Travelers, on the other hand, blend effortlessly into the crowd with their sleek accessories and stylish-yet-understated gear. If you need a little help making the transition from the tourist to traveler look, start with these rules…
Toss the Crocs: Yes, Crocs are comfortable, but we’re pretty sure they anger the fashion Gods and are an eye-sore to the people you meet along your voyage. The late Alexander McQueen did the world a favor by designing the Low Women’s Cutman Satin shoe for Puma.
The sport-fashion sneaker’s high-traction outsole and dual closure allow for a snug fit and keep you stable on most surfaces, making it perfect for trips requiring lots of street-walking through rough terrain.
Ladies, if you don’t have the patience to deal with both shoe laces and hook-and-loop fasteners, you might prefer the Puma Espera II Ballerina flats. Guys, check out the Puma Stance – a chic leather number that can work in the nightclubs just as easily as the streets.
Drop the Backpack: Just because the term is “backpacking through (insert continent name here),” doesn’t mean you should actually walk around with an ugly house on your back. Of course, not all backpacks are created equal.
The Osprey Meridien Wheeled Convertible Pack is an attractive option with lots of space and a detachable day-pack. For shorter trips and lighter loads, check out www.JohnandMaryBags.com. The classic carry-all bags will convince you it’s time for your next trip.
Of course, they’re more appealing to female travelers, so may we suggest the Kenneth Cole New York Roma Satchel for gentlemen looking to boost their rank on the “sexy” scale.
Stay organized in style: Having your luggage, camera or cell phone go bye-bye due to your own personal negligence or the cunning thievery of another is never cute and no one is more vulnerable than the novice traveler.
Avoid such catastrophe with the nioTM Bluetooth security tag. The clever device uses Bluetooth technology to connect to a plethora of items including keys and laptops, sounding an alarm when the tagged device moves away from the nioTM.
Maintain Your Million-Dollar Smile for $19.95: If you had a dollar for every time you forgot to travel with your toothbrush and/or toothpaste, you could probably buy yourself the OHSO Travel toothbrush – an ingenious device that self-dispenses toothpaste and looks fierce doing it. There’s nothing wrong with looking fabulous while you brush your teeth.
Hydrate fashionably: If you want to feel good about who you are and how you look while you hydrate, then KorOne is the water bottle for you. Not only are these chic bottles eco-friendly, durable and free of toxic chemicals, but $5 goes to charities supporting water causes for each bottle sold. Order yours at www.korwater.com.
