Muddy hiking boots, cargo pants, dirty week-old clothes, and a back drenched in sweat from the warm backpack you’ve been carrying for the last few hours… it doesn’t really sound like the sexiest look ever, does it?
No, the reality looks a lot different.
But does this mean that we all just have to put our need to look good aside for the moment?
Or, is it possible to travel and still be sexy – do we have to choose between comfort and looks?
When I look for travel clothing online and in shops it sure seems that way, and I’m still amazed that the designers in the travel clothing industry don’t try harder.
They know that the majority of backpackers and adventurers usually are under 45 years old, so why not design something for us too?!
One dress that I find works great for travelers is the Le Sac dress by American Apparel, which can be worn in several different ways to create different styles.
I also found a (lightweight) dress from GoLite that can be worn inside out and offers a different color, so you basically have two dresses.
I’m curious to know what you do to make yourself feel sexier when traveling.
Do you avoid the cargo pants altogether, or do you make them work and actually look good?
What do you focus on, the details, the outfit, or perhaps just the attitude?
What effort do you put into making yourself look good? For me, the details make all the difference.
I think that you can definitely wear some shaggy clothes and still manage to pull it off, if you put some effort into details. Ok, maybe not the whole kit, but you can get away with quite a bit.
I make sure to always bring long dangling earrings, and a bit of make up, which can help make the outfit look more complete.
I also try to pack clothes that can work for as many occasions as possible. I want them to work for a dressed up look, as well as a casual outfit.
