Travel Wardrobe Planning with Instagram

I’ve been thinking about what clothes to pack for an upcoming trip to a new destination (I’m a girl, okay?).

I’m not a fashionista by any means, but I do try to “clean up” when I leave the house.

Practically speaking, I’d like to pack clothes appropriate to the weather I’ll encounter.

Culturally, I try to respect the local standards of attire. I’ll still stand out as an outsider (that’s unavoidable), but I figure the less I stick out the better – for safety and other reasons. That’s particularly true in certain parts of the world where immodest attire can lead to worse consequences than just unwanted stares.

So…how to find up-to-date information on what people wear in a particular city?

I came across a genius suggestion on the TripAdvisor forum.

For real-time, on-the-ground “intell” on what people wear, someone suggested browsing Instagram under the hashtag for your destination.

For example, if traveling to Copenhagen, search the tag #copenhagen and you instantly get an up-to-the-minute feed of photos labeled as such.

Clever, no?
