Flashpacking, one of the best ways to travel, essentially it is backpacking whilst looking good, two of my favorite things to do. If you are planning on doing some time on the road this year then flashpacking is the way to go, you get the best of the traveling experiences without having to suffer gritty hostels and budget transportation. The best part about flashpacking is that you can take all of your luxuries with you, if you are looking to up your game this year and indulge in some flashpacking then here are some tips to help you look great on the road.
If you want to look good for your trip then you are going to need to have a strong bag game, ditch the ugly backpack and look instead for some glamorous travel bags, I recently bought one from Farbod Barsum, they have some seriously hot pieces and not only can I fit everything I need in it, I also bought myself a matching clutch bag for day to day stuff, glamorous and functional, music to my ears, as was the travel duffle and traveling case.
Make-Up and Accessories
I’ve done the budget backpacking thing and what I loathed most was having to ditch my make-up and accessories in favor of ‘practical’ items. Not any more, if you’re going flashpacking then you can go crazy with both, when it comes to accessories I advise you to pick Earth colors, they go with everything and it means that you can leave some space in the bag for other items.
Even with flashpacking you don’t want to be taking the World away with you, the last thing you need is to be traveling around with a collection of bags like Mariah Carey. Shoes do pose a problem as they are big and chunky, my advice would be to take 2 pairs of flats or pumps and just one pair of heels. I have a black strappy pair that fits most of my outfits, any more than one pair of heels and you are in for a packing nightmare!
