Seasoned travellers agree that the best way to travel well is to travel light. A little extra time spent planning what clothing to bring goes a long way towards ensuring a stress-free trip. We recommend trying to hit the sweet spot between a minimal footprint in your suitcase and the maximum impact once you reach your destination. That means packing with an eye towards pieces that mix and match, garments that are multi-functional, as well as looks that can be layered.
Lately, we’ve been super inspired by the ways designers are combining form and function in the travel-wear category. So there’s no better time than the present to do a round-up of convertible clothing for travel:
The sharmbaa Shrug This piece pretty much hits every point on our must-have travel list, because of its versatility. The sharmbaa shrug transforms into a variety of looks including a cover-up, capelette and scarf, making it the definition of a multi-functional travel piece. Use it as an extra layer when it’s cold or as a finishing touch to any outfit. Then, its compact design makes it small enough to stow away in a bag. Wherever you go, the sharmbaa shrug moves with you.
Twelve Ways The name kinda speaks for itself, and it’s the reason we love the Twelve Ways brand. This chic yet simple piece works as a dress, a skirt, a top and more. Its casual and affordable design makes it a great choice for your next beach destination.
Shon Modern We love this fun and funky convertible skirt from Shon Modern. It’s smart design offers drawstrings that allow for a look with ruching, as well as ties inside for adjustable sleeve length. What a great piece for looking downtown chic when visiting the big city.
Mohop Sandals There’s nothing worse than cramming your suitcase with bulky shoes. Problem solved with The Mohop Sandal. It’s one shoe with the possibility of infinite looks. You can customize these sandals by interchanging ribbons and ties. What could be better foreasy, breezy summer travel?
The Jia Collection Double-faced fabric means that each piece from Jia Collection is reversible. We particularly like their line of dresses for their classic lines and sophisticated look. The Jia Collection is perfect for the smart professional looking to head to her next business meeting in style.
