Travel Style Tips from Fab Everyday’s Ramona Cruz-Peters

Today’s travel style tips were guest written by Ramona Cruz-Peters, style blogger and founder of lifestyle website Fab Everyday.


I don’t know about you, but I’m the kind of person who loves planning my travel style before a trip. In the past that usually meant collecting several location, climate, or event-specific pieces that would look fabulous during the trip, but not see much use afterwards. For example, the outfits I planned for a Kenyan safari and a trip to France were perfect for those trips, but were hardly (if ever) worn again.

When I discovered Armoire this summer, I quickly saw how this clothing rental model was perfect for planning travel style. Not only is it a far more sustainable fashion choice (I always exchange the pieces post-trip for whatever my wardrobe needs next.), but it also gives me the option to choose from an unlimited closet of high-quality and well-fitting pieces without hunting at multiple stores. I’ve since taken Armoire to both Puerto Vallarta and Turks and Caicos, and will be taking pieces from my next case to Houston for a business trip and gala. Planning my travel wardrobe is now as simple as making a few clicks to filter my picks for the occasion (dresses, casual, formal, etc.), then waiting for an uber quick Armoire shipment!

Today I’m sharing my must-pack Armoire pieces to keep your travel style practical but on point.

Travel Day

Even if you’re traveling to a warm climate this holiday season, make sure to have a warm and comfortable outfit ready for cold planes or long driving days. I like to keep my travel day looks simple and neutral, ensuring I can reuse the items later in the trip. I’ll include a few standout accessories, leopard-print being my personal favorite, to keep my travel style interesting.

Exploring the City

While I do love to wear dresses for most occasions, I always pack a pair of capris on a trip when I want to look pulled together but know I will be walking a lot. The thigh-chafing can be real during a long day of walking wearing a dress – I know my fellow curvy girls feel me on this one! Pair your capris with a cute and colorful blouse and some wedges or flats if you’ll be doing a lot of walking.

Day Trip to Dinner

Wrap dresses are one of my travel style staples! They are flattering, flowy, and your bikini top can peak out from underneath while still being restaurant-appropriate.

Tip: If you do want to wear a dress for a busy walking day, I recommend wearing shapewear shorts underneath. Not just for the slimming – they have saved my poor inner thighs on many occasions!

Beach Day

Whether you’re touring museums, picnicking at a park, or hitting the beach, a comfortable, well-fitting sundress will work for any and every occasion. Find one with stretchy and breathable fabric for those vacation days where you don’t know where the day will take you. Picking a versatile, layerable piece ensures you’ll always be covered, no matter what you do!

A Night on the Town

I often stretch my comfort zone with my travel style. When better to do it than on vacation! I like to pack a piece that makes me channel my inner Lizzo and show off my assets. This maxi was practical enough to wear from day to evening, long enough to still be classy, but the cut made me feel good as hell.

Special Occassion

I always pack a piece appropriate for a party or nice dinner, even if I’m not sure I need it. Opt for something that is still comfortable, but that can easily be dressed up with nicer jewelry or pumps. This day-to-night dress could go from hotel brunch to late-night dancing with some simply accessories swaps.

Shoes & Accessories

Think strategically about your accessories before just tossing all your shoes in a bag! Because they take up the most luggage space, I plan shoes, bags, and hats that work with multiple outfits and are walking-friendly. I like to lay out each outfit before packing to make sure I have pairs of shoes and jewelry to go with each and then try to stretch them to go with a few different looks. I also always travel with a light scarf or cardigan in my bag that I can wrap around my shoulders if I get cold.

Armoire is so much more than just everyday or special event fashion – it makes travel style a breeze!
