The year-end is synonymous to travels. It’s the season when you let the travelbug in you out as you plan your desired holidays — whether it’s up in the snowy mountains of Japan or to the most metropolitan city like London or Paris just to fulfil your shopping list. But no matter where you’re heading to for your trips, there’s always one concern — where do you start when it comes to packing?
The idea of packing simple pieces to mix and match throughout the duration of your holiday sounds like a great idea. But what if you want to play dress up for special occasions during your sojourn or to capture the perfect #OOTD shot against the picturesque Eiffel Tower?
Here’s where we step in with a little help from our friends at MICHAEL KORS, Tory Burch, Giuseppe Zanotti and Tumi. But before we get you inspired with what to wear during your vacation, ask yourself — what type of style traveller are you?
The serious party-goer
Whenever there is a party, you can bet that the party-goer traveller will definitely be there. One that is willing to travel just for the adrenaline rush, the party-goer packs the fanciest outfits they have in the luggage — pieces that move with the beat well. These travellers are also one that know how to let loose and enjoy a good time, in style.

The social media addict
Social media is pretty much the source of life for this specific traveller. The ones you see on Instagram with the coolest newsfeed of beautiful locations and equally stunningly curated ensemble to match. She or he packs solely to take pictures at popular holiday destinations and to be honest, there’s nothing wrong with that. They’ll do anything for the Gram, even lugging that cumbersome outerwear if it looks good on camera. The items picked are usually planned out before the trip, which also to ensure that the outfits will match its surroundings.

The utilitarian traveller
Not as hardcore as the social media addict or fashion-conscious traveller, the utilitarian traveller is one that prioritises comfort and practicality without compromising on style. Utilitarian travellers usually pack clothes that are functional and easy to match — so think lots of basic staples. Don’t think that it’s all just sweatpants and hoodies, there are functional clothes that carry a touch of panache to keep your style and comfort checked during your holidays.

The ardent fashion lover
A traveller with a high interest in style — a fashion traveller doesn’t exactly dress for the Gram but for her or himself. This person has flair and taste, a fine balance between being a standout in the crowd and the head-turning soul in the room. Bold prints, bright colours are what you’ll usually be able to find in their suitcase — fashionista doesn’t mind being loud, they are unapologetic.
