A business trip. A visit home. A spontaneous weekend getaway. You never know when you’ll find yourself hitting the road to heading to the airport. However, if you follow some simple rules, your men’s travel style will always look incredible. Make sure to:
Be Comfortable, Yet Classy
We all know traveling can be tiring and uncomfortable. But just because you’re in line at TSA or crammed into the backseat of your buddy’s car doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish! Leave your sweats at home and find some nicer traveling clothes.
Your men’s travel style should be a perfect blend of comfy and classy. Find wardrobe staples like white shirts in breathable fabrics and jeans with a relaxed fit. This will keep you looking polished and put together -- even after a few hours spent on the road.
Have the Essentials Handy
Men’s travel style isn’t just about your clothes; it’s also about having your essentials easily accessible and portable. Pack all your important items in a bag you keep close by. This way, you’ll always have what you need to look great (even if the airline loses your luggage).
The essentials vary from man to man, but we believe that you always need a white t-shirt, a pair of dark jeans or slacks, clean underwear and socks, your toiletries (toothbrush, hairbrush, etc.), and one standout accessory (like a men’s wooden wrist watch).
Prepare For All Kinds Of Weather
The app on your phone may say to expect sunny skies, but the weather can change in the blink of an eye! This is why you should always include something to accommodate inclement weather as part of your essential men’s travel style.
Bring along a jacket that can withstand cold and wind chills (if it’s waterproof, even better). Or, if you’re headed somewhere warmer than you’re used to, consider packing a pair of shorts, flip flops, and sunglasses. By thinking ahead, you’ll be comfortable in any climate.
Keep Your Denim Dark
Whether you’re headed out of town for a rowdy weekend with the guys or you’re meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time, it’s always a good idea to be ready for a dressier occasion. How do you do that if you’re packing light? Opt for dark-colored denim.
Deep indigo, navy, or black jeans toe the line between casual and formal. You can wear them with anything for almost any occasion -- a button down and blazer is perfect for a fancy dinner out, while a t-shirt and jacket dresses them down for everyday wear.
Dark denim jeans are a particularly versatile style of pants, which makes them an absolute must-have for men’s travel style. Make sure to toss on a pair before you head out the door (or pack them next to your men’s wooden wrist watch) and you won’t go wrong!
