I recently had a chance to check out two of her multi-way items: the Wanderlust Wrap and the Endless. Keep reading for your exclusive discount and find out more about how they work. I guarantee you’ll want to add them to your travel wardrobe!
Convertible Clothing for Travel: Diane Kroe
The Wanderlust Wrap was a wonderful surprise! It’s convertible clothing for travel done right. It’s also the newest item in Diane Kroe’s collection.
Truthfully, I don’t think the pictures online do the wrap justice. Not only was it an item I could wear while traveling it’s also something I’d confidently wear at home, too. It is so versatile and offers travelers plenty of options for different looks from a single item.
Versatility is key to a capsule wardrobe. Learn more in my guide!
Why It’s Worth It

Lightweight and soft, the wrap boats a luxe knit hybrid fabric with dropped shoulders, batwing sleeves, and an invisible zipper in the back.
It’s available in a variety of colors and prints. I tried out the boho-rust – a red bohemian Southwestern-inspired print. Love it! (And I’m totally lusting for the grey-leopard print, too. Perfect for my favorite color story!)
The image above shows the Wanderlust Wrap as a cardigan but there are three other ways to style it: sweater, long sleeve top, or skirt-like sarong. Even if I didn’t use all four styling options the cardigan and top make the garment worth getting.
It will easily fit inside your packing cubes to maximize the space in your bag.
Wear it as a Warm Layer
(worn with Naot sandals)
You can style the Wanderlust Wrap in two ways to create a light but warm layer: wear it loosely as a front-opened cardigan as shown above or drape it, fold it, and button it to create a sweater as shown below.
I first tried on the cardigan style, which is super easy to wear and can be paired over anything. Use it as part of your flight travel outfit or sightseeing look by adding leggings, a plain top, comfy sandals and some earrings. I like this comfortable yet stylish plane look. Don’t forget a cute backpack and carryon suitcase!
I’ve also worn the wrap over a white slip dress and sandals or a basic top and denim as shown here. I love how the print makes an outfit pop especially if you’re working with a majority of neutrals in your travel wardrobe.
Secret: I’m wearing the slip dress tucked into my shorts so it doubles up as a tank top!
As the temperature has occasionally dropped to a “cool” 65F-70F here in Playa del Carmen, we’ve been feeling the winter and a light but warm cardigan like this is just what you need.
Wear it as a Top
Aside from acting as a light layer in moderate or transitional weather, you can also transform the wrap into a top. I liked the open cardi style but I LOVED it as a top!
Having the full color and print really brought my outfit to another level. This style option can be dressed up or down as needed. Pair it with jeans and brown boots or even leather shorts and flats the way I have here.
Notice the “neutral” snake-print ballet flats? Now, that’s my kind of a neutral!
Wear the Wanderlust Wrap on it’s own when the weather is warm and add a long sleeve top underneath for cooler climates. The hidden zipper is incredibly clever. It’s rare to see convertible clothing for travel that’s so well designed.
The Wanderlust Wrap is brand new and was just revealed this weekend! It retails for $125 in Canada, which is about $95 USD right now – currently a great exchange rate for the dollar! TFG readers get 10% off until March 6, 2016. Use the code WANDERLUST to claim your discount! Shop now!
While the Wanderlust Wrap just joined me in time for Playa del Carmen’s “winter” months, I’ve been wearing the Endless since November.
In fact, it’s one of the things I’ve worn the most since moving here. Why? It’s airy, comfortable, and casual yet glam at the same time.
It’s also one of Diane Kroe’s most popular pieces! It’s convertible clothing for travel you can wear in various feminine ways. Here are a few of my favorite looks!
(worn with this awesome travel cami)
Appropriate in various destinations, you can use it comfortably on a plane, to go sightseeing during the day, and then dress it up at night with strappy heels for dinner. The fabric is seriously soft and cozy! You’ll never want to take it off.

You can also adjust the way it sits on your hips to change the angle of the hem. Another simple outfit transformation!
I like matching it with a basic black or white top like the one shown in the picture to complement the vibrant print. The endless is also available in a wide array of colors and prints and comes in three sizes: XS/S, M/L, and L/XL.
Off the Shoulder Top
What can I say? An off-the-shoulder top always makes me feel sexy. This has been my go-to look for boat cruises, rooftop parties, and sunset drinks here in Playa. Not what you usually expect from convertible clothing for travel.
Wear it as a tunic with leggings for a casual look, add a mini skirt or plain bodycon dress for a nighttime outfit, or combine it with shorts and strappy sandals for dressy daytime style the way I’ve shown above.
You can also wear it alone as a cover-up while laying in your beach bed or poolside cabana. Pull the “sleeve” under your arm for a sleeveless tube-top dress or tunic.
Seamlessly transition the Endless into a summer top by tying the ends together resulting in a low draped sleeveless halter. Layer a tube top or bandeau underneath for extra coverage or show some skin with a bikini top.
You can pair it with jeans or shorts, worn casually with sandals or dressed up in heels. Alternatively, wear with a mini skirt for a night out dancing. My top pick? The off-the-shoulder style of course!
These are just a few of my favorite looks but you can learn how to wear it even more ways in their video here. It makes a fun versatile travel piece for yourself or you can even give it as a gift!
The Endless retails for $75 in Canada, which is about $55 USD right now – currently a great exchange rate for the dollar! Shop now!

