Style Guide: Travel Essentials for Escaping the Winter Weather
It’s the season for getaways! As the Winter continues, and March Break approaches, many people are getting ready to fly south for a week-long sunny vacay. Looking forward to catching some rays, but dreading the packing? We’ve got you covered.
Packing the right pieces and making sure not to forget anything can be tricky. Keeping a list of what you need and have already packed, as well as planning out your outfits for each event / day is the best way to stay organized while traveling. There are some key pieces to remember to pack - check them out below!
1. Airport outfit
Don’t wait until the morning of the trip to decide what you’ll wear for your flight, and no need to waste space in your suitcase by packing two different plane outfits. Our matching jogger and hoodie set is the ideal airport outfit for both flights. A lightweight bamboo zip-up hoodie paired with bamboo jogger pants is the coziest option for your travel day! Check out our Kora Jogger and Silvia Zip-Up Hoodie to achieve this cozy look!
2. A basic short sleeve that pairs well with everything!
Make sure to pack the basics - a neutral colour short sleeve tee goes a long way! Grab a white or black short sleeve tee to pair and layer with your other pieces. Our Lia Seamless Short Sleeve tee was made for traveling - made of seamless bamboo fabric that is naturally breathable and thermoregulating, it will wick away any sweat from the heat! Consider wearing it on the plane by layering under your matching jogger set to save more space in your bags - though it is lightweight enough to pack away without hassle.
3. A cozy sweater for chilly evenings and brisk mornings
Although you may be heading to a warm destination, think ahead by packing for any sudden weather changes. Grab a cozy sweater for evening or brisk morning strolls around the resort - mornings can be chilly before the sun is up, especially if it rained the night before, cooling everything down. We’d recommend a casual sweater that can be dressed up or down - our Arden Half-Zip sweater has drawstrings for an adjustable cinchable waist line, creating the perfect silhouette. Paired perfectly with leggings or capris, this is a great option for any potential weather changes!
4. Your go-to everyday leggings
No explanation needed - your go-to leggings are a must when packing for a vacation! The perfect piece that pairs with everything you bring, need we say more? If you’re still on the hunt for your perfect legging, we suggest trying a bamboo fabric - sweat-wicking, breathable, and super soft. A perfect travel pair is our Suri Leggings - featuring a thin waist band and bamboo jersey fabrication.
5. The perfect throw over beach dress
Of course, every sunny destination requires at least one easy styling maxi dress, like our Denise Maxi Dress! A long, flowy, breathable maxi dress perfect for covering up at the beach or styling for a day touring the city. Easily styled with your favourite sandals and sun hat - or try adding a unique touch by tying a knot in the bottom seam for a swept-to-the-side cropped look!
6. Comfy shorts
Along with a comfy dress, comfy shorts are the next best thing. Jean shorts are fun to style, but can cause great uncomfort throughout the day - especially if you’re wearing them all day long! Opt for a fabric short, such as a bamboo french terry, for a breathable, more comfortable fit. Our Wendy Shorts wick away sweat, are thermoregulating (perfect for extreme weather!) and easily styled with your favourite basic tees and sandals for a casual look.
7. Dress it up or down t-shirt
Speaking of favourite basic tees, our Laura Relaxed-Fit Blouse is a fantastic casual tee that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Add a statement necklace, capris, and cute heeled sandals for a night out for dinner, or dress down by pairing it with your favourite biker shorts (like our Essential Shorts!) and some runners for a walk around the pier. Packing for vacation is all about the versatility of each piece you bring - having a more unique styled tee shirt to dress up or down is a must!
8. Versatile piece
If we’re talking about versatility, we can’t forget our absolute favourite piece to bring on vacations - jumpsuits! We can’t get enough of these styles - from long sleeves to short sleeves, to cardigans, or on their own, jumpsuits have so much styling potential! Our Brooke Jumpsuit pairs perfectly with our Lia Seamless Short Sleeve tee under, or if it’s a chillier evening, try our long sleeve version, Aurora Seamless Long Sleeve! Pair it with your favourite cardigan, cute sneakers or sandals - the possibilities are endless!
9. A basic long sleeve for layering
As mentioned, the sister to our Lia Seamless Short Sleeve tee is our Aurora Seamless Long Sleeve tee. It never hurts to pack an extra layer or two for those chilly evenings, and with the lightweight fabric of this top, no need to fear taking up too much space in your bags! Pair it under your jumpsuit, with some capris, under a cute spaghetti strap dress, or under your zip-up hoodie for the plane ride, having another basic shirt option is a forward thinking method for planning your outfits for travel!
10. Breathable sleepwear
Finally, you can’t forget about comfortable sleepwear! Warm nights are no fun when you’re trying to get some beauty rest. Consider bamboo sleepwear for a breathable, thermoregulating and uber soft sleep. Our Fable Lounge Set is a comfortable elastic waist short with a matching loose fitted t-shirt. A sleep set made for the warm sleepers! Its breathability due to its style and bamboo fabrication is a must-have while traveling to warmer climates.
Don’t forget the essentials!
What about the essentials! You don’t want to end up in another country without any essentials - make sure to pack your favourite underwear and bras/bralettes. Bamboo fabric is a lifesaver in this domain - it’s naturally antibacterial, breathable, and sweat-wicking - the perfect fabrication for undergarments! We also suggest leaving the wired bra behind - our Essential Bralettes offer the support you need, without the discomfort. With its made-to-match underwear pairing, packing and planning out your outfits for the week just got a whole lot easier! As an honourable mention, we wanted to also suggest bringing a built-in bra seamless tank - our Seamless Bra Tanks are made to be worn on its own or as a layering piece! No need to plan out which bra to wear with it, or worry about your bra straps showing and ruining the outfit, the bra is sewn-in!
