To save money on travel expenses, you may be considering driving to your destination instead of flying. If your drive will only be a couple of hours or so, what you wear doesn’t have to be any more difficult than making sure it’s something that is comfortable for you to wear, and is appropriate for the weather and temperature you’re driving in.
But if you’re traveling a long distance over several hours, and will be crossing into a different climate, such as warmer or cooler weather, you may want to think about your travel attire a little longer. You’ll want to start with clothing appropriate for the weather in the area you’re leaving from. Is it hot or cold? Is it raining or snowing? Is it sunny? Then, determine what the temperature will be like when you make it to your final destination. Will it be colder or warmer than your starting destination? Will it be raining or snowing when you arrive? Will it be very windy? These are all weather and climate factors you should take into consideration when picking out your travel attire.
Once you know if there will be a big shift in climate from the time you leave to the time you arrive at your final destination, you’ll be able to choose appropriate travel attire for your long car ride. Start with a comfortable outfit that is climate-appropriate for the area you’re leaving from. If you’re in a warm climate, you’ll probably want to wear shorts, a t-shirt, and sneakers, and bring warmer clothes to change into. If you’re leaving from an area that’s cold, and possibly has snow, then you’ll want to wear jeans or pants, a long-sleeve shirt, and a winter coat. Maybe even a couple of layers of warm clothing to ensure you stay warm in your car.
As you travel, stop periodically along the way to change into more appropriate attire for the weather you’ll be approaching.
