How to plan outfits for a holiday?8:00 PM
- Separates e.g. tops, blouses, shorts, jeans, skirts, etc.
- Flats/Wedges (comfortable footwear)
- Light-weight dresses (depends on the location & occasion)
- A Stole (shawl/scarf)
- Light Jacket (depends on the weather/location)
Let me explain with examples from my recent trip:
Leggings - Most comfortable piece of clothing, while traveling. Now I wore is the same one, thrice on this trip. Paired it with a tunic and then again with a short dress below. And again with a chambray shirt (if you scroll down). They are a good companion to have when it is not warm enough for shorts, and neither cold enough for jeans.
Polka dot/Striped Blouses - I am a fan of over sized tops/blouses. Now I picked up this from Banana Republic Sale this spring and it is "large" in size. Two of me could fit into one, but since I like the slouchy fit, I can pair it over anything and/or tuck it in to give it some definition. A gem to carry, while traveling.
Comfortable Jeans - These are separate from the travel ones. A pair of light and comfortable jeans for all those times when nothing else works. Wear them with tee, blouse, shirts or just wear a dress and tuck it in, like I did. There are truly no end to how may outfits with you can create here.
I could have easily created 10 more outfits just out of these same pieces! So the mantra here is -
- Plan ahead (yeah! I plan outfits but not my life!)
- Think out of the box
- Think comfort
- Think less baggage (as much as possible!)
