Get the Leipzig Look

I’ve mentioned in previous blogs about studying abroad this summer in Leipzig, Germany. The preparation involved in leaving home is just as extensive as I’d imagined, and unfortunately, my wardrobe will always remain at the top of my packing concerns.

Here I am last year, decked out in America gear. Talk about looking like a tourist! Hey, it happens.

While I can’t wait to explore outside the United States, I’ve been warned about being an American sticking out like a sore thumb.

I don’t want to lose my identity when I travel overseas, but as suggested, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to attempt blending in with the Germans. And for a college girl traveling – I can’t lie – the luggage I bring is vital.

Professors and others with international experience advised against wearing bright colors, white tennis shoes or very showy clothing. I trust their judgment, but I  thought I’d investigate further myself.

Various packing list websites proved to be quite useful, but I needed more visuals.

LOOKBOOK is an online platform for everyday fashionistas to share, inspire and discover new shoppable styles and photography. While I’m not sure if I’ll ever contribute to the site, it provided me with the best look at the German glam!
