The Best Wrinkle-Free Travel Clothes

Jet lag. Flight delays. The crying infant two rows back. None of these setbacks outweigh the magic of getting away, but travel sure can come with some inconveniences. Another pet peeve of travelers everywhere? Wrinkled clothes that send you scrambling for a fix. Ever attempted to “iron” pants with a hair straightener or a steamy shower? Been there. Or spent precious travel time using the hotel ironing equipment when you could be out exploring? Been there, too. There is a better way: choosing items that are specifically designed to resist wrinkles, made from fabric that holds its shape even after its been subject to hours squirming in an airplane seat or days spent balled up in a carry-on. Ahead, we spotlight garments that won’t crumble under pressure. No steamers, irons, or packing wizardry necessary.

The Best Wrinkle-Free Travel Clothes for Women


Best Wrinkle-Free Dress

Reformation Ari Dress.

Ari Dress by Reformation

Synthetic or semi-synthetic fabrics like Tencel, polyester, and Lycra tend to hold their shape better than natural fibers like cotton and linen. Reformation’s Ari dress is mostly made from Tencel lyocell, a type of rayon that’s derived from eucalyptus trees. The result—an eco-friendly dress that feels as soft as cotton, but won’t crinkle. Stretchy, stylish, and comfy, this is the pick that you can sport on long-haul flights without long-term creases.

Best Wrinkle-Free Blouse

Ministry of Supply Juno Blouse.

Juno Blouse by Ministry of Supply

As much as we love the look and feel of silk, its proneness to wrinkling makes it a high-maintenance travel companion. Fortunately, Ministry of Supply’s Juno shirt is an excellent dupe. It’s made out of a polyester that’s devised to imitate silk, but minus the wrinkles and tendency to trap sweat. Bonus: unlike its natural doppelganger, this material is happy to be washed, dried, and ironed.
