Travel Light Yet In Style!

Its summer time and you all know what we love doing the most during the summer, getting out of this heat and travel to places where the weather is much cooler then UAE or the temperature is 20-24 degrees.

While we all love traveling we also end up over packing most of the time. At least I know that I always end up carrying few extra clothes so be on safe side and then not end up wearing them. It’s a real struggle!
Most of the times its women who end up over packing as we want to always match our clothes to our handbags and shoes and etc.

I collaborated with Varsha Lakhwani, a travel and lifestyle who has traveled 14 countries so far and has her style statement always up to mark. We created 4 looks with 2 outfits for different occasions.

We are no style guru but we are giving you some tips on how you can wear and create atleast two looks from one outfit for different occasions while traveling with just tiny mini changes. Whether you are out for a city tour and need to pop into a lavish dinner without having time to rush back to the hotel or heading to a concert after a day at the beach, we show you how.

Look One : On A City Tour Look!

                            Top : Namshi, Jeans : Newlook Middleast, Bag : Bali, Shoes : Adidas



My Look : I like to keep it super casual and light for the day look and since old shoulders are in trend and suits me well, I paired them with blue jeans, white sneakers and sling jute bag.

Varsha’s look – A white slogan tshirt with dark blue jeans she paired it up with sneakers and a bagpack.

Tip : Since it’s a day look which requires a lot of walking around we wore sneakers, also because you can pair them with anything and everything. Depending on your body type and choice you can go for a nice cross-body sling bag or a bagpack.

Look two : Exploring The Night Life!

                                Top : Asos, Jeans : Newlook Middleast, Shoes : Adidas

If you don’t have time to rush back to the hotel but do want to change and look different for photos then we have got some ideas for you. Carry another top and basic accessory in your bag when you leave the hotel in the morning. Just look for a public toilet and change and freshen up before you head out on your journey of exploring the night life.

My Look : I just changed my white cold shoulder top to a black velvet laced selves top and paired them with different earrings and Voila!

Varsha’s look – She wore her same blue jeans with a denim crop top to give a denim on denim look and ditched the sneakers for heels. She is more like wine and dine ready.

Tip : Do you see how we changed our entire look with just some accessories, applied a darker lipstick and changed the top. This way you end up carrying 1 less outfit for the evening.
Always Include a neutral-toned pair of ankle-strap sandals/sneakers that go with each outfit, so you don’t have to overload on the shoe front.

Look One : T-Shirt Dress For Life!

                                              Tshirt Dress : Namshi, Bag : Aldo, Shoes : Adidas

My Look : Keeping it Simple again as its during the day, sipping my worries away in a black t-shirt dress and white sneakers. Wearing loop earrings as my outfit is quiet plain. This time I paired it up with an oversized maroon handbag.

Varsha’s Look : While I went for a simple black colour to be safe, Varsha added in a pop of colour and went for a bright pink T Shirt dress and paired it with sneakers and stud earrings.

Tip : T-shirt dresses are a must for summer, you can even wear them tucked in with jeans or high waist skirts.

Look Two: Concert/Party Look!

                                                Tshirt Dress : Namshi, Over-Sized Denim Jacket : H&M


My Look : I Love over sized denim jackets, I have about 5 of them and love styling them with jeans, skirts and dresses. Since my T-shirt dress was plain black, I paired it with my oversized denim jacked, loops, pulled my hair up in a half bun and now I am ready to party in a club or even at a concert.

Varsha’s Look: Same T-shirt dress paired up with a sling bag, darker lip shade, heels and some accessories. She is ready to rock a date night or a fancy ladies night.

Tip : There is no harm in recycling your outfit, just make sure you do it in style.
