It's travel time of year again! In the last month we have had many people come in to pick up some clothing for various destinations around the world.
Why Bamboo for Travel?
Bamboo is the ultimate travel material. Like cashmere, it's thermally regulating meaning it keeps you 2% cooler in the summer than other materials, as well as being cozy when you need it! It also doesn't need any ironing ( just hang up your clothes and the wrinkles fall away), or much washing as it is naturally anti-microbial, and it has built in UV protection. The fact that bamboo is also one of the most sustainable fabrics in the world is just a bonus!
Why Movement For Travel?
If you are reading this post then you know that our mission statement is: less not more. Our clothing is meant to work together modularly to create many different styles out of a few pieces of clothing. You can take just a few pieces of Movement on a trip, and get many days worth of looks.
Our Best Looks For Your Vacation
Below are a few of our travel-tested outfit suggestions for seasons hot weather or mid-winter vacationing.
1) The Hannah Skirt and Shrug
The Hannah Skirt is fully reversible to the teal side, can be worn as a skirt or a dress and is shown here as a strapless dress with the black shrug over it. Ideal for beach or black tie! Here it is paired with the T3 Sonoka tank, and can be worn off the shoulder, as a cowl neck or upside down as a top. Pair it with a pair of black leggings (P4 the simple tight), and add boots and be cozy in colder weather.
2)The Vicky V in bamboo slub, and the Jacado Dress
Our Jacado Dress is fantastic for travel. It's reversible back to front for a more casual look, or a night on the town. It's paired here perfectly with a light, slightly cropped long sleeve top that falls beautifully. This top works equally well with a pair of flip flops as a beach coverup. Bamboo slub is very light and works well as an extra pair of sleeves on an air plane, or protection from the sun. If you want something a little warmer on top, you can always pair this with the Rael Sweatshirt which has the same loose crop appeal.
3) Stephanie Tee with Sonia Wrap
Not your average T, we've been told the Stephanie tee is the perfect top. It's reversible back to front for a v-to-scoop neck look, and has a longer body for the perfect fit over leggings or skirts. Everyone of these T-shirts has a matching or complimentary coloured Sonia Wrap, giving it a uniform dressy look, or a pop of colour as you wish. Our Sonia wrap is a Movement Staple with so many ways to wear it!
4) Pia Pencil and Rael Sweatshirt
Want to be so comfortable you can sleep in your clothes? Our other mandate is COMFORT. We believe it's possible to look stylish at NO added expense, and this outfit is classic Movement in that regard. Our Pia Pencil skirt can be worn so many ways: pulled up for a high waisted look, or rolled down, or even pulled up into a little strapless number. Our Rael sweatshirt has been a big hit. Made out of our new bamboo fleece, it's so soft and cozy, but loose and cool...it's the perfect little top.
5) Every piece is designed to go together for endless combinations
The mix and match outfits here are perfect for travel. Take any piece from any person and match it with what one of the others are wearing for endless options. With Movement it is possible to be sustainable and comfortable, while looking super classy, on trend, and fashionable in any country in the world.
Our clothing is really season-less with it's ability to layer up or layer down. One of our customers is literally going from the Antarctic to the Amazon, and another one is going from Zurich to Peru. That's what makes Movement so great for travel.
