The jury is still out on whether you should roll your clothes or lay them flat, but packing versatile fashions that can be worn multiple ways is the one packing hack that seasoned travelers always seem to agree on. While there are tons of multipurpose pieces to choose from — like lightweight dresses and four-in-one sneakers — we always recommend bringing along a stylish sweater that can easily be dressed up or down.
If you are still in search of your perfect topper, don’t fret! Nordstrom shoppers have deemed the Halogen Long Linen Blend Cardigan the ultimate travel sweater. The chic long cardigan is incredibly lightweight, can be folded up easily, and will look good layered with practically everything else packed in your suitcase.
Not only will this cute piece help keep you warm and cozy on chilly flights but it can easily transition from early morning walking tours to late-night dinners. What’s more? The duster sweater is made from a breathable linen-blend fabric that is incredibly soft.
With details like that it should be no surprise that Nordstrom customers can’t stop raving about the cozy cardigan that has over 990 glowing reviews. One shopper wrote, “This sweater is lightweight and so comfortable. Perfect for travel (throw it in your purse and go) and provides coverage without being too hot. I bought two patterns as it’s a great staple piece.”
“Quite possibly one of the most versatile and comfortable sweaters I’ve ever owned. Nice fit and quality. It is perfect for warm-weather travel, when indoor air conditioning is chilly in the day, and in the evenings are chilly when dining alfresco. It fits well if layering under a raincoat. And it goes with everything in my suitcase. I would order this again, and again, and again,” said another.
The lightweight sweater comes in two easy-to-match colors and is available in both petite and regular sizes. While most customers say it fit as expected, a few caution that it runs large and recommend sizing down if you are in-between sizes.
Whether you plan on purchasing it for an upcoming trip or want to wear it every day this fall, this lightweight duster is definitely a smart buy. And the fact that it’s less than $70? Even better.
