Trust Nigerian style stars, celebrities and influencers to constantly give us vacay goals whenever they take a trip. From their outfits to accessories and even the secret special items that make it to their luggage, a true style star is intentional to the tee and we know the exact items they never travel without.
If you love travelling and do so regularly, you will agree with us that some things are almost always forgotten. However, these style stars have mastered the art of packing for a trip and they never forget the fashionable basics.
Here are the 9 things Nigerian style stars never travel without…
1. A Straw hat
The sun is the main reason why a hat is important on your next trip. Besides offering you some nice shade and making sure your face is not constantly exposed to UV rays, it also makes your outfit look really stylish. Just look at Kaylah.
If you are going to be showing off your skin, then sunscreen should be your best friend. You don’t want to come back from your vacay with sunburns. Yes, melanin girls get sunburns.
3. Beach towel
Your regular towel would do the job
but it wouldn’t be fashionable enough for the Gram. You should invest in a lightweight beach towel to save some space and for obvious style reasons.
4. Designer slides or flip flops
Slides or flip flops may not be a fashion statement, but designer ones would definitely make a statement. While on a trip you sometimes need to let your feet breathe and they breathe better in top style. Wink!
5. Power bank
Can you imagine running out of battery during your trip? No pictures? No videos? This would be the ultimate trip disaster! Avoid this frustrating experience by copping for yourself a decent power bank to give your battery the boost it will most definitely need.
The importance of sunglasses both home and abroad cannot be overemphasized. Invest in a classic style that will protect your eyes and have you looking chic too!
7. Sling bag
When going about town, the sling bag is just ideal. Throw in your power bank, fave lippie, hand sanitizer, money, cards and phone and you are good to go.
8. The favourite lipstick
Finding the perfect lipstick is a daunting task and when we find one that goes with almost everything, there is no way we would want to leave this behind.
9. Hand sanitizer
Since hygiene standards vary among destinations, hand sanitizers can be very handy when you’re on the go and need a quick clean. This is for when water and soap are not readily available. Best to use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (containing at least 60% alcohol) – rub on your hands until they are dry.
