In our new Coordinated Travel Around the World series we will be focusing on the fashion part of our travels rather than the locations and activities. As part of this series, I will also be offering tips that might be useful for planning outfits in travel or even just family portraits. It is no secret that I am a huge color coordinating fan and as many of you have already noticed, it is something I really like to do when we travel. I feel it helps compliment the photo and the cohesive look of our family as well. It wasn’t always accepted (mainly by my husband), but after about 10 years of doing it, I finally have him succumbing to my color coordinating obsession!
Fashion Travel Tip: While planning our outfits I like to consider the places were we will be wearing them. In certain occasions I pick colors that compliment the landscape and will allow us to blend into the background harmoniously. At other times we prefer colors that are completely opposite to the locations, allowing us to stand out and be more widely noticed. So what general rule of thumb allows me to pick one over the other? When the landmark is subtle in color but captivating in sight, we tend to wear neautral colors that will allow your eye to focus on the backdrop first and then us (an example would be our day in Machu Picchu). Vibrant and busy settings require more intense and loud colors that will make it easier to see us clearly over a hectic scene behind us; such as when we visited the colorful and vibrant Plaza Mayor in Lima.
