Paloma ClothingGoing on a vacation to a resort is such an exciting experience. Whether you and your friends are taking a long overdue girls’ trip, or you and your significant other are enjoying each other’s company on a much-needed romantic getaway, you want to pack light while still having a stylish outfit for every occasion. Here, Paloma Clothing discusses great travel fashion tips and suggests some brands that are excellent for travel, all of which can be found in our inventory.

Think about Temperature While You Pack

When going to a tropical resort for vacation, it’s safe to assume it will be hot. However, you need to keep in mind that most indoor establishments will be air-conditioned to provide a break from the heat. You don’t want to be without anything to provide you comfort and warmth for when you get lunch after lying outside all morning.

Cotton is your new best friend when traveling. It’s a lightweight fabric that is comfortable, and extremely breathable, but it can also provide you with enough layering to keep you cozy while inside an air-conditioned establishment. Also, cotton garments are a great option because they are so easy to pack in your suitcase or your carry-on luggage.

Versatile Pieces for Multiple Outfits

When traveling on vacation, you want the best of both worlds. You want to pack as little as possible so you’re not over the airline weight limit for luggage, but you also want plenty of trendy options. Our advice to you is to choose pieces that can work double duty, meaning that they can work with more than one outfit. Here are a few pieces to consider for your suitcase:

  • Leggings: Whether you dress them up or down, leggings can be worn with a variety of outfits for different occasions. Wear them under a tunic, dress, sweater, or longer shirt for a variety of styles.
  • Infinity or convertible dress: Appropriate for a fancy dinner or just over your bathing suit at the beach, this versatile dress allows for multiple occasions.
  • Oversized scarves: You may get some looks for packing a scarf on a tropical vacation, but trust us, you’ll be glad you did. A blanket scarf can keep you warm on the plane and even double as a pillow for those long layovers in the airport. Once you arrive at your tropical destination, you now have a blanket for the beach.

Great Brands for Travelling

When thinking in terms of a brand that’s great for traveling, you want one that offers a variety of clothing options, styles, and colors that are also lightweight and breathable to keep you comfortable in the heat. And remember, cotton is one of the best investments you can make for your travel wardrobe! Here are a few of the brands we recommend, which we proudly carry at our Portland, Oregon boutique:
