After dealing with “arctic” air and ridiculously low temperatures, it’s hard to imagine being someplace warm and it’s even harder packing for it. I for one have been living in layers from my fuzzy fleece-lined parka to my fuzzy fleece-lined boots. Peeling those off and pulling out just the right clothes to pack for that island get-away can be a challenge. Making sure they’re ethical and eco-friendly pieces is even harder.
I’m here to share our most versatile, easy to pack travel favorites by ME for Women and Men so everyone can enjoy their vacay and not stress about what to bring. So open up that carry-on bag and let’s get packing!
For the Flight
Both have lined pockets that add a clean, finished detail so you don’t look as if you gave up on life when boarding your plane. You’ll look like the refined, experienced traveler who knows these joggers will keep you warm enough on the ride to the airport and cool enough when you land in paradise.
Most importantly, they’re made from our Cotton/Modal and they’re the perfect weight for any weather…
Don’t forget to fold ’em up and wear them on the way back home.
Out & About
Ah, that perfect tee that takes you from the gate to dinner upon your arrival and thru the week when you want to “dress up” is not only a perfect fit, but Earth-friendly too.
Women, try our Nuovo Top (above) with a hint of print on the inside and a flattering hi-low cut.
I love to balance a loose shirt like the Nuovo above with our fitted Tasca Skirt made from the same beautiful fabric. Like our tops, we’ve added a lined kangaroo pocket that’s perfect for holding your room key, a few bills and a credit card.
For Men we introduce the Marco Short. Like our joggers, these are looser, casual and so comfy you may forget you showered… but don’t worry, the cut is clean, the pockets are lined and you’ll look as handsome as that lifeguard!
Women, if you’re not the skirt type, take a peek at our Bagliore Pant. This fun, printed, versatile crop is cut just above the ankle for those under 5′ and a tad above for those who are taller. These are a bit reminiscent of those retro palazzos, but we updated them by lining the pockets and keeping the flair in check.
I love to pair these with our Forte Tank in a solid (try a French half-tuck in front) and a flat, strappy sandal. What’s best is these crops are wrinkle-resistant and travel incredibly well. No iron needed!
Women, take a couple pairs of our Picolli Shorts. These are perfect for layering over that swim suit and even better for sleeping in. Throw that Forte Tank over the top for added cover. You can even wear this entire outfit to sleep
Men, those Marco Shorts are great pool cover-ups too.
Versatility is what we do and taking one item for multi-use makes packing lighter and easier.
Just keep these clothes out of the pool. Chlorine is no friend to any fabric unless it’s a swim suit designed for swimming.
Underneath It All
Don’t forget your underwear! Women, a printed Padded Sporty Bra looks amazing under all our tops and shows just enough print under our Forte Tanks. Our micro-fibre bras wick moisture away from your skin, so when the temps rise you stay cool and dry. Lord forbid your panties don’t match your bras! Make sure to pick up our Hip Hipster, Cheeky Bikini or Comfort Thong made sans-elastic, they’re perfect for traveling. Every MAJAMAS EARTH panty has an organic cotton gusset making them breathable and a healthy alternative to other brands.
Men can wear our Rocko Boxer Brief made from Organic Cotton or Cotton/Modal. They have a hidden contrast print in the fly making them even more special and they’re so amazingly comfortable you’ll think you’ve gone commando!
Cover-ups for Cool Days & Nights
All good things… well, you know… so make sure you can wear the same one home when you have to travel back to the colder weather.
I love our Hawthorne Hoodie with a printed lined hood and thumb holes to keep your hands warm. Casual enough for vacation and made with enough detail to make you feel well dressed on the plane ride home.
Men, stay tuned… we’re working on yours!
So, take ME along on your next vacation. Not only do our fabrics have a lower impact on the planet but they adjust to those temperature fluctuations we all experience when we travel. Best of all they pack easily. Bonus? Unlike less ethically made clothes, ME knows you’ll wear these styles long into summer, fall and beyond so even after that paradise vacation has faded from your skin and your memory, you’ll be basking in your beautiful, sustainable style forever.
