The Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe for a Trip Around SE Asia

Southeast Asia is a popular travel destination for many and it is easy to see why. There are three major factors to consider when creating the ultimate capsule wardrobe for your trip and these are: heat, whether you need to dress modestly, and what outdoor activities you wish to partake in. If you are visiting temples, modest clothing is required. If you decide you want to trek in Nepal or visit an elephant sanctuary you will need comfortable, appropriate clothing.


When choosing your items below, remember to choose items that can mix and match well together. The style of your clothes depends on where you will visit in Southeast Asia, but whilst you are here you must visit the temples, so maxi dresses are a fashionable but modest choice. Choosing items that work together color-wise is essential for a capsule wardrobe that works well together.

Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are extremely versatile and are an effortless way to style your capsule wardrobe. Maxi dresses are one of the best clothing items when in Southeast Asia, as they are cool, and can be glamorous as well as suitable and comfortable for shopping or venturing out into the hills and mountains around the main cities of Asia. If you are staying in one of the finer hotels, finish your outfit with a shoulder wrap, elegant bag, and a pair of ankle strap heels whilst enjoying the fine foods of Southeast Asia. Whether you are going to be walking long distances, shopping or you are going to check out the luxurious Vertigo Bar in Bangkok or experience the fine Thai cuisine at Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, there is a maxi dress out there for you.


When packing shoes for Southeast Asia, there is no need to go wild. All you need is a pair of heels, a pair of sandals, and some sneakers. Sneakers are a great fashion statement and don’t need to be bland or boring. SSENSE have a range of Gucci sneakers that will finish your ultimate capsule wardrobe. These allow you to travel in style and comfort and with the option of crystal sneakers or vintage sneakers, you can be trendy even in sneakers.

Top and Pants Combo

If you want to switch it up from maxi dresses, having a few staple tops that work well with pants or skirts is a great way to increase the number of outfits in your capsule wardrobe. Loose, floaty blouses go great teamed with a pair of flared pants. Fortunately, flared pants are one of the biggest trends at the moment, so there is a variety to choose from. You can also pair your blouse with a maxi pleated skirt if you prefer. The good thing about flared, loose pants is they are extremely comfortable and are also a trendsetting piece for your capsule wardrobe.  

When choosing your capsule wardrobe for Southeast Asia, ensure your pieces work well together. Don’t forget to find a statement pair of sunglasses to finish off any look.
