Style on Wheels: How To Pack For A Road Trip

Nothing says long weekend like getting out of town. Gearing up for road trips to least known and least visited places is something, that every man with itchy feet swears by. Planning a vacation to escape the city doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank. Whether it’s a long drive in search of idyllic beaches or a getaway to a dreamy hill station, we’ve got you covered on everything stylish with Instagram-worthy and adventure-ready ensembles!

Bare Basics

  • What’s in your backpack? It doesn’t matter how many statement pieces you carry, it’s always the bare basics that do the trick. Travelling light can be done in style.
  • Easy pieces like classic Henley t-shirts, chinos or five pocket jeans, make for great travel essentials owing to their versatility.
  • Slip-ons are your perfect travelling companions given their super comfy nature.

 The travel Junkie

  • Keep it comfortable and practical with a pair of cargo pants. Its multiple pockets are perfect for storing your essentials, from cell phones, Swiss knives to car keys.
  • A bomber jacket offers a unique combination of functionality and elevation.
  • Opt for a printed pullover and high top sneakers for an ultimate travel junkie getup.

Spruced up

  • Remember to dress sharp by default.
  • You don’t have to travel in a tuxedo but if your trip calls for a work related stopover, a classic button down shirt in micro patterns or plaids will have you looking impeccably spruced up.
  • Keep it stylish with a pair of five pocket jeans and Oxfords for a laid back formal look.


  • Heading off to a coastal city? Sought after muscle tees teamed with a pair of stylish Bermuda shorts, are great for a game of volleyball or for lounging on the beach.
  • Skinny fit chino shorts are high on style and aesthetics when it comes to exploring the city.
  • A well fitted baseball cap and a pair of trainers are just what you need for the sandy shores.

Hauling an oversized suitcase for an adventurous road trip can be real drag. Refer to our uber-stylish packing checklist when hitting the road, for a fun and hassle-free getaway. Don’t forget your wheels, your wallet, or your mates!
