Whether you’re an avid traveler or new to the nomad lifestyle, fashion should never get in the way of your adventure. From cross-country business trips to international sights, being on the go can sometimes make it challenging to strike the perfect balance between comfort and style.
When it comes to packing light and having enough outfits to lean into your wanderlust, Kiya Tomlin has the travel fashion tips for women on the move. We've compiled a list of do’s to keep you looking chic and feeling comfortable on your journeys.
Create Wardrobe Versatility
When packing for a trip, choose clothing that can easily be mixed and matched to create multiple looks and save space in your luggage. Intentionally creating versatile outfits in your travel wardrobe will provide you with less to carry while you go from here to there.
Solid-colored tops and comfortable pants or leggings are ideal choices to mix and match your way to endless outfit options.
To create a versatile outfit, try Kiya Tomlin’s Twisted Crop Top paired with the Pleated Maxi Pant for a day of sightseeing. Bring a leather or jean jacket with you for your night out to create a whole new look while saving valuable time going back to the hotel.
Want to shake it up a bit? Pair the same top with jeans and the pants with a t-shirt for multiple looks throughout your trip.
Travelers notoriously encounter all types of weather conditions when in new surroundings, but preparing your travel fashion by packing clothing that can be easily layered puts you ahead of the clouds.
Kiya recommends bringing a jacket on the plane. The added layer will allow you to adapt your look from day to night effortlessly and help keep you comfortable with any chilly airplane air. As a bonus, wearing your jacket in flight opens up more room in your luggage for additional layers.
Choose Wrinkle-Resistant Fabrics
You just got off the plane and have a big morning meeting? The last thing you want to do after a long day of travel is iron. To avoid pulling out an ironing board, pack wrinkle-resistant fabrics such as polyester, rayon and spandex, which generally do not require ironing.
Kiya Tomlin uses a unique bamboo-blend fabric that tends to wrinkle less than traditional fabrics, making her line of clothing extremely easy to pack for travel.
Single Piece Outfits
Fitting all your fashion wants into a suitcase can be daunting, so opting for single piece outfits like dresses and rompers are literal space savers. Try Kiya Tomlin’s Power Romper, which is the perfect one piece option to make a statement with any major meetings or conferences you have planned during your travels.
Single piece outfits require less time to perfect, giving you extra time to enjoy your trip.
Travel fashion can often seem overwhelming. But with Kiya Tomlin’s tips for women on the move, you’ll be able to minimize valuable luggage space while maximizing your style.
