On this week’s Travel Fashion Talk on Facebook Live, I discuss my travel capsule wardrobe must-haves that are versatile, chic, and timeless. Bonus: these essentials allow me to travel carry-on only too! Watch the video to learn how to incorporate these pieces into your everyday or travel wardrobe.
Products Mentioned in This Week’s Travel Fashion Talk
J.Crew 365 Stretch Tencel T-shirt | Sizes XXXS-3XL Plus
J. Crew 365 Stretch T-Shirt
This awesome essential came from a reader recommended post on the best t-shirts. I love, love it! The tee’s shape is feminine and soft, super washable, and can be layered under a sweater, cardigan, blazer, jeans or joggers, and paired with sneakers or wedges to dress up a bit.
As usual, happy that J. Crew offers this shirt in inclusive sizing and the range of colors is on par—apparently, I can’t stop raving about this find!
Michael Stars Drape Neck Jersey Top
Michael Stars Drape Jersey Top
This staple by Michael Stars is one-size-fits-all and has a lovely draped neck, which adds a bit of polish to any bottoms I match it with. One thing to note, the armholes hang a bit lower, so you could pair with a camisole or a bralette.
Given that, it feels SO comfortable, almost like I’m wearing PJs! Get more travel capsule wardrobe ideas here!
Anatomie Skyler Travel Pant
I’ve had the Skyler pants for quite a while, often traveling with two base colors (black and gray), and I still maintain these are the best travel pants out there (despite the price tag—TFG readers do get a discount!). They’re soft, comfortable, easily packable, and stretchy. Read my Anatomie Skyler pants review to see why I’m obsessed with them!
J. Crew Tippi Merino Wool Sweater | Sizes XXXS-3XL Plus and Petite XXS-L
J. Crew Tippi Sweater
I definitely talk about the J. Crew Tippi sweater in nearly every Facebook Live but this piece literally comes with me everywhere. Made from 100% merino wool, it’s extremely lightweight (packable) and regulates body temperature so I stay warm but also never overheat because it wicks away moisture. I am constantly stoked that it’s offered in inclusive sizing (XXXS-3XL Plus)! Read our complete review and watch the video on the J. Crew Tippi sweater!
Leith Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress
Leith Ruched Body-Con Dress
My final capsule wardrobe staple is the Leith body-con dress which is soft, yet has some structure and chic detail in the ruching. It’s also a breathable polyester/cotton blend and can be worn so many ways (with leggings, tights, layered with sweaters or cardigans, or even belted), not to mention the shoe options you can match with it (ankle boots, wedges, flip-flops). Get more tips on how to wear a versatile dress in many ways!

Hi Alex, I used your packing cubes that I got on the Black Friday sale (thank you). By using them I was able to bring so many outfits in my Delsey Paris Carry On to Costa Rica for a week. I used the Michael Stars drape too as well. It was perfect. I prefer the Lululemon On the Fly pants as they are super comfortable and have a stretchy waistband to allow for those sneaky pounds that creep up on vacation. Both the standard length and the crop version are awesome for me.
I wasn’t a fan of the Tory Burch ballet flats. They ended up hurting my feet so I will be returning those. Aero soles and Skechers seem to fit my feet better.
Thanks for all the suggestions. I am on a quest to travel carry on only. So far so good with your suggestions.
Hi Marlaine, thank you so much for all your support with our CR packing cubes, we really appreciate it! ? So pleased you love the Michael Stars top as well!!! Thank you for sharing your feedback of these items with us. Happy travels! ❤️
