Fashion: Fashionista’s Ultimate Must-Haves for Travel. #fashion #fashionista

Packing for fashion is practically an art form. Not only do you have to be practical and restrain yourself from packing ten pairs of your cutest heels, but you also need to find things that are comfy, versatile, and above all, totally glamorous. Not an easy thing to do with all the luggage restrictions, but for a skillful diva who knows her garments it can be managed – as long as you know all the right tips and tricks. Luckily, that’s why you have us. If you’re going on a vacation and want to look fabulous, here are a few things you’ll definitely want to bring. 

Light Layers

Finding enough space in your suitcase is already a struggle, so you really don’t need to take up even more with bulky jackets and thick wooly sweaters. The key to style and warmth are layers. Cute, classy, and light – cardigans, suit jackets, lacy undershirts, tights, sexy knee-high socks. Things that are easy to layer with shirts and blouses, and something that will offer you a lot of versatility.

Sexy jeans

Jeans are very wearable and you can dress them up or dress them down in any way you want. With a slinky black top and some heels they can be worn in the evening, and with a plain cotton tee you’re ready for the day. So, bring that one pair of jeans that fit you like a glove, that make you feel sexy. It’s a great option because it lets you have one go-to garment that you simply know will look good on you no matter what.

Plenty of neutrals

It doesn’t necessarily have to be neutrals, but it should be one color scheme. It’s much easier to match your clothes when everything’s within the same color family, and you won’t get a headache when you arrive at the hotel and realized you somehow managed to pack stuff that’s pretty, but that can’t be worn together. You can also stick to neutral staples like pants, skirts, jackets, and shoes, but then break the monotony with colorful blouses and tees. 

Glam swimwear

What kind of a vacation is it if you can’t bring your bathing suit with you? High-class fashionistas know that you need one even if you’re not going to the beach because good hotels are full of swimming pools, saunas, spas, and wellness centers. To make sure you’re ready for relaxation, bring a hot bikini that enhances your curves and makes you feel totally sultry. After all, swimwear is tiny, it’s not like it will take up too much space in your suitcase.

Comfy shoes

If you plan to walk a lot, then you will need comfy shoes. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t also pack a sleek pair of pumps for the evenings, and it doesn’t mean that comfy things will necessarily be boring. A cute pair of ankle boots, maybe some sassy high-tops, ballet flats, espadrilles, chunky sandals – anything as long as you can walk in it for a long time with no trouble. Bear in mind that the dad sneaker trend is still going strong, so feel free to use that to your advantage.

Accessory overload

While you do have to restrain yourself somewhat when it comes to clothes, the rule doesn’t apply to accessories. They’re small and easy to pack, and you can totally go for super colorful chunky earrings or big cocktail rings, or chain necklaces to style your outfits. We recommend bringing a few silky scarves and possibly a nice hat to add some easy drama to casual getups.

The perfect makeup palette

Makeup can be an accessory as well, and for a fashion-lover, it’s something that can significantly impact their outfit. We recommend that you bring one eyeshadow palette full of your favorite shades, one nude lipstick, and one vampy lipstick. While you absolutely don’t need a lot of makeup when you travel, a little bit can really make you feel polished and glamorous.


When in doubt, go for a little black dress. If you’re not sure what to expect from your trip and need something that can work for any occasion, choose a plain LBD. If worn with a blazer it can be professional if worn with heels and a belt it can be sexy, and if worn with a cardigan and some flat shoes it can be a cute brunch outfit.

No matter where you go, good fashion will put you in a great mood and make you feel sexy, so pack well and have fun!
