Over the years of becoming an avid traveler, traveling so many times, especially in South East Asia, I noticed that some globetrotters love to travel in style and brush aside their comfort. Comfort is key when travelling but in the same time, you have to look good. How do you balance between the two? Here's some tips for you to travel with style yet be comfortable throughout your journey.

Either you're wearing Zara or Louis Vuitton or Uniqlo, make sure the size fits you. Don't compromise your comfort by picking one size smaller or bigger because they run out of stock for your size. Wear a comfy yet fashionable shirt with the right size of jeans, not your little sister’s or your grandma’s jeans. If you're traveling in cold weather please do not forget to bring a cozy-enough cardigan or jacket to keep you warm.

Pro tips : If you want to travel light, get yourself a versatile shirt that can be worn over and over again. Ones that can be layered with cardigan or jacket. Ditch your sweatpants and leggings because even though it is somewhat comfortable, they’re just downright hideous to be worn during your travles.


There's plenty of stylish flats out there. You can take easy-to-slip-on loafers or sneakers into consideration. Girs! If you wanna look more chic , you can slip into ballet flats. It’s cute too. Slippers? They’re big no NO! Neither comfortable nor fashionable. But remember to bring one for usage in your hotel or hostel. You don't want to always wear sneakers 24/7 right?

Pro Tips : if you want to travel in style, be comfortable and travel light, and you don't want to bring too many pair of shoes. So just pick a go-with-everything sneakers that you can match with your outfits.


Some love to bring luggage while traveling because for them it is more stylish and some love to carry backpack because for them, it is easy to carry. Just grab and go. Which one is better? For me, both can be stylish and easy to carry if you know how to pick the right one.

If you ask me to choose between luggage or backpack, personally, I would choose a backpack. It is indeed easiest to carry, and I can just pack everything easily in a flash. I love to travel light, so every time embarking for a new journey, I will make sure that I will pack only necessary things and make sure it doesn't exceed the weight for the cabin limit (when travelling by air).

One of my favorite backpack without a doubt is the one that’s designed in Sweden and using minimalistic concept, making it luxe yet functional, made by Gaston Luga. I am currently using the Forest and Green backpack from Gaston Luga's Calssic Series.

The idea of minimalistic design of the backpack comes from the founder itself. They believe that every backpack is the most optimal companion when discovering the world and it should represent the owner in most elegant way while giving style and comfort.

This stylish backpack comes with Gaston Luga's signature passport pocket at the back of the backpack that can be used for storing important documents such passport or tickets. It’s easy to access and makes it hard for wandering hands to snitch things from you.

This backpack also not just only meant for travel, you can also use for other occasions such school or work because it equipped with inner compartment for 13"-15" laptop. So, I’m planning to use this as a daypack once in a while...for occasions (I’m loving it too much right now).

Pro Tips : Always brings small backpack to be use as daypack while travelling if you're using big backpack.

In addition, for those shipping outside EU (especially for us, in Malaysia) , the 20% of Swedish VAT will be automatically deducted.
