Recently, the designer-to-the-stars, whose luxurious atelier we featured a few months back, was spotted walking the streets of Paris in dainty, girl-next-door outfits. We couldn't help but ooh and aah at every travel photo she posted on Instagram. In an interview with Metro.Style, the designer revealed that she flew to France for a campaign shoot on her upcoming RTW collection. She also celebrated her anniversary with her long time beau Lester Yao—they're already in the City of Love, after all!
How To Prepare For Your Travel #OOTDs, According To A Designer!
While you can always hire a stylist to prepare your travel outfits for you—just like what Julia Barretto did for her Mexico, Cuba, and Peru vacation—another practical choice is to plan your outfits all by yourself.
For Patricia Santos, the first step in preparing for your travel wardrobe is to do your research. "Always check the weather and know your itinerary, so you can plan your outfits accordingly," quipped the designer. "As much as I like to look stylish, I also want to be comfortable and not feel out of place."
The jet-setter also admits that she isn't a fan of packing light, making sure she has every thing she needs in creating a style statement. "I make sure I bring bags and shoes that I can mix and match. If I'm traveling for 10 days, I would usually pack for 6 days, and would buy outfits [for the remaining days]. It's always nice to get a little something for yourself whenever you travel—it's one of the best excuses [to shop]!"

"Just decided to hop on a train to one of the happiest cities on earth!" captioned the designer on Instagram. Patricia revealed that she and her partner spontaneously took a trip to Amsterdam! She wore an oversized Yves Saint Laurent sweater and a micro skirt. So as not to reveal too much skin, she also donned knee-high boots. It's all about balance!
