Wrinkle Free Travel Clothing – Straighten Up

If you are like me, then you really don’t care much for ironing. However, I still do it because I love looking nice and neat. So, what more while traveling? You still want to look great while you’re on vacation or on a business trip but you don’t want to spend time ironing your clothes. Sure you can pack a travel iron or steamer but there has to be an alternative,

The alternative is wrinkle free travel clothing. So, instead of always having to pack an iron or steamer or requesting for an iron for your hotel room, check your wardrobe for clothing that is wrinkle free or better yet invest in some today!

Natural versus Synthetic

Who doesn’t love the feeling and ease of natural fabrics like cotton, silk or linen? Unfortunately these fabrics aren’t the most travel friendly because of their ability to wrinkle in the packing process. Natural fabrics are basically organic because they are made of animal or plant based fibers.

Synthetic fabrics are the wrinkle resistant fabrics that you want to look for if you don’t want to worry about ironing and steaming your clothes while traveling. These fabrics include polyester, rayon, acrylic and many others. Synthetic fabrics are man-made and made from chemicals.

Why Are Fabrics Wrinkle Resistant?

Synthetic fabrics are chemically treated to hold their shape. These treatments make the fabrics more stable so that they do not absorb water efficiently and gives them a resistance to wrinkles.

Where Can I Find Them?

Below you will find some great wrinkle free travel clothing finds available online.

  1. This is a great list of things I didn’t even know I needed. I am a regular flier and would love some clothes that fit that lifestyle. Crazy enough, I never thought about how I could make it so much easier to travel with some clothes that fit the bill. Thanks so much for the info!

    1. Hey Jennifer!

      Oh my gosh, YES! There are so many to choose from. Those jeans and pants ARE great, aren’t they?

      Thank you for stopping by my site! Happy travels to you….

  2. Aaah I need these!! I travel frequently and hate pulling wrinkly clothes out of my suitcase. What a great idea to simply buy wrinkle-free clothes lol. The dress is so cute, I need that

  3. I really like that skirt. I have been thinking of ideas for christmas presents for my girlfriend and I think she would love it! We are also planning a trip right after xmas so it will be perfect.

  4. This is fantastic advice for travelers. I hate dragging the steam iron along and hoping there’s an ideal place to use it. Of course, there are people who enjoy ironing; they see it as a beloved hobby. Ick. I’ll go with jeans and boyfriend shirts.
    Thanks for this article!

  5. I love how you broke down every piece of clothing because I am the type of person to bring at least one of each on a trip! I also can say that when I’ve packed I’ve never really considered why my clothes do or do not wrinkle once I arrive to my destination.

    Thanks for the tips!

  6. Hey Geri,

    Cheers on another great post. I have never even thought about wearing clothes that are wrinkle-free while traveling. I guess since I am so broke all I ever think about is where I’m going to get my next meal haha!

    I also personally love being dirty while I travel. I like wearing the same clothes for days, and even let some of the dirt cake up on them so people know that I’ve been traveling.

    I have realized that sometimes dirty clothes can be a good conversation starter.

    “Where the hell have you been and what have you been through.”

    “You look like you’ve been through hell and back!”

    Just kidding, people don’t generally talk about my clothes when I’m traveling.

    But now that I have read your post, maybe I can style up a bit and start looking more fresh as I backpack around southeast Asia!
