Travelling can be fun if your outfit is comfortable enough. True, choosing travel clothes is an individual decision, where personal preferences come to play, but other than their chic quotient, other factors also count. More importantly, the outfit should best suit the destination you are travelling to. As such, for any travelling, lighter clothing is mostly preferred.


Choose better travel clothes for women

Planning: Plan in accordance with the weather predicted for destination. It would be good to choose light clothing if the weather is dry and hot. Woolen outfits would be the natural choice for colder climes. Be ready to face probable weather surprises with a warm sweater or light travel jacket.

Outfits in cotton or wash and wear fabrics work well with any sort of climate. Remember, no one likes to spend their vacation ironing their outfits. Very light colors tend to show any dirt or grime. Do not neglect sunglasses and scarves.


Activities involved: The nature of outdoor activities must be considered. For instance, if you are likely to swim, pack up your swimsuit or other necessary outfits.


Dress in layers: This means that dressing items can be added to or removed individually without changing everything when the weather changes. For instance, instead of a heavy overcoat, wear a sweater or a wind breaker. If it gets too warm in the afternoon, take off the sweater and carry it in a shopping bag. Dressing in layers requires that your clothes be complementary and mixable.


Mode of travel: Regardless of whether you are taking a long flight or not, comfort is the most important aspect for air travel. Even if you are travelling for business, you must be able to change into business clothes as soon as you arrive at your destination, even in the airport restrooms. If you are on a backpack trip, take clothes are versatile and multi-functional.


Comfortable travel clothes

The way you dress when you move around the world is important from the following points of view:


  • It affects your safety

  • It affects your social interactions

  • It can affect your travel adventure (make or break)

  • Very heavy baggage can make you tired and also vulnerable.


Women travel clothes styles

Here the best bet is to go for quality, even if it is a little more expensive. Good seams, good stitching and fine finishing not only make you look good but are also durable while on the road.

As recommended earlier, women's travel clothes should be lightweight, easy to pack, easy to care and versatile. Sensible women choose clothes that are practical and stylish at once.


Scarf is fashionable to keep your neck warm and not look like a tourist. It is good to keep one in your carryon luggage or wear it. The cool dry air in airplanes can give you a chill.

Pick up good looking, durable pair of shoes for travel. An average pair of polished black slip-ons can get you in the door anywhere. Some may prefer sandals instead of shoes. The advantage in wearing sandals is that in airports and flights, you can kick them off and slip them back on in a second. In some hotels where the toilet is down the hall, slip them on when making a trip.

It is necessary to carry an extra pair of shoes as it is likely that your shoes might get soaked occasionally. Natural leather uppers can be oiled and they resist water like wax paper.

Rain gear is essential for protection from weather. A telescoping umbrella must be carried. A lightweight hooded mackintosh is handy for frequent day drizzles. A light pair of leather gloves and a hat is helpful for off-season travel.


Travel Clothes steamer


Travel cloth steamers can keep your clothes like new without the hassle of ironing by getting all those wrinkles out. Carrying a reliable travel cloth steamer is essential especially when you are travelling around with easy to wrinkle garments made of silk and such materials.

There are plenty of compact travel steamers in the market which help to remove difficult wrinkles and folds on all fabrics faster than standard irons. The small, lightweight ones fit easily into your travelling bag or purse and can be used on the road. No ironing board is required. The clothes can be simply made to hang and you move wand up and down the fabric. Such travel steamers come with accessories such as water tank, upholstery brush, flat brush and detail brush attachments.


Iron travel clothes

There are dual voltage travel steamer irons which are so designed to be used around the world. They have compact design and folding handle making it easy to pack up and to take on trips. Temperature control, indicator lights are attached. It would be better to travel with clothes that do not stretch or wrinkle. There is no need to iron these.


General tips on travel clothes


  • It would be best to travel as lightweight as possible. You surely do not want a heavy backpack, especially if you have to walk a lot.

  • The drying speed of the clothes is important - the faster, the better.

  • Clothes that wrinkle as light as possible are preferred.

  • It should be wise to take items that can be mixed and matched and layered.

  • Do not take clothes that are not color fast when they are washed.

  • Travel clothes' pockets should have secure fastenings.

  • Comfort is a priority feature.

  • Temperature control is vital - clothes need not be very hot or cold.

  • Resistance to stains is an added advantage.

  • Water repellent properties are good for travel.

  • It is necessary to check the cultural appropriateness when it comes to travel clothes.


The best advice to women travelers is to 'pack light'. You can always pack a loose fitting neutral dark pants suit, a few of your best blouses, some splashy scarves and a string of pearls. With this, you can look right sharp in any part of the world, and be cool at once.
