Travel dresses are sometimes so specialized that it’s hard to just travel with one. You have the beach cover-up, the dinner dress, the daytime sun dress, and even more options. When you’re trying to pack extremely light, one dress is what you want—and finding one dress that covers everything isn’t always easy.
I’m thankful for Title Nine’s Adventurista Dress, because it solves that exact problem.
The shirt-dress style’s straight fit accommodates a variety of body types and doesn’t bind or chafe, which makes it comfortable for nearly all your travel activities from sitting on the plane to hiking, lounging, walking around town, and heading out to dinner. The Nimblene fabric (86-percent poly and 14-percent spandex) is lightweight enough to wear on trips to hot, humid destinations. It also has a UPF 50 rating.
The Adventurista Dress has roll-tab sleeves, so you can leave them long or hike them up, depending on your needs. The 1/4-zip neckline also gives you the option to adjust as you prefer. Two zippered side seam pockets are secure for money, keys, and cards—and while I know that Lindy West says she doesn’t like dresses with pockets in her new book, The Witches Are Coming (get it anyway, it’s great), I live for them.
You can wear the dress as a tunic over leggings, as a beach cover-up, or as a regular dress—it all works. And the fabric is wrinkle-free, so you don’t have to work about looking like a mess when you wear it over and over.
The Adventurista Dress comes in Stonehenge, which is a dark blue and white print, and lists for $99 on the Title Nine site. Some past colors (Shibori and Solid Aruba) are also available at sale prices right now, for as long as supplies last.
