Winter sun holidays are more popular than ever. The benefits are pretty endless in my opinion. It’s cold and damp at home and there’s no end to it in sight. So whether you’re a one nice holiday a year girl or you prefer a few smaller trips, having a winter break in sunnier climes is ideal. And, of course, getting away during our winter is always much more cost effective than doing it during our summer.
What to Take
I won’t digress any further, at least for now, because once I start talking about Texas I usually don’t stop!
What I really get excited about during winter, especially when I’m getting ready to go away somewhere, is accessories. Anyone who meets me instantly knows that accessories are my thing. I love shopping for bits and pieces to wear and carry, especially before I go away. I just love to try out different looks when I’m fully relaxed and away from the strain of work, home, paying bills etc.
Comfort is just as important as style, especially as most winter sun breaks involve a fair bit of travel. So to make your travels even better, here are some of my must-have holiday fashion tips.
Take a Good Handbag
The type and size of handbag you prefer are subjective, of course. But it’s good to know what type of personality you have when it comes to your own personal organisation and how much stuff you like to carry buy in tune with that
What I can definitely say is that going away somewhere is a great time to try out a new handbag. A new handbag to me is like a personal makeover – I actually feel new when I head out with one and it makes me feel so good about myself! And wherever and with whoever you are, there’s never a bad time to have a stylish handbag on your arm!
Don’t forget about the accessories
Even though you may want to pack light, it doesn’t mean that you have to leave the accessories behind. You can pack light and still make sure that you are looking your best and that you have the right accessories for your outfits. One thing you can consider is investing in an Apple Watch. Apple watches are perfect for travelling as well because you can always have your phone and messages to hand, which is good for safety when you are visiting new cities or countries. Practical reasons aside, Apple watches are the perfect travel accessory as they have interchangeable straps which make it that much easier to make sure to swap out your straps to match your outfits. I like WsC London because of the variety ranging from leather, stainless steel, woven nylon, and silicone bands.
Have some modest clothing options
Even in Western countries, you will probably find that you can’t enter certain venues if you are not appropriately dressed. So make sure you have some modest clothing items with you, to be respectful and to avoid embarrassment. If you aren’t sure what clothing would be appropriate, do some research to get you on the right track.
Always pack a large scarf
When choosing which scarf to bring, choose a colour or design that will work with multiple items in your travel wardrobe. Also, practise different scarf styling ideas so you don’t get tired of your look too quickly.
Take versatile shoes
Again, determine how well the style and colour will work with the rest of your clothing. This will guarantee that you have shoes that can be worn for a multitude of different occasions and still look good.
I hope these holiday fashion tips should make preparing and packing for your trip much easier and help you enjoy your trip far more. They’ve worked pretty well for me. Whatever you decide to take with you, make sure it’s suitable for your destination and makes you feel good about yourself. That way you can enjoy your travels to the fullest!
