When it comes to travelling, every girl is familiar with the struggle of not being able to bring their whole wardrobe. Every little piece of clothing seems to be a must-have for a true fashionista, and the fact that you won’t be wearing even half of the stuff you brought still doesn’t stop you from over-packing the suitcase. So think in advance and choose which essentials you might want to pack for your next getaway.
Here’s a list of our fashionista’s ultimate must haves for travel.
1. Friendly face masks
Whether you are a frequent flyer or not, traveling can be really exhausting for your whole body. Plus, your face suffers a lot due to the dry air in the cabin and the fact that you might have a sleepless night or two. In-flight face masks are increasing in popularity, and they can help you feel fresh and rejuvenated after arriving at your dream destination. Think no further, and get yourself one. Forget about the judgmental looks from the strangers on the plane and pamper yourself because you deserve it. One is definitely a must have for travel!

2. Dress to impress your enemies
A woman shouldn’t forget to pack a dress for her trip. It is just a must have for travel! Whether you want to flaunt your legs or to conceal your imperfections, midi and maxi dresses can work in your favor. Maxi dresses are always a good idea, especially because you’ll be dressed head to toe, plus, they are comfortable and feminine. For the extra chicness, add a leather jacket to the whole look and pick a dressy or a casual pair of shoes—either works.

Even cute and pre-planned outfits look awful if you let them wrinkle up, and there’s no way your clothes will remain fresh after the flight. Therefore, getting a mini hand steamer can save your life. Looking sloppy on your Instagram posts is a huge no-no, so you better get yourself one and use it to smooth down your garments. You can also pick mini smart irons, which are a great solution to ensure your clothes are wrinkle-free.
3. Stylish mermaid
No matter what location you are heading to, you must have a bathing suit with you, just in case you run into a spa centre, ‘accidentally’. Without fail, women will always find a super Instagrammable place or a spa centre where they can flaunt their one piece swimsuits and pose for the best shot. For girls with a pale complexion a red one piece is a bingo, and yellow flatters dark skin the most. But hey, there are no rules. Everyone should wear their preferred color and style, and have the time of their life.
Jewels are a girl’s best travel buddies, so make sure you bring a lot of them. If your outfits are pretty simple and classic, then adding statement accessories can totally make them pop. If you prefer something subtle, then layering golden chokers and necklaces would be awesome. Also, a nice watch is a great addition, and it goes perfectly with both casual and dressy fashion combinations.
5. Hair care and skin care products
A frequent change of a shampoo or a conditioner can cause a number of issues. That includes hair loss, dandruff, itchiness and redness. There are so many overly-aggressive ingredients that different shampoos contain, so it’s necessary to choose the best one for your scalp.
If you opt for an anti-dandruff shampoo that is all natural and quite soothing and nourishing, you won’t have to worry about drying out your hair. To see the results, you will have to use it at least 3 times a week, which shouldn’t be a problem. As for the skin care, it won’t hurt to test other products from time to time, even if you’re loyal to a certain brand. The key is to follow a regimen with any product regularly, in order to see most consistent results.
6. Versatile shoes
One thing is certain, you should always travel in your sneakers…or rather, you must have sneakers for your travel!Aside from that, two pairs of shoes should go into your suitcase, so try to choose ones that are comfy, and ones that can be fancier, as you will probably go to dinner or a nightclub. When it comes to colors, neutrals work the best, but you should also give a chance to red ankle straps which go perfectly with any outfit you pick.
Always bring at least two pairs of sunnies with you. You can’t predict the weather, but they look really great as a daytime accessory. Plus, they are lifesavers for those lazy days when you just want to sit and relax at the beach without having to wear makeup.
Now, which of these must haves for travel is about to fill up your suitcase? If you can’t decide, then simply take them all.
