Fashion Travel Tips!

We’re just weeks away from Spring Break and then comes the summer vacation travel season. Vacation travel can get a bit overwhelming, so we’re here to help you make the most of your upcoming trips and how to make the most of what you pack. Outlets of Colorado, and its partners Fox 21 and the Colorado Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau, have put together some great fashion travel tips you’ll want to use as you get ready to get out-of-town:

Think Comfort: When traveling, look for fabrics that stretch like cotton knits or blends. Some of our favorites are nylon, Lycra, and spandex. These items pack better and come out wrinkle-free.

Keep Colors Basic: Colors should be basic and your separates should mix and match. Black, white, khaki and denim are ideal, but don’t be afraid of punchy colors like red or orange for summer.

Shoes: You don’t have to bring a pair of shoes for every outfit. We recommend a casual sandal and a dressy sandal (if you’re heading somewhere tropic). Bring a pair of flip-flops for the pool/beach and athletic shoes for workout or long sights-seeing trips.

Shorts, Skirts, and Tops: Great looks for the day are shorts, skirts, and tops. Take a few extra tank tops to layer or to wear on their own. One great hint I heard from a friend who is a worldwide traveler, avoid logo T-shirts or flashy designer goods, they’ll both you make stand out as a tourist.

Night on the Town: Whether you pack a short dress or long, a great dress will make any night special. We recommend a great black dress will take you anywhere.

Cardigan: In and out of air-conditioned buildings can give you the chills. A lightweight knit cardigan in basic black or white can be tossed around the shoulders. You can also create many looks with a cardigan – layer over a T-Shirt or tank dress or worn alone with dressy pants for dinner.

Accessories: A friend told me that she buys accessories while on vacation. She doesn’t bring her expensive jewelry but instead she loves to buy local treasures. She considers it her souvenir from the trip (really, do you need another magnet?).

On behalf of Outlets at Castle Rock, Outlets at Loveland, and Outlets at Silverthorne, along with Fox 21 and the Colorado Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau we wish safe and fun travels!
