As travels continues to pick up now that the peak of the pandemic is seemingly behind us, some of us might need a refresher on just what to bring with us while packing for a trip. Travel dresses are a great option but it can be tricky to know which dress is the right option. A lot depends on the weather, the type of travel, and just how formal you will need to be. While there are countless options, here are some awesome options to choose from.
Polo Ralph Lauren Cotton Mesh Polo Dress
This one is the best sporty option, while still looking classy and refined. The dress is a bit form fitting and can run short, depending on your height, so keep that in mind. Since it’s Ralph Lauren, you know that this dress with the iconic Polo symbol won’t ever go out of style. It’s a great vacation option because it’s made of mesh cotton, which makes it very breathable. It costs $128 on the Ralph Lauren website.
Zara Satin Effect Cut Out Dress
This classy yet still affordable dress gives an elegant twist to the cut out dress. The midi dress is made of a light material that makes it great for summer travel and to locations with warm temperatures. One thing to keep in mind is that for anyone with a larger bust, the dress does not offer much support, so you might have to wear it with a bra. The dress costs $60 at Zara.
L’Agence Cameron Belted Shirt Dress
This elegant and stylish dress is perfect as a dress, a coverup, and anything in between. With the tie belt you can cinch your waist in, as this dress is flattering on just about everyone. The side slits make it edgy and creates lovely movement. It comes in several colors including neutrals and Baltic blue. It’s available for $465 at Bloomingdale’s.
Rixo Sorrento Tiered Maxi Dress
This beautiful dress is the ultimate summer maxi dress that is totally wearable, light, and floaty and is perfect for your next summertime trip. While it’s made of cotton with bright colors, they’re still quite subtle so the dress isn’t too loud. The one drawback is that it’s dry-clean only. You can get it at Net-A-Porter for $390.
Everlane Oversized Mariner Dress
There’s nothing quite like an oversized T-shirt dress, and Everlane sure knows how to make ’em. This oversized Mariner dress is super comfortable, versatile, and best of all, it’s sustainable. The best part of this dress is that it is perfect for nearly all destinations and trip styles. If it’s cold, you can layer it on with boots and a trench, and if it’s summer, throw it on with a pair of sandals. Get it at Everlane for $65.
