The key to successful packing is a pared-down wardrobe with pieces that are easy to care for, easy to wear, and go with just about everything in your suitcase. As parents, our suitcase space is already maxed out, so finding one-and-done outfits that take up less space than multiple pieces, is always a plus.

From shirt dresses to maxis, our list of the best includes pieces for all seasons, made for layering, and for dressing up or down as circumstances require. There’s even a couple dresses that make breastfeeding on the go a breeze on this list. Best of all? They’re all under $50 — so you can fill your suitcase for your next trip without breaking the bank.

Linen Button-Front Dress

This ethically made belted linen dress is so chic and versatile with a midi length and a button front. It’s a great year-round option in an array of climates because the fabrication is breathable and regulates heat. The buttons make it breastfeeding-friendly and it’s made from 100-percent European flax, which requires less resources to grow and is a more sustainable option. Huge bonus: It has pockets to stash all your essentials (or your kids’ many collected “treasures”) for travel.

Amazon Essentials Waisted Maxi Dress



This affordable dress comes in 19 colors and patterns — so it wouldn’t hurt to pick up a couple in, say, versatile black plus notice-me yellow or flirty floral. The stretchy empire waist makes this dress last from pregnancy to postpartum and beyond. And the flattering draping allows it to transition in a cinch from day to night.

Organic Cotton Weekend T-Shirt Dress

This lightweight T-shirt dress from a Meghan Markle-approved brand is as classic as they come — it goes from the beach to the street in a snap.

And it’s made of 100-percent organic cotton. It’s easy to dress up or dress down and most importantly, to toss in the washing machine.
