The Denim Traveler

Categories Self

Denim is most probably one of the oldest fabrics in fashion. It has proven through the years that it is here to stay, a classic example of fashion repeating itself. I am an avid lover of denim. Who can blame me, growing up with three brothers (thank God), denim has always been a wardrobe staple.

We find that having a pair of jeans at hand during our travels comes in handy (no pun intended). When you go camping, denim, When you go for a game drive, denim, When you’re at the beach, denim. You get where I’m going with this, right? So, we decided to share a travel fashion piece, featuring, you guessed it, denim. Without further ado..












P.S. Type of travel should dictate the type of denim one carries; for long trips, opt for lightweight skinny jeans OR pack only one comfortable pair of jeans which you could easily accessorize to give a different ‘look’.

How do you accessorize & pair up your denims when on the road? We’d love to know in the comments below! Do also tag us on any interesting Denim #OOTDs/flatlays πŸ™‚

  1. Denim is my all time favourite – whether that be travelling or otherwise. Its so versatile, dress it down, dress it up – my favourite accessories – thongs and a singlet.

  2. Nothing beats a good pair of jeans, although I rarely bring them for travel – they take up too much room, don’t breathe, don’t dry easily, and typically aren’t suited for the type of travel I’m up to. But I still have my favorite pair to take on my less rugged travels πŸ™‚

    1. That’s an interesting point you raise Meg, the type of travel should dictate the type of clothes one should carry. Thanks for the tip, if we happen to have more rugged travels, we’ll reconsider our choice of outfits πŸ™‚

  3. I don’t usually bring a pair of jeans when I travel cause I find they take too much space (and add a lot of weight) but I do always make sure to bring some lightweight skinny jeans. They’re so versatile and make a great item for dressing up at night!

    1. That’s a great traveling hack Lydia, come to think of it, lightweight skinny jeans would be perfect for traveling. We’ll definitely make that addition in our next post. Thanks!

  4. A good pair of jeans is always wonderful for the road. I like darker denim so I can wear it for several days (sssh). I like to pair my jeans with neutral shirts and colorful accessories. The accessories make me feel like I have a new outfit everyday!

  5. I can’t tell you the last time I’ve worn a pair of jeans haha! I just can’t get comfortable in them. But, dang, you made these outfits look HOT. Maybe I’ll have to sacrifice comfort for style on my next trip πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you very much Erica! What we find interesting is the fact that a good pair of jeans can double up as a casual and professional look.

  6. I always bring one pair of jeans for when I want to feel normal. Since I’m not used to high temperatures I usually find it too hot to wear them but like putting them on in the evening when I get back to my apartment.

    1. That can be the case Cliodhna, you may find them a bit uncomfortable when its too hot, but usually come in handy when temperatures drop in the evening πŸ™‚

  7. I usually only bring one pair of jeans (if any at all) when I travel. They are a classic choice, but like a couple of others said they can be heavy and a bit inconvenient on the road. But if I’m hitting a winter destination then they are a MUST!f

    1. We totally agree Francesca! They may be a bit inconvenient especially when one has to be on the road for a long time. Lighter clothing would work best in such conditions.

  8. I like to take jeans with me depending on the trip. I don’t have anywhere near as much denim as you have. I’m more comfortable wearing hiking pants than jeans for most travel.
