Posted on 6 June 2024 By Nomvelo Masango

When you are exploring a new destination, comfort is important. Equally, it is good to ensure that you look stylish. After all, you’re on vacation! The last thing you want is to look back at the outfits in your vacation pictures with regret.

Combining style and comfort is useful when travelling. Here are some tips to ensure that you’re looking stylish and feeling comfortable:

Bring comfortable but stylish footwear

When on vacation, you will spend most of your time exploring and discovering new places. Thus, there will be very little need for heels. Rather, bring different pairs of flat, comfortable and stylish shoes.

Learn the art of layering

Layering will help you avoid feeling too hot or too cold. If you start to overheat, you can always remove a layer. Once it starts getting chilly, the layer can be added back on. Be intentional about co-ordinating the colours of the fashion items you choose to layer up. This way, you will still look stylish even if there is a clothing item which you decide to take off.

Ensure that your clothes actually fit

It is important to pack clothes that fit comfortably. Avoid shirts that restrict arm and shoulder movement, as well as pants that are uncomfortably tight. Clothes that are too small will not look good on you, and they will also make you far less comfortable.

Add the right accessories

Adding the right accessories can elevate your look. A nice pair of sunglasses and some modest jewellery normally do the trick. Avoid wearing accessories which are too flashy. Moreover, adding a stylish crossbody bag will help you to securely carry all your belongings as you explore.
