It can be hard to find travel clothing that transitions well from summer to fall, and who wants to buy a new wardrobe for every season? White Sierra, a brand I’ve always appreciated for their affordability, has done a good job with their skirts and pants this year, with two offerings in particular that I’ve found are transitioning nicely from peak summer to fall travel. White Sierra fall travel clothing picks:
White Sierra Dailey Duty Skirt:
A solid (or print) choice for travel days, the Dailey Duty Skirt is 95% bamboo and 5% spandex, which means it’s both soft and stretchy. It doesn’t wrinkle, and looks good with everything from a tee to a sweater or cardigan. Pair it with tights in late fall or spring, and wear with sandals in summer. I took the Dailey Duty on multiple summer trips (it rolls very nicely in carry-on bags) and have it packed at this very moment for an early fall trip to South Dakota’s Black Hills, where it will serve me well for casual nights out.
The Dailey Duty has a 19 inch length, which means the hem hits me right at the knee (I’m 5′ 4″). The waist is a roll-top, which makes it very comfortable during travel days, and there’s a very small coin/stash pocket on the inside. It comes in multiple colors and a few print designs in XS-XL. Pick it up on Amazon for under $40 or look for it on Campmor or REI.
Sierra Point roll up pant:
This pant is such a deal! It’s 100% water-repellent, made of woven nylon, and converts to capri pants with its adjustable inseam. It’s rated at SPF 30, and quick-dry, and features comfy back elastic for a forgiving waistline. There are two back pockets with reverse entry hook-and-loop closure (to deter pickpockets) and comes in three colors: bark (brown), caviar (a deep green), and stone (off-white). The bark color is most travel-versatile for me.
These pants went with me on two road trips this summer, with itineraries filled with general outdoor activities ranging from day hikes to mountain biking and site touring. They performed well for multiple use, ready for anything I threw at them. I almost always wore them in capri style. This fall, they’ll work well as travel pants. They’re fairly thin, so I don’t see them as four-season pants, but will do well for me in North America until at least November. The pant comes in Small through X-Large. Right now, it’s is discounted to only $35 on the White Sierra site, or can be found for even less on Amazon, CampMor, and REI.
