If you travel often, you surely know the pain of lugging around a massive suitcase. Not to mention, you may have to pay a hefty surcharge when flying with extra baggage. Did you know that the average checked luggage fee is around $30?
But traveling light means you may have fewer options to style your looks. That's a problem for men who already have less to dress with. Well, you're in luck, guys, because we have the nitty-gritty of traveling in style without carrying loads of luggage.
Here are a few cool tips to save the pain, cost, and stress of heavyweight travel. Use them the next time you pack!
First off, let's talk about packing light, guys. It's tempting to bring your entire closet if you want to look stylish during vacations. Absolutely not, because even a minimalist approach can help you go a long way.
Plus, lugging around a massive suitcase is not a good look. Embrace the mindset first, and you'll be ready to pack light and style your options like a pro.
Carry the essentials
Going with the essentials is the best option when it comes to traveling light and looking good during your tours. So what are the essentials? It boils down to the purpose of travel and your preferences.
A few basic t-shirts, a couple of comfy pairs of jeans, a versatile jacket, and a good pair of shoes are great for leisure trips. Pack a few pairs of shorts for a beach vacation. But you'll need dressier stuff for work travel.
Add something for style
While the basics have you covered, you've got to add some stuff for style. You wouldn't want to look mediocre in your travel pics, so some cool options are worth carrying. Why not pack a couple of trendy overshirts and your favorite jacket?
You can up your style quotient with funky accessories like watches, caps, sunglasses, and scarves. Don't skimp on these add-ons, no matter how short you are of space.
Opt for complementary stuff
Well, this one is a no-brainer because you can build a holiday wardrobe with a few pieces that blend well. You've got to be a little creative to play with colors, textures, and styles to achieve more with less.
Carry more neutral colors like black, white, and gray. But remember to bring something for an extra pop. Think of a few mix-and-match combos while packing and you'll be good to go.
Don't forget about grooming
Your clothes, shoes, and accessories can easily take up most of your packing space. But one thing you cannot miss out on is the grooming essentials, right? A toothbrush, deodorant, and cologne can go a long way because they help you smell good and feel fresh all the time.
And don't forget to follow the grooming rules every day, guys. So pack your trimmer, skincare, and hair care basics too.
Traveling light yet looking stylish doesn't have to be complicated. All you need to do is pack wisely and stick with the essential stuff. And yes, styling like a pro does the trick. So, go forth with these tips and conquer the world!
