Flight and accommodations? Check. Passport? Check. Itinerary? Check. Now that all of the major details for your exciting trip ahead have been handled, it’s time to fill your suitcase with stylish comforts for your European travels!
Packing for any sort of trip can quickly become overwhelming. There’s always the fear of forgetting something, packing too much, not packing enough, or simply having no idea what the best items are to bring! To help relieve this stress and allow you to enjoy your traveling experience from beginning to end, we’ve come up with a list of fashionable, comfortable, and functional items that are made for traveling in Europe.
You will surely be doing plenty of walking on your trip, so make sure your feet can handle the adventure you’re about to take them on with a comfortable pair of sneakers. A pro tip for new shoes is to break them in a few weeks prior to traveling. That way, you prevent getting blisters that could put a damper on your trip.
For women, we suggest the ECCO Soft 7 Sneaker. They’re fashionable enough to wear with all outfits, yet they’re fit for comfort with the Ecco Comfort Fiber System, a durable rubber outsole as well as a leather lining for breathability!
For men, the Johnston & Murphy Waterproof Prentiss XC4(R) Casual Dress Plain Toe Sneaker, is made of waterproof leathers and a removable footbed that provides comfort.
Alby Apparel Travel T-Shirts
Euro-style can be best described as minimalist so what better way to embody European fashion than with a basic t-shirt?
Alby Apparel Travel T-Shirts is where fashion meets function. Available for both men and women, these tees are not only super light to travel with, but they’re water and odor resistant thanks to the use of eco-friendly technology, Filium.
These lightweight pants pair well with sneakers, flats, boots, and can even be dressed up with heels or dress shoes.
For men, the UNIONBAY Rainier Lightweight Comfort Travel Tech Chino Pants offer comfort and ease of movement with its stretch fabric that is also quick drying and water resistant!
The Sadie Skinny Chino Pant from Mountain Khaki are a great option for women. They stretch, they’re stylish…they’re made for traveling!
No matter how many times you check the forecast at your desired destination, mother nature is unpredictable, which means there is always a chance of rain or inclement weather. Don’t let a little drizzle get in the way of your sightseeing – pack a good-quality rain jacket that can keep you both warm and dry.
This Columbia Women’s Arcadia II Jacket has Omni-Tech technology making it waterproof and breathable. Plus, it has an adjustable storm hood and it’s packable!
To all of our male travelers, don’t feel left out – Columbia also offers a Watertight II Packable Rain Jacket to help you stay prepared in case of any sudden rainfall!
This versatile item can be used for a multitude of purposes when traveling: a blanket on the plane, a cover up for visiting religious sites, a scarf to keep warm, dressing up an outfit, an impromptu umbrella-it’s pretty much ready for any scenario that might get thrown your way!
This large pashmina comes in a variety of colors and is both fashionable and functional!
The equivalent to a travel shawl/pashmina for men would be this Moisture-Wicking Scarf that helps to keep you warm while also absorbing moisture to help keep you dry.
Packable Duffle Bag
A packable rain jacket is a game changer when it comes to convenience, but a packable duffle bag is a life saver! Instead of carrying your big backpack around filled with all of your clothes and accessories, use a packable duffle bag to carry around any snacks, water or souvenirs you may pick up while you’re out and about exploring your new surroundings!
This Herschel Supply Co. Packable Duffle is super light and convenient if you went a little overboard while shopping and are now having a difficult time fitting everything into your suitcase/bag.
Good news! Fanny packs are back in style and more convenient than ever. With its major comeback, there’s no item more fashionable, efficient, and comfortable, especially when it comes to walking around and sightseeing.
For women, the KAVU Stroll Around Belt Bag can’t be beat. It has plenty of cute styles to choose from and it’s slim and compact. While men might not be too keen on wearing a fanny pack, the EGOGO Travel Sport Waist Pack is just sporty and stylish to convince them to wear one. Plus, it’s perfect for storing away your phone, snacks, water bottle, and other on-the-go necessities.
There will be plenty more things to pack for your European trip, but these stylish, comfort-focused clothing and accessories are a perfect place to start – because being comfortable and feeling good is all part of making your trip memorable!
