15 wrinkle-defying dresses that’ll make summer travel *so* much easier

Posted on

Nothing ruins a vacation high more than opening your suitcase and realizing your getaway outfits are unfathomably wrinkled. Yes, your hotel likely has an iron and travel steamers are a thing—though it’s one more item sure to weigh down your carry-on. But A) that’s tedious, and B) wrinkle-free fabrics are an easier solution for side-stepping the issue altogether.

“On sultry summer days or when you have to pack some versatile, easy, wrinkle-free options, a knit fit-and-flare dress will always keep its shape,” says Heather Shimokawa, vice president for fashion direction at Bloomingdale’s. For more breathability, consider a looser weave or crochet style.

“When you have to pack some versatile, easy, wrinkle-free options, a knit fit-and-flare dress will always keep its shape.”

Wrinkles are inevitable in swishier fabrics like silk and jersey, but Shimokawa has a tip: “Steer clear of solids in silks and instead opt for some texture or a darker ground print.”

“On extra humid days, I love a breezy, tiered or textured fabric like cotton eyelet or voile,” Shimokawa adds—a solution for those uninterested in clingier fabrics in sweltering heat.

Ahead, 15 dresses to pack for summer travel. Because your vacation time should be spent unwinding, exploring, and soaking up some sun.
