Since learning the hard way on my first solo travel expedition that carrying your own bag can be an absolute hinderance to any holiday I have packed lightly. Carrying less clothing does not mean looking less stylish as long as you pack smart with each item matching another and some statement accessories. This is not too much of a hassle for me as I wear black 90% of the time so almost everything coordinates.
This outfit is one of my classic everyday looks and features staple items that I could not travel without including;
a leather jacket adding instant cool factor to any look,
skinny jeans that can be dressed up or down,
trainers for optimum comfort whilst travelling,
a plain black top that goes with any outfit
and a statement necklace to brighten up those blacks.
