Packing for a warm-weather trip during the dead of winter is the best. Gone will be the days of heavy, bulky layers and instead, we welcome the no-fuss, lightweight frocks and sandals into our suitcases.
When the climate allows, a casual dress and jacket is go-to uniform for travel. You can move freely, and once you arrive, you won’t need to spend extra time at your hotel changing into a cute outfit.
Of course, not all dresses are created equal. We don’t need to tell you that a skin-tight, bodycon number is not really the way to go when it comes to traveling in comfort. Opt for a semi-loose or loose silhouette that you can easily accessorize with a belt for a more structured look.
In terms of length, it all depends on what you’re comfortable with, but we’d look for something that either hits right below the knee or is longer — you can never go wrong with a maxi dress in a bold floral print. And if you plan to wear it on the plane, a casual dress in cotton or rayon would feel best, because these fabrics allow your skin to breathe and control moisture.
