The best travel outfits are comfortable enough to wear on long flights, polished enough for first-class cabins (in case you score that last-minute upgrade), and versatile enough to wear en route to your destination and while you’re there — by the pool, sightseeing, or for whatever you have planned. A piece that meets all of that criteria at an affordable price point would be the ultimate travel garment, and get ready, jet setters, because we found exactly that.

This under-$24 maxi dress is one of the most comfy and versatile travel pieces you can find on Amazon, and it also happens to be the retailer’s best-selling women’s dress at the moment. Shoppers love its stretchy, spandex material, universally-flattering shape, and handy pockets as well as its 27 color and print options. It’s no wonder its racked up over 1,600 five-star reviews.

The flattering maxi dress is the perfect basic to throw in your suitcase and rewear throughout your trip. Wear it with your favorite sweater on your flight, throw it over your swimsuit and use it as a coverup, pair it with your most comfortable shoes for a day of exploring, or style it with jewelry and heels to wear for a casual dinner. When you’re not sure what to wear, this flowy dress is the answer.

Owners love its drape-y shape — claiming it “fits like a dream” — and its subtle slits, which you can wear as is or tie in a knot to really show off your shoes. Its super soft material is also a bit hit among Amazon reviewers. “Love this dress!” one reviewer wrote. “The material is soft [and] the army green is so pretty. I'm definitely buying another.”

“I love this dress!” another chimed in. “It’s a little shorter than other maxis that I own, but the slits on the sides make that not a big deal — I actually like that it shows off my shoes. The fabric is super comfy and stretchy, so I plan to get a lot of wear out of this dress. I highly recommend ordering one!”

The brand also makes another equally popular racerback maxi dress, which comes in 30 colors and prints, and a similar long-sleeve maxi dress, which shoppers say are just as basic and comfortable. Choose the dress that best suits your destination’s climate — or get yourself one of each. For less than $24, they’re all a steal you’ll wear nonstop this spring and summer.
