Basic Travel Wardrobe – Travelsmith

Crinkle Summer Dress

If you are looking to put together a basic travel wardrobe, we have a few recommendations for you.

Travelsmith provides a great array of travel clothing.  We tried and recommend the following:

Crinkle Summer Dress

This elegant dress is cool and comfortable, two must-haves for warm-weather travel.  We especially liked the flattering, feminine lines.  Travelsmith takes the white dress to a whole new level for travel with this beauty.

Tank Travel Dress

This all-black travel dress is a must-have for every travel wardrobe.  This travel dress is comfortable and versatile.  You can dress it up, dress it down, or just wear it!

Perfect Fit Pants

Perfect Fit Three-Pocket Pants or Perfect Fit Capris

These pants live up to their name.  They really do give the perfect fit. Perfect Fit Pants and Capris are both made with a patented TravelFit waistband.  The band stretches as needed, ensuring extra comfort, especially after meals!  These pants also have hidden pockets for storing your valuable clandestinely.  We also liked that they are lined, which gives them an extra touch of quality and finesse.  We recommend these pants and capris for your travel wardrobe.  And why not also get a second pair for your everyday wear at work or home?  We highly recommend them.

With these basics, just add a few scarves and you are ready to go!

Happy traveling!

Sweater-Weather Warmth This Fall With Travelsmith

Marvelous Merino Solid Cardigan

If you are looking for a “just right” warmth cardigan or jacket for Fall, here’s what to look for:

Each season brings a change of weather and a change of wardrobe.  Wearing wool or down-filled garments for the Fall and Winter months will keep you snuggly warm.

When traveling, we recommend taking a button-down or zip-up outerlayer in all of your travels, especially in the Fall and Winter.

We recently found two essential pieces that make the perfect accompaniment to your travels:

The Women’s Marvelous Merino Solid Cardigan combines warm yet lightweight classic sophistication with smart style to make a winning combination.  When we tested it, we loved the combination of style, sophistication, and sweater-weather warmth.  This cardigan has a significant advantage over the average cardigan: it is lightweight yet wooly warm.  You will surely want to take the Women’s Marvelous Merino Solid Cardigan with you everywhere.

Puffer Down Jacket

The Down Puffer Jacket (Pearl) is also carried by Travelsmith.  This jacket is one of the best down jackets we have seen.  It provides high-quality insulated warmth, waterproof protection, and is far more slimming and stylish than most down jackets available today.  One of the jacket’s best attributes: it is made of ultra-soft feathers, so when you squish it down to pack it, it easily regains its shape when you unpack it!  This is a truly great and rare quality in down jackets!

Jamevar Cardigan by Travelsmith

Travelsmith also makes some lightweight cardigans for those who are traveling to less-cold places this season.  We tested the Jamevar Cardigan, pictured above.  This cardigan is vibrant and ultra-lightweight.  It feels like you are wearing a cardigan-shaped scarf, as it is made of the same material many scarves are made of: rayon.  It packs easily and gives a cheery message of the international joie de vivre!

The Jamevar Cardigan is a lightweight outer layer garment which makes a colorful addition to any travel wardrobe.

No Iron Needed Travel Attire!

Fiesta Crinkle Skirt

When traveling, the last thing any of us want to do is iron!  If we must, we must.  But wouldn’t you love to find a way to avoid ironing while traveling?

The way we see it, you have two options: wear “no wrinkle” clothing or wear “crinkle” clothing.  Then, you’ll win either way.

We set out to find some crinkle travel clothing recommendations.  Here’s what we found:

Travelsmith makes a very good line of crinkle clothing.  We tested a few pieces.  Our favorite?

Travelsmith’s Crinkle Fiesta Skirt

This beautiful skirt comes in two colors/styles: the Crinkle Fiesta Skirt and the Ribbon Crinkle Fiesta Skirt.  Both skirts fit in a matching drawstring pouch for easy packing and transport.  These travel skirts are unrivaled in their beauty and ease of use.  They make great travel skirts.  And best of all?  No iron needed.

Travelsmith Fiesta Skirts Rating: 5 Stars!  Best!

Lightweight Crinkle Jacket

Lightweight Crinkle Shell

Travelsmith also makes an accompanying line of crinkle shirts and jackets.  We tried the Lightweight Crinkle Jacket and the Lightweight Crinkle Shell.    These pieces will be useful anywhere you go.  They come in a variety of colors.

They are very functional.  What we liked best: they will go with anything and no iron needed!

Travelsmith Lightweight Collection Rating: 3 Stars!  Good!
