Alicioustravels: Travel Essentials – Clothing

More than any other category of essentials, the type of clothing highly depends on where you’ll be travelling. When out hiking, your clothing needs will be drastically different than on a city trip or beach break.

Still, there are a few items I will always bring:

  • 1 pair of dark blue jeans
  • Nude + black bra
  • Underwear for 7 days
  • Socks
  • Shirts for 7 days (short and long sleeved)
  • 1-2 cardigans
  • Spare pair of trousers
  • Hooded sweater
  • Scarf/ pashmina
  • Sunhat/ beanie
  • Bathers (1 bikini + 1 bathing suit)
  • Sarong
  • Pjs
  • Yoga pants (for workouts/ yoga and lounging)
  • Thongs (as in flip flops)
  • Walking shoes
  • Softshell jacket

You may want to consider bringing something “nice” like a dress shirt that goes with the dark jeans or a light dress (which you’ll need shoes for though) for that beautiful restaurant or if you’re planning on going to the opera/ theatre regularly. Or just because every now and then it feels really good to look pretty and put-together.

When we are planning on hiking I will also pack:

  • Quick-dry shirts (usually, they pack really light and weigh barely anything)
  • A pair of long thermals
  • Beanie
  • Gloves
  • 2 pairs of hiking socks
  • Quick-dry underwear (1 top, 2 bottoms)
  • Primaloft jacket
  • A small backpack as a daypack

Once I’m back from New York I’ll let you know how my packing went, what things I didn’t pack and what items I simply had to bring.

Anything you feel I should better be packing in the future? Do you think I’m overpacking? If so, which items should I leave at home next time?
