The best travel clothes fit your lifestyle. And when you’re packing light and require clothes that can work for you in a variety of scenarios, you need pieces that are comfortable, perform well, and look good. The more I travel, the more I’m able to pare down what I pack, and multifunctional pieces are essential.


One of my current favorite travel dresses is the Title Nine Deep Pockets Dress.


I’m not as much a dress person as I am a caftan person, but despite my love for floating around in my caftans, I’ve found them not really helpful once I’m active. Lounge dress, yes. The Deep Pockets Dress is made with Fresh Terry, a blend of 52 percent polyester, 43 percent lyocell, and 5 percent spandex. The terry fabric makes this dress a little thicker, but optimal for spring/fall wear, and even summer in places that don’t get oppressively hot.


The sweatshirt-like fabric keeps you warm and wicks away sweat, so you don’t get chilly after an activity like hiking. Toss it in the wash on delicate and dry on low, and you can wear it again and again at home and on the road.


The dress has a relaxed fit, making it comfortable whether you’re hanging out, walking around town, hitting the trail, or need to cover up at the beach or pool. If a relaxed fit isn’t for you, consider choosing a size smaller.


The deep pockets are excellent to warm your hands, or hide essentials like money, cards, and keys. You can even tuck your phone into the pockets, and a hidden mesh phone pocket keeps it from bouncing around too much.


The Deep Pockets Dress comes in one color, black, with “sandpiper” print, and lists for $99 on the Title Nine site.
