Norma Kamali Convertible Midi Dress

Norma Kamali Midi Dress


This dramatic style goes a step away from the traditional convertible travel dress. We love the asymmetrical length and think it’s one that can work on both petite and taller women alike. While on the pricier side, its high-quality stretch jersey and impeccable draping will ensure you look like a star no matter how you wear it.

Encircled Chrysalis Cardi

Encircled Scarf, Dress and Cardigan


Every woman loves a circle scarf for travel. They’re convenient and versatile. Plus, they add a little flavor to a basic outfit and can also provide warmth from the cold or protection from the sun if needed.

Now, imagine a circle scarf that also transforms into a dress with the push of a button? Well, in the case of Encircled’s Chrysalis Cardi, it transforms by the snap of a button!

How does this unique convertible clothing work? The Cardi is a tube-like fabric that conceals clever buttons around the rim that allow you to use it as a scarf, a convertible wrap dress, and a cardigan, too.

In their description, they claim it can transform into eight unique items. But guess what? I found even MORE ways to wear the Chrysalis Cardi!

Helene Clarkson Sabi Reversible Dress

Helene Clarkson Reversible Dress


One of the most popular questions readers ask us on Travel Fashion Girl is: “Where can I find stylish yet practical reversible clothing for travel?” My response: Helene Clarkson.

The Sabi travel dress is particularly special because it’s reversible, and you don’t need room to change the look. Turn it around and tie a knot at the back of your neck for a different style. Two for the price of one – bonus!

And, because it’s a “reversible” clothing item that is not double-sided – you don’t have to worry about adding unnecessary bulk to your luggage. Packing light made easy.

Where to wear: Toronto, Portland, Stockholm
