We’ve ALL been there before. You’re running 10-ish minutes late and need to catch your flight to fill-in-the-blank vacay destination in record time. Before you reach for the velour tracksuits (please, do better), something a little bit more, err, put together is in order. The key to looking polished at the airport gate — without sacrificing comfort, BTW — is to opt for crease-free fabrics (think: Tencel, polyester, and spandex) that can withstand a red-eye.
We’ve done the outfit solving for you: Keep scrolling for four foolproof #OOTDs that are not only ideal for all your remaining summer travels, but they’re also wrinkle-resistant. Can we get an amen?
Whether you’re getting around by a Barbie-pink Vespa or by foot, nothing says Roman holiday like a fit-and-flare halter dress that’s flattering and feminine at the same time. The jersey-spandex blend not only requires zero ironing, but it’ll hold its shape even after several wears. Gear up for a night on the town or stylish snaps by the Trevi Fountain with a set of these pineapple drop earrings and a cheeky denim cross-body bag, finished with these white eyelet espadrilles. Come dusk, add a denim jacket to keep any nippy temps at bay.
Ooh la la! For the City of Light, it doesn’t get any more timeless than a signature khaki trench (this one’s made of luxurious Japanese cotton) that looks instantly chic the moment you slip it on. Team it with relaxed cropped-leg jeans and a stretchy jersey bodysuit. To ward off pickpocketers, we recommend this hands-free fanny pack that’s strewn with the prettiest bougainvillea print. Slip on Veja’s sustainable millennial pink trainers for a decidedly sporty look that will have you mastering the Paris tramway like a local.
Ticket to Sin City, right this way. Bring the dramarama with this red haute shoulder-baring blouse crafted from Japanese tech (AKA, it won’t wrinkle, even in the sweltering heat) that will take you from the airport brewery to the Palms Casino Resort without so much as a wardrobe swap. Enter the 24-hour leggings from Warp + Weft we were talking about. Be prepared to never take these bad boys off — they’re that unstoppable, especially with a pair of Marais’ cult status suede sandals and a wear-everywhere woven straw tote on deck. Lastly, don’t forget a pair of sleek Matrix-worthy shades, ‘cause it’s Vegas, baby.
Ramy Brook Janey Top ($285), Warp + Weft BCN Legging ($89), Skinny Dip Talk to the Palm Choker Necklace ($25), Poppy Lissiman Le Skinny in Black ($125), Parme Marin Tadlak Small Bag ($129), Marais St. Tropez in Lavender ($198)
Whether you’re heading to Ibiza or Palm Beach by way of plane/car/train, an absurd amount of sitting time means arriving in true frumpy fashion. But that’s where these ridiculously comfortable Tencel joggers come in. Not only are they resistant to wrinkles, but helllooo, they drape perfectly. Throw on this li’l ruffled tie-front tank alongside a pair of these extra-cushiony Grecian-inspired leather sandals and a reusable market tote for the ultimate beach day. Oh, and don’t forget a packable straw hat that will protect your peepers and disguise a bad hair day.
