What To Wear When Traveling For Work

What to Wear When Traveling for Work

Most employees already dislike business trips for various reasons, such as having to leave their families or homes. Do not make business trips any more tedious than necessary by forcing employees to wear uncomfortable or stifling formal clothing. Instead, get employees excited about work trips by offering them comfortable and stylish customized work apparel. Keep reading to learn more about what to wear when traveling.

What to Look for When Purchasing Work Wear for Your Staff

Custom work apparel for your traveling employees should make the wearer feel comfortable and look their best. Discomfort during a business trip will leave a worker distracted and weary. Also, a well-dressed employee will be more confident during business meetings, and confident employees are more motivated and likely to deliver results.

When providing employees with what to wear when traveling, prioritize clothing with these features:


Breathable clothing is essential during business trips, especially if the destination is warm. Besides keeping the wearer cool, such clothes minimize itchiness and sweating by facilitating airflow over the skin. Breathable fabrics are also typically soft to prevent chafing. Employees can comfortably wear such clothing throughout the day and stay focused on their trip.


If your employee is visiting a cold destination, provide them with clothing they can layer. Layering is key to staying warm and comfortable when it’s cold, but you can’t layer with just any clothing.

The base layer should be a breathable fabric that prevents sweatiness, and the mid-layer should be insulated clothing that stops body heat from escaping. As for the outer layer, you need a wind and water-resistant jacket that keeps out the elements.

Clear Logo Embroidery

Custom embroidered workwear for traveling employees is a must. Firstly, employees wearing clothing custom embroidered with your brand logo generate free publicity for your brand. The more attractive the customized outfit, the more attention it will grab, leading to more publicity.

Secondly, custom embroidered workwear will make traveling employees easily recognizable as representatives of your company. Lastly, employees dressed in such outfits will remember they are part of a team, leading to continued motivation wherever they go.
