How to Pick the Perfect Travel Wardrobe

Women's travel clothing comes in so many styles - how do you choose? It depends on where you're going, for how long, and what kind of traveler you are. In other words, travel style and needs will dictate what you buy.

Deciding which items to take is the easy part - all you have to do is consult this travel packing list.  

But what exactly should you look for when buying travel clothes?

Choose clothes that make you comfortable

It depends on the item - each one has unique qualities and while this site doesn't compare brands, there are certain things you should look for, no matter what the brand:

While each item has its own specifications, but there are general characteristicsyou should look for as a rule for pretty much every item of women's travel clothing you buy. These include:

  • Weight: you don't want a heavy backpack if you're planning a lot of walking
  • Drying speed - the faster the better
  • Wrinkling - as little as possible
  • Compatibility - items you can mix and match and layer
  • Sturdiness - you'll be washing them often
  • Versatility and flexibility
  • Colorfast - you don't want your clothes to run when you wash them
  • Sprayable fabric - beware as some synthetics can't be sprayed with mosquito repellent
  • Pockets with secure fastenings
  • Comfort - you may be wearing it for a long time
  • Temperature control, not too hot and not too cold
  • Resistance to stains and dirt
  • Water repellent properties
  • Comfort, comfort, comfort
  • Cultural appropriateness - in some countries pants are a no-no for women
  • And lets not forget great looks!

Your best bet is to go for quality, even if it is a little more expensive. There's nothing like good seams, strong stitching and fine finishing when it comes to making clothes last and look good, no matter how long you're on the road.
