind of undergarment to use. You don’t want your bra strap to peek out of your clothing, do you? It’s safer to go for dresses with short or long sleeves.
6. Pack a dress that can double as evening wear.
Just in case you and your travel companion find a posh place you can dine in, you need a dress that is spiffy enough to work as evening wear.
I hope these simple tips help you in some way. Arm yourself with the right frocks for traveling and you can just allow yourself to enjoy your vacation!
