Travelling together as a couple offers the perfect opportunity to explore new destinations, sample foreign cuisines and showcase your shared sense of style.
Whether you’re enjoying a romantic meal together, relaxing on the beach or taking in the sights, travel allows you both to get creative with your fashion choices and opt for outfits that coordinate with one another.
To help you pack the right items of clothing to pair with your partner, we’ve come up with some valuable tips to create a travel wardrobe that reflects your unique style while seamlessly complimenting you as a couple.
Choose a Colour Palette
Dressing as a couple doesn’t mean you have to wear identical outfits or colours. Instead, you can opt for colours that work well together by choosing from the same colour palette.
A colour palette is typically made up of a range of different colours that work well together and offer several options for pairing those colours together. To help you decide what these should be, consider your favourite colours or those that most flatter your complexion. You can also follow these steps:
Choose your neutrals
True neutral colours are considered achromatic and include black, grey and white. When it comes to fashion, warmer neutrals like cream, tan and beige are also included. These colours do not compete for attention with other colours but rather serve as a backdrop for more vibrant and bolder ones.
Add complementary colours
These colours are brighter than neutrals but still slightly muted compared to bright colours. Examples might include evergreen, wine red, sea blue, olive and navy.
Complete with accent colours
Accent colours make an outfit pop, adding visual interest. They do not necessarily have to be the brightest but they should stand out from the rest of the colours. For instance, in a classic navy and white ensemble, a pop of vibrant red can instantly draw attention and create a striking contrast.
Go for Unisex Clothing
Unisex outfits are a great way to match your look and highlight both masculine and feminine aspects of your wardrobe. This is also a trend that has taken off in recent years, thanks in part to social media where couples showcase their coordinated style by donning matching hoodies, sneakers, shirts and other unisex items of clothing.
Whether it's a comfortable pair of matching sweatshirts for an evening stroll, complementary denim jackets to layer up on the flight , or coordinating Dihsan shorts for a day at the beach, unisex clothing is a great way to maximise your style as a couple.
When planning your coordinated travel outfits, don't forget the power of accessories. These small but impactful touches can elevate your outfits, while helping to create a more polished and cohesive look.

Put these tips into practice when packing for your next getaway to ensure you and your partner make a stylish statement wherever your trip takes you.
