Attention all fashion-forward travelers and wanderlust enthusiasts! We have an important fashion PSA for you! Turns out, packing white clothing for your adventures is a big no-no according to the fabulous solo backpacker, Claire Sturzaker. And trust us, she knows what she’s talking about – with 20 years of globetrotting experience and 40 countries under her belt, her fashion advice is worth its weight in gold (and definitely not dusty brown stains)!

You see, white clothing has a diabolical tendency to get visibly dirty while traveling. As Sturzaker so eloquently puts it, “once I’ve worn it a few times, it gets dusty and dirty and it turns a really horrible brown color.” Yikes! We bet you don’t want to look like a walking, talking dirt magnet, do you?

But fear not, fellow fashionistas, Sturzaker has the solution! Her packing philosophy revolves around comfort and color – she sticks to clothing that’s both cozy and vibrant. So forget about the whites and embrace the rainbow! It’s time to ditch the pale hues and rock those bold, statement-making outfits.

Now, we can almost hear your trendy brains ticking – “But what about keeping my fabulous clothes clean on the road?” Don’t worry, Sturzaker has that covered too. Picture this: laundry sheets that look like paper but are actually magical soap for your clothes. They’re compact, smell heavenly, and give your backpack a delightful fragrance. Who knew cleanliness could be this stylish?

But wait, there’s more! Sturzaker’s got some incredible tips for handwashing your clothes like a pro. She recommends squeezing out as much excess water as possible, rolling the wet items inside a towel, and twisting with all your might to dry those babies up. It’s like a fitness workout with laundry gains – talk about multitasking!

And if you think that ironing is a necessary evil, Sturzaker is here to debunk that myth once and for all. “I never iron anything. I think that’s ridiculous — especially when I’m traveling,” she declares. So say goodbye to creased outfits and hello to effortless style. Embrace those natural kinks and wrinkles, darling, because you have better things to do than to wrestle with an ironing board.

But white clothing is not the only fashion nugget Sturzaker drops. She also never travels without a water bottle with a built-in filter. Not only does it save her money, but it also allows her to drink safely from any fresh water source. Talk about a travel accessory that’s both practical and fashion-forward!

So, if you’re craving more of Sturzaker’s genius packing tips, whether you’re going on a road trip or need some carry-on essentials, head on over to her blog, Tales of a Backpacker. Trust us, you won’t want to miss out on these fabulous and life-changing fashion insights.

Remember, my stylish comrades, fashion is everywhere, even on the road less traveled. So pack smart, embrace vibrant colors, and leave the whites behind – unless you want to look like a dusty brown disaster. Happy travels, and may your fashion adventures be as bold and brilliant as you are!
