Dressing for your destination

May 17, 2016

Packing for an overseas experience is daunting for most – and there are always those few pieces you pack, that you’ll just never end up wearing! Effective packing is all about understanding the climate and culture you’re about to immerse yourself in. So, we’ve put together some of our favourite fashion picks for popular travel destinations. 

Singapore

With our friendly neighbours in Singapore a short 8-hour flight away, it’s a popular destination for both work and play.

Singapore is known for its humidity – so the key to travelling from Marina Bay Sands to the Botanic Gardens and finishing with an original Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel, is ensuring your outfit is breathable and comfortable, without sacrificing style.

Linen is a clear winner in this department, and this mid-length dress from Trenery ticks all the right boxes, keeping you fashion forward and fresh from morning until night. Trenery is located at T4. 

NYC

Visiting New York City in the winter months is a rite of passage for many Aussies. Experiencing a white Christmas, ice-skating in Central Park and strolling through the snow lined paths of downtown SoHo can get chilly! When travelling to NYC in winter, layering is essential.

While the weather outside might be frightful, most buildings have extensive heating systems that will soon have you sweltering. Layer your winter look with a scarf, hat and gloves, which can easily be added when you’re ready to brace the cold. Like this great Larger than Life Check Blanket Scarf from Sportsgirl Accessories located in T3. Pair with full woolen gloves and a textured cap to give you an edgy NYC look. 

Greece

Escaping the Aussie winter?

Island hopping is the perfect way to embrace the sun and culture throughout Europe, and Greece has arguably some of the best islands on offer.

Whether you’re partying at a day club in Mykonos, gazing at the sunset in Santorini or wandering through the streets of Paros, nothing screams summer in Europe quite like the fabulous flair of Desigual.

If you’re heading to the Greek islands, this chic Desigual tunic-style dress is a must pack item to throw over a bikini and shift effortlessly from the beach to a long lunch in the sun. Desigual is located at T4.
