10. Find Blendable items to wear
It is important find items that can go with anything and go anywhere. If you are going to specific Destination that requires you to dress specific make sure that you have accessories that will help you blend in.

9.Wear shoes that can be your go-to
No what matter your wear, a shoe is suitable to you. As it can dress you UP or down. It wins the heart of the locals, protects from harm as tourist and on TOP of that you look great and feel comfortable.
Bonus: Carry out three different pair of shoes. that can carry you out for any for Event. E.G. Sneakers,boots, Heels ( for those who need a little boost like me)hiker shoes/ flats.
8. Carry Usable Undergarment(This everybody include your body)
Pardon me, if I am getting a lot personable.I know travel is usually all about experimentation. But when it comes to your Undergarments it probably best to go with, usability and common when travel a broad. But if you need to go sensual then carry favourites that you don’t wear often.
Bonus: Carry six of undergarments that can take on go! Add bonus if you are feeling the tonight. Moreover it is always okay to with the basic. E. G. Nude, Black,White, Gray. If you need to go sexy: Red,Pink, Purple , Green, Yellow, and Orange are the way to go.
7. It’s all in the B-A-G
As much the luggage the important as it does carry all the clothes , accessories and the shoes. Its carry-on(s) you need be focused on as it will be the thing that is first check in and get you in and out of trouble .Depending on you situation(I am right),it can awkward going through security,hotel check in / out of why or what and even sometimes how you are carrying your bag.
Bonus: If you like me where you need more then one carry -on . Don’t worry! All you need is a BIG backpack, a small satchel and a wallet to carry and accessorize and no one will literally a thing.( Shh)
6. What BIG/small eyes you have ( Eyewear)
Don’t need glasses to see. No problem! Need the impressive glasses to woo the crowd! I got what you need! It is important to accessorize those beautiful eyes as the can play vital role on who you want be for day, week, month or year!
bONUS : Carry three pairs of eyewear. If you wear contacts I suggest two of your contacts; ordinary and fun in your prescription and carry those sunglass proudly.
5. When they go low, we go high! ( Accessible Bottoms)
SKIRTS, PANTS, SHORTS! Oh my! There is nothing better than be able to wear the most comfortable pair that can make you go from 100 to 0 just like that. As much you don’t need those pair jeans, there will come in handy.
Bonus : All great things come in two! So carry those two pair of jeans you have been trying to get into, thos bell bottoms you have stored in there forever or maybe that summer skirt you have been wait all year to wear!
