This Prairie Dress Makes for an Unexpectedly Perfect Travel Uniform

Travel and Leisure - Sun, 08/19/2018 - 10:32
<p>It can be incredibly tempting to splurge on an outfit that seems perfect for an upcoming trip. We know; you have to have that sequin bikini for <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/where-to-go-for-carnival-caribbean" target="_blank">Carnival</a>. And that Dolce &amp; Gabbana dress is begging to be packed for the Amalfi Coast. But after a few perfect pictures, is the splurge really worth it? I never saw the opportunity to wear either item again.</p><p>Instead, make your next investment piece an <em>actual</em> investment by treating yourself to something that’ll serve you well for all kinds of future destinations.</p><p><a href="https://www.instagram.com/becknyc/?hl=en" target="_blank">Rebecca Hessel Cohen</a>, the designer behind <a href="https://www.loveshackfancy.com/" target="_blank">LoveShackFancy</a>, knows a thing or two about “gypset” style. Globetrotting from one far-flung destination to the next is part of her life. Whether it’s a visit to the English countryside, a trot through the Upper East Side in <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-guide/new-york-city" target="_blank">New York City</a>, or a jaunt over to the beach in Ibiza, she’s somehow mastered that effortlessly dreamy and equally versatile wardrobe with a line of bohemian dresses and separates that deserve a suitcase spot on every adventure.</p><p>Below, here's how we'd take LoveShackFancy's romantic “Angie” dress from country to city to coast.</p><h2><br />Country Style</h2><img alt="how to wear a prairie dress
