{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} Caravan Diaries - II

Hello beautiful people

Here is the second look of the Caravan diaries editorial . It was so much fun talking about the lesser known Caravan culture of South Africa in the first post of this series. If you missed it, don't forget to click here . This series is a take on the modern traveler who loves to travel the gypsy way, stopping at every beautiful sight ( Just like we did during our shoot in Dullstroom , South Africa ) and soaking in all that the senses can experience  . Dressed in their overused T-shirts /cargo pants/denims you can spot them from a distance , but we at TFMQ would love to share some ideas on how you can be a CHIC backpacker- the gypsy way  !

The modern WANDERER's wardrobe

If you are a backpacker , its likely that you love " messy " and wear whatever you carry in your backpack. I am about to break the myth that a backpacker or a "CARAVAN TRAVELER" cannot be
stylish. The trick is to carry a lot of pieces in thin fabrics to create a variety of combinations instead of one HEAVY DENIM /cargo pants + jumpers and some STATEMENT accessories .
 The statement accessory  : my " Flower hairband "is all it took to create an eccentric yet dressy vibe in this look !


To imitate the wardrobe of a backpacker , I have used a pyjama pant and a semi-formal blazer- both super light-weight and breezy. Also, they were both bought a couple of years ago . The blazer is a gift by Nik which he picked up on his trip to China and the pant is a flea market find.

Now lets come to the star pieces of this look - The embellished net Bralet ( picked in last ZARA sale) and the flower crown hairband ( WOOLWORTHS). Both the bralet and the hairband instantly make this look super chic. There is barely any weight these two would add to the luggage and yet they pack so much punch. Look for embellished or sequinned crop tops which you can use to layer for a trip like this! For accessories, hair accessories are having their moment right now and every high street store is full of choices right from scarf scrunchies, pearl barrettes , embellished hair-pins to oversized hairbands. Take your pick and don't forget to pack them for your next backpack travels !
