Stylish and functional. Two things that are important for women travelers.

I know a lot about the second topic, functional, and I'm learning more about the first one. I have to admit, I've never been accused of being the queen of style.

Look back through most of my photo albums from past trips and they look like I'm "Explorer Sandi" or on a backpacking trip. Everything had lots of pockets. The pants usually were the convertible cargo-style pants so that I could get two items in one. If I wore a pair of convertibles and packed a pair, that meant there were four outfits, right?

It's only recently that I began to realize that a women traveler can don clothing that's not only functional, complete with pockets and safety features, but look stylish as well. You just have to know where to shop and then do some advance planning so that those items can be budgeted into your trip expenses.

The benefit to incorporating the following tips into your travel wardrobe includes greater protection for your valuables, comfort, the ability to pack lighter, and decreased baggage expenses.

What are some of the criteria for functional travel clothing?

  • Durable
  • Quick drying
  • Deep pockets with zippers, velcro, or buttoned closures
  • Hidden pockets
  • Multi-purpose

Durable: It should go without saying that the clothing you invest in should be made well. The material should be of a type that resists wear and doesn't soil easily. It should be strong enough to handle the rigors of the "laundry services" provided in developing nations which may consist of a thourough hand washing on a big rock or scrubbing board.

When purchasing in person, make sure your seams are stitched well - preferably double-stitched. If you're traveling to hot climates where you may sweat...I mean'll want to make sure your material doesn't leave you with those awful yellow sweat rings in the armpits.

Quick drying: Depending upon your travel destination, you may or may not have access to the types of laundry service you're used to at home. A good alternative is to carry a small bar of laundry soap and wash the day's items in a sink, bucket or washtub each night. I've found that by doing that I can travel lighter and always have clean clothes.
