Create the perfect vacation capsule wardrobe with Smitten Merino
Top 5 travel items from Smitten Merino
When you are travelling it is imperative to have a wardrobe comprised of lightweight, natural fibre clothing that will wash and dry easily. Smitten Merino’s collections are sustainably made in Tasmania, spun from premium merino wool to create clothing that is soft, form-fitting and easy to care for. The pieces are classic and timeless – think chic ensembles that could have come out of any decade in the last half-century and which will never go out of style – and are designed to be worn in any climate.
Smitten Merino’s globetrotting customers regularly report back with how much they love travelling with their versatile Smitten products. The following items always top the most-loved lists and, when paired with one another, create the perfect vacation capsule wadrobe.
This best-selling merino scarf is almost two metres long and can be used on the plane as a travel rug or pillow. Then, upon arriving at your destination, transforms into an extra layer or a sun-safe wrap worn over the shoulders to protect your skin. It will also dress up any outfit; simply added to a dress as a pashmina or even used for modesty. There are a huge range of colours and patterns available, from lightweight brights to beige cable knits.
This merino poncho is a classic one size fits all – again, perfect for your inflight wardrobe as it is able to be worn several different ways and, similarly to the scarf, can be used for sun protection in warmer climates.
This is your base layer – and also the perfect choice for flying – as merino wool is comfortable, natural and breathable. Add your top, scarf and poncho to complete the look.
Mix and match with the Rana and Ella long-sleeved tops, a staple of any wardrobe. Both are 100% merino rib, loose fitting, cool and breathable. A comfortable option when travelling and on those more active days.
This gorgeous lightweight dress has short sleeves, a high-neck, is ankle length and is great for tropical destinations. It can also be worn in cooler climates when layered with another top or a scarf and poncho if necessary.
