Pandemic tourist suitcase - how to put together a fashionable wardrobe for travel

Rugby Editorial 7th Jun, 2021   0

When packing your suitcase, we recommend focusing on the essentials, since the main fashion trend of the coronavirus pandemic has become conscious consumption, functionality and convenience.

This year, many travellers will be on vacation at home without being able to travel to other countries due to quarantine restrictions. We don’t recommend taking several pairs of shoes, trousers and shirts with you. And from experience, we all remember that most of the clothes taken on vacation will not be worn by you.

That is why we recommend developing a basic universal wardrobe for travel. Depending on the circumstances and place you travel to, you can easily include several additional items. This approach will save not only your nerves but also precious time, so you can get ready for the trip within an hour. This is especially important if the vouchers are bought at a “hot” price.

The safari jacket

It’s hard to argue that the safari jacket is firmly at the top of the list of the most important wardrobe items for the modern traveller. This type of outerwear has been tested by time and has proven itself as a part of the wardrobe for any case. The safari jacket has been presented in the designers’ collections since the mid-1950s, and Christian Dior was one of the first to confirm the significance of this garment. The jackets are very popular with athletes, the news about which you can check at, and the clothes still present in the wardrobes of professionals of both genders. Sometimes it is presented in the form of a jacket, a shirt with many pockets or a vest.

Cross-body bag

Such an accessory is simply essential for a trip, especially if you have planned a walk around the city or a sightseeing tour. In addition to the fact that the cross-body bag has been at the top of fashion trends for several seasons in a row, it is comfortable and functional. Plus it is difficult to steal or pull out of your hands, and you can put everything you need in it: for example, your phone and your car keys.

This bag is perfect and easy to match with any fashionable look and shoes in any style, and is also suitable for both men and women, depending on the model.

Thick linen clothes

Linen clothes are also the optimal travel solution for both sexes. Overalls, trousers, suits (jacket and trousers or pants with a shirt), as well as shorts, are suitable for a travel wardrobe. These clothes will be comfortable not only while travelling but also at a picnic, in a country house. Linen does not restrict movement, easily stretches and follows the lines of the body, and, which is especially important and invaluable, breathes. These clothes will be comfortable and stylish.

Bucket Hat or Bandana

Many travellers do not attribute enough importance to this accessory, believing that the sun’s rays are not dangerous while being outdoors. However, neglecting this fact is fraught with serious consequences for careless tourists like burns, heat or sunstroke.

It is best to choose a Bucket Hat with fields. This is a classic version of a summer headdress. This accessory will protect your head and face from direct sunlight. Bucket Hat will look most optimal in khaki or dark blue solution. The headpiece complements the traveller’s image well and is irreplaceable on the road.

A good alternative to the bucket hat is a tied bandana, which also protects the head from the sun. The main thing is to choose the most cheerful colour of the accessory. By the way, a bucket hat can be replaced with a stylish neckerchief or headscarf, especially for women’s accessories.

Pants with lots of pockets

Safari-style denim pants with large, deep pockets are just the perfect piece of clothing for travellers. Firstly, you will have where to put your documents, keys, headphones, gadgets and other accessories necessary for the trip. Secondly, the fabric from which these trousers are usually sewn effectively protects the legs from damage, wind and cold. Therefore, if you are hesitant about which pair of trousers to choose for a trip, then opt for the indispensable safari trousers on a hike.

Trekking shoes

Sneakers with a stable bottom and good ventilation are suitable not only for mountain hikes but also for long-distance walks, city and country trips: for travels of any nature that involve long walks.

There are several criteria to consider when purchasing the right trekking shoes, including the weight of your body and the luggage that you intend to carry with you. Bear in mind that extra weight puts additional stress on the ankle, so be especially careful when choosing trekking shoes, do not be lazy to consult with specialists. If you weigh more than 100kg, consider a stiffer trekking boot, as lighter models not only will not provide sufficient ankle support but will also wear out faster. Lightweight models are suitable for those who have good physical fitness and sufficient hiking experience. Such people have well-developed muscles on the legs and are trained so that they do not need especially rigid additional fixation.
