8 Must-Have Items For Your Semester Abroad

With the fall semester approaching, many of you Fashionistas will be headed to different corners of the world for an unforgettable semester abroad. The opportunity to study abroad is an incredible time to immerse yourself in a new culture and travel. However, being busy and constantly on the move does not mean that you cannot travel in style.

With the help of these 10 items below, your semester abroad will be the experience of a lifetime filled with fun, fashion, and memories.

1. A Journal

Personally, I believe that this is the most important item on this list. In twenty or thirty years, you will not remember the little moments of your travels. You will likely lose some memory of your best semester with incredible friends, food, and fun. Thus, it is crucial to document all the moments of your travels. With a journal, you will be able to look back on your time abroad years from now!

2. Sneakers

Spending time abroad means walking very long distances while sight-seeing. You do not want to be touring places like Rome in pain and with blisters on your feet. A stylish sneaker will keep you comfortable while you’re on the go.

3. An Instant Film Camera

Whether you’re in Paris, London, or Shanghai, you will want to capture the incredible moments and sights of your travels. With a Polaroid camera, you will be able to carry these priceless moments with you forever.`

4. Versatile Pants

While you are roaming the streets of your new home, you will want to achieve a balance between fashion and comfort. With versatile, comfortable, and stylish pants like these, you will be able to comfortably stroll through towns all day long.

5. A Tote

When traveling, it is crucial to always carry a bag that can fit your travel essentials. A large tote can function as a carry-on during your travels and as a functional bag during your days. If you are taking a quick weekend trip, all your clothes could fit in this bag alone. This bag is a must-have for anyone on the go!

6. A Warm and Stylish Coat

If you are going abroad during either the fall or spring semesters, you will undoubtedly need a coat to keep you warm during the colder months (unless you are going to a warm city like Sydney). However, this does not mean that you have to wear a bulky, shapeless coat. Instead, opt for a coat like this that will keep you both stylish and cozy.

7. Sunglasses

No matter the season, a reliable pair of sunglasses is a must! Sunglasses will allow you to see better where you are visiting while allowing you to show some of your personal style.

8. A scratch map

After your unforgettable time abroad, scratch off every place that you visited on this incredible map! Then, once you are done, explore the map to find your next travel destination.
