These Clothing Brands Want to Change the Way You Travel

Say goodbye to wrinkles and overpacking.

By Jessen O’Brien

Do you dread figuring out what to wear on vacation? These brands are using technical fabrics, capsule thinking, and clever design choices to reimagine travel clothing—and make packing a breeze.

For the Minimalist Traveler: A Day

A Day’s chic travel collection can be summed up in three words: technical, seasonless, and sustainable. Made from fabrics that offer wearers a little something extra—such as UV protection or thermo-regulation—each piece is designed to last and be worn year-round. Pieces such as the That’s A Wrap Top are made to be worn multiple ways, so that you fit all you need in a carry-on, while the Throw & Roll Leggings are stretchy enough for a cycling tour but smart enough to wear out for dinner.

For the Business Traveler: M.M. LaFleur

All of M.M. LaFleur’s clothing is designed with a single mission: taking the work out of dressing for work. And now, the brand’s Up, Up & Away Collection brings that same philosophy to business travel with functional and fashionable clothing that’s made to withstand everything you and your suitcase can throw at it. Take the Packable Suit, a machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant garment you can toss into a little drawstring bag. As a bonus, many of these items work just as well when you’re off-duty.

For the Luxe Traveler: Anatomie

Whether you’re heading out on a cruise or a safari, Anatomie seeks to make your life a little more seamless with its collections of lightweight, wrinkle-resistant pieces. Items such as the Ariele Lace Bomber Jacket let you maintain your personal style while being practical enough to bring along as you crisscross the globe. The jacket is made from a breathable lace designed not to snag, so you don’t have to worry about keeping it intact.
