Travel Attire: What to Pack Based On the Time of Year&Your Destination

The words “outfit” and “travel” go hand in hand…
you really can’t have one without the other, in all honesty. I mean think about
it. You wouldn’t travel to Colorado in December for a Christmas vacation
wearing shorts and open-toe sandals, would you? Of course not. That’s why it’s
so important to pack accordingly when you have made travel plans.

A good word of advice is to always check the
weather of where you’re traveling to. Just because it’s 80 degrees in Tennessee
where you live doesn’t mean that it will be the same temperature in Los
Angeles. You have to take all types of things into consideration, like will you
be near the ocean? Is your destination in the desert? And What type of
activities will you be doing on your trip?

Locations near the beach tend to be a lot cooler
than places away from the beach so you might need to carry a light jacket with
you even though it may be July… you just never know. Because “the unknown”
remains a constant with travel and weather conditions, we have a few tips on travel
attire for comfort
and what you need to pack based on the location
you’re traveling to.
