Traveling is a very Catch-22 kind of business. While you want to be comfortable when you’re on the road (or in the sky), you also want to appear stylish and on trend. Don’t even get us started on the travel photos that you need to take, where you always need to look your best.
Although you can get outfit travel guides pretty much anywhere, there aren’t a lot of recommendations about stylish travel essentials that you can find. That’s why, in order to help you appear comfortable as well as trendy, we decided to make a short list of things you should have so that you can always travel in style. Although fashion trends may change, the essentials will always remain the same.
10 Hidden Pocket Scarf
It should go without saying that you should probably dress comfortably and warmly whenever you’re traveling. You should take note of this if you’re going on an airplane. However, there’s no need to take a regular old scarf with you to keep you warm anymore, thanks to this great invention. With a scarf that has a hidden pocket, you’ll be able to stay warm during a flight, but you'll also be able to hold your wallet, keys, passport, and your phone inside of it.
9 Reusable Water Bottle
If you travel often, you should be aware that you’re contributing to the negative effects that any vehicle has on the environment. You’re probably already aware that you’re also spending a small fortune every time you get thirsty while you’re on the road. That’s why getting a reusable water bottle is ideal for any frequent traveler. Not only will you save a lot more money in the long run, which you can use to buy some trinkets from your next destination, but you’re also able to drink cold water at any time.
8 Travel Wallet
If you’re traveling, of course, you’re going to need a travel wallet. You will need one that’s big enough to fit the boarding passes, your cards, some cash, and your passport, right? But instead of getting a regular old travel wallet, why not get a stylish one? After all, that’s what we mean when we talk about traveling in style. You can even get one in a bold color so that you’ll have an easier time finding it in your bag.
7 Monogrammed Passport And Luggage Set
This is the ultimate must-have item for any stylish traveler. After all, you can’t really show off your travel gear without getting a luggage tag and a passport case that have your initials right on it. Make all of your Instagram pictures pop with a unique set, like this one, that ’s going to show off your originality as well as your style. As a bonus, putting a luggage tag that’s unique on your bags means you’ll also have an easier time finding your things at the airport.
6 Cute Charging Cord Keychain
Traveling without your headphones is one of the things that land at the top of the worst things you can do while on the road. But forgetting your charger, or accidentally ruining your charger may just get an entry before the headphones on that list. That’s why you should invest in a great invention like this one. It’s both a keychain and a charging cord. As a bonus, the cord is retractable which means it’ll never get tangled up or broken, and there’s no way you’ll forget it at home because you can just attach it to your backpack!
5 Gorgeous And Functional Backpack
Being an experienced traveler also means that you already know the maximum amount of luggage that's allowed on the plane. It also means knowing the perfect way to pack your carry-on luggage, (or in this case, backpack) so that everything will fit neatly inside, and there won’t be any mess. But getting any old backpack is not ideal, especially if you want to travel in style. Instead, think about investing in a functional backpack that also has a great design, as there are already thousands of them available these days.
4 Adorable Socks
When you’re stuck on a plane for the better part of an entire day, you’re going to want to be comfortable. However, even if you manage to find and purchase the most amazing pair of shoes, nothing compares to the feeling of taking them off, right? Well, when you do finally decide to take your comfy shoes off, if you’re trying to travel in style, you’ll need some adorable pairs of socks. Whether you decide to go for a minimalistic pair, or something patterned, it’s up to you. As long as they look adorable and keep your feet warm.
3 Sleek Set Of Suitcases
There are thousands of suitcases that are advertised to frequent travelers, especially if those who travel very often. But if that’s the case, then you’re already familiar with the struggle of having your luggage ruined during a flight, perhaps due to careless handling. If you want to avoid all of that kind of trouble from the beginning, then you should invest in a set of hard suitcases. Hard suitcases are hard to destroy, and you should get a set so that you’ll have enough room regardless of where you're heading.
2 Cute Compact Umbrella
Usually, when someone says the word umbrella, the first thing that pops into everyone’s mind is terrible weather and heavy equipment. But it doesn’t have to be this way. There are compact mini umbrellas these days that perform the same function as the big ones do. They protect you from the rain, but you'll save a lot of space in your bag thanks to their size. If you get a small umbrella, you’re able to save up a lot more room in your bags and you’ll be following all the current trends. It’s a win-win all around!
1 Comfy But Stylish Pillow
As we said before, whenever you travel, especially for a long period of time, you should make sure that the journey is as comfortable as possible. If you want to avoid getting off the plane with a sore and stiff neck, you should definitely get yourself a travel pillow, and if you want to be a stylish traveler, you can’t just get any old travel pillow. With a pillow that’s both comfortable and stylish, you won’t even notice the overhead lights of the passenger in the seat next to you. Happy snoozing!
