Travel Lifestyle “I believe one should dress like one is already famous.“



Cultural Fusion & fashionThe world indeed has become a smaller place with technology making inroads into our homes. Global Nomading is the new trend that has taken the world by storm. With more & more people traveling the globe; cultures, tastes, food, lifestyle all are witnessing a new future. The cult of Cultural Fusion & fashion is here to stay.

Looks & Style

In today’s digital era when looks & style define your personality and mindset, it’s important that you are prepared and dressed for the occasion & place.

Travel Lifestyle requires both, comfort and style. While you are making memories with the breathtaking surroundings around you, it’s important that you look good too. So wait no more. “Chin Up” Travelers, Dress well. It’s time for a Selfie Statement.


Your reason to travel to a destination influences your travel wardrobe. Be it for Business, leisure or a family vacation.

Here’s a sneek peek into the high trending travel fashion list.


Before setting out to explore a new place, experience sides of it that you have never seen before. It’s good to view, read, and surf as research is the best way to feel the pulse of the place.

Feeling familiar and comfortable amongst the local clan is most important. It may just land you up with love of your life or friends for lifetime.

Getting ready for a Flight

We see a lot of men wearing khaki pants and polo tees at airports. My personal favorite though is camouflage-patterned cargo shorts and full sleeves tees with a “whacky” tagline on the front. You meet unknown people aboard and this whacky, creative tagline can be an ice breaker to attract people to start a conversation. While comfort is utmost priority, it throws a style statement on the floor. If tees are not your choice, go for sweat shirts with a hood.

Winter Clothing

Most of us like to bundle up cozy, adding layers of clothes in winters that not only make us feel heavy, sweat more and look fat & ugly. Big puffy & bulky clothes are not ideal to pack as well.

Trends that I suggest would be a combination of these, stick to neutral colors

  • Grey/ camel coloured chinos
  • White and blue Oxford cloth shirts
  • White and navy t-shirts
  • Thick denim
  • Grey V-neck jumper
  • Neutral knitted neck ties
  • Black Trainers (Adidas, Nike etc)
  • Brown desert boots/ boat shoes/ penny loafers
  • Navy winter oversized coats
  • A statement knit, V neck jumper
  • Woolen scarf’s

Winter Clothing for Men, LifestyleSummer Clothing

When temperatures in summer are soaring up, suggest that you too dress to raise the heat with your styles.

Khaki field jackets, chinos and bush shirts (short sleeves and two chest pockets) will all work well for an urban expedition.

Wider-legged trousers or shall we say, relaxed trousers are the perfect way to ensure your legs are relaxed during peak summers.

And aren’t we all tired of squeezing ourselves into the same slim and skinny fits anyway?

Summer Clothing for Men, Lifestyle


Bracelets: Be it your style or not but leather bracelets can add a touch of personality to any outfit. Ideally, look for leather or canvas options that are comfortable to wear barring beach or formal occasions.

Travel Wallet: If you’re off to explore new horizons, then a simple travel wallet will be your saviour. Keep all of your essentials – flight tickets, currency, credit cards and spare change – stored smartly and securely.

Sun glasses/ Shades: Summers wouldn’t be summers without a pair of colorful, trendy shades in your arsenal. And if you’re looking to add some colour in your travel life, then try a pair of statement Wayfarers and Reflectors.

Slip on Socks: Invisible socks will keep your feet comfortable and shoes stink-free.

Hat & Head Gears: An easy and stylish way to stay cool in the heat, a brimmed hat in a soft straw weave is ideal for peak summers.

A refined silhouette with a medium to wide brim, such as a panama will keep the sun off your head and face while lending your look a touch of gentlemanly sophistication.

Woven Belt: The woven belt is a classic that will add a French Riviera feel to any outfit while exuding an air of sophistication.

Watch & a tote bag

Your clothing isn’t the only thing that should be adjusted to suit the heat – your accessories should too.

Lightweight, breathable and summer-ready, it’s a simple switch that makes all the difference to both your look and comfort levels in the heat.


Dressing smart but comfortable seems like the biggest challenge for a long haul flight.

I have learnt the hard way before I got few things right and I am still learning by the day.

Here’s a preview to my side of wisdom.

What to Wear on a Long Haul Flight:

Loosely layered cotton /linen tops. I suggest wear a vest top, t-shirt or long sleeved top, followed by a cardigan, sweater or light jacket. Jazz up your tops with neutral shades of kimonos.

Oversized Jumper with Leggings or cotton stretch trousers look elegant and help your body breathes better throughout your journey.

Accessorize with a Sarong/scarf and stylish loafers.

Lip balms, Moisturizers & Cleansing pads are musts in your kitty,

Travel Pillow, socks, ear plugs and eye Masks for those tireless long journeys.

Winter Wear

Carry the style that suits your persona and enhances the body contours.

– Leather pants, Flare style-pants instead of Jeans
– Black jacket with faux collar
– Knee length long boots/ Snow boots
– Off shoulder black short dress
– Cashmere hat
– Pencil skirts

Winter Wear for Women, Lifestyle

Summer Wear

Popular looks for this season

– Sun Dress /Maxi dress/ Scarf
– Tank/leggings
– Denim & lace shorts
– Cotton trousers/tank jeans
– Cotton bandana, romper & hats

Summer Wear- Beach Wear for Women, Lifestyle

Beach Wear

Swim wear comes in varied options; halter -two piece bikinis, swim dresses are fun and pretty.

Wear them to the beach with crochet mini dress.

A maxi dress is also a good choice because it could take you from pool side to a beach front dinner.

Tips to Survive Long Travel Journey’s




Travel is one of the best ways to experience the world. They say travelling the world is akin to living several lifetimes. While most people aren’t pro travelers but one definitely learns with experience.

