A good travel wardrobe for women is one that has all the items of clothing a woman might need in her trips around the world. The key word here is need, not want. You may want to bring along your leopard-print five-inch platform shoes or your neon green leggings, but do you need them? It may make you look trendy when you are travelling around, but the real purpose of travelling is not to impress people with how good you look, but to learn as much as you can for business trips, and to relax and enjoy yourself for holidays and vacations. And there’s no way you can look your best if you’re constantly worrying over how you look or looking for misplaced luggage and scattered belongings.
The secret to packing light and packing well when you travel the world is to stick to the basics. Classic clothing is always in style, wherever you go. Trends come and go, but clean and simple clothes such as neutral-coloured shirts, blazers, dark-washed jeans and khakis will always fit in anywhere.
Nothing can complement a tan or flawless white skin more than a simple white shirt. The styling possibilities of white shirts are endless. You can slip on a formal double-breasted blazer over it, a denim jacket, or pile on long necklaces and accessories to make your look unique and individual.
Jeans that are straight or boot cut (slightly wider around the ankles) and in dark colours are the ultimate in style. Bring more shirts than jeans, because you can wear up to three shirts for every pair of bottoms.
Khaki pants are great for more formal occasions, and like jeans, they also go great with white shirts. Some women are tempted to go all dark to look slimmer, but if your jacket or cardigan is already dark-coloured, you will look better wearing khakis instead.
