Now that you’re prepared for packing for the beach, let’s talk a bit about your travel wardrobe if you’re flying to your beach destination!
Tips for having a comfortable and well-thought-out travel wardrobe
If you are from a warm-weather state traveling to a colder climate, dress for your destination! Think lighter weight but warmer fabrics for the plane, carry your coat, and always have a wrap. You’ll thank me at the arrival airport.
If you are traveling from a cold-weather state to a warm-weather state, do not dress for your destination but dress accordingly to your current climate, with slightly lighter fabrics, and layers, which you can remove once you land. I believe in being comfortable but chic on the plane. I’m sure I don’t always look chic, however, I do always plan what I will wear on the plane going and coming. It’s usually the same outfit, with layers, coordinating tote, purse, and shoes(sneaks or boots). I don’t really dress up, although I was raised to do that on airplanes way back when:-)
You can look polished with a great knit pant or stretch jeans, a nice knit top layered with a great comfy duster, cardigan sweater, or blazer depending on where you are traveling to.
Flat shoes, boots, or cool sneakers are perfect for getting through the airport. It will depend on where you are traveling to and what for.
I love great cashmere knit coordinates for long or overnight travel, and athleisure wear is perfectly acceptable too if where you are traveling has that vibe! (it’s not really the time to wear your regular workout clothes though)
Do you think you’re a good packer for trips?
Maybe you are or maybe you need some more packing tips.
One of the biggest ways to be prepared is to make an itinerary and print it out! This will help you know the area and you can plan based on that.
Other quick packing hacks and tips to remember:
- Stick to a more neutral color palette then pick 1-2 “pop” color/s to add-in
- Pack pieces you wear now, not pieces you’ve never worn and think they might work better for vacation
- Pack pieces that work together and can make several different outfits
- Pack 1 evening bag that will work for each night
- Pack 2 shoes for the day(1 of which you will wear on the plane), and 1-2 for the night, depending on the length of trip and amount of walking you will do
- Use packing cubes if you aren’t very organized. They are great!
