One rule of thumb when traveling is to travel light as you can. This means you only need to bring the essential things you need for your trip and leave everything else behind. But this doesn’t mean that you don’t have to look stylish. In fact, traveling is the perfect opportunity to look good and neat.
It may sound easier for men to know what to bring on the road. After all, the good old T-shirt and jeans combination works almost all the time. It doesn’t hurt to mix things up to avoid looking shabby and monotonous on your travel photos.
If you’re looking planning your trip now and also want to look fashionable when on the road, here are some tips that you can try:
Get a nice haircut
Before you set out on your next adventure, make sure to get a nice haircut first. A clean classic haircut for men can work well with just about every look and will definitely give you more style points. They never go out of fashion plus they are easy to maintain. Just bring your favorite pomade so you can still yours if you want to change things a bit every day.
Coordinate the colors
The secret behind mix-and-matching clothes is choosing colors that complement each other. You don’t have to think twice anymore whether the T-shirt you brought goes well with your favorite a blazer or the color of your shoes matches your overall look.
It helps to read about the place you are visiting and try to pick the colors that will look good and not muted in that environment.
Don’t get so fussy about shoes
When traveling, generally you want to wear the comfiest pair of shoes that you have, but it is best to bring a pair that can you use for a variety of purposes. Loafers for example are great for walking tours and city tours, but you can also use them for formal or semi-formal events. They are very handy especially if you need to attend an event somewhere along your trip.
Of course, be sure to bring sneakers as well for variety. Just be sure to bring the lightweight ones so you don’t have to worry about your luggage weight.
Don’t be afraid of accessories
You might have read this one a thousand times, but accessories do help a lot in improving an otherwise regular outfit. Also, they do not take up so much space in your bag, so you can bring as many as you need.
For example, wearing sunglasses, apart from protecting your eyes from ultraviolet rays, can add a touch of class to your overall look. If you’re expecting the weather to be cold, a good scarf can be handy. Lastly, you can’t go wrong with a sturdy wristwatch if you want to upgrade your daily traveling ensemble.
Traveling does not have to stifle your fashion sense. You can still be trendy and look dapper even if when on the road. Remember, when you know how to dress right and good, the world is your runway.
