The art of packing well and lightly is an acquired skill. It takes years of practice. After countless trips in various climates,  you become quite ruthless in your choices and what makes it into your suitcase. It’s all about packing things that are essential, versatile, and functional. A few pieces that can be worn in various ways, dressing them up with a scarf, statement jewellery, and a bold lip is really the way to go!

Travelling soon and don’t know what to pack? We have curated a list of 10 dress styles that are perfect for travelling! Pick 3 or 4, add a couple of shorts, good travelling shoes and these essentials and you are pretty much done! Scroll on for our top dress styles for travel!

The wrap dress is one of my favourite trends at the moment its design streamlines curves allowing it to flatter all shapes. Pair it was some white sneakers for exploring a new city and take it into the night with a cute pair of black boots.

The ultimate style symbol, the little black dress, or the LBD, is a worthy dress to have when travelling. It can do no wrong and can be paired with almost anything. Perfect for all occasions and seasons.

Another favourite, the off-shoulder dress is a flattering and feminine style! More than halt my dresses are off-shoulder, I love the elegance they bring to every outfit!

SHOP MORE OFF-SHOULDER DRESSES

A light-weight linen dress is perfect for travelling. It folds up small for packing, dries quickly and can be dressed up or worn casually in the days.

Although technically not a dress, I love a playsuit that has a flowy girly style! A frilled un-tailored playsuit allows for extreme comfort, can be worn on more adventurous days whilst still looking super cute!

When you travel frequently you learn to become very efficient, especially when packing! This isn’t for everyone, I think it works because I am short, but a maxi skirt can be very versatile! Grab one with an elastic waist so it can be used as a dress as well, pop on a belt and you have a whole new outfit!

SHOP MORE SKIRT DRESSES

So 90’s. So cute. A pair of overalls is one of the best things you could pack! Perfect for plane trips as they are super comfy. For the colder days chuck under a striped long sleeve.

Someday we'll be old together, with lines all over our faces from a lifetime of smiles 💙 💙 💙 #singingmetolaughter

Another really versatile item. Pack a long shirt that is lightweight and breathable, through over swimmers for a beach day, or tie up the front and pair with denim shorts for a whole new look.
