Once you get past the hotel room and luxury accommodations, one of the best ways of staying comfortable on vacation is how you dress. It’s not a revolutionary idea, but it’s something small that can certainly go a long way.
Precisely because the clothing you pack and wear can so profoundly shape your vacation, it’s important to know which clothes to bring with you. For example, while flip-flops and sandals might seem like a good idea for a trip to tropical Ecuador, you might start shivering and your feet might start aching as you hike through the snow-capped peaks of the Andes Mountains. If this happens to you, then unless you buy an entirely new wardrobe, you’ll be stuck in clothes that make you feel uncomfortable for a week.
Instead of suffering, you can dodge this dilemma entirely by planning ahead. As you pack for your vacation, check the weather for the area you’ll be traveling to so that you can pack appropriately. You’ll also want to look at the itinerary of your trip to see if there are any activities or events that will require certain clothes, like boots for a nature walk.
Another important point to take note of as you pack is whether or not you need to adhere to a dress code; it would be unfortunate if you couldn’t fully participate in your itinerary just because you didn’t bring a jacket and tie. Make sure you bring enough clothing with you to comply with any dress codes.
Conveniently, most travel sites will include all of this information, along with a suggested list of clothing to bring with you. If they don’t, you can contact your travel agent or the destination directly and ask. Either way, look into the weather, the itinerary, and the dress code so that you can dress for a great vacation on your next getaway!
