There’s no time quite like a holiday to wear printed shirts. Keeping autumn trends as the focus, pick shirts that are in deep shades of green, red and blue. You can also pack a few denim or chambray shirts. They are extremely stylish, and since they are thicker than cotton shirts, they are excellent to wear while travelling.
When it comes to outerwear, pack a few pull-over sweaters, but don’t forget these 2 essentials — a fashionable blazer and a slim-fit zip-up jacket. A blazer is perfect for slightly formal dinners and a sporty zip-up jacket makes for a versatile layering piece — one that’s casual and extremely comfortable.
Apart from the usual jeans, pack a pair or two of thick chinos. They offer structure much like a pair of trousers would, but are a holiday-appropriate option. If you want something slightly more formal to pair with a crisp shirt, a pair of tweed or wool-blend trousers is ideal. They give your ensemble a chic Parisian vibe.
Apart from a pair of loafers for the occasional night of cocktails or dinner at an upscale restaurant, be sure to pack a few pairs of stylish casual lace-ups for all the walking and exploring that you are bound to do. Two-toned shoes are a hot trend, so pick ones with a combination of blue and red or black and green. If you want to steer clear of wearing colour on your shoes, you can also opt for 2-toned casual sneakers in varying shades of brown, or a navy pair with leather trims.
For accessories such as wallets, pack a mix in autumnal hues such as burnt red, rich brown, navy and hunter green. They will pair well with most of your outfits and look decidedly different from your structured everyday office wallet. As far as belts are concerned, pick belts in soft leather, canvas or a blend of both. Beige, tan and taupe make for wearable neutral options.
