If you are planning to travel over the holidays or have an upcoming trip, pack smart to stay stylish. Instead of bringing more outfits and ensembles, consider a few cool accessories that are versatile, useful, and that will create many different looks with ease. Tuck these items in your suitcase to get the most mileage from your apparel when you are away from home.
Some cool accessories that travel well include:
Natural wood sunglasses. You will need a great pair of shades when you are traveling; check out the cool, new wooden sunglasses available at some online stores and high-end retailers like Woodroze. These will go with any ensemble and are much lighter than metal styles, plus they offer a fresh, contemporary look that is perfect for any situation.
Silk sarongs. One of the most versatile pieces that you can have in your suitcase is a quality silk sarong. These make perfect cover-ups at the beach, a cute skirt for the club, and a great wrap for a cool evening.
A big hemp hat. If you plan on any sunshine at all during your trip, you will need a big hat to protect your skin. Check out some of the cool new bamboo and hemp variations sold at retailers online; these are eco-friendly, organic materials that will last.
Jewelry for your feet. Vacations are the ideal time to bring out some foot jewelry. Anytime that you go barefoot, like on the beach or lounging at a resort, wear simple wraps, anklets, and toe-rings that are made from hemp, bamboo, and natural stone. Foot jewelry is also a great way to draw attention to your pedicure!
Cross-body bags. A stylish cross-body bag is the perfect accessory when away from home. It is small enough to be tucked in your carry-on during travel and just the right size to take out shopping or sight-seeing on vacation. Look for bags with adjustable straps and resilient materials.
Versatile wraps. Bring a couple of scarfs or wraps that you can use for a variety of purposes and looks during your trip. Use as a shoulder-wrap on chilly nights, or a scarf to accent your favorite dress; wear as head-wraps on the beach to protect your hair, too.
Start thinking about accessories that can augment and accent a wide-range of looks, and that will get the most wear from the clothes that you pack. Look for these cool accessories for your next trip to stay stylish, while still traveling light.
After burning through several pairs of cheap earrings, I decided one day that it might be in my best interest to look into buying some better pieces. Instead of visiting little accessory shops, I started saving my money and frequenting high-end jewelry stores. I quickly realized that by investing more money into jewelry, the items would last significantly longer and look a lot better when I wore them. It was amazing to see how much better I looked with the better items. This blog is all about investing in better accessories so that you can take better pictures or enjoy a renewed sense of self.
