Whoever told you to pack clothes for every season should be sacked as your travel adviser, as every traveler knows one of the most effective way to packing light is through investing in versatile clothing. But editing down your wardrobe when packing for travel can be tricky – you don’t want to lug too much around, though you don’t want to pack too lightly in case you missed something important. Versatile travel clothing. Best Versatile travel clothes for women. 

Enter multi-purpose clothes. Pull up 10 of the top articles from Google on tips for packing light, and from independent travel blogs to Forbes, they all have one thing in common. The word “versatile”. So it shouldn’t then come as a shock that the secret to packing light is versatility. It’s all about getting creative with your clothing so you can have fun with it and wear it more than once.

I mean, why travel with a scarf when you can travel with a scarf which has built-in hidden zip pockets to hold and carry your essentials? Why try and stuff your suitcase with 10 pairs of shoes when one pair of interchangeable sandals will give you shoes for every occasion? Or, in the case of the Versalette, why travel with a shirt, a skirt, a dress, a scarf, & clothes for some serious partying when you can travel with one garment which covers it all?

That’s right – I’ve found the most versatile piece of clothing for women who travel; the Versalette by Seamly.co. It’s one piece with over 30 ways to wear it, and even better, sustainably produced from surplus fabric (excess from knitting mills and factories), knitted and sewn entirely in the USA.

In hanger form, the Versalette is essentially a plain, square piece of fabric which you can step through. Though the brilliance in it’s design comes down to a series of drawstrings and hidden sleeves which allow you to turn a dress into a skirt, a shirt into a scarf, and a scarf into a cardigan. Want to create a casual look with a sleeveless shirt? You can do it with the Versalette. What about a halterneck dress for a night out? You can create that too.

Created and designed by a serious traveler herself, this is the ultimate garment in travel friendly women’s wear. I’ve genuinely never come across a product with this many potential wears, and how it’s accessorized and paired can turn it into a COMPLETELY different garment, every time, every season, every year.

You can wash and dry it no problems, you’ll just want to tie off your top and bottom drawstrings before you put it in the washer. That way you avoid the potential of losing your draw strings inside your Versalette.

So whoever tells you that traveling with more clothes will save you doing laundry is giving you travel advice you should not be listening to, because when it comes to packing light, it’s all about sourcing versatile clothing.

Take it from the girl who wore 5kg of clothes onto a flight from Prague to Milan to avoid paying EasyJet overweight bag penalties (there’s a video)…for a traveler, versatile clothing like the Versalette is answer to all of your packing woes. Click to enlarge photo for 30 ways to wear the Versalette:
