My little sister described this dress perfectly when she called it, “a great travel dress.” It really is. The stretchy fabric makes for a nice and tight fold in a suitcase yet leaves absolutely no wrinkles when I go to pull it out of the bag. It’s also got a great print which is such a nice departure from the usual all black that I’m used to packing for trips. The touch of color makes it versatile without being boring. The key is just getting the rest of your packing essentials right. I took a look through The Dreslyn (which, by the way, I’m pretty sure has the best online selection of K. Jacques) and found some pieces that definitely fit the bill: things like a great blazer (this one would work, too) and a leather jacket – either of which would pair perfectly with this dress. I also think traveling with the right accessories – a cozy scarf, a pair of shoes that will pair with everything else you’ve packed, and a classic clutch – makes a world of difference.
