Travel Clothing For The Light Packer

By Travel Savvy

It’s nice to be able to head out on vacation with entire week’s worth of clothing in your carry on, without worrying about matching everything once you get there. To make the most of your lighter suitcase, it's important to find packable, streamlined pieces (as in, no bulk) that won’t wrinkle.

Here are four clothing pieces (two for men and two for women) we like to stuff into our suitcases when we need to balance comfort and practicality with looks that slay.


Alexa Lace Panel Pants By Anatomie

I’m a sucker for lace, and these chic wide-leg pants by Anatomie offer practicality and style. The silhouette is super slimming, and elastic waist means you’re always comfortable regardless of how much you indulge. $278


Pashko Ability Pants

Men want comfort, style and versatility in their suitcase, and these Pashko Ability Long Haul Travel Pants offer all three. Reviewers love the discreet zippered pockets and the dirt resistant fabric, which “makes dressing for a flight, a trek or exploring a new city ultra comfortable and smart.”

If you’re the type who likes to bring one pair of pants to last the whole week, this pair just might be the winner. $118.  


Vacay Style 2-Piece Outfit

The creator of the travel clothing brand Vacay Style had the light packer in mind when she launched this line of women’s clothing meant to be mixed and matched with ease. We love this 2 piece dress, featuring a halter top and ruched skirt. Everyone looks good in black, and you can wear the pieces together for a polished look or separately with other items. Wrinkle resistant fabric makes the entire collection a no-brainer. $148


GoLite Men's Re-Play Half Zip

We love the idea behind GoLite’s recycled clothing brand, which is “to innovate and develop new earth-friendly solutions for gear and apparel.” Their tops and bottoms for men and women are developed from “environmentally preferred, recycled and low energy production materials and processes.” This men’s half-zip features a zippered chest pocket and a trim straight fit so that you can still look dashing after a whole day of hiking or sightseeing. There are a ton of other great features too-including the moisture wicking fabric and thumb loops. $68
