Travel Essentials Packing List: Style-Mix




25 style ideas to mix and match with just 8 pieces of women’s travel clothing!


Leggings are a great multi-purpose item to add to your travel capsule wardrobe! You can use them for added warmth, as pants, or pajamas. A basic set of black leggings is wearable with anything! Choose a thin, microfiber type fabric and even the cheapest leggings will practically come out dry from the washing machine. Ideal!


These are the most recommended, best leggings for women who travel.




If you only pack one dress, make it a little black travel dress. You can top it with a tank or cover it up with a button-down top. Style it up for a night out or make it casual for the day. Every girl should pack at least one dress as part of her backpacking clothing!
