HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT BEST BLACK TRAVEL DRESS

Wherever it is you're traveling to and whatever your style or size, there's a travel dress that's perfect for you. Finding the best black travel dress isn't always easy. It can be time consuming and sometimes stressful to find the right one for you and that's why I've done a review of the best black travel dresses available online!

# of color options

All the dresses on this list are available in black but most come in more than one color. We let you know how many color options are available.

Cost

Cost is almost always a factor in the shopping process. Many of the dresses on this list are similar in price, we'll let you know which ones are a bit pricier.

Fabric

Fabric is super important when selecting the best travel dress. You definitely want a fabric that is wrinkle resistant, breathable and comfortable.

Sizes 

Some of these dresses are one size fits all while others are available in a wide variety of sizes. Check to find out what size options are available for each dress pick!

Picking the perfect black travel dress

No matter where you're from or where you're going, the world is your oyster. So whether you're planning a weekend getaway or an overseas trip, packing for the trip is one thing you can't avoid. For us women, a lightweight black travel dress is one piece of clothing I'd advise you not to overlook. An ideal travel dress must have a breathable fabric, it shouldn't be tight, and it should be wrinkle resistant. A travel dress should be versatile enough for any special occasions that might pop up.

Washable, fits well and comfortable

Traveling can be so much fun but you also have to have contingency plans for when things don't go as planned. Travel issues are exacerbated if you are wearing uncomfortable clothing. That's why it's ideal to wear a casual dress for travel.

Travel dresses aren't body-hugging evening gowns, rather they're lightweight dresses for daytime that can be easily paired and layered. When choosing a travel dress, you'll find that they come in varying styles and shapes although some distinct types prove to be better travel choices than others.

Waistline

In choosing a travel dress, you should make sure to check the waistline. For example, I absolutely can't stand elastic for long periods of time so I make sure that my perfect travel dress is not shaped with elastic. I can't even deal with bras in my life, that's why I only wear adhesive bras. For those who'll be sitting for long periods of time, make sure not to wear a dress that's tight at the waist. It's better to choose  A-line dresses, Empire dresses and drop-waist dresses that either have low or high waistlines or even better, styles that lack waistlines completely.

Hem length

The hem length is an important consideration if you're going to be sitting quite often. When selecting a short dress, be careful not to go too short because although the hem might look great while standing, it'll ride up your thighs when  you sit. The perfect travel dress is one with a hem length either at that knee or slightly beneath it without hindering walking.

Material

A perfect travel dress is one that allows your body breathe underneath. Usually they're made with an airy fabric, often cotton. Cotton is arguably the most breathable and lightweight material and its machine washable.

Another great choice are dresses made with synthetic stretchy fabrics, although they don't feel as soft as cotton. You should stay away from fabrics that need dry cleaning when you're looking out for a travel dress.

Linen would have been a good choice for a travel dress because it's lightweight, but it needs dry cleaning, which may not be convenient on the road.

Layering

Depending on where you're traveling to, weather conditions can change faster than you think. This calls for the need to be able to dress in layers. Meaning you can pair up your travel dress with a simple sweater that'll accent the style and match the color when the weather dips.

Easy-to-pack and fold without wrinkling

Some things you'll most likely consider when you're packing up for travel is the need to pack the right dresses. A travel dress should be easy to fold and pack without wrinkling, so you can get up and go quickly.
