Heading off to a road trip is always exciting. Cruising through the open countryside, stopping at cute dhaabas and, of course, clicking loads of pictures along the way. Packing for a road trip can be tricky. Space is at a premium, so you have to make sure your luggage is as minimal as possible. But that doesn’t mean you can’t follow hot fashion trends!
Here are some nifty tips to help you pack all your favorite fashion styles the next time you’re hitting the road:
Mix And Match Wisely
The key is to get as many looks as possible with the fewest trendy clothes. Make sure that all the in-fashion tops and bottoms you pack can be paired with each other, for some easy mix-and-match looks. Even taking along 3 tops and 3 bottoms that go with one another allows you to create 9 unique looks! This will let you show off different fashion styles without feeling like you’re repeating outfits. For easy pairing, carry pieces in neutral tones that go with almost everything.
Pick Fuss-Free Fabrics
The last thing you want to be doing on your road trip is fiddling with delicate fabrics and trying to find a spot to iron your high-fashion clothes. Free up some space in your luggage by leaving the iron at home and pack pieces made of easy-maintenance fabrics. Knitted fabrics like jersey and viscose work well as they do not get wrinkled too easily. You can also carry along a couple of LIVA dresses for some comfortable fluid fashion.
Jazz Up Your Look With Fashion Accessories
The right accessories can completely transform the appearance of your trendy clothes. You can wear the same top with a layered necklace or with a pair of dangler earrings for 2 completely different fashion styles. The best part about accessories is, they don’t take up too much space, so you can pack in loads of them for different looks. Experiment with scarves, hats, and sunglasses for some road trip ready fashion trends.
Carry A Large Handbag
A large handbag like a tote bag or a backpack can be your best friend during a road trip. Not only will it add a dash of chicness to your trendy clothes, it can also be used to stash items that wouldn’t fit in your suitcase! From your sunglasses and scarves to an entire outfit (you know spills are just waiting to happen), there’s little an oversized handbag can’t do. You can also use it to carry important items like contact lens cases and sanitary napkins, instead of having to stop and fumble in the trunk.
Denims All The Way
Denims may not be the best option to wear while you’re actually on your road trip but they work ridiculously well for the destination. Denim is one of the most low maintenance fabrics, so unless you participate in any messy activities, you can wear the same piece multiple times throughout your trip. Denims also pair well with other pieces, allowing you to create a variety of fashion styles. Go beyond the usual jeans and set some fashion trends with denim skirts, shorts and dresses.
