Check out this Travel Essentials Style-Mix to create fresh new travel outfits!
Leggings are a great multi-purpose item! You can use them for added warmth, pants, or pijamas. A basic set of black leggings is wearable with anything. Choose a thin microfiber type fabric and even the cheapest leggings will practically come out dry from the washing machine. Ideal!
If you only pack one dress, make it a little black travel dress. Top with a tank or cover up with a button down top. Style it up for a night out or make it casual for day. Every girl needs to pack at least one dress as part of their backpacking clothing.
Whether you choose a flirty mini like this one or a more flowy and relaxed style, a plain black skirt is a good alternative if you want to pack light and still have the option to wear a dress once in a while. Choose a basic black one and pair it with a black top to make a Little Black Travel Dress!
Shorts are also another travel essential if you’re traveling to warmer climates. Whether you choose to only carry the shorts from your convertible pants, capri length, or shorter shorts; they’re very versatile can go days without a washing. If you choose the shorter length like shown above, add some leggings in more conservative areas. Many girls hate convertible pants for women and would much rather travel with jeans. However, you should include a relaxed and comfortable set of pants that can double up as trekking pants in your travel wardrobe. Certain style of cargo pants can be stylish and cute. The best thing is the fabric – can go forever without washing or looking dirty!
