I am always on the quest for great travel wear: clothes that are comfortable, don’t wrinkle, look nice, and have travel-ready features. My latest find: the Toad&Co Dakotah travel tunic.
If you’re not familiar with Toad&Co, they are one of my favorite brands for women’s travel clothes, because so many of their offerings are organic, on-trend, and multi-purpose.
The Dakotah Travel Tunic is a long-sleeved, oversized tunic that works perfectly with leggings or tights. It has a generous length in the back, so you can do the whole leggings thing without ‘revealing’ too much or looking like you should be at the gym.
I love wearing this tunic on the plane, just so I can be wearing my favorite leggings, too.
You get a full button placket, the long back yoke as I mentioned, which has rusching to give it some style, and a curved cut so you don’t feel like you’re in a shirt dress.
My favorite feature, however, is the on-seam zippered hand pockets, which are invisible but perfect for storing small items, like a passport or folded travel documents.
The blend is polyester and wool, and the shirt has a nice weight to it. It’s not airy or lightweight by any means; it’s definitely substantial for spring weather.
Pick up the travel tunic on sale right now at Toad&Co for under $60, a great price for a piece that will work for both travel days and on-site touring, museum hopping, and dinners out. It comes in deep navy (a soft denim color) and red. You can also find it on Amazon for a few bucks less.
I’m combining this review with the Sanuk Isobel flat, which is a perfect travel shoe for spring and summer, and pairs great with leggings or skinny jeans and the tunic. I have a pair in black, but the Isobel comes in a variety of colors, from bright magenta to earth tones.
This understated, soft canvas slip-on flat has simple accent stitching on the side and a molded rubber outsole. It’s a great shoe for the plane because it has an antimicrobial additive in the footbed to reduce odor-causing bacteria, and like most Sanuks, you get the yoga mat feature.
In the case of the Isobel, it’s in the heel pod, not the whole footbed. I actually wish it were in the whole shoe, but you still get a nice squish when you walk, giving you some comfort on days requiring you to be on your feet.
You can wear the Isobel with no-show socks if you like, but I usually wear it without any, with the aforementioned leggings.
Pick them up on Amazon on sale right now for as low as $32, and round out your travel wardrobe!
