Female business travelers usually only pack key fashion essentials for their business trips and to make things simpler they may include mix-and-match suits, pants, skirts and sweaters in a neutral palette.

But by adding one or two stylish dresses into the mix something much more flavorful could be added to the businesswoman’s journey when she’s traveling abroad.

Packing the right style of dress for a trip means there’s always something special to wear for impromptu dinners in the evenings or last minute lunches and drinks with friends.

Regardless, it’s always a good idea to pack at least one dress that’s smart, stylish and versatile – even if it’s just to provide an alternative and a more exciting clothing choice for any activities in downtime.

Flattering, travel-appropriate dresses can serve as wardrobe essentials and can also always be packed in a suitcase last minute.

For the most part the best travel dresses take up little space, are comfortable and versatile – and don’t crease too much.
