The Best Travel Clothes for All Your Summer Travels!
With summer approaching, I thought I’d talk about travel clothes since many of us will be taking trips!
What are travel clothes specifically?
Clothes designed specifically for traveling, and there’s a good reason why.
Travel clothes are designed for comfort and convenience- they’re lightweight, dry quickly, and often wrinkle less which make them perfect for all of your travel needs.
Travel clothes are practical for adventure/activity travels and everything else you do outdoors! This includes beach travel, hiking, sporting trips, even just walking expeditions around a city.
There are many stylish options available, in all colors, patterns and styles, so you can find something that suits you and looks great.
Many of us who have tried specialized clothes for travel have become huge fans and use them even after coming back home from our travels.
Benefits Of Travel Clothes
Travel clothes are designed specifically with the travelers’ needs in mind and therefore offers many benefits. The most common benefits are comfort and convenience- every traveler knows that these are important factors and are often the most sought after qualities in clothing in general.
Travel apparel is designed to be comfortable, both in design and in the choice of fabric. The design tends to be loose-fitting, without being baggy or unshapely. The fabric choice tends to be soft and light, yet also durable to hold up to your needs.
Travel clothing is also designed to be easily layered, to make easy to adjust for the weather. You can remove or add layers as needed, which make you as comfortable no matter what the weather.
Staying warm or cool is one thing, but it is also important to stay dry when travelling. Packing an umbrella is always a good idea, but sometimes you may also need a rain poncho or even proper rain jacket or slicker.
Footwear is also important and essential part of any journey. How many pairs of shoes you pack and what kind depends very much on the purpose of your trip. Shoes that are good for long periods of walking, and also possibly hiking are good to bring along, and it’s always suggested to bring an extra pair of comfy shoes along just in case you need to make a quick change. For women who wear heels, bringing a pair of flats along in your purse is a great suggestion.
Travel apparel tends to be made of lightweight material, which is of course ideal, as airlines have become increasingly stricter on luggage weight. For example, a pair of jeans can be 3 times heavier than pair of lightweight travel trousers.
You can usually wear travel clothing for longer in between washes, as the material is often breathable, resists odors, wicks moisture, etc. This means you can take fewer clothes with you on your travels, saving you room in your luggage.
When you do wash your travel clothes, they will often dry much quicker than ordinary clothes. Travel clothing also tends to wrinkle lessin the first place, but it is also quicker to get “unwrinkled” after you have unpacked your bag. This is great when staying in places which may not have irons or steamers handy. Often times you can just hang travel clothing up in the bathroom while you shower and the wrinkles will easily be released.
Travel wear can be versatile and offer multipurpose uses, again great news if you are travelling light. Products like long trousers that you can change into shorts by unzipping the legs off offer multi-way convenience. Other examples include jackets with removable sleeves which can be handy on warm days. For women there are many items which transform from cardigans to scarves even to dresses !
There are also jackets that pack up into a little attached bag or pocket, so you can use it as travel pillow when resting. The same applies to shirts and trousers, minimizing the space they will take up in your bag.
Travel clothing is made with travel in mind so they are designed with endurance in mind… they are made to last and can be worn for vacations for years to come.
Clothes For Your Sunny Vacation
Enjoying spending time outdoors is a key part of most vacations. However, it is important to protect your skin from over-exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays and sunburns. Wearing sun protection clothing is the best way to protect your skin from the sun, but you should also always apply sunscreen generously to all exposed skin.
Good sun protection hats protects your face and head, and play an important role in your overall sun protection. A sun protective hat should be combined with your sun protection clothing and sunscreen.
Beach vacations are always popular choice. The best beachwear is practical, wrinkle free, quick-drying and can withstand the elements like sun, sand and sea.
Clever storage options for your personal belongings when at the beach are also beneficial. Many retailers sell water-proof bags, mesh bags which allow sand to fall out after your beach trip before getting in the car, and clever storage containers for valuable items disguised as things like sunblock bottles , soda cans, etc.
You will need well-fitted swimwear for your beach vacation to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. For both sexes, knowing which swimwear features complements your body shape (and which to avoid), will make all the difference when choosing the right swimwear. Some styles may not suit your body shape, while other will complement it.
For the perfect tan, you might want to check out tan through swimwear and clothes . These are great option for those that want to maximize their tan. It is all about the fabric- it has tiny pores that allow the sunlight to get through the fabric, therefore allowing you to tan. This means you get suntan just as you do when wearing low or medium level sunscreen. Wearing sunscreen is still recommended when wearing these items to avoid sunburn.
Golf Travel Clothes
Golf vacations are getting increasingly popular. Most golf courses have golf dress codes. It can vary between golf clubs, and certainly between countries. Always check the dress code in advance if you are playing on an unfamiliar golf course during your trip. A Smart and conservative look, usually featuring a classic golf polo, is always the safest bet when playing on a new golf course.
There is no reason to let few raindrops spoil your game of golf. It is however important that your raingear does not restrict your movements, hence the popularity of special golf rain gear. Check our buying guide to golf rain gear.
