A dress is the ultimate uniform for travel. Dresses are the do-it-all piece. Pair with sneakers and grab your backpack for a day of exploring, then swap them out for heels and a red lipstick to be Tapas ready. Add a blazer and the look is immediately polished then change up to a denim or leather jacket draped over your shoulders for effortless casual style.
Dresses provide freedom of movement and the ease of versatility without the extra time spent back-and-forth to the hotel to change. The best travel dress will provide this and more. Washable (Hotel sink anyone?), anti-pilling, and COOLING for those stressful airport sprints, humid climates and all-round travel comfort. This is exactly why we named our dress, the Go-To Dress for women on the go.
Editors, and more importantly, customers are recognizing the Go-To Dress as a must-have travel essential. Where are you going this Summer?

An 11/10 Dress - Functional, Elegant, and Comfortable
I'm a big fan of the Perfect Tee and wanted an easy travel dress in the same fabric. This fits the bill and looks fantastic on. It keeps you cool, even if you are rushing around. I love the on-seam pockets--very handy for placing a transit card or phone as you are going through train stations and airports and unnoticeable when you zip them close. I found the dress stretched a tiny bit around my hips after a few hours of sitting down, which I liked, but it didn't lose shape. It smelled fresh as a daisy after a day of high stress meetings, hot conference rooms, and lugging my stuff around the Underground and Eurostar. I wear a size 22 and am 5'4": the 2X fits me like it fits the model. The hemline sits at my knees when I'm standing and comes up to 2-3 inches above my knee when sitting, so totally work appropriate but not dowdy. I originally bought the 3X but eventually sized down to a 2X for a slimmer fit (after consulting with the See Rose Go team--Thanks, Erin and Yi!). You can also wear it with the zipper in the back for a different look!
This dress is remarkable! I love it so much, that one was not enough for me. I own both colors. The fabric is thick, with just enough stretch. Every detail is so thoughtful, from the rose gold hardware, to the ruched back. I’m a 5’1” and petite. The cut of the dress fits my hourglass size 20 perfectly. The hem hits me right above the knee. I could write for days about how perfect this dress is!
Wore it 4 times in one week!
I love this dress sooooooo much! It is in constant rotation in my wardrobe and I am so glad I have it in both colors. I paired it with a moto jacket, black tights and black boots making it a perfect fall look. In addition to the supreme quality, I love that it did not ride up at all. A lot of dresses I buy are fine until a wear them with tights then they ride up over my bum! Not cute. My Go To Dress somehow manages to hug my curves and be super comfortable and lose fitting at the same time. It’s magic I tell you!
