Are you preparing to head on vacation but want to be sure that you look fashionable and chic throughout your travels? Feeling put together doesn’t just give you confidence, it means you’ll also be able to walk into any restaurant, shop, museum, or other attraction and feel as though you’re dressed appropriately. You can focus on having a great time on your holidays rather than fussing about your outfit.
To take all the questions out of packing, we’ve gone ahead and put together five handy tips that will ensure you look stylish from the moment your trip gets started, until you arrive back home.
Pick a Colour Palette and Stick to It
One trick is to choose a colour palette that you will wear while on holiday, and then choose all your outfits, accessories, and footwear based on that palette. This makes packing so much easier as it automatically rules out a number of choices, narrowing down your options immediately. If you have plans of picking up some new clothes for your vacation, this will also help you to find the pieces that will work.
In terms of what colour palette is best, you want to pick colours that you feel comfortable in, those that flatter you, and that match with that you’ll be doing. For example, if your trip is two weeks travelling through the Greek Islands, then neutral colours such as white, tan, and beige can be perfect. Meanwhile, if it’s a tropical island you’re off to, maybe a brighter colour palette makes sense.
Pick a Purse that Works with Any Outfit
In order to save space in your luggage, you will likely only want to pack one purse that gets you through day and night activities. With that said, you want to pick one that is “universal”, meaning it will work with casual outfits and your dressier ones.
Designer Saint Laurent bags, which you can find through sites like SSENSE, can be an excellent way to go. These are classic pieces rather than trendy ones, so you know they will work with anything you have on. And because they are designer, you know they are constructed well so you don’t have to worry about a strap breaking, or a tear in the bottom while you’re out touring around. SSENSE is well-known for its massive selection of high end accessories, so even if Saint Laurent isn’t really your style, there is sure to be a designer you do jive with.
Choose Simple Makeup and Hairstyles
As for your makeup and hairstyle, typically less is more while on holidays. You don’t want to have to spend hours getting ready each morning, so stick to the basics and keep your look clean and natural.
Pinning your hair back with a ponytail or a bun can be a great way to keep your hair out of your face while still looking very chic and trendy. As for your makeup, use the model-tips and keep your base light with either a tinted moisturizer or BB cream, add a touch of bronzer and blush, mascara, and a great hydrating lip gloss.
