What You SHOULD Wear On Your Next Travel Abroad


Mark your calendars; I am making history by writing something completely out of my genre. Lol. No, I refuse to say that this is related to #OOTD posts, nor is it a sponsored post. Or even anything close enough to a fashion column. I refuse to give into the bandwagon when it comes to blogging about these kinds of things – I leave that to the passionate ones, the experts, and the hobbyists.

HOWEVER.

This post is my take on reinventing the wheel. Making things easier when it comes to the battle between travels and wears. Traveling and clothing don’t have to be too complicated. It doesn’t have to be too dreaded, especially for people like me who often lack the time and resources to put in the leg work and man hours to check every single shopping center for some good travel wears. #youwithme?

We all like to do as the locals do when it comes to traveling to different places. One important aspect to consider is to do as how the locals would do when it comes to dressing up. The simplest, most basic detail, which often gets overlooked, because we are just TOO EXCITED about the place.

An observation: if you clothe yourself with something different from the culture, you’ll turn out to be the travel highlight of the locals. Not unless, that’s what you’re gunning for, then by all means, do as the locals do. True story, just saying.

So… tapping in on the techy side and utilizing the current trend, the best way to do the right thing on this aspect is to do ONLINE SHOPPING. Shirts, pants, footwear, miscellaneous whether for spring, summer, autumn, or winter – everything can be done online. Kinda late with this trend, turns out, a lot of Asians do these nowadays, cos it’s very easy.

We all have our own preferences, so I’ll leave the picking of clothes to your judgment, but may I recommend this one? Maybe like the New Look Men’s Collection from Zalora?

Easily found this as one of the best choices in Singapore, suits the Asian style, but at the same time Europe / Western-ly adequate. So yes, nothing too passionate, too expert, too hobbyist over here, just saying that what you should be wearing on your next travel abroad should probably come online… #truestory #justsaying #imo

Aside from seeing all the new arrivals easily, good thing is that you can view everything and all – just by scrolling your fingers and adjusting your lazy boy computer chair. I like the part that you can even filter the products by price, by brand, by size, by color. And I always go for the jackets and coats, jumper and cardigans, and hoodies and sweatshirts – these are all travel friendly and are generally local friendly, so it’s a good pick! Check out the shoes too!

There’s a 30 Days Free Return policy, Free Delivery, and Cash on Delivery. Once you register (even using Facebook), you can even create a wish list and track your orders. I’m no brand ambassador, but from a completely technical and social observation, I think Zalora deserves ten-finity thumbs up... or a kick for good job!

I must say your describe beautifully in your blog post that what should we wear during travel especially in abroad. You are right clothes should not be complicated during travel. We must follow the local culture. I note down your suggestions because I am going by coast bus tour. I think these suggestions have worth for tourists.

Hey Buddy, the coast bus tour sounds like a good idea! Thanks for noting this down, will try this when I go there!

BowdyWanders, Yesterday I just came back from my tour and I follow your suggestions during my tour. I must say that was a lovely experience for me. I went to Niagara Falls and enjoy the ride Maid of the Mist. Must visit there and enjoy the boat ride.

It is really great to find clothes which would suit both the asian and European styles.

A blend of both sides of world is desirable being a tourist.

Definitely will keep this in mind when planning for the next travel.
