How To Stay Stylish While Travelling Around Australia

Selina Dress from Alamour the Label

Travelling is usually not the most stylish of affairs with all the rushing around from taxis to airports, the unpacking and repacking of suitcases and the early morning and late night travelling times. Not only this, but living out of a suitcase can be difficult because you don’t have the luxury of choosing from your entire wardrobe, meaning style can be hard to come by if you don’t pack right.

1. Know Australian Climate When You Come

Depending on where you go, the weather will vary hugely within Australia. If you’re heading to the north then bring along your summer wardrobe because temperatures rarely drop below 20 degrees, even in winter. On the other hand, if you’re visiting Melbourne or Hobart then be prepared to pack a coat or two as these cities can reach very cold temperatures in winter.

Being prepared means you’ll be best equipped with your clothing essentials needed to combat the climate. If you plan on hiking and doing exercise activities, then pack in cute gym clothes so you can look stylish even when your working out.

2. Comfort Is Key

Stylish doesn’t always need to equal discomfort, plus you will never fully appreciate your outfit if you feel uncomfortable. Summer calls for rompers, skirts and dresses which are all loose enough to provide you the ultimate comfort while looking stylish. Not only this, dresses and rompers are a one stop dress meaning effort won’t be required to help you look good.

During Melbourne winters you’ll want to ensure that coats and jumpers are on your packing list. Neutral colours will be your best friends so that they will complement the jeans, dresses and other bottoms you pack.

3. Bring At Least One Fancy Clothing Item

You never know what will happen when you’re on holiday, and sometimes you make an in the moment decision to visit that one fancy restaurant and go see that one special event while you’re there. You don’t want to underdress to a classy event so packing a semi-formal dress like Selina Dress from Alamour the Label will save you from any potential wardrobe fails.

4. Build From Your Foundational Items

When packing for any country, make sure that most of your suitcase is filled with the essential items that you can build from to create multiple different looks. It’s more important to bring basics that can pair with everything, rather than multiple pieces that can only be matched with one or two other clothing items.

Also don’t be afraid to repeat your outfits, you are on holiday after all so everyone will understand if your options are limited. Plus, everyone you meet will only be once so people won’t know if you wore the same outfit the day before.
