You don't have to wear typical "backpacker" clothes if you don't want to on your trip to Europe. If you enjoy fashion but are nervous about putting together outfits you like - without sacrificing room in your suitcase - take a look at these photos from fabulous European ladies and pack staple pieces inspired by their street style.
Travel Fashion Inspired by European Street Style
Key Wardrobe Staples:
Shoes: stylish sneakers, flat motorcycle boots, heels (be careful on cobblestone!), and loafers
Tops: puffer coats, faux fur, basic t-shirts, breezy and girly tanks
Bottoms: classic skinny jeans, wax-coated jeans, black leggings, leather leggings, knife-pleated skirts
Accessories: sunglasses, chic hats & beanies, structured bags, scarves
Colors: black is always the "new black," and you can never go wrong with neutrals
How to streamline your Euro-inspired wardrobe for your suitcase
Choose versatile items that you can use to mix and match. That one outfit that you might possibly wear for that one special occasion will just take up room in your suitcase...stuffed at the bottom somewhere under your dirty socks. Only take what you need and pieces you can create multiple looks with.
Comfort is key. Yes, your heels look fabulous with that dress, but will you honestly survive in those on a 2-hour walking tour? I didn't think so. Take inspo from the ladies featured with some stylish sneakers or flat boots!
Finish off your look with a statement accessory. Adding a scarf, coat, or hat has the power to transform your outfit with little effort.
