The open roads, the wind in your hair, and your favorite tune playing on loop as you cruise on country roads: that sums up the perfect road trip, isn’t it? Do you know what else can make this journey even more perfect? It’s the outfits you choose for the road to keep you comfy and relaxed.
However, choosing outfits for road trips isn’t as easy as it might seem. It might get pretty confusing to decide between all those shirts, t-shirts, trousers, and denim. You also need to get shoes suitable for a complete look. Keeping this predicament in mind, here are the seven ideas to help you out.
2. Buttoned Down Shirt with Travel Shorts
If it’s a beach vacation, a buttoned-down shirt worn with shorts is a classic combination that you cannot go wrong with. Take a pair of loafers to complete the look, and you’re good to go. This combination is one of the ultimate definitions of casual and relaxed.
You can also choose to wear it with chinos and jeans if you do not plan to hit the beach straight away. Wearing it with denim would be a good idea if you plan to go off-roading. Pack your necessities and put them over the Discovery 2 roof rack as you go on an adventure with your buddies.
3. Casual Shirt with Corduroy Trousers
Corduroy trousers are one of the most underrated trousers, but they can work wonders when worn correctly. The fabric usually gets paired with corduroy suits, but you are not going for a formal look here. So, be the trendsetter and pair it with a casual shirt and sneakers. Even a fabulous pair of sunglasses and a graffiti t-shirt would look great with corduroy trousers.
However, it’s all about the fit with this look, so make sure you have checked that beforehand. And now, let those heads turn in your direction as you step out of the car.
4. A Lightweight Jacket over a T-Shirt
When thinking about what to wear for a road trip, a lightweight jacket might not be on the top of your list, but it needs to be. Think about a situation where you will be driving late into the night, and there might be a nip in the air. You might even be heading to hilly terrain. In all such scenarios, keeping a lightweight jacket near at hand to keep you warm is a good idea.
You can head out wearing the all-time favorite combination of a white t-shirt and blue denim. Let the jacket be buff or brown to complement the t-shirt and denim.

Add personal touches to make the attire stand out more. For instance, wear that bracelet your partner gifted you or an excellent sports watch. In terms of colors, the popular ones are khaki, navy, and white. If you want to go offbeat, you can also try grass green or emerald.
6. Mandarin Shirt and Cropped Trousers
