Staying on top of your style is just as important when you’re traveling as it is during your day-to-day life. You never know who you’ll run into at the airport bar or out lounging by the hotel pool, and you want to make sure you show off your very best self no matter where you are going. However, it can be tough to look perfectly composed and stylish when you don’t have access to your closet and full wardrobe. Fear not — as long as you make room for packing these men’s travel style essentials, you’ll be well on your way to being the most stylish gent on the plane.
Here are Armitron’s 5 Travel Style Must-Haves for Men
No one said you have to sacrifice style for comfort! Designers are coming out with plenty of awesomely stylish “dress sneakers” that can take you from the office to the beach and everywhere in between. Traveling usually means a fair amount of walking in between destinations, in airports, etc., so you want to make sure you have a nice pair of sneakers you can throw on that won’t cramp your style.
Traveling means staying on schedule, whether you are going away for business or pleasure, so make sure you wear a handsome wristwatch to ensure you’re always be on time. Whether it is a digital watch or a dress watch, you can still keep your time looking stylish.
This Armitron Analog-Digital Watch with Black Resin Strap makes checking the time effortless. Featuring analog-digital functions, this Armitron watch is the perfect watch to take you from the airport to dinner. If your trip doesn’t involve any fancier events, than this Armitron Digital Watch with Chronograph and Black Resin Strap is a great choice. The black resin strap is comfortable and great for travel, while the large digital display and chronograph function make keeping track of time easy. It’s great to have options: You may want to bring along more than one watch so you can choose based on where you’re going and what you’re planning to wear.
Sometimes style means just paring down to the very basics — and what’s more basic than a traditional white T-shirt? White T-shirts go with just about anything and are an absolute essential while traveling. You can wear them under a sweater or Oxford shirt for a casual look or sport one underneath a sharp blazer for evening style. They’re also great when paired with swim trunks for a trip down to the pool or beach.
All guys should have a lightweight blazer on hand while traveling, whether it’s a business trip or a family vacation. Many nice restaurants require jackets for men, and blazers pair well with both dress slacks and jeans. They also add a layer of warmth for chilly nights. Go for a casual blazer in a lightweight fabric for the most versatility.
Rain can easily ruin a great outfit, and you don’t want to show up to a meeting or appointment sopping wet. A small collapsible umbrella is an essential travel accessory. They are lightweight and don’t take up much space, and you’ll be thankful you brought it when the rain clouds start moving in. It will help keep you looking sharp while you’re on the go. Don’t let a few rain clouds put a damper on your day!
These travel accessories are an absolute must to make sure you stay stylish while you’re jet setting around the world, so it’s worth it to make room for them in your suitcase. Doing so ensures you never have to worry about looking great — no matter where your travels may take you.