You make loads of mistakes in fact each escapade is a learning in its own self.  Travel can’t be mastered it’s an ongoing process that comes from missing busses, ignorance about cultures, rituals and countless tiny errors.  So, while you keep learning from your journeys,

here is a small effort to help others by sharing tips that I learnt along my way.

Three tips to help you survive long travel journeys

The recent advances in communication and transportation technologies have even made long-distance travels more comfortable and less tiresome.

Some people crave such experiences, while some would rather stay home than have to endure that 16-hour flight, or the day-long drive across the country. The difference between these two types of people is often their ability to prepare for such journeys. If you struggle to enjoy such long trips, here are a few crucial tips.


Packing is one of those tedious but necessary elements of any journey. It seems simple enough, but packing well can make or break one’s journey. You don’t want to arrive at the beach only to find that you don’t have a swimming costume with you. Imagine going on a camping trip only to find that there were no batteries packed, or matches for the all-important campfire. It is therefore important to pack well and pack early.

The secret to doing this is to have a checklist prepared. Go through the activities planned for the whole trip and make sure to be well prepared for each thing. Avoid the last-minute rush as it is where most people forget important additions.

Why not pack a bag specifically for the journey to your destination? Think hand luggage on planes, but apply it to whatever mode of travel you’re taking. Pack plenty of snacks if you’re in the car; an audiobook does wonders to pass the time if you’re short on space. Going via ferry? Have a hoodie at hand to stay warm – even when the sun’s shining, it’ll be cold on deck!

Research and Prepare

Spontaneous trips are fun, but there is still no excuse to go to places without planning well. This is especially the case for long-distance destinations. It is important to learn as much as possible about where you’re going. Look at the available hotels, learn about their food and practice some of the local lingo – pleases and thank yous really make a difference, and this is the perfect way to pass time while you’re travelling to your destination. Also check out the general culture, the dos, the don’ts and the expectations.

Before you set off, make sure all devices are fully charged and that there is a backup. Chargers and power banks come in handy during long journeys for those who can’t keep away from their phones and laptops. Stock up on snacks and drinks, especially water and lots of games, especially for the kids.


Always expect the best but be ready for the worst. It is essential that at least one trusted person knows where you are at all times. Also, keep your emergency numbers handy in case of any problems such as your car breaking down. This is especially important if you’re travelling with kids! Ensure you have all your medication packed where necessary and that you have taken the required travel vaccinations.

These tips might seem like a handful but they are completely necessary. Following them ensures a smooth enough journey and an enjoyable visit to whatever destination you’ve chosen. Happy holidays!

5 top tips if you’re travelling long term




Long-term travel sounds like such a glamorous concept, and it’s probably fine if you have the money to be able to afford it! You need to keep in mind that travel can be an expense, but I think it is also one of the best ways of improving your life and enriching your future. Long-term travel really allows you to find yourself and work on deciding the direction you want to take your life in.

Whether it’s backpacking, couch surfing, or hotel living, long-term travel can provide all sorts of really amazing opportunities, and this is one of the reasons why I love it. It is a great way of seeing more of the world and reality changing your life perspective. So, you want to arm yourself with some of my amazing tips that are going to help you make the most of this experience. Here are five of the best ones I hope will help get you started right now.

1. Choose your destination(s) carefully

I would advise you start by making sure you choose the right sort of destination or destinations for long-term travel. This often involves separating the great places from the not so great, and this can be challenging. Identify the places you want to visit, but also try to make sure you know what you want to do when you’re there.

One of the places I absolutely insist you add to your bucket is the Indian city of Jammu, known locally as the City of Temples. This is a picturesque paradise with plenty of cultural heritage as well. Places like this are ideal to experience on your long-term travel adventures.

2. Budget meticulously

You also need to understand that travelling long-term is going to be expensive, and you’re also going to experience different costs in different cities. This is why it’s so important to sit down and come up with a long-term travel budget. Sure, it might sound boring, but you’ll definitely thank me for it later! You’re going to need to know an approximate figure for how much money you need per day in each place you visit, and this is something you should determine as soon as you can.

3. Start saving now

As well as coming up with a budget, I would also advise you start trying to save as much as possible right now. There are a lot of costs involved in long-term travel, and you need to make sure you have some money saved before you go. This is something you need to make a start on sooner rather than later.

If you’re travelling for a long period of time, you might be able to get a work visa so you can earn money as you travel. However, I would advise not relying on this, and making sure you have plenty of cash as a safety net to help you through your travels.

4. Plan, but don’t overplan

It’s important to make sure you plan your adventure thoroughly, but don’t over plan at the same time. I think it’s important to identify the places that aren’t worth your time so you can focus on those that are.

For example, The Secret Traveller from 1Cover reveals that the Spanish Steps in Rome and the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen rank among the world’s most disappointing tourist attractions. You should avoid these, and focus your energy on seeing the things that are going to change your life. But also leave some space in your schedule, because you want a bit of spontaneity to the trip as well, right?

5. Becoming a packing savant

Urgh, the dreaded packing! Look, I hate packing as much as the next person, and I’m sure you’re no different. But, unfortunately, it’s a necessary evil of travel, especially long-term travel. You need to be more methodical and purposeful with your packing for long-term travel because you’re going to need to fit a lot more in.

One of the best packing tips for long-term travel is to roll your clothes so they take up much less space, and you can fit a lot more stuff in. Plan your packing in advance, and make sure you come up with ideas that are going to help you make this a much less stressful experience.

These are just a few ideas you need to keep in mind if you’re preparing to travel long-term. You’re going to have an adventure and an important experience, and it’s one that you need to make the most of.

If you think I’ve missed anything important off the list, please drop me a line in the comments below.
