If you are a travel lover, I think you always have problems like this: ” how to pack for a trip?” or ” how to choose comfortable clothing?” When I was a freshman for traveling, I think this is the most common and most stressful problem before starting off. During that time, I always choose the “home clothes” or “throw-away wear” for my trips, however, I find my clothes are ” too common ” for photography, I mean, which really lacks of beauty.
How to choose clothes that include “comfort” and “beauty” for our trips? Here are some useful suggestions.
1. Linen/cotton linen clothing is the must-prepared item
Linen/cotton linen clothing can be worn in any kind of weather. It can even be worn in hot and humid weather because it is highly absorbent. That’s the most important reason why I said linen/cotton linen is must-have for you all.
Linen clothing makes you feel fresh because it is not sticky and removes skin perspirations. Linen/cotton linen clothing can be tailored without any trouble. What’s more, it can be washed and dried easily, even be hand-washed. In fact, washing makes such clothing softer, however, make sure you use soft water.
It does not stretch or elongate but keeps in shape even after routine washes, hanging, and ironing. It can be printed, finished, and designed easily. At last, this kind of clothes occupy less space and are lightweight, which is pretty convenient for packing up the luggage. Again being an advocate of natural fabric, I suggest linen/cotton linen, especially when you are a backpacker and like to head to a tropical country.
2. Basic clothing is best for a city tour
Basic casual t-shirt, polo shirt, sweater, fleece or hooded jacket, these simple items are good for city traveling, such as Rome, London. Black, brown or other dark-colored clothing is resistance soiling and available for any occasion. But white sneakers are not a good choice although they works for any outfits.
3. Maxi Dress can create a vacation atmosphere
The cotton linen maxi dress or the chiffon dress is easy to show the feminine beauty and women’s tender aura. Try to put on a scarf or some ethnic accessories to make your look into the next level. The relaxing holiday atmosphere can let you enjoy your beautiful moment.
4. Scarf/tippet is useful to your travel
Bring a nice, big, stylish oversized scarf that can double as a blanket and pillow. Cold-proof, sun-shaded and could be used for carpet. It’s the worst when you’re flying on a budget airline that makes you purchase blankets!