She will respond and always take care of you. She has beautiful prints…very easy travel clothes and fun to find different ways to wear them…So good!
I just ordered one in navy! Hope the size (S/M) works well for me… thanks Alex for sharing this!
Hi Priscilla, thank you so much for your feedback! 🙂
Loving this blog! Thinking about adding a couple of Diane Kroe pieces to my wardrobe – the Wrap Top and either an Endless or a Carry On Cozy. Wondering if anyone who has tried both likes one over the other?
Hi Christina, thank you so much for your feedback! We’ll share your question here so the author of the article can reply. 🙂
Christina – I bought and attempted to return both the Wrap Top and the Carry-On-Cozy. See my other comment for details.
After reading this post, I was dying to try some convertible clothes from Diane Kroe! The Wanderlust was sold out but I bought an Endless in the same vibrant color that Alex was wearing. I ADORE it. I was recently in Victoria, BC and it was a perfectly pretty top that kept the chill off my shoulders. Later in the day when it got hot, I tied it as a halter top. I bring it with me everywhere – on the plane, to work and in the car – I am surprised how often I use it! I’ve since bought a few more pieces from Diane Kroe and have enjoyed the craftsmanship and versatility of them. Thanks for featuring this super-cool clothing line Alex!
Wonderful news Renee! So glad that you tried the product out and that you love it as much as we do! Safe travels!
I love my Endless also. Mine is in the Tahiti print.
I love this convertible clothing. As someone who travels each week for work it has the qualities I love – easy care and can be worn in a number of different ways, as well as being dresses up or down. And, of course, not bulky to pack as I too love minimal luggage. Perfect
I’m glad you like it Jan 🙂 I totally agree!
Love this convertible clothing! Each way it is worn looks totally different, plus add a great pop of color to many outfits on a trip! Love your website!
Thanks Kim yay!
The print of the wrap looks so great! So lovely and colourful 🙂
Thanks Evangeline, it’s become my number one travel item since I got it 🙂
OMG!! this is the perfect wrap!! off to ebay to find one I can afford
Yes I’m so loving it right now! The prices are in Canadian dollars so if you’re in the US, it’s about 30% off 😉
I can already tell this is going to be a great addition to my wardrobe, either home or away!
It has been for me, loving it!
I am loving all of these pieces (especially digging all of the bright colours and fun patterns)! Perfect additions to my travel wardrobe, thanks Alex!
No problem 🙂
Love convertible clothing!
Love these pieces!
me too 😉
The Wanderlust Wrap looks so amazing. Love the pattern you’re wearing. Ufortunately it’s sold out on the website.
It went quickly…but it’s super cute 🙂
I love to travel with convertible, multiple duty clothing items. They take up less room, and are so easy and fun to plan your travel wardrobe with. I’m definitely going to plan on The Wanderlust Wrap as my next travel essential purchase. Thank you for the great tips!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I have 🙂
What a gorgeous print for a wrap! Nice to see colourful travel clothes! Plus those Sabrina Naot sandals look like just what I’ve been looking for! Thanks heaps!
The sandals are AWESOME! Enjoy 🙂
Love the Endless. I can see how it would really help with a limited wardrobe. Beautiful color and pattern!
I love both the Wanderlust Wrap and the Endless on you – the prints are just gorgeous. Being from Australia, I haven’t head of Diane’s convertible travel clothing before but I bet these would be great items to have on my regular travels to Europe.
She has an amazing collection and truly listens to her customer’s needs 🙂
Thanks Alex. This is exactly what I was looking for! My husband and I are excited to embark on our first sail trip through the BVI this May and convertible pieces would be a great way to save space. Your photos helped me see beyond their website photos and experience the beauty and versatility of each piece.
That’s great Mindy! I hope you have an amazing trip 🙂 here are a few more tips for sailing the BVI: https://travelfashiongirl.com/what-to-pack-for-a-sailing-trip-in-the-british-virgin-islands/
Those pieces look great on you. And you are correct- the photos on the website do not to justice to her interesting and versatile clothing.
Thanks Gerri! The Wanderlust Wrap was so not what I expected – in a good way 🙂
Love Diane’s clothing. I’ve collected several pieces over the years. I have a couple of the Endless and managed to pick up the Wanderer at a show before Christmas. She clothing washes and travels so well.
That’s great Micheline! What are your favorite pieces?
Beautiful photos! these pieces look great on you! I would’ve loved theEndless on my Cancun trip!
Thanks Joan! The Endless is perfection here in the Riviera Maya!
I am super bummed this particular print sold out, but I am waiting on a different print to come in the mail in the next week, hopefully in time for my birthday! 🙂
The different prints are so cute! I hope you like it 🙂
