Basic Wardrobe Essentials for Travelling

14th of December

Travelling is one of the most rewarding activities a person can do. You get to explore new places, experience new cultures, and gain new perspectives. While travelling is awesome as it is, it needs a lot of preparation to ensure a smooth, worry-free travel.

One thing you need to prepare is your travel wardrobe. Packing versatile clothing is the key to a lightweight trip, unless you want to over pack and carry that weight a long time.

So, for starters, here’s a list of basic wardrobe essentials you must check before travelling:


T-shirts are a must for any kind of travel.

Depending on your destination, pack a pair or four types of shirts. They may be loose, short, long, or sleeve-less – your choice. One of the best thing about tee-shirts is that they’re available anywhere and most importantly, they’re comfortable.

Cardigans or a Jacket

Cardigans are fashionable for both men and women. They can be used during the cold, as cover up (if you don’t want your shoulders exposed), or an emergency umbrella during a sunny trike.

Moreover, cardigans are lightweight so they’re easy to carry around. However, if you want more warmth in your travel, you can always bring your favorite jacket.

Tank Tops

Tank tops are one of the most versatile and traveler-friendly clothing piece, just look at any travelers out there! You don’t have to worry about pairing them rightly, because they’re fashionable. In fact, they could be paired with almost any ensemble, daytime or nighttime. The possibilities are endless!


A big scarf can be used as a blanket during long bus trips or in an outdoor overnight. It can also be used as a cover up, or as a pop of color in your outfit. Plus, scarves make you look like an instant fashionista—no effort required!

Basic Bottoms

When it comes to bottoms, we have our individual preferences. But as a rule, only bring in the shorts that fit you just right and – this is very important – are appropriate to where you’re headed.


Aside from your walking shoes, choose a pair of nice sandals. What’s good about sandals is that it’s best during casual walks, beaches, and also as a home footwear. They’re not slippery on wet surfaces unlike flip-flops, which can cause accidents. Best of all, they could be paired with any outfit. Just choose the best sandals for you and you’re good to go.

Sleeping Clothes

These are comfortable, loose, and lightweight clothes. Remember to choose sleeping clothes that will keep you comfortable and snuggly warm.

You want to be comfortable all the time and simply enjoy your trip so bring pieces that will allow you to do just that! Also, take note if your clothes are wrinkle-free, lightweight (have I not emphasized this enough), and most importantly, easy to wash. But that’s for another topic altogether!
