Slowly but surely life is getting back to normal. It can mean something else for everyone, for me it looks like it’s getting back to travelling. To make it a bit more interesting and to have fun while I travel, I decided to pack only dresses and skirts for a week. Not because it was recommended, but I just wanted to challenge my wardrobe and make it work harder for me. And I hope I will inspire you, that to wear only skirts and dresses while you travel is possible. Let’s embrace the week in dresses and skirts.
A Week In Dresses and Skirts
Most of the time I wear jeans and looking tomboyish, but summer challenged me a bit and I pulled out dresses and skirts. And this week I realized how easy is to look effortlessly chic. I fell in love with the comfort of dresses and skirts. They are easier to wear than shorts/pants when you like to be put together or you just want to feel better in any situation.
The dress on its own creates the outfit, so you should add a perfect fit and style to your capsule wardrobe if you didn’t do it until now. Add comfortable shoes for a day look, trainers for a weekend or heels for a night out or work and you can beat the day.
Trends are changing, so we do, what is great and natural. But if we choose the fabric and a simple cut and style the good skirt can take us far. Same as the dresses it can be dressed up or dressed down. I love to wear skirts with the simple t-shirt for an everyday look and with the silk top for more dressed up look or for hot summer days.
As this should be a little guide on what to pack or what to wear for a week, the t-shirts are important items on the list. They make dressing a bit easier. Choose one what you feel the best in, suits your shape and needs. The staple of your basic everyday wardrobe shouldn’t be left behind when you travel.
The silk tops can be worn on its own in the summer heat but if you like to wear it longer they make a perfect versatile piece of clothing. Worn nicely under sweaters.
For a travel light wardrobe, the idea is to take only a single bag. So make it big enough to fit all your clothes in but choose the one what stands for any occasion. What I found really easy when I packed the skirts and dresses that they don’t take that much space as trousers and shorts does.
Same as with the bag the ideal would be to take only a single pair of shoes. But sometimes it’s impossible to wear one and pack another pair. It gives you more options to play around with your simple wardrobe.
Hope I inspired you a bit to wear more dresses and skirts. If you like more inspiration, have a look at my Pinterest or pop to see my other capsule wardrobe outfits. But mostly enjoy the rest of the summer.
