Picking out the right accessories can seem just as difficult as choosing what to pack for a European vacation. You need to factor in what will look great with what outfit, and ensure that everything is versatile enough to compliment every look, not just work with one particular piece. Stressing out just thinking about it? Well hold it right there, because your style doesn’t have to be compromised, and neither does the space (or weight) of your suitcase. We've picked out 7 must pack accessories to make your travel looks complete...
Gold Statement Earrings
Rather than packing a pair of boring studs, bring a pair of gold statement earrings instead. You can style them to dress up the most casual look and they’ll kick your fashion game up a notch, and turn heads while strutting down the Champs-Élysées.
A watch just might be the most important accessory to bring on your travels. Not only is it a fashionable accessory, but a functional one to boot. When you have a watch, you can always make sure you’re on time to catch the next tube to Piccadilly Circus in London, or know how much time you have to hit a gelato shop before your tour of the Colosseum in Rome. Oh it’s a tough life, the life of a European traveler…
Burgundy Shoulder Bag
Burgundy goes with just about every color (except bright red), so you’ll definitely look stylish and blend in with the fashionable locals walking around Montmartre, or checking out the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Black Shoulder Bag
A girl needs options, so pack a black bag too. Make sure it’s just the right size to bring all the essentials like your wallet, passport, lipstick and lip balm, portable phone charger, and camera.
Sometimes it gets chilly in parts of Europe, both day and night. Having a light scarf handy is great to keep in your bag at all times to keep yourself warm while exploring the many sites of the Emerald Isle. Plus it can double as a little blanket for days when you find yourself traveling in between cities.
Protect your eyes on super sunny days, especially when sunbathing in Greece. Stylish sunglasses are also perfect for hiding your sleep deprived eyes from all that funky jetlag you may experience. Hey, it happens to the best of us.
A Statement Bracelet
The only other piece of jewelry you really need is a brilliant bracelet. A bracelet can really make the most casual/plain ensemble look just a touch more fabulous.
