7 Cute Summer Road Trip Outfits
Nothing says summer like a road trip! Whether you’re headed to the beach or across the state, a road trip is the perfect way to take in the scenery as you reach your destination.
Of course, a road trip also takes planning. From deciding on rest stops to choosing snacks, it’s all part of the experience. The same goes for choosing which clothes to wear on a road trip.
Read on for our tips for how to dress for a road trip along with some outfit inspiration that will help you stay comfortable while looking stylish.
How to Dress For a Road Trip
When you’re going on a road trip, it’s all about dressing for comfort without sacrificing your aesthetic. Here are some other tips for how to dress for a road trip:
- Be comfortable: We can’t emphasize this enough! Finding comfortable outfits to wear is key to enjoying your trip. No one wants to have a zipper digging into their stomach or a scratchy tag for a long car ride.
- Pack layers: One of the most important travel tips is to pack layers. No matter how you travel, layers are great for preparing you for all kinds of adventures. For instance, does your passenger want the AC blasting? No problem, just throw on a sweatshirt!
- Mix and match: When taking a road trip you have to be mindful of your space. To avoid overpacking, look for travel outfits that are light, easy to clean, and can be easily mixed and matched.
