Many people think that travel and fashion cannot go hand in hand. Some say that you have to choose comfort over style whilst travelling, but why can't you do both? You can easily stay stylish whilst travelling and daub your Instagram feed with fierce photos if you follow these 5 simple tips.

Clothes - So you want to look like one of them girls in music videos whilst walking along the beach? Well, all you need is a flattering floral dress or playsuit and a cute pair of sunglasses. It may feel tempting to let the wind play with your hair but instead, why not opt for a messy bun or ponytail? You can kill two birds with one stone by looking chic and saving your hair from sun damage at the same time.
If you are packing for winter however, wear a trench coat with skinny jeans and pair with knee-length boots. If the weather is going to be warm, dig out your ankle boots or printed pumps. Pack light dresses and t-shirts that are wrinkle-free and will more importantly, dry quickly.

Accessories - Minimalism is the way to do it right my fellow travellers. If you think accessorising with tones of jewellery will help you to look more stylish whilst you travel then you are wrong. Ever heard of that saying, "Less is more." Do not carry all those fancy earrings you own. Instead, choose pieces of jewellery that can go with multiple outfits and won't weigh your backpack down. A simple pendant and a trendy watch or bracelet can do wonders. Leave those statement necklaces behind and save room for those unique pieces that you might find along the way!

Makeup Kit - Always remember the first two rules of choosing travel-friendly makeup; do not carry anything powdery or products that can be ruined after heat exposure. If you are using a vacation planner then you will know whether your destination is going to be warm or not. Instead, focus on having a classic red lipstick (that can be used as a blush as well), a brown eyebrow/eyeliner pencil, moisturiser, lip balm and a bit of concealer. These things are more than enough to make you look sassy. Forget the foundation and mascara and save room for your eye lash curlers instead.

Scarf - If jewellery is not your thing then a scarf is your go-to accessory. You do not need a designer scarf to make your outfit look fancy. Instead, chose abstract prints, vibrant colours and soft, flowing fabrics. You can even consider packing a few different scarves, as they do not take up much space and will also keep you warm if you are travelling to some place cold. You can brighten-up any basic outfit with a scarf, which can also double up as a sarong or beach towel.

Handbags - We all know that a clutch looks great when you are going 'out-out' but carrying a small, tan backpack or a fringe shoulder bag will make you look fashionable but feel chilled. Do not forget to choose a bag with many pockets and zips. Everything from your phone, sunglasses and water bottle to your journal, passport and cash should easily fit in to your bag. It will also reduce the chances of losing anything and of course, you already know how stylish it looks.

Finally, do not forget to do your research about the place you are visiting and check the weather forecast in advance. There is nothing more disappointing than packing your favourite dress and not being able to wear it because it's 0-degree's outside. From personal experiences of living out of a backpack or a van, my final tip to you guys is... Keep it simple and stay natural.

So go, pack your bags and rule the world (or at least the place you are visiting) with your own personal style.
